    The problem with the barn doors is that they are far from aerodynamic.

    Better than the older Corvettes? Yes.

    Good-looking? Hell no. It's still a fugly-ass Corvette, and it hasn't looked good since the 60's.

    It looks decent, but for that amount of money you could build a supra or an rx7 and have it perform way better. IMO if I had that kind of money I would spend it elsewhere.

    really for the money, you can't beat it for a off the show room floor car.

    48kish for a car that goes 186mph, gets 27ish MPG, can almost be a daily driver, 400hp, and very good handling, for someone that doesn't want to mod the hell out of a car. Everyone knows you can beat a Vette with a civic, but in the end, your still driving a very fast econobox. My car is faster and handles better then my dads mini, but the mini feels so much more solid, has a much more expensive feel to it. Half the reason is because many of its componets come from a BMW 3 series, and the thing was built by BMW. With the vette, you get a great car. Yea, it has pushrods and leafsprings, but they defently make the most of it. They've been doing the same block for 50 years. They have defently mastered it.


    That being said, the performance is great :)
    Styling blows :( The rear end looks like ass, the front looks funny, and the overall car looks like GM finally got ahold of it. So blah and boring. GMish.
