    GM has defined a price range for this car. Can they get the $70,000 figure that is being kicked around? Absolutely. Can they get it next year with one big jump? I don't think so; not without alienating a lot of the diehards and I have to agree with Gorgon that the performance people are going to lock into a car and not necessarily make the transition even should the performance be similiar.

    I really could care less if they make the new supercar 70 grand or even more... as I won't buy it anyway. If I pay that kind of money for a car, I want it to be unique... Corvettes are not that unique anymore. the C6 has ideas taken from a bunch of other cars, as did the C5... on top of that, new Corvettes are all over the place where I live...

    I really would prefer if they made a base model Corvette for the rest of us. I never had a problem with my 250 HP 1987 'vert. It was fast enough for the street, nimble enough to throw into a corner now and then, and rode well enough to be a daily driver. With technology, making a "new" 1987 corvette should be pretty cheap.

    The new GTO is about 30k pretty well loaded; give me a Corvette (smaller car) with cloth seats, manual windows, basic stuff for under 30k and I would consider buying a new Vette.

    Default The price of your toys

    I think some of us have lost sight of why so many people drive and buy a Corvette. Whether you paid 10k or 100k for an exotic Corvette. When you sit down, close the door and turn the key. It's just amazing. You can't find that in any foreign car. Most people who buy Corvette's and sell them regret it. I even saw a guy almost come to tears telling me his sad story. A Corvette is about passion and freedom. I like my Corvette more than just about any foreign I have seen (all I have is a 03 vert all stock). Given the chance I think most people would buy their Corvette again in a heart beat and most people who buy something else wouldn't.
