    .....I really don't care where the engine lies. Affordable and performance minded is what counts. The Corvette has always sought to prove the point that you don't need a lot of $$$ to get a lot of car.
    I agree wholeheartedly. If the price goes up into the stratosphere, then it will become ultra-exclusive. And we all know where most of those lambos and prancing horses are - sitting in a spit shined garage, never getting driven.

    Now I have to run, you see I just got off of work. I have to go drive my Vette home, most likely in the remnants of hurricane Humberto. Darn, it might get wet. Betcha I see a few other Vettes but not one of those "exclusive" cars.

    There will never be a mid-engine Corvette. This issue has repeatedly come up for years and years and GM always ultimately dismisses the idea and goes with a front engine design. It's just not gonna happen, no way, no how.
