  3. You would typically want your entry-level engine...

    You would typically want your entry-level engine to be cheaper to produce than the engine that it's replacing. In this case, there's a good chance that that's not true. This engine may be missing two...
  4. GM Press Release: Oh, absolutely. Their current convertible pricing...

    Oh, absolutely. Their current convertible pricing policy has created an artificial, but compelling, incentive to purchase a coupe rather than a convertible...even among folks who would really rather...

    Not Porsche. Comparing their two all-new 2013 981s, they charge $2,200 more for their Cayman (not even a targa, mind you, but a simpler fixed-roof coupe) than they do for the convertible version...
  6. GM Press Release: But see, my last point was that their gouge...

    But see, my last point was that their gouge pricing is what causes fewer convertible sales. They don't need to charge that much...and if they didn't, then there would be a lot more convertible sales....
  7. GM Press Release: That $5,000 premium used to be applied to cover...

    That $5,000 premium used to be applied to cover the cost of modifying an existing coupe to produce a new convertible. That's just not the case with the C7. GM has proudly announced that there is no...

    I don't care for the twisted-spoke wheels that are twisted the wrong way on the passenger side...especially galling since the coupe has such nice, symmetrical wheels. I sure hope those coupe wheels...
  9. News: Yes. Remember, nothing on or about the C7 can be...

    Yes. Remember, nothing on or about the C7 can be photographed accurately...the car always wreaks havoc between the photons and the camera's lens/photo sensor. Everything C7 will always look better in...
  10. GM Press Release: I forgot about that. You're right, of...

    I forgot about that. You're right, of course...and thank goodness, too. The standard top is CF...they just paint it, which is cheaper than what they have to do to make exposed CF presentable. That's...

    This cost vs performance point is completely true, but only in the U.S. GM wants to get serious about selling Corvettes in Europe...where the Corvette's cost advantage is little or nothing. There,...

    Personally, I have no problem with the shape of the tail lights. It's the 3D effect that's a little too "Wurlitzer jukebox" for my taste. The rear, as a whole, is just too busy...but it does look way...
  13. GM Press Release: I have no way of knowing which (or, if either)...

    I have no way of knowing which (or, if either) vent inlet configuration flows more air...and neither do you, unless you served on the C7 development team. An axiom in logic states that when two...
  14. GM Press Release: The Z51 convertible has the same transmission and...

    The Z51 convertible has the same transmission and differential coolers as the Z51 coupe. No convertible (Z51 or otherwise) will get the fender-top inlet vents, as there is no room for them. The Z51...

    Porsche was selling a full-range lineup to a less-downturn-sensitive clientele than was GM with the C6. The 981s and 991s are also all new (though, amazingly, they manage to look very much like the...

    If GM was trying to sell the C7 in the same economic conditions that the C6 was dealing with, the C7 wouldn't sell any better than the C6 did...no matter how thrilled the "thumb-talkers" are with...

    I need to correct an error in the OP. I just finished carefully rereading the April C&D, before passing it on to my buddy. I originally posted that C&D had printed four C7-negative letters. I was...

    While I have no idea what "props" are, I do commend GM for uncharacteristically sticking with the Volt. Apparently, for the first time in history, they're actually thinking long-term. Toyota isn't...

    That Shelby has to have the largest hood vent on any street vehicle in automotive history. Thanks to you, now I know why.

    As another question regarding air flow and amounts of such, I noticed that...

    Car & Driver's April issue has four letters printed from respondents to their March C7 article. The magazine made no comment on the total number of respondents to the article, or on what the...

    They did do it right with shrouding, seals, etc. However, "hot" air from the radiator is actually cool... when compared to the heat coming off of the exhaust manifolds. They only vented the radiator...
