2004 Cobra super charged and IRS......a base vette was still faster.
Check again. Mustang Cobra began using them in 1999.
the best looking anything (watch, bike, house, firearm, auto) has a clean, simple design . . . .
the urge to stick JCWHiteny-like appliques on the outside of this car, for me, ruins what might eb a good looking design.
It looks like it's already spent a long weekend in the Tuner Boyz shop.
Yeah, well.....uh....screw you Kalifornia boy!
I know the vette is better at corners. Take it to the track, and it'll be a fun car...but...I don't think of a Corvette as a driving car anyway. I think of it as a sunny day show off car. I don't see many vettes actually being driven hard. Probably because people like my father in law buy them (he's had a few). They drive slow most of the time, and just hit the gas once in a while to hear it roar. I would drive a mustang every day there wasn't snow/ice on the roads.
Thanks. This was an SVT only option, if I understand correctly, which isn't exactly platform wide.
Then you should visit here, where people actually drive their cars for their intended mission.
There are tracks here, if I were so inclined. Plenty of folks on the track in both two and four wheels. I am just not so inclined. (read: wife won't let me) If I were though, I would nab a used Nissan 370z. My step-mom has one, and that little thing is a blast! Cheap too!! Would be a helluva track car.
That is interesting, California must be different than the Rocky Mountain West. I have commented before, in all of my riding-- twisty mountain roads-- how rare it is to see a sports or sporty car being driven with vigor.
You're asking for it
I actually like this new Vette except for the back end. And that seems to have been a recurrent theme with GM for most (but not all) of their cool cars, starting with the '74 Sting Ray. Even the new Camaro(e) looked ok until I got to a photo of the back. Can't figure out why GM keeps screwing that up.
Regardless I'll bet the new Vette will be a blast to drive. Maybe I'll buy one in school bus yellow and clutter up every single car thread in Shiny Things with pics of it too
Some wag compared it to the Pontiac Aztek.
Can Transformer kids afford 'vettes?
They should get John Travolta to pose next to it in his disco suit.
Was Nissan having a fire sale on 370Z headlights?
Worst looking 'vette ever...by a wide country mile.
Wake me when the new El Camino is here!!
Not that ugly fuckin' Holden UTE thing either!
Yup. I'll stick with my schoolbus yellow C5.
your gonna be sleeping a long time...
Looks like the designers took an origami class.
I'll hold how I really feel until I see one. For now.. ehh... not so much. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
This is so true for later hipo car owners...I've owned 396 & 454 SS Chevelles, heavy straight line tire squeeling pigs; Z28s and Mustang GTs which were much more fun to drive/corner like a flat tracker; then a supercharged HKS MR2, a Turbo MR2 that are like fast go karts for the street; then got a Z51 C5 Vette, first Vette I really liked, but man it is so competent and glued to the road it's insane what you have to do to get a little tire squeel or even make it think of getting a little bit sideways on the street, not to mention hands free steady at 145 mph. When I want to have some stealth fun and screw with someone the MR2s are best, but my older Pony cars were the most fun to drive - easy to light em up and get sideways around corners at 30 - 40 mph. When I whip the C5 wheel as fast as I can at 30 - 40 it just nonchalantly turns without even squeeling the tires. My MR2s are right there with the C5s at urban speed limits but cops don't even notice them little rice burners...probably don't know what they are...Vettes they do, whatever the color, mine is a 03 Millenium Yellow Coupe beauty, 7K miles,6 speed, with uncorked exhaust that all Vettes need (+ big power), otherwise sound like Hoover vacuum sweepers...still own the best of these cars btw
I used to sling my MINI around while giggling like a loon.
What a fun car that was!
The Hot Wheels returns, this time full sized...and with visible real life louvers! Its pimpy, like an 80's cocaine ride. Fail.
Spoilers, wings and scoops, o my (eyes).
All it took on my 2003 C5 was a floor jack to unplug the electrical solenoid lead and solder in a 49 cent resistor to turn off the OBDII CEL code that unplugging it caused....only reason GM has it is to avoid the gas guzzler tax...pretty smart huh? Now we have it both ways...
