    Great car, I might be a bit biased however.
    The electric diff is no fun, its not very predictable.

      Yes, I hear the electronic diff, while cool in a street application is proving very difficult for racing applications.
      To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?

        I saw a C7 on the freeway this weekend while driving with my wife. I said, I bet the driver is an old white guy. Sure enough it was . Then she said, that would be you so don't even think about getting one...

          Quite a bit quicker than the 2014 Cayman S:

          . . . and way less expensive.

          1.37 G's . . . nice!

            I find it hard to believe that an R8 V10 is faster than a StingRay

              Remember, they tested the base C7 Corvette. I don't think there is much that will touch the Z06 version due in the fall.

                  BTW, I think everything about the C7 is fantastic, except the exterior styling, which makes me throw up a little in my mouth . . .

                    Not sure you saw the news. But C7 can now be ordered with body colored vents. That will tidy up the car

                        That's like kicking your super model girl friend out of bed because you don't like her bracelet.

                            It is. We are currently in talks to get a car with the z51 package(which is the only way you could get it around the track) without the electric shocks or electric diff. It would be a perfect base.
