Well to sum up the numbness I feel tackling chime-ing in on this all to important subject about mid engine, let me keep it short and simple “DONT FIX WHATS NOT BROKE”, reasons why are,
#1 GM should have been spending millions fixing all the weakness’s in the c7 auto trans starting in 15 blunders and replacing all the broken down 427’s for the last 5 years of the c6 line, not investing millions and millions tryin to come up with a mid engine vette while completely ignoring through their legal muscle men, all the broken blown up engines at any given amount of milleage namely the 427’s in the 13’s and Z06’s this in and of itself is a travesty and yet loyal vette admirers come back for more drooling at the mouth over the mid engine, GO FIGURE IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY, most of those with the uncontrollable drool of course are ones who have inexhaustible bank accounts which in and of itself is a consumer power play if per chance chevy buys into it and goes ALL IN and CAVES INTO their lust for mid engine madness.!
#2 theres plenty of mid engine cars out there for sale go buy one if ya need 1 that bad go buy a Ferrari for god sake!
#3 the only true American SPORTS car is a corvette convertible hands down and kicks almost all other cars ass’s with a front engine design in their c7 gen, so what the heck else is there to prove seriously and now the ZR1 bad boy is sweeping the track and drag strips against 100’s of HP higher cars who cant touch it, so again, does this not prove WHATS NOT BROKE DOESNT NEED FIXIN, thinking? Well of course it does and the filthy rich scream on and on give us a mid engine I say go blow you bunch ah big wigs!
#4 Corvettes have always been affordable but their proven depreciation has always been a turn off for many unless their love for one as mine is which burns deep inside rationalizes the future loss’s in event of a needed sale, so I pose this unavoidable truth and question, whats gonna happen to c7 values when c8’s hit the road, when C7’s already loose 30% plus value the minute you drive them off the lot? And chevy boasts of profits only in full sized trucks and our vettes hmmmm I wonder why? I know why do you? Well you will if you read above what I allready typed!
In closing, my prediction for chevy is if they follow through with this complete brain fart light drizzle brain storm their not only gonna piss off a lot of corvette owners but their also gonna lose gobs of respect, oh and did I mention SALES dropping to hell itself!
