Corvette Stingray Debuts in Green(May 23, 2013)I personally don't mind the black piece, I think it looks okay. It attracts most of the attention to the top half, but is still reminiscent of a race car. I wonder what they'll do with the Z06. I would love to see a widebody C7.
Corvette Stingray Debuts in Green(May 23, 2013)Johnny, if seeing my comments bother you, don't read them or just shut your mouth, because your personal opinion doesn't matter to me and has no validation on anything. And I'm sure we will see some cool aftermarket exhaust kits and rear diffusers.
Corvette Stingray Debuts in Green(May 23, 2013)Thanks, I'm probably waiting until January to order mine, after the initial dealer markups are over. And I have a C5 and love it, but I want every generation. The C7 is my favorite, followed by the C2, C6, C3, C5, and lastly C4. That was hard. Lol.
Anticipating Hyundai's Pickup(May 23, 2013)Older Hyundais= sucked. They were cheap and not of the best materials and quality. New Hyundai= Global competitor, same build processes as the competition, reliable, decent looking, affordable. I admire their progress.
An Unlikely Savior for Fisker?(May 23, 2013)Thanks for the into Ellis. :) Lol. Yeah, just needs an LS7, or any LS for that matter. Hell, even a TT V6 would be better than what it currently has.
Car Washer Crashes 458 Italia(May 23, 2013)Ouchhh. I bet this guys heart skipped a few beats after the car came to a rest and he realized what he had just done. He probably slapped himself in the face, praying that it was just a dream. Haha.
Car Washer Crashes 458 Italia(May 23, 2013)I don't know Ben, but that's a great idea for high performance cars. A "Valet Mode". Lol. Yes, this is unfortunate for everyone involved, including the car, but it's nothing that can't be fixed or replaced. She'll be just fine.
Car Washer Crashes 458 Italia(May 23, 2013)Never venture beyond the realm of your skill level, especially of its not your car, and even more so if it's this damn expensive.
Corvette Stingray Debuts in Green(May 23, 2013)Menacing ass. Whether you "like" the direction the Corvette rear went or not, one still must admit that it's pretty intimidating. It just looks like a tough customer. Haha. Like it's saying "Come at me bro".
Corvette Stingray Debuts in Green(May 23, 2013)The C7 fits right in. Seeing it beside the C6, you can just tell it's 100% Corvette through and through. That's what is important to me. We've got a nice design language, I want to see it evolve successfully. So far, so good. :)
Corvette Stingray Debuts in Green(May 23, 2013)I love the Brownstone leather interior. But it's an expensive option. My Stingray is going to cost about $56,000, and I'm only getting the 1LT! With Brownstone it would be over 60k. I'm getting Kalahari though, I like it a lot as well.
Corvette Stingray Debuts in Green(May 23, 2013)It's still beautiful, don't get me wrong, but I would've rather seen Atomic Orange return in it's place. Hopefully this is only a 1 year option.
Corvette Stingray Debuts in Green(May 23, 2013)I'm here. Lol. But I personally hate this color. I would never drive a dark green car. I mean, it's still sexy because it's a Stingray, but I'm not feeling the Lime Rock Green. I like the Velocity Yellow, Arctic White, and Laguna Blue best.
Looking Back at the Toyota Supra(May 23, 2013)My two favorite Japanese cars: The Toyota Supra, and the R34 Nissan Skyline. :) I'm an American car guy, but I respect those two cars tremendously for their styling and more importantly, their capabilities.
More Details on McLaren P1(May 23, 2013)and confusion, your dad goes crazy and kills you and then himself. And no, I didn't take that too far.
More Details on McLaren P1(May 23, 2013)Andrew, a hope a small, manned aircraft collides with your room and you have to watch the trapped pilot burn alive, and then the aircraft explodes, knocks you through a wall, and you land on your mom's neck and kill her, then out of rage
Cadillac Donates First CTS VSport(May 23, 2013)Well the CTS got bigger though because the ATS is taking its place as the 3 series competitor. And I personally think the rear looks fine. Looks like a Cadillac. Haha
Cadillac Donates First CTS VSport(May 23, 2013)Just wanted to throw this in, but Cadillac won best exterior design award and the best interior design award amongst all it's competitors. ;)
Cadillac Donates First CTS VSport(May 23, 2013)This is going to look great in Cadillac's other colors. Not that this isn't beautiful, I'm just not a fan of the color.
Schumacher Laps the Ring in F1 Car(May 22, 2013)NASCAR has an arena-esque vibe to it that F1 cannot replicate. The sounds, the wind, the closeness of the cars, and the blistering, constant speed at which they travel. F1 is good in it's own right, but there's a reason NASCAR leads the ratings.
Schumacher Laps the Ring in F1 Car(May 22, 2013)NASCAR is better to watch IMO. It harder than you think to drive those cars to perfection. If F1 truly required more driver skill, Juan Montoya would've atleast won more than a few races in the past several years.
Forza 5 Previewed for Xbox One(May 22, 2013)Turn 10 makes great games, I just wish they weren't exclusive to Xbox. From looking at the specifications, the Playstation 4 looks like it will be a much better gaming console. Xbox is trying to incorporate more entertainment to appeal more broadly.
Forza 5 Previewed for Xbox One(May 22, 2013)Hmm, interesting. I do remember some mention of patent expiration. But, if that's the case? How come automakers haven't copied the "Hemi" in some of their engine architectures? Considering the hemispherical combustion chamber is ideal and all.
Forza 5 Previewed for Xbox One(May 22, 2013)That's what I was thinking nxs. Sony created BluRay, and it became super popular. I figured they would kill Xbox sales with declining them BluRay. Not a smart move on Sony's behalf to allow them to have the technology.
MT Drives the GT-R Track Pack(May 22, 2013)@Walker Yes, it definitely could've performed just as well if it looked different. You don't see all the other great high performance machines with GTR bodies...
Equus More Expensive than BMW?(May 22, 2013)They are nice cars, and they have great interiors. Most people don't give them the credit they deserve just because of the name "Hyundai". I give credit where it's due. I like it.
Levante to Give Jeep Italian Flavor(May 22, 2013)This looks "cheap" to you? What exactly qualifies as "expensive" looking in your opinion? A 24k gold grill, aluminum body panels with diamonds inlayed on every square inch? How about some whale foreskin seats complimented by an ivory steering wheel?
Levante to Give Jeep Italian Flavor(May 22, 2013)People say the Venom GT isn't a "real" production car because they start with a Lotus. Does that mean that this isn't either because they start with a Jeep? If Hennessey would've changed the bumpers to look different, nobody would've said a word...
DRT: GT500 vs. Caddy CTS-V(May 21, 2013)As I stated earlier, even the Camaro ZL1 beat the 458 Italia around a racetrack in a magazine comparison. Also, instead of designing an engine from scratch every few years, GM has nearly perfected the same proven engine architectures for 60+ years.
DRT: GT500 vs. Caddy CTS-V(May 21, 2013)And if European cars are superior at handling, why has team Corvette Racing stomped everyone's ass(Audi, Aston Martin, etc.) in the ALMS for the past 9 years? Nobody can beat them, that's why. GM is the leader in the suspension field right now.
DRT: GT500 vs. Caddy CTS-V(May 21, 2013)Woodrow, HP means nothing if a car cannot use it efficiently, and secondly, American cars have tons of torque, which is obviously something you aren't well educated in. Torque wins races. Not horsepower. It creates violent acceleration.
DRT: GT500 vs. Caddy CTS-V(May 21, 2013)Oren, not true at all. I saw a stock Trans Am WS6 run a 12.4 with slicks, almost a full second faster than normal. And it only had like 330hp. When my Corvette only had around 500hp it was still noticeably faster.
Porsche Highlights GT3 Tech(May 21, 2013)The 458 isn't the best handling car, the GT3 is better, in fact, the Camaro ZL1's new suspension technology enables it to handle better and pull more G's than the 458.
Porsche Highlights GT3 Tech(May 21, 2013)You can achieve perfect balance with a front engined car too. Engine placement doesn't matter with the right technology. Ever heard of a torque tube? It allows the Corvette to place the transmission in the back of the car.
Cars and Coffee Boston(May 20, 2013)And if he really does enjoy it more, it's only because he likes the image of having a more expensive car. But price tags don't perform.
Cars and Coffee Boston(May 20, 2013)I call BS Ben. I have driven both, several times. Even the car magazines always favor the Corvette. It's the all around better performer and best package. Even though I do love the Viper as well, it lacks a certain finesse and sophistication.
22 Loud and Sexy Exhausts(May 19, 2013)Oh, what's that? Your European cars have been losing to Corvette Racing for the past 9 years? Ohhh, I'm so sorry. And Corvette is currently leading points? And the C7.R is going to kick ass even harder? Ahhh, better luck next lifetime....
22 Loud and Sexy Exhausts(May 19, 2013)Haha, I agree Tim. Leon and uncharted, you're both ignorant and biased morons as far as I'm concerned. And Leon, my built C5 will destroy any car you will ever own. Idiot.
22 Loud and Sexy Exhausts(May 19, 2013)Using metal on a car like the Corvette would be stupid, that's why the Corvette kicks it's competition's ass. Plastic/Fiberglass is better than metal. Period. And if the Corvette was all Carbon Fiber, it wouldn't be as affordable. Moron.
22 Loud and Sexy Exhausts(May 19, 2013)Who gives a shit what panels are made of? All the best race cars are made of fiberglass, the Corvette gets the job done, and you will never see a dented or rusted Corvette. Doubt you can say the same about your car. People are so ignorant.
22 Loud and Sexy Exhausts(May 19, 2013)@Luke Actually if you knew anything you would know not "every" panel is plastic. There are carbon fiber pieces. And it's not just cheap ass plastic like people make out. And it's a whole lot more durable than metal.
