Maybe it's lost some of its surprise because its immediate predecessors were good cars. As opposed to the C4 and C3, which were supposedly garbage...
I'm really just talking about the base car. They've always been great cruisers and really great performance-to-dollar value compared to similarly styled vehicles from Ferrari/BMW/Mercedes/Porsche
The kind of vehicle you get in and drive every day because you're a bit successful and you can afford it.

Now it seems like they're trying to get the attention of the super douchey track rats who drive like idiots and ruin track days for everyone else. I don't see this car as a high-performance daily cruiser, I see it as a focused performance machine designed for a single purpose.

That kind of car is lost on me. I want a car that does it all.

What other people think of me is none of my business.
