OMG New C6 Vette

Oh god, when i read about the new c6 i just about creamed my pants. My dad has always had vettes and he currently has a 2000 C5 convertible. He just showed me the new Road & Track and it displays the awesome new vette. Try shoving a ferrari 360 modena, previous c5, the new srt-10 and an LS2 400hp engine in a blender and you got some major whoopass performance. I can't wait until the 06 comes out, they're releasing the revamped z06. The previous z06 put out 405horsies and was dubbed the corvette high performance model. The new basemodel vette puts out 400, i can't wait to see how much the z06 will be. Talk about an srt-10 killer.

new vette specs are impressive, no doubt. however, the exterior looks worse to me w/ the C6

I have seen pics of it and it looks well um.........like a corvette. And I am not impressed by the HP numbers cuz either way the new mustang cobra will still be right on its heels whenever it comes out and the Ford GT will still own it.

To me a corvette is a special unique car. It's one of those cars that everyone wants, young and old and is a timeless classic. Of course the srt-10 still rivals it, and the cobra is right on it, and many european cars can outdo it too. But this is one hell of a luxury sports car and history for 50k. I personally like the facelift. I like the newfront end with the headlights. The whole corvette community is awesome too. When i drive with my dad with the ragtop down, and when you every once in a rare often (around here) pass by another vette you always wave. It's really the only car i've noticed that each passing car has an understanding of eachother. Maybe i just have bad taste... i'm probably the only one on the forum that likes the 05 focus.

Oh yea, this car is 3200 lbs and the cobra is like 3700 hehe, plus this car produces its power all N/A. I went to the ford dealership to get the ***us worked on today, there was a mystic cobra rag top for 47,850, so about the same price.

I like the new corvette. I have always been a fan of the Corvette. The front end looks like the Ferrari 360 Modena.

at least w/ the new vette they've got HIDs. i'll always miss my dad's 2003 electron blue metallic coupe car was such a beast when i drove it. i agree w/ you CowsGoMoo, all the vette owners, for the most part, are good ppl. the whole community is great. nice that ever since the beginning corvette owners have all established a community like that. only car that i've seen that doesnt get a ticket for no front license plate either ;P

One of my neighbors has a new 'vette. I've never seen him get on it. It pisses me off.

wow and how about that modern ...NOT.... push rod V-8? wooooo like back to the future huh? I respect the corvette for being the only american two seat sports car, and with a transaxle too.. that is all good. but it is still way behind and for what you get it isn't worth the price in my opinion. And The only vette I liked was the 1969 and 1970 model ... the only good looking vette to me.
