I’ve always kind of liked the Corvette, and have even began to add them to my short list of next cars, but I never quite got them. This weekend that changed. While going around the track, I started thinking about the MSRP’s of the other cars in it’s class(well, cars that the race cars were based on). That’s when it clicked: While the Ford GT is a car you dream to own, the Corvette is a car you can plan to own. In 10 years, the GT will likely be a half million dollar car, but the current C7 will likely be available for $20k. It’s a car you can actually work to own, without tremendous amounts of luck. And that makes it special, a car that punches well above it’s weight financially.

That said, give it fucking door handles GM, or at least plug in your display cars.
