Chevy: Introduces C7, the first Corvette Where the standard model does 0-60 in under 4 seconds with one of the best interiors for a sub-$100k car on the market.
Auto-Journos and haters: Well at least it doesn’t have quite as BAD of an interior any more...
Chevy: Introduces the Z06, one of less than 5 RWD cars in the world that can do 0-60 in under 3 seconds.
Auto-Journos and haters: Yeah, but how much faster would it be with AWD, bro?
Chevy: Introduces the Grand Sport, made up of Z06 add ons with the standard engine under hood. The GS proceeds to wreck every car that isn’t a track-day special around VIR.
Auto-Journos and haters: Yeah, but the engine sits up front like some sort of normal car. So it must be bad and slow and stupid.
Chevy: Drops spy shots of the ZR1.
Auto-Journos and critics: *crickets*
Me: *breathing intensifies*
