    Default Corvette C7????

    Corvette C7 put on hold






    The new 35-mpg CAFE laws due to come into effect in 2020 has lots of effects all over the auto industry. And how automakers do not know what they would do to put this laws into reality, they start putting future project on hold. GM, for example, announced that the future C7, and also the RWD Impala are on hold.

    GM had big plans for the C7. First they said it will be an evolution of the current V-8-powered, rear-drive layout; then an all-new mid-engine design; and finally a car based around the smaller, lighter Kappa component set. But at the Detroit Auto Show, the company said that "a regular LS2-powered Corvette with a 300-pound weight reduction would deliver the same performance as a 505-horsepower Z06. "
    This means that GM will focus on reducing weight in its future Corvette and not on increasing the power.

    Hm.. Can't say it looks overally beautiful. All it is, is a hunkered down, slightly reshaped version of the Corvette C6 Z06. Can't say i'm really bothered with the project being put on hold

    Oh my god. It's NOT THAT BAD?! are you insane?
    Sorry but thats the most ugly car I have seen for a long time. For example the rear lights look like squashed tomatoes. The stance is just out of proportion. In fact the only thing thats not that bad are the front lights but even they are a bit iffy. Just hold on a sec while I throw up!

    To me it looks like a demented Ferrari F430.


    Danm, that means the engines of cars such as the HSV series (VXR8=Clubsport) with their LS2 powerplant may be ceased in the future

    Have you never heard of Google? I mean when I searched that the first thing that came up with what CAFE stands for. Try it, search for "CAFE" on google and await wonders. Next time before you ask a silly question try to search for it first, you never know what you may find

    I have seen those piccys before, and someone put up a comparison piccy of a Cien, and they had the exact same bodyshape, so I would think it is fake.
