I also want the mid engined Corvette

Itís vapor ware and will only come with DSG so my kind will probably change.

Just thinking about life beyond the 996TT.

What's your take on whether there will be a Cadillac version?

And why don't you just buy a GT3 Touring???

I want one too.

I don't have the money for one, but ... I'm sure it'll be pretty amazing for the people that can afford it.

I thought I saw internet pictures of a Cadillac key fob a few weeks ago. Key fob showed a mid engine profile

I don't really want one. I barely want a C7, and even then, I'm not sure I do.

C7 is almost too good and too far beyond. The C8 is far enough beyond I'm not interested anymore. I won't be able to use it for anything on the street that will make it interesting, so who gives a shit?

This depresses me.

It appeals to me because itís a big deal if GM really does this.

Agree these cars are too much for the street. But what it represents from GM is something that is hard for me to ignore.

The Ford GT is the epitome of your concept of ďbeyondĒ since itís really a true race car made so Ford can dominate LeMans.

This car seems more approachable than this.

It kind of sounds like you've given up caring about driving. You know what that means...
