LaFerrari, 918, P1. Those are hypercars, and the NSX brought tech that is actually superior. They just kept it at the [super]sports-car level for performance and pricing.

Wait and see if the next-gen $1M+ hypercars aren't hybrid? They'll be at least that.

BTW this Vette looks ****** awesome so far.
fixed the post so itís not like Napoleon dynamite talk

I'm mean to you because you are negative 100% of the time, and mostly it is unfounded and ill-informed, like right now.

You say the i8? That's one car, and the NSX ***** all over it in terms of performance for pretty much the same money. Not even sure the i8 can keep up with my Golf.

The rear is an actual picture and the bottom is an addmitted photoshop. you can see the front bumper is all different than the mules. We'll find out next week what it actually looks like

Until the engine blows up, falls out, explodes because BIlly the builder was drinking at lunch and missed a few bolts cause he never worked on a mid engine car before and has no clue what he is doing.

If those renderings are accurate it looks a little dated but not bad.

It looks too much like a corvette, that’s the problem

But seriously it’s the C7/Camaro feels that ruins the car.

Why not start entirely from scratch

I want to like it but something feels off.

Maybe the proportions?

The rear end photo doesn't look too bad. It looks like an interracial couple. CTR falls in love with Corvette.

In all fairness, I'm not too mad about the styling if it is indeed, bland. They gotta cut corners somewhere if this is going to be an affordable MR car.

assuming the pricing is correct, the only comparison is going to be against a decade old base model R8 price wise
