    We didn't have the Chinese students, but years of Corvette events and national Conventions tell me that you don't have to be concerned about missing out on spending time with old men, but you'll also get the added enjoyment of having to listen to rockabilly music as many events are "all American" and that means being stuck in American Graffiti for some damn reason.

    I do not miss the club scene one bit.


    Also, I know it's not a perfect one to one, but the base Vette price is pretty much been the same as a Porsche Cayman in the USA. Current price for a base 718 is ~$132,000 drive away, so take that for what it is worth.

    +20-30k for HSV/Walkinshaw/GMSV/Atteco to have their cut of the sales since the dealership network is not GM owned.

    And it's pretty much certain that HSV/Walkinshaw Group will import the Corvette so will they undercut the Camaro.

    Who likes the new Supra?

    Looks good in the advertisement on TV I think.

    I especially like how it looks at least a bit unique.

    I am not a fan of the looks. It's definitely unique I'll give it that, but I think it just looks kind of lumpy.

    I much rather the designs that Lexus have been giving us with the RC and LC cars.

    Saw a red one in Japan last July at the Toyota Showcase, didn't really like it that much.

    There is a silver one at the local Toyota dealership here, looks quite nice.

    You’re kidding, right?
    There goes what little regard I may have had for your taste.

    The new Supra has got to be one of the fugliest cars I’ve ever seen. Right up there with the 720S.
    Horrific.

    You’re wrong.
    Looks are horrible. Performance is nothing special.

    It’ll be popular in Asia but will sell very poorly here, Europe, and the US.

    Happy to re-visit this comment in a year or two.

    No soul with BMW guts either.

    It’s ugly and a disappointment.
