    I like this article better than the random ones that pop up on my Facebook news feed.

    GM knows how to make some pretty awesome antiquated technology. Looks pretty nice for a slushbox. Gonna have to make up a new nickname for them.

    I really want to like the C7 but back looks outdated already. It also reminds me of Kiss rock band for some reason.

    How does it look dated?

    I'm still struggling with the rear end (especially the rear lights), but the rest is gorgeous IMHO. I also love how small it seems in person.

    That angle is good but no one see's it in that angle while driving. This is the angle I was referring to:

    I mean I like it. It's subjective but it doesn't appear outdated to me. Looks very fresh.

    I want this car.

    Hahaha, So true

    I love the C7 look, though the ass is not anywhere even close to as sexy as the new Gen 5 Viper. The new Viper rear end is as good as it gets - like an Aston Martin but with more muscle. The C7 front however looks way sharper IMO than the Gen 5 Viper. It's all subjective I know.

    The STS C7 TT at SEMA looks interesting - for once they did their homework, and the intercooling does not interfere with the engine cooling or aero. The othewise stock C7 (engine wise) is said to be good for 650 at the wheels with the twin remote mount. Oiless turbos too.

    Another thing - wonder if the new 8sp auto ZO6 can hot lap a few track laps and handle some closed road racing with plenty of twists and low speed turns.... AMG 7 speed can do it with cooling upgrades, but they have clutches not a converter. Autos with converters traditionally hate road racing if tight - can't handle the heat

    You're referring to the wet clutches that take the place of the converter.

    I'm sure GM did their homework on this thing regarding the Z06 and lapping.

    Anyone that has to constantly cuss to get a point across is f'ing stupid regardless, but that guy was certainly 3 cans short of a 6 pack.

    "If it doesn't have $#@!ing DCT and AWD I'll tit punch those cock sucking sonnabitches. Mother $#@!ers. $#@!."

    Or something to that effect.

    I have a problem with the rear view too, but mainly with the ridiculous quad tailpipes. Easily fixed, and it's not like you have to see that while driving. Indeed, that's the view just about any other car on the road will have. ;-)

    Not to thread jack, but you already got rid of your STI? I love the M235, but man, you change cars like I change my underwear (about every 6mo - that's just how I roll). Click here to enlarge

    LOL, yeah... The STI was great out here on the back roads, but doing the long haul up to Denver left a lot to be desired. Somehow xDrive on the M235 was never on my radar until recently and a simple test drive turned into a new lease. Click here to enlarge

    That's awesome. I love the M235 (even 228), but still need 4-doors. Strongly considering an S3...

    S3 or Golf R would be great if in need of a real back seat. Can't go wrong either way...
