    We'll see if they get it but for now... auto.

    So, this is "it"? It's not a concept? This is what you'll be buying? Reminds me of a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano with Cadillac CTS sharp edges. They're saying 450 HP. I wonder what will happen with the new Z06 type trim. IDK, ZR1 does nothing for me. But, right now, I think a pre-owned Z06 is the most car for the money, hands down.

    That's a good way to put it actually.

    I wasn't all that impressed with the Viper in person. I think the Vette design is more progressive.

    I wonder if they could pull of a DCT with the LS7.

    On one hand a DCT Z06 would be damn interesting but I wonder if its goes against the cars original ethos. I think it would be a worthy addition to the car. Especially if they want to get more buyers abroad

    They are already doing an auto.

    I mean the SRT guys considered it for the Viper but they couldn't do it. If Chevy could it would be a great engineering feat IMO and worthy of respect and admiration strictly from a technological engineering standpoint.

    For the base car yes no confirmation of an auto for the Z06 or for that matter if there will be a Z06. T

    he issue is whether the want to expand the Z06 brand with that trans. From a Vette owners standpoint the car is a purist car. Lightweight, all motor and a manual trans. I think it could work if they can make one to handle the power. I wouldnt buy it but it would sell I imagine

    I know the Z06 has never had an auto I'm just saying it would be impressive with a motor the size of the LS7.

    I agree I just dont see them going that route for the Z06 but to capture the european customer on their soil it makes a ton of sense for sure. It would complete the evolution to a true global platform

    The funny thing is, is that when i was overseas, the corvette was the skyline.. all the car mags were flaunting a zed as a super car, ect. so i think our perception is distorted some as to what actually compares to what. With a dct, foreign market will open up, as well as a real shot at pitting the vette against real supercars

    The Corvette overseas is quite a site to behold. Rare to see and a gigantic motor for them. I plan on getting myself one for Poland. I'll probably have the only one.

    looks like a Ferrari 599 GTB with Cadillac CTS-v edges. saying 450HP. Interested to see what will be happening with a Z06 version. ZR1s don't really do it for me. I feel the C6 Z06 is the most car out, for the money at this time. Not sure if I like the look from the rear. I am interested to see the new Viper and the Stingray. I'd love to compare them in person. I hope they'll both be at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show. Everything looks different in real life. Im really scared the Vette will look "cheap". T-minus less than one month to the show...

    Any idea on price point(s)? Is it going to be similiarly priced to the Gran Sport Coupes (around $56k?) or more close to the LT base prices... That's the one bit of info they left out...
