A mug only a mother could love....

Seriously, is there that much demand for a replica of a Corvette GS?

Re: Superformance Chevy news

Ron,
I am sure there are fans, but nothing says beauty like a GT40 IMHO!

Re: Superformance Chevy news

"...says the new car was created with a high degree of accuracy, right down to the chassis..."

And clearly carrying on from there in exacting, painstaking detail- right down to its 17" or 18" wheels and low profile rubber.

I know other people like it but there's something not right to me about a vintage car riding on those wheel/tire packages. My 40 rides on 15's, or should I say "sits" on 15's.

Chris,

I'm with you, I do not get the 17" wheels.

Re: Superformance Chevy news

The wheels were selected by General Motors for the SEMA display. Standard issue is the trust 15" Halibrand type.

GM currently is trucking the CS around the country as part of the "E Rod" tour they are promoting.

Take heart, FoMoCo is getting involved and you will see several replica cars with the 5.0 Coyote installed soon......

Re: Superformance Chevy news

To each, his own! I think the GS coupe is a mean looking machine. Do I want one? NO!
