It’s mid engine so now you can hear the roar of the LT engine right behind your head

How long has it taken them to design a mid engine corvette.   I still would not buy one

How long has it taken for other manufacturers to catch up to the Corvette?

pifff please only until recently they've discovered the wonderful world of independent  front/rear wishbone suspension w/coil springs.  The C6 corvetter was mostly made of plastic.  Most of the older ones could not take a corner without breaking lose

And yet that "piece of plastic" C6 has a faster track time around Laguna Seca(track notorious for it's turns) than cars like  the Audi R8, McLaren MP4-12C, McLaren 570S, Nissan GTR, and Lamborghini Aventador. All these cars cost $100k-$200k more than the Corvette C6.

The C7 just furthered that track time to an even better rating on the Laguna Seca all-time list.

I see they finally scrapped the pushrod design for a DOHC head and nearly doubled the stock power output

That is very true and it is impressive but afterwards when you leave the track and go home the thing is terrible to drive on normal roads.  The reason the closes competitors cost 40,000 more is because you can use them on the track and be reasonably comfortable after the track days over.  I've driven a C7 z06 and at low RPM's it makes the most terrible noise imaginable,  The tire roar on these thing is bloody awful, The interior is made of 90% cheap plastic trim, The suspension has no give thus making it bumpier than a horse and buggy on the road and I've never liked the gearbox.     That been said these are all my person opinion on the vehicle and are not facts.   


That's what make us gearheads a great community we all like cars as a hole we just prefer different layout and configurations

I've driven a C7 z06, and at low RPMs it makes the most terrible noise imaginable. The tire-roar on these things is bloody awful. The interior is made of 90% cheap plastic trim, the suspension has no give, thus making it bumpier than a horse and buggy on the road and I've never liked the gearbox.

As someone who drives the 2015 z06 regularly (and has more experience on the mechanical side than the layman) I can verify that none of these are really true. I've never once noticed an unimaginably awful noise at low RPMs; it sounds different but every vehicle sounds different. Tire-roar is there but it's absolutely nothing to write home about negatively. Interior is poorly designed but it is by no means cheap. And it's honestly a pretty smooth ride overall.

Truthfully my biggest problem with the C7 is the interior design and 360° visibility. You simply cannot see your blindspots nearly as well as you could in previous generations. For example I drive a C4 mainly in the summer and that thing feels like an aquarium on wheels with its visibility.

Were talking about the previous gen the C6 z06.  Like I said in the last paragraph   That been said these are all my person opinion on the vehicle and are not facts.
