In Delaware? I doubt I'll get a chance, but that is interesting.
Diesel vette? Are you nucking futs?
I am getting a little tired of the overly busy design features on new cars. They all seem to be trying to look like Transformers. I blame CNC machines - it is now far too easy to fabricate a more complex design by either computerized milling of the part directly, or of the molds for plastic/composite parts. They can almost go directly from the designer's SolidWorks model to the milling machines.
Pretty high praise for a GM car! When's the electric 'Vette coming out??
Electric? You're just as bad! Seriously, it's stupidly good, especially considering the price. As of right now, it's the best car value on Earth. I can't believe I'm saying that about a GM product, but it's true. Certain aspects of it are fine, like power and build materials, completely adequate. While others are in an entirely different league, such as chassis balance and differential control (the new famed E-Diff), and the gearbox (custom made for them by ZF). My only grouse there is that it has one too many gears, 6 would have been ideal. Steering feel is near-perfect, as are the brakes. You know what's happening and corrections are telepathic.
Like I said before, it's like someone look the skin off a 599 and put it in a copy machine (which actually could have happened). That doesn't sound like a bad job to have, really.
