Xcott: I think I speak for most people in my generation when I say they shouldn't mess with the Corvette.Except for obvious updates, like making it an automatic, adding infant car seat anchors and a back-seat entertainment system that can stream episodes of Pocoyo, adding more and bigger cup-holders, throwing on a roof rack that can handle bikes for the whole family, oh and of course enough trunk space to carry a mission oak chair back from the antique mall.But it's gotta be a Corvette, so you can take it down Rte 66 once they build enough Starbucks and outlet malls to make for a really groovy road trip.
Marcus Aurelius: But what is the towing capacity? It needs at least a class "B" hitch to be authentic.
Explodo: So, GM is following Ford and sticking their sports name on an SUV and hoping that people get excited about it.Huh.
elaw: Can we please get over this SUV fad and get back to making real cars? Thanks. ;^)
Gleeman: Makes about as much sense as one of those Porsche SUVs.
common sense is an oxymoron: elaw: Can we please get over this SUV fad and get back to making real cars? Thanks. ;^)Worse yet, a lot of SUVs are styled to disguise their SUVness. I'm looking at you, Ford, and your not-Mustang:[Fark user image 850x637]
IDisME: Mercedes, BMW and Porsche have done this successfully for a long time. Even Lamborghini did it, sorta. Why not a Corvette? Someone will surely buy it.
Marcus Aurelius: OK, I CTFL.I was JOKING about the electric part. Only joking.the production of a Corvette SUV seems almost etherealThey need a new dictionary. The one they have is broken. Or maybe it's bespoke.
Dinjiin: The renderings show a fastback, which is more of a crossover-lite than an SUV.
DON.MAC: Whoever in their marketing department decided to use the Corvette name on SUV is going to learn how the people who made Highlander II feel.
