|So, C7's future was leaked this week. But, 'On Hold' may be a good thing.|
1] That is an actual Flickr pic [and it is titled, as above]. So, the 6 year wait for C7 may put an end this body of Corvette fan-dom, just through time-attrition.
2] BBV is sending every GM employee a 'Godfather Collection' DVD to remind them of the following and to shut the hell up with the leaks- Don Corleone: "Never let anyone outside the family know what you're thinking."
3] Maybe that Transformers design is not so precedent [to the joy of some].
4] Could be worse. Aren't we still waiting for the 1983 Corvettes? !!
5] You can't talk about killing off Viper AND Corvette in the same week!
6] The 6 years to 2014 will go by fast - Look at the last 8 [too political for some of ya?].
7] The C6 is a stout platform that has strong legs.
[....eg- Porsche 9 series chassis designs go on for generations, do they not?]
8] With the mid-engine C7 rejected by GM mgt., what if the planned / approved C7 was, in fact, 'a bad design' / wrong for the future? Then, putting THAT one aside is a good thing.
9] NOW, the Corvette design team can free themselves from all style and engineering inhibitions, habits, history to create the next and greatest New Gen Vette ever.
10] Tom Wallace: "NO WAY!"
[When asked whether there was any chance that Corvette could die.]
