that is supposed to come out sorta soon?

It's the mid-engine corvette.  

It looks like it's going to be a direct competitor and priced in the same ballpark(maybe a little
less) than the audi r8 as the only practical mid engine supercars you can drive frequently.  

Being mid-engine and being much more expensive than a typical corvette, it will also avoid the
'corvette stigma' that previously scares me off a corvette as a car choice.

not mid-engine, looks like shit, you see them everywhere, too big and heavy, no exclusivity factor,
poor handling.

What's not to like with a mini cooper?

It's sporty, can come with a stripe.

Vespas are also big hits with the girls.

I've owned a few sports cars but have never liked Corvettes.  I've done a few test drives
in them and always felt like my ass was dragging on the ground.  

Of course I'm no longer interested in sports cars of any kind.  Now I Cadillacs.  
I lease a new one every three years from the same guy at the same dealership.
No hassles, no maintenance problems and they wash it for me any time I stop in.

Now some of my nephews have tried, over the years, to convince me to "go wild" and buy 
a pick-up truck.  I told them I don't like trucks and, as a loyal fan of God's own Ohio State
Buckeyes,
I do not want to run the risk of ever being mistaken for some red neck Alabama Crimson 
Shit Kicker fan!

Even the mention of that possible promotion horrifies Bama fans. Just

I haven't liked Lexus since they went to that big, gaping
'open grill" design.  They look like big ugly fish with their 
mouthes open.  I won't argue about their quality but I can't
get past the look.  

But they do sell a ton of them so there must be a lot of people
who like that look.  To each his own I guess.

I guess when I'm driving I can't see the grill. :)

And , when I leave the house, I go from my den/office through the
family room and into the carport where I approach the SUV from the
back side. My wife parks her Lincoln facing the other way so we don't
bang doors.

As for fish, that 10# bass on the wall behind me has a big, gaping
mouth, too.

There's an old Lexus model that has rear tail lights that look
like it's stuck in reverse. I hate being behind one at night at
a traffic light. I looked for a picture, but I couldn't find one.

I think the one that looks like it's stuck in reverse is the old LS400.

It's the "I can't get a girl without a sports car." thingy.

I guess my brother in law said it best when I asked him why he changed his mind and went with the
bmw i8 over the corvette zr/zo7(whatever the best one was at the time)- "well, yeah he may be able
to beat me at a stop light when we pull up, but he knows I could buy his car if I wanted to but he
can't buy mine"....

probably not the best reason to buy a car, but it's a factor nonetheless.

Ugh, you are missing the point and widely. The "point" is that perception 
matters a whole lot.  The perception is that you are a more well rounded 
and intelligent individual who has made better decisions in his life than 
the person in the less valuable car.

To highly successful, fully metropolitan, extremely motivated people, 
these things matter.  These vehicles serve as a gateway to their very 
souls and hearkens back to our more primitive times when the caveman with 
the best and longest stick got all the cavebitches.

Mike is more man than all of us here and understands us better than we do 
our own-selves.  Think about that for a moment and don't be afraid to 
embrace it.

Perception only matters if they can afford you.

Yeah, Sam Walton drove an old red pickemup.

If show is all one got, he ain't got much.

Fly under the radar and watch for the surprised look when you kick
t'em in the testicles.

well some people just want to drive something that looks 'different'.  Look at the C7 corvette. 
It's a very exotic looking car.  The problem is our eyes tell us it's not though because we see them
everywhere.  Because they are so affordable.

It's a very exotic looking car.  The problem is our eyes tell us it's not though because we see them
everywhere.  Because they are so affordable.



Dood.  Grow the fuck up already.

That's pretty screwed up.  Most of the Vette owners would be grinning 
about beating a car that costs a multiple of theirs and not really 
giving a rsfck what the import driver is thinking.

well thats what I have now, but it's not nearly exotic enough and it also just doesn't have enough
ooomph under the hood.  I want something with at least 500+ hp, preferrably 550+.  My cayman has
350(granted in a very small/light car, but still)....

To me enough oomph gets me 70-100 in so little time that
the slow-poke in front does not know what happened.
That is plenty enough to get along in city driving.

When I hear some one talking about wanting a car with these big souped up engines, I always have the
same question.  Where do you drive them?  Do you own a race track?  Do you own a 10,000 acre ranch
some where?  Or are you one of those guys who go racing around trying to do twice the legal
speed limit?  Risking criminal charges and causing a serious or fatal accident?

In my area the highest speed limit is 65 mph.  Why would I want a car that can go 140 mph?

Safety is a factor in engine displacement.  When you need to quickly 
remove yourself away from another speeding vehicle, the big engine is 
well worth the extra cash.

Only those that love themselves need buy these marvels of engineering.  
If you just don't give a damn about yourself, buy a cheap vehicle with an 
engine that belongs in a go-kart.

My car has a V6, which provides more than enough acceleration for normal, safe driving.  In my
experience it's the guy with the big engine that is more likely to be showing off and cause, or be
involved, 
in an accident.

LOL!  So only those who "love themselves" buy cars with big engines.  Some would
say that only those with low self esteem and a sense of inferiority, try to compensate
by driving a big ostentatious car.

BTW, people are much more impressed by the home, and neighborhood, you live in
than the car you drive.  A lot of those driving flashy cars live poor areas.   They can't afford
a nice home, they don't have much money but they can scrape up enough to make a payment on
a flashy car.  At least until it gets repossessed.

this is true for like mustangs and camaros and crap....anyone who is driving around in a new
supercar(like an r8) by definition can afford to live in a nice area/house too....

Well I never thought of my Cadillac as a "shit car" but, as I said, I don't get
very impressed by the car some one drives.  

Now if you bought Amazon stock in the 90's or Priceline.com at $2 a share -
I'm impressed.

This reminds me of the news story of the middle aged man crashing his newly bought $200K 550 HP
sports car just blocks from the dealership.

Can't you just see the headline in the Birmingham Daily Newspaper.

"Mid 40 year old Birmingham male in the medical profession crashes his newly bought Chevrolet
Corvette Zora on his way home from the Chevrolet Dealership. " I was just looking at this young
woman walking down the street and I must have hit the gas a little too much as I was going around
the corner." said the driver identified as Michael Anderson. "We are seeing this more often" said
the local Birmingham police officer,"People buying cars that they should not because they don't know
how to drive a car with that much horse power."

Nope.  Approaching 40 though, I think.  It's probably why you're having a mid-life crisis.  I
