Based on looks alone, no thanks.
No amount of performance can compensate for all that ugly.

Indeed. I was thinking more when you grow up but...same thing.

I like it - in fact, I like the styling of the mid-engine car better than the current series.

The C7s are just not that pleasing to the eye to me. I suppose that is because I am a C5 guy, and the new cars are just "angled up" c5s - and that just does not work to my eye.

Love the performance upgrades, but not too enthused about the outward appearance.

The mid-engine car is not the same, it is it's own design, and the angularity in the style works on that car, at least in my opinion.

Now, as long as it is not $400k, it might be a doable thing if there is a car in the $100k range for entry level bottom-feeders like me.

I'll have to get some kind of retirement package from big yellow to swing it though....

best
