Many of us here have seen lots of reviews of the C-7 over the last several months, but I found this one to make some thought provoking comments. I've watched a good many of these reviews, but still found this one interesting to watch. Enjoy! :cool:

Thoroughly enjoyed that review. Two admitted Porsche lovers (the reviewers), thoroughly commend the StingRay and other than Porsche's prestige, and perhaps a few Porsche "slight refinements," resulting in a car that they acknowledge cost $40K more to purchase, keep coming back to the StingRay's qualities, concluding that they "want this Corvette," and/or "lust after it." Wow! They didn't even acknowledge the greatly superior StingRay performance attributes, and yet they still concluded how great the StingRay is!

Thanks Chip for finding/posting!

Fun review- As an exPorsche owner I especially appreciated their comments and comparisons and end comment of wanting one. Particularly like the line "Didn't think GM could build a precision instrument and in this car they have." Thanks for posting Chip. :cool:

This nails it for me- I never considered myself a Corvette guy until the C7. First domestic auto for me in 20+ years. And their comments on rounded tail lights couldn't be more accurate- would have ruined looks in my opinion. Traditions be damned.

One of the comments that got my attention (as a S2000 owner) was their comment about the C-7 having a tighter steering ratio than a S2K. That's pretty impressive if true.

The steering ratio in the StingRay is adjustable, between 12.2 (track setting) to 16.8 (touring setting). Perhaps the tester had it set to 12.2 when he/she tested it, i.e., the StingRay could have a tighter steering ratio than the the S2K under certain DMS settings, not as tight a steering ratio under other settings.

They commented that the steering felt light. Wonder where it was set in the vehicle settings as you can keep it light or have it track to the different drive modes where sport and track make it heavier. I leave it heavy in all drive modes because I prefer it that way. Also leave exhaust open in all drive modes as it is too quiet otherwise in tour mode.
