Ok, you know what? I’m actually kind Ok with this. Bring on the SUVs, bring on electric SUVs. Heck, let the marketing “gurus” suck out whatever brand equity is left in cars like Corvette, and Mustang. On one condition—- take care of the enthusiasts, continue to make sports cars—manual ones, fun to drive ones. Let the mainstream cars subsidize the little pleasure we enthusiasts have left in this world—don’t give up on the sports car!
Lol. But seriously.. this is a terrible Idea. Just because Ford had to ruin the Mustang name in hopes for EV sales and a trend moving towards the future of auto (I understand we need to move in that direction) doesn't mean it's alright to join the party. 5 years from now someone will pull up in a mini van, and hop out with a "Corvette" key fob. "Yeah I drive a corvette". No - no you do not.
Not a good idea GM. If you think you need a SUV version of a Corvette, how about basing it off the 1953 Corvette Nomad? You could start with a base 6 cylinder, upgraded versions of V-8's, and if you need to follow the trend, an electric version. You'd have room for 5, all the bells and whistles, and you could offer it in a AWD or RWD version. But better yet, leave well enough alone. You finally gave us a mid-engine supercar without the supercar price tag.
