Name a better American- hell, better modern sports car than the turbo sky/redline?
>warrantied $600 factory boost up to 290 hp and 340 lb·ft of torque (only ECU flash and map sensors) >forged internals and lower compression ratio than any Miata (can run significantly more boost stock) >RWD >front/rear double wishbone suspension >sports car tier short wheelbase (0.1 inches longer than an FD and 0.6 longer than an S2000) >Manual >Can be had for $4-8K
>he doesn't understand the difference between sport, performance (super sport), and exotic and/or supercar
sorry for your loss
>Corvettes are performance cars
yeah sports cars like theyve been heralded as since day 1
I'll admit when I've been bested, although everywhere I look they're at least 10k
what part of pre-C5 did you not understand?
Long wheelbase, heavy, powerful cars are not sports cars. They are performance cars (previously known as super sport).
>he just makes up these autistic classifications and spergs out when people don't magically agree with these fictional categories
sunday is autism awareness day, everyone
theyve been sports cars since day 1 and still are
the definition of sports car has not
The post C4 Corvettes are sport grand tourers (Gran Turismo) or high performance bordering on super/exotic now. I agree that they are no longer sports cars.
nah theyre still sports cars
a "performance car" would be any car made for performance of which sports cars fall under
They're all 10k where I live, might as well get a c5 or a mustang mach 1.
>actually arguing over definitions for types of cars that don't even have a commonly agreed upon definition
imagine being this person
grand tourers are made to be comfortable cruisers with power
Corvettes lack the comfort
theyre like bare bones cheap 2 seater cars made to go fast
the basic definition of a sports car
sports cars has a commonly agreed upon definition
a Corvette falls under it
sorry ur just a fucking tard
itt: MUH MONIKERS
>A sports car (sportscar) is a small, usually two seater, two door automobile designed for spirited performance and nimble handling.
>small >nimble >Corvette
why are you all so retarded? It's neither small nor nimble. It's over 3200 lbs wet, long wheelbase and body, and is meant for high speed PERFORMANCE driving.
>implying i am even a part of that argument you're both fucking tards lol
and corvette by definition does not fall under it
you're literally copypasting wikipedia definitions to argue with other fucktards on the internet
please step back, contemplate what poor decisions you made that got you here, then kill yourself
>you're stupid and not allowed to state facts with sourced information
Don't care, it's still true the post-C5 is not a sports car BY DEFINITION
Im sorry user
ur just stupid af
its 2017 and 3200 lbs is light
a goddamn Solstice weighs 2900 with a shitty 4banger lmao
it doesnt handle that well either
so a Solstice isnt a sports car if the Corvette isnt
>3200 lbs is light
No i.e. see Boxster, S2000, Miata, 4C etc
C5 is not small or nimble
>Definition of sports car : a low small usually 2-passenger automobile designed for quick response, easy maneuverability, and high-speed driving
gotta love the retard that just shitposts constantly and tries real hard to be an edgelord
the average car weighs 4000 lbs these days
3200 is light
it also outperforms all those cars lmao
They didnt make a chevy version
That's not the definition
C5 is large and not nimble. It's made for high speed performance.
NOT NIMBLE SPIRITED DRIVING You're just an idiot. Go read the definition of a sports car and explain how the C5 is small and made for nimble spirited driving (and not performance driving).
>Performance cars of various configurations are grouped as Sports and Grand tourer cars or, occasionally, as performance cars.
It's right there on the fucking wiki page
hmm there was an user who posted their shifting sequence of their solstice on one of those "draw your shift sequence" threads the other day
I've been reading up on these after I discovered them last month and so far I like what I see. My one complaint is the one that everyone has and it's that if you DD this car there's little to no trunk space especially after the top is folded down. The car was never supposed to be manufactured but here we are. Since they've been discontinued for almost 10 years, unless the odometer reads 0, they cost between 5 to 10 grand (at least the ones I've seen on craigslist in Texas are that aren't gxp).
also it's cute as fuck look at it
lmao my definition is from an actual dictionary not Wikipedia
Vettes are sports cars
>an actual dictionary
>there's little to no trunk space
It's where your pride goes when you settle for the horrid looks, but perfect performance design.
2000 Corolla Station Wagon length >4,340 mm (171 in)
2000 Corvette >179.7 in (4,564 mm)
nice job proving nothing much bruh
its still a small and low car
>its still a small and low car
Well this thread devolved into autism.
the C4 is small, C5 is not
>C4 176.5 in >C5 179.7 in
fucking lmao at your retarded ass standards
Americans really don't know what a sports car is
sad >what is wheelbase
also C3 Corvettes are longer than both but somehow they get a pass lmao and a C2 comes in at 179.3
something that gives the older cars a retarded looking overhang
small cars have short wheelbases
no surprise the C4 is within less than an inch of wheelbase as other REAL sports cars
Corvettes have been comfortable since the C5
They aren't luxurious, but they are comfort, good seats with good ride
yet its just as big as a C5 and looks retarded due to overhang
fucking fanboy losers lmao
The mustang is more of a sports car. This guy got it
the Sports Car Club of America classifies the Mustang in the "American Sedan" class C4 is still rightfully sports car this
This thread quickly developed into someone not knowing what a sports cars is and trying to force any sporty-lookining car to fit in, while trying to call the other faggot an autist. Great j/o/b.
Pic related, the best sports car America ever made.
Does it have the performance package :^)
Keichii Tsuchiya liked it and thought it was better than the NC Miata- Said he would even own one if it were made in RHD.
Where did he say this?
Where else? Best Motoring obviously.
>RHD GM seriously fucking themselves especially in Australian markets by not making a RHD vette and Camaro. Ford is REALLY beating them to the punch on that one and its why the mustang is such a global sales success.
Well duh, but you got a link?
Okay not even fucking with you but every source for it with english subtitles were pulled or made private, swear to god it exists.
I have no idea how I'm JUST NOW finding out about the solstice gxp coupe. Removable roof panel, better rigidity, solid looks... 8 years old and can still likely murder the brand new miata rf... I might have to look into this
Definitely the Union Flag.... I got an early production model. The aftermarket on these is insane. When a Gundam pulls up next to me and revs his reactor, I surprise him since my flag is like five times the speed of factory specs.
Fuck weebs and their rice burners can't compete with american muscle
too fat poor handling
Always wanted to see a Solstice with a regular front grille instead of that trademark pontiac crap. So I made this but then kinda got carried away
Its not a sportcar it a roadster.
Only 1 option
is that a fucking AZ-1??
no it's an NSX dummy
it looked tiny from the other angle
AZ-1 is more /m/ too so he missed out on that opportunity
I like this a LOT better than the bug eyed look they came with. Now split that grill into a Pontiac grille
