    No XLR hardtop means no sale for me.

    Get rid of those old ridiculous hockey stick mirrors and that stupid chrome retainer in the grille, FFS.

    So is this an Autobot or Decepticon?

    the curves on this car scream ugly
    from the front grill, to the side air slit, to the rear tai lights, to the confused hood contour, my God..too much thought, or attempt at thought going on here. sorry but the designer should really study Aston Martin, Maserati, or Ferrari to learn about proportion and style. This car actually makes the GTR look pretty. And performance means nothing without beauty. Look at GTR sales. nuff said

    Ouch. The heavily angulated and rectangular butt end is even further accentuated in the topless form. I hope it looks better in person...

    My ESPN tells me that there will be midcycle design refresh before midcycle.

    I LOVE IT! I had a '99 C5 Convertible that wasn't bad, but this just blows it away. I think it actually looks better than the fixed roof design.

    Chocolate and vanilla, I suppose, but if I get the chance, I will totally buy one of these, maybe in those exact colors as well.

    This car in convertible form screams midlife crisis! I couldn't look at it too long because I could feel my hair thinning potbelly growing and a sudden need for little blue pills. It's hard top or nothing!

    LOL, ninjapunk, try to see past the stereotyping and realize that it's probably the best performance buy available today.

    I never let what other people say or think to hold me back from driving something I like or doing something that I wanted to do. That's why I rode a Ducati and then a Victory cause I just couldn't be a sheep riding a Harley (they're great bikes, I just like stuff that's different than the crowd). Life's way too short for worrying what other people think.

    If they got rid of the air intakes on the rear fenders, how do they feed air to the transmission and rear axle coolers?
