    It kind of looks like a greenish smudge. Are you sure this was the color you wanted?

    I'm absolutely NOT a Corvette guy but I think this is a really cool car at a great price. I sat in one on Saturday at the OC Auto Show and the giant, huge, monsterous leap forward in interior is immediately obvious to the eye, butt, fingers and arms.

    One question: Where are the "bunch of straps and nets for the cargo area" that you paid for? I don't see them in the picture where of the trunk.

    This new Vette is one terrific car!!! It is cars like this that make me proud o be an American. Chevrolet seems to have really outdone itself with this car. The Dodge dealer I work at also has a Chevrolet dealership in the next town over, and I had the chance to drive basically this same exact car. It is just absolutely ridiculously fun to drive. I am a Ford man at heart, but they are missing out on this segment. Its ok tho because there can only be one Corvette, and here it is. Edmunds is going to have one fun year. Hey guys, try not to kill each other over the keys to this car, for you are all going to want to drive it every chance you get.

    a question (and apologies if this sound silly):

    1. you have a 7-speed "thank-you" manual tranny. Why do you still have flappy paddles?

    black-painted wheels ($495) hah!

    The 2LT package runs $4,210 and includes power bolsters and lumbar for the seats, a color-matched console, a bunch of straps and nets for the cargo area, power heated rearview mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated and ventilated seats, a Bose stereo with 10 speakers and a color head-up display

    More crap! Get that Bose junk out of there!

    Congratulations, I don't think you could've picked worse color for the Vette if you tried. If you put cow's skin on it, it'd still look better. But oh well...

    What the hell did you do to your website this time? On Firefox I see the What's Hot front page from Friday. On Internet Explorer I see a completely different format for Edmunds and What's Hot, and when I try to log in get nothing. I swear you guys have the most incompetent IT staff outside of the federal government.
