    A "GT3" Corvette would be a novel concept... Not sure how it would sell, but could be cool if GM did a legitimate limited-run (not some Indy 500 crap).

    Just this last weekend I came across an old poster I have of an Arena Red 993TT - "Kills Bugs Fast" :D

    College buddy of mine had a IROC Z in school. While it felt brutally fast, it squeaked louder than a cheap mattress under a fat couple. I told him that he was driving a redneck Ferarri but I knew I would never ever EVERY own one.


    He also had a K5 Blazer, the kind with the removable rear section.


    he was black [​IMG]

    and a t-top IROC-Z camaro with the obligatory rear window metal louvers were the stereotypical redneck vehicle in those days. The odds of a black kid owning both were pretty high. We used to laugh about it all the time even though the simplest explanation was that he came from a "Chevy family" and that was all that they bought.

    One of the better sounding cars under $100K.

    It's just too bad about the pricing. In the M3 range would have made more sense.

    The reported coupe version is awesome.

    Are the F-Type and M3 really aimed at the same audience? BMW has made it incredibly hard if not impossible for any company making boxes with 4 wheels to take the M3's crown in that domain.

    Other cars where I feel the company has a dominant position and though some may argue, hasn't been toppled from their lofty spot in America: Hot Hatch: VW GTI, Little Roadster: Mazda MX5.

    I am a bit biased as I own a GTI but i'll be damned if I haven't had a smile on my face when I look at my '12 GTI. My favorite time is when I load it up with lumber and all sorts of things at the Lowe's/Home Depot and drive off without issue.

    The F-Type's aimed at the same audience looking at 911 Cab's. Whether that was Jaguar's goal or not the $92K price tag puts it there. A 911 Cab starts at $96K. At those prices I would have a hard time not going with the 911 Cab.

    If they started at around $83K base would have made more sense to me. That pricing is a little more than a fully loaded M3 convertible.

    The way I optioned mine, it costs around $106K. At first I thought it was way too expensive and Jaguar made a serious pricing error, but I think it's just about right, now that I think about it. It's not meant to compete with the M3. The supercharger is also a huge plus. That coupe version looks amazing -- I want, but in BRG.

    Who the hell wants a base 911? At very least I want PSE.
