Based on what I have read, estimated weights and HP, that sounds about right. Hopefully they will use the high output motor that was in the concept Nomad for the future high perf version - would be nice to see it hit 6.0.
What does a Miata or MR2 run? About 8.0 I would guess, so this should be pretty competitive for the price.
that's okay...not as fast as a Vette but probably a whole different type of fun. I still miss the Miata that I sold, even though I thoroughly enjoy my C5. The Miata felt very responsive, agile and light, while the corvette feels very fast, mean and heavy.
I say a Solstice will make a good garage companion for my C5! Can't wait to take one for a test drive!
