It’s news like this that always makes me a bit nervous. First it’s a rumor, then there is a prototype and then POOF! It’s in production. As we know Porsche released the Panamera last year. It’s big, ugly and looks like a rolling turtle. The problem is that it’s actually doing quite well in sales and because of this GM is thinking about doing a 4-door Corvette. This idea is not new, in fact it’s been around for quite sometime. Thankfully someone at GM had the common sense to sweep it under the rug.
First off I think that building a 4-door Corvette would be one of the worst decisions that GM could possibly make. The current crop of Corvettes on the market are by far the best ones ever built. GM is also considering dumping in a V6 to try and attract the female market as well. They feel that women are more concerned with the cars looks then performance. If GM decides to dilute the brand with a 4-door Vette’ I fear it will be perhaps their biggest blunder to date. Guys, if you’re listening… you already have a 4-door Vette’ called the Cadillac CTS-V. So please, do us all a favor and scrap this idea before you f*ck up another American icon.
