GM scouring the globe for next Corvette design

  1. you are right, it's shit, it must be made of gold and little kids skin
     
  2. I'm pretty sure you're talking out of your ass and haven't ridden it in person. Because if you had, you'd realize the shiny bit on the door of the A4 is genuine wood. Not cheap fake pieces of shit. There are also genuine bits of aluminum on the doors and dash too. Granted, I will concede that cavemen of your caliber wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

    If you think the Corvette's only interior problem is one of design, you're sadly mistaken.

  4. corvette needs way better aero, tires and high speed stability. DCT trans will help reduce friction loss for better performance.
     
  5. The Corvette needs a lot of things in many areas, but for the price, the only thing that it's missing is a nice interior and seats.
     
  6. Really, that real aluminum felt pretty plastic like to me. Perhaps you meant aluminum painted. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A> Tool

    Of course it would feel like that to *YOU*. Like I said, most slack-jawed knuckle-draggers wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

    Check 1st and 7th listing under Interior:

  9. audi had pretty shit quality interiors in the 00s. still 100x better than any shitbox american car.
     
  10. Check out the Cadillac Sixteen or Lincoln MKR concept, then come back and talk about "any shitbox American car."

    In all truth, most American car companies choose not to put great interiors in most of their mass-produced cars, but that's because they wanna save money - not because it's supposedly a lack of actual capability in doing it. There is a huge difference.

    But I know, that if they want to compete with Europeans, they need to start putting nice interior in their cars. American companies have been so used to being able to sell cheap interiors to American buyers because the competition in the U.S. is not too high. European cars do not flood in here at same or cheaper prices, so American car companies can get away with the cheap interiors. However, it seems their sales have dropped over the years because they became complacent, like morons, and thus why GM went bankrupt and had to be bailed out. Now they're slowly learning their lesson the hard way, but they're improving.

    If Europe directly bordered the U.S., then American car companies would be easily competing with them on interior, handling, and all-around quality, without a doubt. If people actually understood the real reasons behind why things are the way they are today, they'd be a little surprised.

    One example: Boeing sat on their complacent asses for years and chose not to develop any new, revolutionary innovations in airliner technologies, all up until Airbus wanted to try and take sales from Boeing by making the A380 and now the A350... so what happened? Boeing got off their asses and made the most technologically advanced airliner ever: the Boeing 787 Dreamliner

    It's all about companies needing competition to set a fire under their asses as incentive to constantly make better products. European companies have so many from all different countries, this is why they have constant competition to fight against and thus is major incentive to stay on top of developing new technologies, since they'll lose major sales is they slack off.

    American car companies, again, did not have to put up with such things for a while... until recent times. Things are changing now.

    Did you also know that the carbon fiber used on some F1 cars, like Barrichello's 2009 season F1 car, is made in the U.S.? Yes, it is. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    I think Boeing should get into making cars for the U.S., then we'd eventually dominate the market! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  11. they should just copy the NIssan GT-R for the next corvette.
     
  12. Uh huh, tell me more about the production versions of these, I am interested.
     
  13. I said concept, so obviously they're not in production (but they could be, if the companies really wanted them to be).

    The main point was that these American companies prove to have the capability in making GOOD interiors, thus it's not a supposed 'lack of American skill' concerning interior; it's really by their choice, to save on costs, that they usually throw in cheap interiors. They know they can usually get away with it over in the U.S. Read the entire post again and see that one of the main reasons is lack of major competition in the U.S.

    We need more competition here, so as to light that fire under their asses, and they'll be forced to improve or go out of business. GM learned their lesson the hard way, and notice how they are improving on reliability quality, and are now making leather interior optional for some of their cars, as well. Things are changing now.

  24. maybe technically, still no one would call it an hatchback
