    "It is interesting that, in our days of driving and discussions, it emerged that the Corvette's major rival for this award was the Cadillac CTS. Of all the new cars introduced this year -- from brands such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Lexus, Ford, Jaguar, Land Rover, and many others -- the top two contenders for Automobile of the Year were both from General Motors. General Motors, the bumbling giant, tied up in knots of bureaucracy and legacy costs, recipient of a much-vilified loan from Uncle Sam. Although many will never admit it, today's GM is putting out some excellent products. We can't help but marvel at the fact that they were developed under the darkest possible skies. Given the circumstances, we might not have expected a great new Corvette, but that's exactly what we got."

    "To answer that, I thought about my final drive in the Corvette, down the vicious, dark side of a steep hill. The C7 may not have the flash of the Black Series, and it might not be as affordable as the Fiesta, but down a difficult road or around an open track, it has virtually all of the former's pace with the accessible brilliance of the latter. You can use full throttle, you can use the brakes. You can use the C7, but you won't use it up. It's the most capability that any manufacturer has ever delivered for this money, it's rewarding to drive for everyone from novice to seasoned racer, and it is, definitely and deservedly, the Road & Track Performance Car of the Year."

    Hmmm... The last time I was at the dealer it was 2-weeks ago and I didn't see anything except ATS, XTS and current Escalades, not even ESVs. I'm gonna check it out again then.
