Agreed. This should be badged as a Cadillac in my opinion, not a 'Vette.

Of course, if they did the smart thing and morphed Corvette into a brand with two to three sports cars and two crossovers (Macan/Cayenne) and cobranded with Cadillac, they would have a great premium performance brand.

Manta Ray / V6 RWD coupe/convertible $40K base aimed at Cayman
Stingray / V8 RWD coupe/convertible $60K base
Zora / V8 mid-engined coupe

Piranha / RWD/AWD crossover aimed at Macan
Mako / RWD/AWD crossover aimed at Cayenne

The problem is that a supercar does NOTHING for a maker of sedans and crossovers. The LFA did nothing for Lexus and the NSX did nothing for Acura because the ideological gap--and likely the price gap--is too wide to cross. Like Cadillac, neither Lexus nor Acura has a sports car history.

The supercar for Cadillac would have been the Sixteen.
