Why is that ghey? With Mercedes, you can get the twin turbo V12 or blown V8 in a number coupes, sedans or convertibles. They (GM) already spread the Northstar around in many forms. Lexus and Infiniti only have like what, two engines total?

GM had better do something to save money and stimulate sales. How many 1.1 billion dollar quarterly losses can they take?
because it's the exclusiveness of their flagship sport car corvette? it kinda destroyed it when you stuck that same engine and tranny into gazillion different vehicles

camaro, trans am, gto, cadillac, etc...

:wtflol:


Imagine if toyota decided to let you have the 2jz-gte engine as an option from the factory for all of their vehicle.

2jz-gte: celica, corolla, camry, mr-2, tacoma, solara, etc....

that kinda destroyed the exclusiveness of the MKIV supra doesn't it. because every single fucking one of their car can get the same performance and modability as the MKIV supra.

If they want to stimulate sales, how about start making cars that are not POS? Pfft..they blame everything on the labor union & health care.

they just did another recall of over 2 million vehicles.

Let them put the engine in all of their models, they'll probably sell more. Who cares if the same engine that is in the Corvette is also in a four door Cadillac. The person buying the Corvette isn't going to give two shits about the Cadillac. He's buying a fast sports car, not a fast sedan.
explain the camaro, trans-am, gto.

"let's just put the corvette engine & tranny in it, claim that it make slightly less horsepower than the vette, and sell it as a cheapman's corvette"


a corvette is their flagship sport car, why would anyone take away one of the exclusiveness of the car and put it in 4 different models?



it takes a lot more than an engine to make a car?

do you think that if the MKIV supra have a 2.0 cylinder engine that makes 200hp, running a ridiculously high compression that it is impossible to mod for more power, would people have much interest in it at all??


if engine has little to do with a fucking car, why do you people...well, all the car people flocked over v8 mustangs, camaro, trans am, corvette, grand national, and turbo import such as supras, 300zx tt, 3kgt tt, etc...
