It still will attract the retired hawaiian shirt wearing fuzzy dice in the mirror demographic just like all of the other chevy products but it's a great engineering accomplishment and a worthy move to a more sophisticated product.

If they can offer a real track package (aero, coilovers, BBK, semi-slick tires) for this beast, it wouldn't need much else to smoke the competition at the local circuit. (certainly not power if the 0-60 claim is true)
Well that happens when you get bailed out of bankruptcy, zero out debt, then rack the debt back up to $100M in 8 or so years...
A manual transmission can be set to "comfort", "sport", and "track" modes simply by the technique and speed at which you shift it; it doesn't need "modes", modes are for manumatics that try to behave like a real 3-pedal manual transmission. If you can money-shift it, it's a manual transmission.
