Meh... I was never a sports cars enthusiast.... And even if I was, with the roads in Quebec, I wouldn't be able to enjoy a stiff car. I'm looking for the best comfort\silence and reliability\repairability for the price. I'm okay with 0-60mph in anything below 8.5 second. Actually, for me, the 60-73 time (passing someone on the highway) is more important to me than 0-60 time. But these usually go hand in hand.

I take it that the roads are crappy up there, lol.

The roads are great here and I love the looks of those vehicles, but they would not be my choices unless I win a lottery and they would just be pocket change to buy and if I had a slot opened in my six car garage. ( I don’t currently have a six car garage, but would if I won the lottery)

Ironically many EV’s are as fast or faster than a number of the sports cars of the past.

Yeah, in Quebec, we get some roads on our potholes, not vice versa. I wouldn't drive a Corvette even if I won the lottery. I'd go for something like a Lincoln or Cadillac SUV if I had tons of money to spare. Silence and comfort is my thing... And it's not an age thing (39 ATM), I've been acting old since my early 20s. When I want a thrill, I go to a water park, snowboarding, or a rollercoaster... Somewhere where I don't put others in danger, and vice versa.

There's a Corvette battery/gas hybrid coming in 2023 and a Corvette EV in 2025.

Chevrolet hasn't released many details yet, but it has confirmed that the Corvette EV is on the way. We expect a powerful, three- or four-motor powertrain with around 1000 horsepower and standard all-wheel drive. The two-seat interior will likely carry over from the gasoline-powered Corvette.

GM President Mark Reuss confirmed today on CNBC that a Corvette EV is nigh and that it is coming soon after Chevy launches a hybrid model in 2023.

The electric Corvette will use GM's Ultium batteries and could be called E-Ray. It will come after a hybrid that's rumored to have 1000 hp.

Everyone has their own likes, I have never been a Cadillac kind of guy. Although I once owned a Camaro for 2 to 3 years, I have never had a true sportscar and a Vette or a Porsche is still appealing to me, but will likely never be a possibility to own, and to be honest, you can’t ever legally drive them to their potential. We have always been a two car family, and they have always been more practical vehicles.

Once again, you could never drive this car to it’s potential and I have no interest in it, but the Ioniq 5 N series car is supposed to go 0-60 in under 3 seconds and have the suspension and braking to match it’s performance. EV’s can match the performance of super cars, at least in speed.

The big takeaway here is there will be an EV in almost every market niche. It addresses the need for buyer choice. You and I don't want a sports car, but for those that do, they will have an EV option.
