Well since the corvette diehards all live here....
Why do people keep saying things like "theres not enough room"... obviously if they're going to RE-DESIGN something, they take the extra room they need into account.... :roll:Jubilee Vert said:If it remains front engine, there simply is not enough room underneath to fit a transfer case and front axle in the car. Of course they could raise the hood line a bit and make it look like a hybrid minivan/sports coupe.
Jubilee Vert said:This story also comes out of Sweden and bases the opinion that the test mules that they have seen are in SAAB vehicles that have a large rear track. No offense, but GM would not make a SAAB a test mule for the Corvette. It just is not going to be at all like the driving dynamics of a sports car. If they said they saw a corvette like this or a Opel Speedster like this, then I would be more inclined to believe it. Also, GM would not test the corvette in Sweden until winter hit. There would be no need. Haldex has a technical center in Michigan and the Corvette team is securely in Michigan with free reign of GMs premier test facility in Millford Michigan. Therefore, I deem this story to be less than believeable.
If it is, my money is on some sorf of production coupe based on the Aero-X. My dream would be to see the fancy new saab-specific epsilon underpin a front engine/AWD sport hatchback like the alfa romeo brera. It would be a great (and inexpensive) way to make a production aero-X that still would feel like a saab when you drive it, unlike a kappa-based aero X.SaabKen said:I too thought that reference was odd. And for a second I even wished what they saw was actually some secret SAAB model we don't know about. Is that possible ?
