Buick Cascada demand outpacing supply. 64% non-GM conquest rate mostly from Toyota, Honda, and Audi.

That's surprisingly for everyone. I didn't even expect it to sell all that well.

But doesn't it pretty much have the segment to itself though? That probably helps a bit.

True, but I think most figured that segment was simply dead and buried.

This has to be mid-engine, right? I've read the current platform is basically tapped out (not sure how accurate that is).

I believe the ZR1 will be the C7's swan song... IMO the greatest Corvette ever produced.

It was reported about a week ago that the 2017 (that's the upcoming NAIAS) Detroit show will be the last outing for the C7, and they'll bring back the ZR1 for that year with the C8 bowing in 2018..which will make the 7th Gen Corvette a short generation (just about 6 years) where the C6 went on for what...9 or 10 years?

If I was in charge of Corvette R&D, I would make absolutely certain to 'leak' that the next car is going to be mid-engined. There is tradition to uphold afterall ...
