      That is a shame. I wish these governments would create some in betweener classification to allow innovation like this to exist.

      In a world where more efficiency is needed, too many people put up...

      Oh absolutely. And I wasn't suggesting that wasn't the case. That's almost true of all vehicles.

      Given the market today I doubt GM expects this or any future Vette to be some volume seller. Unless...

      As a trike they can skip on safety standards that would drive the cost up to levels being beyond laughable, but they know full well they must assure buyers of some semblance of safety. After all this...

      They were never planning to submit for government crash regs. That's a very cost prohibitive investment for a start up like them.

      Any trike mfr knows full well the regulatory definition if a trike...

      That's a simple and sometimes complex answer.

      The most basic answers would be:
      1) It makes a profit.
      or
      2) It satisfies volume projects, which the MFG was designed for.

      I'm sure there are...

      GM execs take every opportunity they can to pat themselves on the back.

      The C6 didn't have much of a chance against the Mother Of All Recessions. It's no surprise a great icon sells well as the...

      Best damn iteration of the Chevy grille split & emblem design I've seen. Now if only the US vehicles could get this creativity.

      If this was Ford, it'd be tires.

      If this was Toyota, it'd be frame.

      I would say ignition, but these aren't EV bikes.

      Not to argue, but what about the '27 LaSalle? Or Town Sedan? They started mixing in names about 25-30 years after their first car. And it's not like they had that many models to begin with.

      Yeah, same here. I think the word is DERIVATIVE. It has a lot of very familiar proportions... from BMW to Dodge. Shame, because the original still looks good IMHO.

      Damn near all transmissions will learn from the driver (i.e. Your penchant for lead footing doesn't match your parents' desire to enjoy a relaxing drive that prioritizes MPG, etc. over F&F.).
