Maybe once all of us late '60s big block torque loving 'boomers' are dead and gone, GM will build that DOHC/4+ valve per cylinder, mid engined (to fit the former with NO problems), AWD ride that all of the gamer/ricer generation desires and needs so badly.
The problem is that most of them are sooooo brainwashed into ONLY buying foreign nameplates anyway
(JDM, YO!!), so why bother?
How old are you?
I grew up in NYC.
I lusted after Chevelle's, Firebirds, Buick GSX's, and owned an '81 Pontiac Grand Prix when I was 19. Loved that car. When i was 22, I wound up buying an '82 Chevy Monte Carlo, and wound up with the biggest pile of animal feces of a car, it made me quite sad, and poor, before I finally just junked it to get on with my life.
Bought a '92 Buick Park Avenue Ultra with the supercharged V-6, and loved the engine, liked the car, but it fell apart all around me.
Then I switched over to Nissan Altima, and aside from one front rotor like liked to warp every 15k miles, it was problem free. Bought a '98 Porsche Boxster, and decided I really like small, light weight sports cars.
Traded both of those in for the '11 Mazda RX-8 I currently have, because it blends the best of both the Altima and the Porsche, with the fuel economy of a Maserati Gran Turismo, but without the power. Love this car.
So, where's my light weight, medium powered, high quality American SPORTS <------ car so I can buy it? I don't want a 4k pound muscle car. It needs to be smaller and lighter than the Corvette, and doesn't need to have 400+ hp to get me to buy it.
Also, notice that the Altima, Porsche, and Mazda aren't AWD Turbo cars, YO!!!
As for a mid engined Corvette, I remember the CERV III prototype back in the day. Didn't one prototype have the Turbo V-6 either from the GNX, or the GMC trucks, and AWD? Then someone ripped out the turbo 6, and dumped in the DOHC ZR-1 engine in it, because they didn't want fat bald guys to kill them at the auto show for not having a V-8 in a Corvette prototype.
They canned the mid engined car, because they screwed up bad enough on the Pontiac Fiero design, and went back to a normal front engine rear drive design to make their fanbase happy.
Funny though, I would think in todays age of mid and rear mounted cars, GM could make something that could attract people like me. They just don't want to.
