It's the nickname for the Nissan GTR.

Elff the problem is you all are making reference to the old design and have not made any comments on the new one.
I have nothing against the Jag since the lines are similar of our Solstice.
My comments are more towards the price vs $$$ value.
My opinion and also Kelu, as he has mentioned in the past about the over price European cars vs true $$ value.
My Solstice performance, looks vs $$ spend are more in line with my perma grin every time I get behind the wheel.
Once the new C7 Corvette gets into dealer show rooms this fall, I will take one for a ride and judge for myself if it is worth the $$ vs my fun to drive.
It better be a lot better than the Solstice feeling or there will be no purchase.

PS:
I just read your comments on the Nissan and it just happen the new C7 is also very Geek and it beat the Nissan by 2 seconds at VIR.
Look at the specs on it and you may have a different opinion of the New C7.

The Jag is worth more than the Vette. Why? Because its a Jag.
If it wasn't worth more, people wouldn't pay more. Always remember, things are worth what people will pay. Somebody is buying Jags. Somebody else is buying Vettes. Nobody is buying Kappas. What does that tell you about the value?
Clearly, Kappas are not worth producing but the Vette and the Jag are.
EOC.

due to every review being sure to also remind (or indicate) to everyone that it still wasn't in the same "class" as cars it was being reviewed against.

Because it wasn't.

Is it now?  I don't know. Give me a few weeks. I'll have the answers. But, no matter what, it still won't be worth as much as the Jag. If it was- GM would sell it for that price.
Oh- and another thing - "value" is a really silly argument when talking about cars. 95% of the buyers of either of these cars would have got much better "value" had they bought a 10 yr old Hyundai. The Hyundai is just as fast as either the Vette or the jag in rush hour traffic.

My post was in reference to your Corvette comment and not the Jag.
I should have made myself more clear.

It depends on what rush hour traffic you are in.

That is true. I was out in Flagstaff this past week. Rush hour there means 7 cars instead of 3.
