    will GM seek litigation against said corvetteblogger as I'm sure there is some sort of embargo on the release of pictures/details about the new ZR1 from sources other than GM?...proof that the $100k sports car market is alive and kickin' as the selection in the $100k-150k sports car segment is quite numerous. Guess this is why Nissan let their Z-car struggle on for 8 years...
