Uhhhh, try reading my post above.
I bought a brand new G37x sedan for $32k than runs 13's in the 1/4 mile and comfortably fits four adults for ski trips to the mountains.
You can take the the money saved and buy a 1000cc bike to park next to the G37x.
$hit, I'd rather buy a NO-option Corvette AND a cheap used Honda sedan for a combination that is worth the extra $12,000 over just a single SS Sedan.
A $84k Vauxhall, which is the 4 door version of the ZL1 Camaro, is a joke when we can simply buy the ZL1 Camaro here in the USA for $54k.
UHHH, so I guess you couldn't find one either.
Of course I read your post and that's why I posted. I don't want to purchase, maintain, house and insure two cars when one will suit my purpose. No matter how fast or cheap a Corvette it is it won't carry 4 people and if I need to carry 4 I don't want to drive around in a beater.
I'm not convinced a Camaro would offer the same comfort and ease of entry for those 4 people as the SS.
No matter what you purchased your G37X for , equipped like the SS it will list for more and have 87 fewer hp. I would expect the the SS to perform as well as the Infiniti.
The price is reasonable for what you get. I agree that not being able to spec out the car with parts that are already on the assembly line, manual trans, LSA, 4 wheel Brembos, etc and being forced to purchase options you might not want is a mistake and GM had done this before on several performance cars in the past.
The fact that you can buy a used car of similar or better performance for the same money or less is hardly unexpected, I would pick a C63, and next year you will be able to buy a used SS for less too.
I want to buy a new car, show me a better one at the same price.
