It's not secret that we're psyched about the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. So while we've already seen a lot of the upcoming super 'vette in blue, gray, and even with its LS9 engine in pieces, we're excited to see up close shots of it in red and yellow. And now, thanks to some kid hanging out near Corvette HQ in Kentucky, we have. How exactly were the ZR1s caught? They stopped to get burgers. Just don't tell Jeremy Clarkson; we'll never hear the end of it.

I'm going to be the one that rains on this parade. The ZR-1 is another pointless Corvette. All of that development money that could have been spent on newer products to try and get the General back into form. So instead of newer world class everyman cars, we get a limited edition male enhancement vehicle that does nothing to further GM's reputation. Does it have a lot of horsepower? yes. Will it handle well? yes. Can any of this technology be used for other vehicles? maybe. Will GM make money with this car? that's debatable.

The fact is that this $100,000 Corvette will have all the questionable build quality of the current Vette, with a price tag that makes it out of reach for the targeted buyer. I mean, would you buy this car, or one of those lovely European models like a Porsche 911, Audi R8, Benz SL, or BMW 6 Series? Or even Nissan's GT-R? I'm not so sure.
