I have owned a 2004 and 2008 corvette. I traded my 2008 corvette for my 2009 CTS-V. This car is amazing! First it is faster, seats five, and corners great. I can take it on a long trip, I have all of my tech gadgets and most of all I can blow the doors off of almost anything on the road. The best part of it is I got pulled over in my vette on a regular basis for looking fast, in the CTS-V they almost don't notice me. I'm 42, this is my grown-up car.
