Motor Trend Picks Corvette GS as One of the WORST Cars of 2011

Corvette fans, brace yourselves because this one might sting a little. The guys at Motor Trend get to drive a ton of new cars every year, and recently each member of their editorial team picked what they felt was the best and worst car that they drove in 2011. Some of the editors made some great picks for their favorite car, including the CTS-V Wagon and Boss 302 Mustang. The worst cars list reads just like you might imagine, running down cars like the Nissan Versa and Fiat 500C… until your scanning eyes come across the 2011 Corvette Grand Sport listed as a member of “The Worst” list.

When we read Corvette Blogger’s initial report that the GS had been named as one of the worst, we had to see for ourselves, and sure enough, there it is. When we read through the list for ourselves, we first thought that it must be just some kind of typo, but it isn’t. Jason Udy, one of M/T’s Associate Online editors, picked the Ferrari 458 Italia as his favorite car of 2011, while tagging the Corvette GS as the worst car he drove all year. He takes it a step further and states that in his opinion the GS felt “like it had no soul.”

Well, you know what they say about opinions… Check out MT’s list of “Best and Worst of 2011” here.
