    Cool idea for a thread!

    My daily driver is an FR-S which, since I'm up here in Canada, is also my "winter beater". Yes, both my vehicles are sports cars. What can I say?

    Also used for autocross for several years since Scion had a good contingency program.

        Yup, winter tires on the stock wheels, sticky tires on the aftermarket wheels shown above. When I get my C8, seems like I'll end up with two red cars in the driveway! I'll have to fix that...

            But much more practical than mine. You can tell I don't have kids. Priorities change when you have to haul around more passengers and baggage!

            Your Pilot looks almost like a Shadow Gray Metallic color.

                We have NO kids, or Grandkids either !!! It's been handy as we were going back and forth between Gettysburg and our lake home at Smith Mountain Lake, VA. Especially with a 30 pound dog. Unfortunately, the dog went to heaven 2 months ago and we sold the lake home in April after 9 great years. Wanted to be able to go to FL and rent oceanfront every Jan and Feb to get out of the cold here in PA in winter.

                We early traded our '17 Grand Sport 3LT for a early round MSRP C8 spot with a dealer in PA. So now, the Pilot is the only set of wheels. Can't wait !!!!

                it's actually BLUE. Really great color when the sun hits it.

                        My "special occasion" driver, when I need more room or there's snow and salt on the ground. This is the first car I've owned with an automatic. I guess the C8 will be my second.

                            I love my DD. It’s throttle mapping is as far from linear as possible, and its rally suspension is harsh — and because of these two things, every drive even to the gym or the grocery store is a joy. My wife and I just agreed early today that when the next gen WRX comes out, as Subaru has announced that that will be last WRX gen to have a manual (as ours does), we will buy one and keep on smiling. Like all our cars, it has approaching 40 mods I have done. This is the car we annually drive from Oregon over the Rockies to BG to the Bash — for snow and ice accompanies us on every trip; has Michelin A/S 3+ and with its AWD it will go in 8” of snow if needed.

                            BTW, my gearhead wife too loves driving my WRX when I am not (even sometimes when I am looking for it LOL).

                              My wifes ride ...we use this on our weekly date...

                              racy little sports cuv...

                              i hope gm produces a corvette cuv so next time I can spend my money with GM...

                              this little awd road rocket races to sixty in 5.1 seconds..has all the luxuries like excellent sport bolstering seats and seat heaters etc...and has been utterly reliable...i highly recommend the alfa if anyone is ever thinking of one.

                              averages 24 mpg around town too...

                              the way I see it if gm offered a corvette sports cuv we as corvette enthusiasts could double the unit sales of corvettes pretty easily...(think porsche macan or a better styled tesla model Y with corvette overtones to have a matching garage mate ..) look at how many cuv s or awd sedans we as corvette enthusiasts own in addition to our corvettes..(2022 seems like the time frame with recent corvette and GM discussions)
