- 2017 Grand Sport 2lt. Watkins Glen Gray
Well, I've had my 2017 Grand Sport for about two months now, I just love driving this car. The handling is perfect. I've racked up 2,100 miles already. The car gets lots of stares and thumbs up. Seeing a Corvette here in Hawaii is pretty rare. I usually see 0-5 Corvettes in any given month. Mostly C6s and C7s. This car is very well built and solid. I say that because I've been driving on some of the worst roads in the USA. A recent report stated that Hawaii ranks 48th in the worst roads in the USA, and I believe that. It's like third-world roads here. Many of the roads and freeways here are BRUTAL on the stiff suspension. I normally drive in "tour" mode, which is suppose to provide the softest ride, and I still feel all the imperfections in the roads here. It feels like driving over a cobblestone road or a never-ending series of small speed bumps. I can feel every jolt. I am surprised that none of the electronic components such as the HUD have not shaken loose yet. Hoping my car holds up as I drive these super crappy roads here.
