General Motors is about to take a key step for its future in the medium and long term. The commercial launch of the Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray It will mark a before and after since this model is part of a very special market segment. Supercars with a Yankee passport are not going through their best period and the proof is in the number of members that we can find for sale. What's more, even muscle cars are having a very bad time...
