...and I have a few bones to pick with GM.

2014 Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray / Z51 Photos and Info – News – Car and Driver

Cylinder deactivation?

You've got to be kidding me...I want all 8 cylinders firing at all times. Save this technology for the sedans and minivans. (Tmi)

Active rev matching?

No thanks...I like to drive myself.

Hopefully these are features standard only in the base models, and the performance models will leave these to the poseurs. (Sweating)

edit...I guess I am getting old...and am resistant to changes:

no, you don't want all cylinders firing at all times, that would be VERY hard on the crankshaft. firing once per ignition cycle makes more sense :p
