    An affordable Alfa sports car takes to the stand this week — does the idea of a sleek twin-cam coupé appeal, or is it two cylinders short of a picnic? Last week's Chevrolet Corvette C4 ZR-1, despite its record-breaking heritage and exotic powerplant, was left for dead in the water by the majority of you.It might have packed the right kind of punch, but its dated looks and perceived non-European fit and finish meant that most would still rather opt for the slower and more costly Porsche...

These hikes won't affect customers who have already placed an order, however. The company says that demand now far exceeds its initial forecasts, especially when it comes to the Z51, so it had no choice but to sell the Corvette Stingray at a higher price. In the U.S., the coupe will go from $51,000 to $53,000 (Z51: $57,000), while the convertible will jump to $58,000...
