Did you see that in 2017 the Vette will be mid-engine? No rumor, GM confirmed it.

OK, so I saw the 2016 RC 200T at my dealer last week and what I noticed is that there is only a few thousand dollars difference between it and the RC 350 F-Sport. Why would anyone get the 200T since the HP is only in the mid 200's?
