    C8 Corvette

    Chevy unveiled the C8 Corvette today. It's now a lighter mid engine car with 495 horsepower, has a sub 3 second 0-60, and a base price of under 60k. I think it looks amazing.

    C8 Corvette

    It’s


    Whatever performance packages they end up putting together are going to be amazing. Rumors of a twin turbo offering even

    A mid engine two seater that will outperform any European two seater midengine three times the price or less? And far less time in the shop?

    If the Dollar Store and a Ferrari had a baby... Simply amazing, and this is the base model. A Z06 or ZR1 model- Que Bella donna.

    They had to do it. If they were going to keep Camaro and Corvette, they had to differentiate them better. I don't know why anyone would buy a Lotus or an Audi R10. Wait till it eats a 911's lunch.

    Recent corvette's were already an amazing thing.

    Buddy of mine had a turbo 20.. something and it had some serious get up and run in it.

    Amazing car, especially at that money.

    No need to differentiate from the Camaro though...

    https://www.foxnews.com/auto/gm-is-d...ro-report-says

    A new report says that Chevrolet is killing the Camaro, but not just yet.

    The sports car is midway through its*life cycle and won’t be replaced when it ends in 2023, according to musclecarsandtrucks.com.

    I love exotic cars, but am not in that tax bracket, but the C7 Z06 was something doable pricewise and with performance to boot. When I started researching the subject, the C8 popped on my radar, and I have been following the subject for a number of months now. The performance the base model is exhibiting is phenomenal and I'm looking forward to seeing what the Z06 version can do. I predict that, if I can sell it to the wife well enough, there's a C8 in my future.

    I tried to like the ZO6 when I went looking, but the Vette just wasn't for me & went with a 50th anniversary A10 Camaro. The ZL1 & ZL1 1LE being cranked out now are arguably the best handling sports car on the market sharing a similar 650HP LT4 with the current C7 Z06 if price point needs to be considered & smoking many 6 figure exotics at the track...the current Z06 isn't an option for track rats as the small frontal area and lack of needed heat exchangers is missing & they fixed it with the ZL1. Pretty sure there is a class action lawsuit going on because of it. Great car for the street but I am loving my ZL1 & jonesing to get her to COTA. GM axed the Camaro before & they simply suck ass on marketing the Camaro for some reason when you compare it to the visibility Dodge does with the Charger & Challenger. Don't recall ever seeing a Camaro add or commercial & kinda odd they offer the best engineered / fastest in it's class with no sales support.

    I was also surprised to see the C8 stayed with the 6.2 & need to read up on the changes the LT2 offers...I'm with Murphy & cannot wait for the Z06 & ZR1 trim levels to surface & pins / needles for the Nurburgring Times. I'm seeing a $60k starting price for this new C8 but cannot find anything to actually confirm yet. You wouldn't want this car without the mag ride though, it's flat out amazing!! One other thing that amazes me is the new GT500 & C8 are not offered in a manual at launch & both went with a DCT (A7 & A8) vs their joint venture A10 they spent so much $$$$ on to develop jointly. The A10 is outstanding. Times are changing. Dodge needs to get off it's ass and make another car that can turn to keep up with the Stang, Camaro & Vette...we know they can do it with the Viper & that ancient chassis the Charger & Challenger have isn't up for the task in the twistys.

    The car looks amazing with the optional aero. I think it’s a great move for GM and can’t wait to see where they go with it.

    Sub three second 0-60 time on a mid-engine sports car with a dual clutch transmission for $60k that you can actually afford to service. Amazing.

    I'd really like to see something similar from Ford. The Ford GT is MUCH more expensive, albeit a more exotic car.
