    Even with the insane dealer markup these will see it'll still be a bargain.

    Pretty awesome. I love the looks. Torn on the interior.

    That's the link to build one for yourself. It seems to be down right now, presumably from too much traffic.

    Under 60 grand? Geezer that even puts it in my realm of possibility. I won't have one because I could knock 3 cars off my want list for that, but it makes me wonder...

    I haven't made up my mind on the overall look yet. I like it at certain angles and some angles I don't. However that might be because I need time for the new direction to sink in. I feel some of it looks generic but that might change with the release of the Z06. However this look will attract the not so normal GM buyer. They did good on this.

    I was ready to pull the trigger on an m6 Grand coupe but now I gotta wait around and see this in person.

    a lot of car for the price. It does look like something costing 3 times the price.

    I'm not on the Corvette forums, but I'd imagine news of the C8 hasn't set well w/ the C7 owners. Probably some "This isn't a true Corvette... C7 will be the last true Corvette" posts.

    Interior is WTF, but will still sell like hotcakes.....I kind of know why they did it. That god awful row of buttons must be for all their geriatric customers.....so they have an "actual button" to hit instead of all on the computer screen

    Those same posts existed with the C7 when they went away from the round taillights.....Even though the C7 was gorgeous, they thought it wasn't a true corvette

    I'd rather the buttons than an iPad.

    Luckily, this car has both.

    I wonder how the mid-arrangement changes anything as far as people wrenching on their own cars, or will these have to be taken to the dealer for most maintenance due to access of things?

    Like the exterior look, not as much on the interior, but the performance seems to be awesome for the money. That said, no way would I buy a GM car in a first year of a redesign. You'll be the guinea pig to work out the problems.

    If it can be done a the GM dealership I can do it in my garage in half the time. For the most part.

    The taillights were just a part of it. The C7 was a pretty radical departure from the C4/5/6 evolution that lasted 30 years. And the C8 is an even bigger departure in that direction. I like the way it looks, but the "made from a Ferrari parts bin" comment someone made earlier isn't wrong.

    I'd say the C4-C7 were evolutions and the C8 is a revolution. I'm glad they are getting away from the basic design that's been around since the 80's.

    C7-C8 is probably a bigger change than C6-C7, but C6-C7 is still a WAY bigger change than C4-C5 and C5-C6 combined. C7 doesn't even look like a Corvette. C8 doesn't even look like any car GM would ever make.

    I really like the look of the C8. The price point is very reasonable. When it gets the “clutch by wire” manual transmission that GM is developing in a year or two, I’ll definitely give the car strong consideration.

    I told folks that there was no way that this car would be over $70k msrp. Can't believe it's coming in at less than $60k though. That's nuts. I bet we sell a ton of them.

    I think it’s a home run. Besides the weird ass button tree, the exterior looks and performance should make up for that. Only people I saw hating on it were C7 owners.

    What's the benefit of clutch by wire? Most people complain that drive by wire has worse response than an actual throttle cable, it seems like controlling the clutch that way would be more of the same.

    This is not something old school guys want ... But GM is a business and they want to grown their market share. This Vette will attract a lot more buyers who look at a comparable German competitor.

    And after watching a bunch of videos the part that bothered me as far as looks has disappeared.

    Agreed (that's twice in a day... WTH is this world coming to). I like mechanical things and would prefer a drive by cable. Seems simpler and less to go wrong, even though I know drive by wire has been fine for years now. I just didn't see anything all that great about going to it VS using a cable, except for "latest technology".

    Side note: Has nothing to do w/ this thread, but dealing w/ drive by wire. The new Jeep is a drive by wire... my first drive by wire. One thing I noticed about it was the lack of pedal movement when the cruise is on and going up a hill. My TJ's pedal would have been to the floor and I'd know it in my foot that it was putting out a good bit of effort. The new Jeep, the pedal doesn't move when the cruise is set. I like the foot feedback of a drive by cable.

    With GM... cheap parts aren't cheap. "Here's a very thin sheet of plastic. That will be $500. Thanks"

    Not I! Too big of a jump for me to want the first year; I don't trust GM enough. I do like it a LOT though. So, maybe a 2021 model, but will be considering a 2021 GT500 too.

    So if I'm reading the rumors correctly....................

    Next up is the Z06 version with a twin turbo 4.2 DOHC motor making 700+ hp.

    To be followed with a ZR1 version that's a hybrid with both the TT motor and an electric, making over 1000 hp combined, and with AWD.

    So any ideas on the other 4 vehicles you'll have for the 2021 model year?

    I can see it... going to a mid-engine platform just opened up a whole nother level of potential growth.

    well yeah, a normal person would not buy the first year run...
    but i figured you would want to be one of the first ones to get one...drive it for a few months and dump it.

    You dont have to trust them since you will only own it 7-10 months.

    That’s what bugs me about the interior so much. You know that tablet is just a cheap piece of plastic sitting on the dash so they’re showing off a POS display. My mom recently got a loaded out Lincoln Navigator and it’s the same way. Those tablets look like garbage sitting off the dash like that. I really want to like it. I’m digging the exterior and I could possibly be in for a z06 but I just don’t know about that interior.

    Either still rocking the JLU (with some more mods), Raptor or Rebel TRX (Hellcat, if that ever happens, https://www.motor1.com/news/356828/r...trx-spy-shots/ ) and maybe a widebody Hellcat Charger. If the Angel becomes real then
