What do you get when cross a Camaro a Ferrari and a Corvette? The C8 it almost works except for the damn GM Camaro style rear. Why could they not have brought back the round tails of Corvettes past it would have looked nice .

It’s not perfect, but who can argue with a mid engine supercar vette for under $60k? No car is perfect but the value here is second to none.

The only thing that saddens me is no manual. We lost another one.

that is a shame. c7 corvette manual take rates were right above 20%, not unlike the 911. Its not like the manuals werent selling. sorts makes grabbing an c7 have some added appeal.

wish they’d show 1/4 mile times. under 3.0secs 0-60 is around the same as the c7 z06 w 650hp. hope it kicks the gt500’s ass.

I am stoked to see how the C8 performs and, WTF, base model under $60k?! Not to mention all the options and the rumored twin turbo LTX they going to stuff into it! This could be a true American Supercar to rival the GT40, Lambo's, Ferrari's, and, dare I say, Mclaren's?

I won't be trading in my classic 1990 SR20DET S13 for one though.

Precisely. Vette is a better performance value and looks way better too. I don't even think throwing a manual into the Supra could save it now.

I’m good with the DCT. They said it’s a more direct connection (like the McClaren Senna) instead of a computer babysitter on an automatic that lets you think you’re shifting. Nope, if you’re in 8th gear at 120mph and decide to “paddle down” to 2nd and floor it, well, hold on skippy. You’re about to void your warranty in spectacular fashion down the track.

I am excited to see where Chevy takes this chassis.

I loved the digs at Ford and Chrysler when they were introducing the LT2 as well. Gave me a good chuckle.

To be fair it makes a lot of cars around and above it's price range obsolete if you only look at performance. Can't wait to see how far above it's price range it punches. I have a hunch the stingray with z51 pkg will be very similar to the c7 zo6.

In reality I don't see a lot of people who go for the supra, bmws, porsches cross shopping a vette. It's not just all out performance most people are looking for and it doesn't seem like it's going to be the same clientele to begin with.

Looks wise, I'm not really sold and prefer the C7. It reminds me of one of those video game cars in grand theft auto. I like it overall, but it doesn't stand out as a corvette so much as previous generations. Then again, how a car looks is not something I care a great deal about either.
