Default 2020 C8 Corvette

I purchased the March 2013 issue of automobile Magazine because it featured the new 2014 Corvette Stingray and discovered on page 24 an article titled "forget the 2014 vette . . ." written by Ezra Dyer who claims he has sources deep inside General Motors who agreed to tell him and only him what's in store for the next corvette C8 generation coming in 2020. For example -- the C8 will be powered by a pushrod V-8 (sort of). It will have four V-twin engines, one at each wheel. The versatile powertrain will enable the C8 to shift among rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, or one-wheel drive. The article goes on about other concepts. I found it very interesting and wanted to pass the info along for other vette guys to read. The feature article for the March issue is about the new C7 and worth reading. Think Spring!!!

That story by Dyer was strictly tongue in cheek ! No truth what so ever. He was just poking serious fun at all the hooplah surrounding the introduction of the C7.

I heard it's going to have a "cloak of invisibility" and a hot blond option package - with or without bolt-ons.....

Wonder what the added cost for the bolt ons will be in 2020?

Well let see.... The average cost for "bolt ons" now is about $6500 - $8500 depending on the CC of the "bolt ons".... Figuring 10% increase per year (approx) that'll put them at well over 10Gs not taking "inflation" into consideration...
