Anything's possible......but I decided to buy a new 2017 C7 M7 convertible 8 months ago - because I was skeptical whether the C8 would be available as a convertible, and manual transmission. Besides, I was certainly not down with buying a mid/rear engine car, until it had a couple model years under it's belt, with more engine choices.

I'm in between vehicles now, have to see what my employee discount is, GM will probably will put a hold on it like the 2014 C7 and the 2019 ZR1 6 month hold they always do on new models, so it won't be till next August for me to get one!

I plan on buying one as long as dealers donít try to gouge!

I'm struggling because of the 'no manual' concept too! Maybe there are good technical reason for that, but isn't that why many of us want one in the first place? May stick w/ my C7

Iím thinking to get one depending on the entry price. If it looks like there is going to be one on the road every time I go out I may choose something else. The C8r photos are pretty damn awesome though. I hope the final product closely resembles it. I did put my next purchase on hold until it is revealed.

Amen brah, if there is no C8 stick and no FE M7 option then I'm out altogether. I don't want another Camaro, and no Mustang, 718, M3 etc. etc. After all these years I'm finally comfortable enough to pull the trigger on buying a Vette but not if it's automatic only. Disappointing.

Been on the waiting list when I sold my 2015 Z06. My dealer was not even aware an ME was coming out, so I am 1st on the list over 2 years now. If the ME release follows GM history when it comes to past generations I will have one in my garage within 4 months it hits the street. When the new Z version comes out the following year I will sell and get the next one as my name will be on that wait list. In the end it all depends if I like the car and look, if not I will be buying another R8 or equivalent ME product.
