Where can you confirm the price will be $65K? Better add another $20K for base. Porsche and others will still have better resale. Takes years to establish a high-end sports car reputation.

^^^^ Not all Porsche's have good resale values. And FYI, the Covette already has a high-end sports car reputation!

Ferrari should not be scared of GM selling C8,
Ferrari is just tiny tiny company compared to General Motors, for every Ferrari they sale, GM sells 50 to 100 corvettes, from business point of view, GM ***** on Ferrari 100 to 1
but that being said with GM quality and looks going up, lots of business is being lost by Ferrari, even though they only control absolutely tiny market of the sports car world.

THE european exotics these days are easily affordable if that mistress is what you desire...

the key reason corvettes are so popular is they are utterly reliable and easy as daily drivers..

the boutique exotics ...? Not so much...

the c8 will be garage mates for those with european exotics as daily drivers and or track cars...

Actually, Ferrari is owned by Fiat. Definitely not a small car company!
