I can't imagine what these threads are going to be like if its not released by the Detroit show lol. Also the plant tours closed until whatever the announcement date is. Would totally suck to buy a new C7 and not have museum delivery with plant tour part not available.
Yes, they do have a nearly finished version, which they have been showing to folks well connected to GM with important business relationships. I know one of those people, and he was also told it would be NYC.

NYC has become more important both domestically and internationally than DTW and more broadly covered by the press. Moreover, there may have been some slippage in final approval for production decision, and they don't want to get too far in front of that.

I wonder what's the chance GM might instead show the ME at the Geneva Auto Show which is March 7-17 of 2019. The Geneva Show is typically where all the high end manufacturers (i.e. Ferrari, Lambo, Porsche, MB, BMW, AM, etc) show off their latest and greatest super cars. It has a very international flare that might be appealing for capturing interested from the European market and other world segments. DTW and NYC would be the obvious choice to launch it domestically but it just gets me thinking maybe Geneva would also be a great place to show it against its intended competition.

I think NYC covers both domestic and international bases, as it has also developed an international following. As much as GM wants to increase it's international presence it also can't betray it's strong US following.

There are no mysteries. Thanks to CF, I now know exactly when the C8 is being introduced, how much it'll cost, what drivetrain it's going to have, and what it looks like.

The only thing left to find out is if that emoji puppet is stick shifting with a cable or electronically .

Maybe a month ago it was announced that the C8 Corvette would be on display at the 2019 Concourse at Amelia Island, Florida. This is a very prestige's event that takes place the first weekend in March. Today, I learned that will not happen, because the reveal had been delayed. It was asked if GM might possibly have a display of the Engine and Chassis, with no body work for their event, that also was a definite "no". We will have to reset our clocks on this one.
