I love it when someone who knows NOTHING, tells all the other guys who know NOTHING, that the NOTHING HE knows is correct, while the NOTHING THEY know is not.
Only on the internet.

An acquired taste for some American crow perhaps?
Look at the sales numbers of the C7 the last 5 quarters...
Say it again that theyíll keep trying to sell the C7 alongside the C8 for model year 2020 and 2021.

Always possible that GM has decided to spend $10,000,000 for all new exterior body panels to change the looks(refresh) of the C7, retain most of the car that is under the body panels as is, and call it a C8, then build it along side the mid engine "Zora" and carry on for another 4-5 years.

Here is the only debate.. 1. Will it actually be the ďC8Ē or will it be part of GMs launch of Corvette as its own brand? 2. Who is itís target competition?

1. If GM plans to target this car as the C8 then I personally think it will have way too many drawbacks and things that are compromises. The Corvette C7 should have gone more up market in its base trim. Unfortunately Corvette has to leave behind some of its old fan base and shoot a bit higher. Everyone complains about the interior or this or that and that is simply because GM continues to make a 60k base car that IMO ruins the bones of the product especially the higher models like ZR1 because itís based on a 60k car. If GM is smart, they will make this a second model in the Corvette family at a higher price point and give it the budget it deserves and not worry about the lower end market share.. sorry guys. It has to be a GTR competitor and should cost 115-120k to be done right. It should also have the performance to demand the cost.

2. At 60k+.... itís has no direct competition and if Boxter is it, well that is lame.

Look, it wonít have a 427... all you geezers hoping for a muscle- mid engine hold on to your existing Corvettes. This car is about moving forward not behind. I think a flat plane crank is more realistic and possibly a turbo variant down the road which would be the engine Iíd get for mod ability. I finally want a Corvette that doesnít be have to make excuses for things like poor interior or crappy panel gap etc. The every mans toy can be the Camaro, the Corvette finally needs to grow up.


very well put...
