But, Ford was ahead of the game and made even more money on the 4 seater that replaced the 2 seater in 1958.

How about citing an example that's relevant to this century?

All I can say is if the C8 is above $120k (no matter how its configured), I am really happy to have my C7 Z06.

If this proves true, my 6th corvette (the C7 Z06) will be my last.

My grandmother's friend has a cousin who works in the diner across from the site where GM garbage is dumped confirmed this after the diner's cook found a scrap of paper that blew across the road and on to his windshield with all this info on it.
And that's a fact Jack.
My name is Jack, so I figured you posted this for me.

Kidding aside, I imagine Chevy will evolve the ME car as the model years go by just as they have with previous generations. "Base model" out first might be a simple RWD set-up. They can then make it a hybrid by adding an electric motor to the gas drive train, still only RWD. This would allow them to develop their battery technology and application. The full monty (kind of like the C7 ZR1) would add the electric motors up front pushing power up to or maybe even over 1,000 HP... Pricing foe the versions/generations would accordingly suit the car's evolution.
