There may be few, but those few are great for hard-line purists.
GT3/GTS/S/T, C7 ZR1/Z06, Lotus, Camaro ZL1 1LE, GT350R, M3, 718, Hellcat, etc.

the right thing for GM to do is offer a proper manual and a DCT or automatic, so everyone has a choice on if they want a clutch pedal. Iím not willing to sell my soul by downgrading to an automatic just to have the next new Corvette.

admittedly the purist group is a minority, but itís a vocal minority as proven by price premiums on those purist cars.

Having no manual option will almost certainly cause me to hang on to my C7 very long-term. However, my wife is very interested in the ME based upon the renders she's seen, so there's a good chance one will end up in our garage.

quality of materials

I personally canít say what I would pay since I have not seen the product yet. If it is C7 quality I wouldnít pay much more for a ME C8. If the build and quality warrants I would pay much more.

Keeping our C7s and adding a C8, is what several of us will probably do. I'll certainly make garage space if I add one. 👍

No manual no sale for me either. GM could never get the A8 right so why would I trust GM to get the auto in the C8 right.

Oh and itís gotta have a V8.
