Default Zerv02, THANK YOU

I was always a believer.

The interior spy photos proved you right. I do think you got incomplete info on pricing though- $170k sounds right for the top model, but not the base car.

Anway, thank you for all you've shared.

I was a believer for sure....and he was 100% vindicated with the interior photos...spot on. Guy endured a bunch of bs on here from a lot of people who will enter into the realm of "cognitive dissonance" now, and still defend their knee-jerk false opinions despite clear evidence they're judgement was false. How about some real men step forward and acknowledge they were wrong...there won't be many. They'll slice and dice it....spin it like Nancy Pelosi but...facts are facts, his interior is dead on.

Here's to Zerv

Me too..

Most were delusional, i'm not sure what they were thinking.. A mid engine halo car for under the price of a Camaro ZL1 1LE? Well.. if you thought that was going to happen you can now apologize to Zerv and everyone else who was called "crazy".

the fact that you are a "believer" in just the information that suits your hopes is sort of pitiful. 169k base, buddy.

10k less then the NSX. Probably significantly faster.

I can see it for a Cadillac AWD hybrid with 1,000hp.

The base C8 will not be a hypercar, maybe the ZR1...theres nothing inherently THAT expensive about a mid engine car.

More like partially right, buttons on the right side of the console, and the wrap-around infotainment screen. All the rest of the sketch was in error.

There is no base ZORA.

It will follow McLaren with models..

Get real fellas.. 60k days are winding down. They will continue the front engine just keep pretending I don't make sense and say sorry in a few days.

See ya!

you can stick your fingers in your ears and scream until your lungs give out but he appears to be more right than wrong.

If Porsche can manage to make a mid engined car (cayman) for $55k, i'm sure GM can pull off the Stingray version of the C8 at a reasonable price.

That being said, it is entirely possible there will be on "stingray" version. I've heard one of the reasons they are going mid engine is because they are reaching the performance limits for a RWD with z06 levels of power. Maybe only the z06/zr1 versions will be offered for the mid-engine and will be more expensive. Zerv was spot on with the interior drawing, but i have doubts about the mid-engine starting price of $160k.

Ohhhh my God let it go! You have this vision of Cadillac that is not so accurate! Why can't you get it that the Corvette IS GM's Flagship & Halo car and Cadillac has nothing on a Corvette! The Corvette should be and is at the top of GM's mountain in terms of performance, looks, technology, high-end options, customer loyalty, heritage, customer affluence and so much more.

LOL . . . did I miss something? Was Zerv's $169K starting price confirmed? That's the only thing I've ever said was utter BS.

I couldn't care less about the interior, as long as the seat provides a comfortable driving position. This fascination w/ interior "poshness" is ludicrous from people who proclaim to be sports car enthusiasts.

Lotus knew how to make a proper interior. It was spartan, with no unnecessary BS, all in the name of weight savings.
