Here’s what he got right:
1. Lamborghini style start/stop
2. Buttons running up the right side.

Heres what he got wrong:
1. Digital Touchpad
2. Wraparound Display
3. Steering wheel design (twice)
4. Steering wheel with “noticably thicker sides”
5. “XXXX” printed in the center of the steering wheel (obviously hinting at ZORA)
6. “The steering column, console, the dashboard, is a carbon copy to that of the current Ford GT. Almost identical steering wheel”

And that’s only just what’s been disproven from his interior thread.

Then theres the time when he flip-flopped between it being called a Corvette vs. Zora vs. some “unrelated GM car”...

And the backpedaling on the $169k price thread...

And the time he claimed the high perf version will launch first...

And the time he implied that he drove it...

The list goes on.

Stop treating this guy like he has all the answers. It should be clear at this time that he either saw a quick glimpse of a photo, or got a quick glimpse of the real thing, in passing, just enough to see a few key details and mess up/make up the rest.



Like I said back in August:

“There are plenty of ways somebody could come across an exposed C8 this close to the assumed reveal, but anyone with any real information or feedback to give on any key data (performance, pricing, availability, branding, market positioning, etc.) would be either too busy, too important or too held down by NDA to risk anything in the name of anonymous fame. It's very clear (crystal, in fact) that the only thing to gain by doing this is attention and a way to fill what must be very boring free time (which the OP seems to have an abundance of).”

and

“Even if you give him the benefit of the doubt and believe he's seen it, it's clear he doesn't know anything beyond what he's seen. And is just using this thread as a device to get attention. Stop giving it to him.

He's flip flopping back and forth on pricing, branding (If it's a Corvette/C8, if it's a supplemental Corvette branded sub-model, if it's not a Vette at all), its name (C8 vs. "XXXX") and the performance specs/packaging.”

It’s baffling how little it takes to convince some of you.

Bravo.

Source? I’m looking for mid-engine projects like the Aria but can’t find any similar pictures.

OP needs to back away from the keyboard.
If this guy bothers you so much that you had to take time and make a thread about it you have bigger problems.

Give us a crazy price of $170K so that when the actual price is unveiled and is higher than what some are expecting (probably around $75K), people aren't stunned by the higher price, and the rest are stunned that it isn't super expensive. Just my opinion.
your also wrong.

your not getting a rear engine halo car for 75k. Im sorry. Thats Camaro money. The only reason the electric problems were reported was because people like you think zervs prices are wrong.

what if i told you its the opposite? Electric problems rumor then a reveal on 14th because all of the feedback on the price was negative? Now morale for lowballers is already down so noone like you will wait till the reveal only to be let down by the fact the base price will be over 100k.

also, NO.

thats not a ME lt4. The ME will sport ONLY a 4.4 period.

I will really never understand this. On a forum where 90% of the posts are based on pure speculation, why are people so personally offended by Zerv? I really don’t get it.

They should study this whole Zerv02 thing in Political Science. It gives a great insight into the current political climate with regards to public opinion.

Get one thing right and they’ll follow you blindly. You’re then free to make up as much **** as you want.
May not apply in this case - I can think of a prominent political figure for whom I believe the following is accurate - but the behaviour is reminiscent of the Dunning-Kruger Effect...

6. “The steering column, console, the dashboard, is a carbon copy to that of the current Ford GT. Almost identical steering wheel”

^^^ So the posted pictures of the C8 interior is a carbon copy of this picture? Hummmm.

All this speculation about the C8. Really, who cares. Just sit back and wait for it. GM will release it when they release it and not before. It's not worth getting all frazzled up about. It's going to be a cool car, but just wait on it. A lot of folks showing their *** here. Over what? Nothing. Just sit back and wait. I'm just like the most of the people here, I don't have a dog in this hunt, it means mighty little to me. I'm curious, that's all. Ya'll need to back away and enjoy life and just wait. It'll happen.
