Like trying to capture a road runner crossing the road in Arizona.

Looks like a screenshot from an old VHS tape.

Yes, and I'll also watch out for the hairdressers car to run against our 65k Supercar that the Walmart shoppers are blathering about.

I Worked for GM. Had one of the first Pontiac Fiero's. Yr? Corvette should not be a mid-engine car.

Yeah, its only been 30 years. I'm sure GM hasn't had enough time to figure it out. Maybe in 80 years they should give it a shot. I mean Porsche, Toyota, and others have figured out how to make sub 6 figure mid engined cars, but I'm sure GM isn't capable.

WOW. This guy hasn't posted since November 2017 and decides to dip his toe in the mid-engine pool, leading with the FIERO.

Let's hope they get the C8 on some LA freeways to be sure the suspension tuning doesn't result in the car hopping around like a Pogo Stick. I recommend 405 North just before the 10 interchange.

I can get behind that. Look at the extra padding by the side scoop and where it is relative to where it was. Looks a little different to me.

Maybe once they get that "Mid Engine" on the streets of Willow or the Car Of The Year (COTY) performance loop, they will remove all that camo and deceptive paneling? Of course, this is purely speculation on my part because I have no clue what goes on during new vehicle research and development. I'm just a lowly Corvette_Nut itching for the Latest and Greatest....
