Assuming the next gen Corvette is ME, and assuming it is within the realm of reasonable pricing - lets just assume for this poll that, if you are able to buy a new C7 now, you'll be able to afford the C8 as well, what will you primary use case be for a ME C8?

What about tracking it?

What about non-daily use, but more than weekend use?

FWIW, these are how I intend to use mine. You may want to consider expanding your poll choices.

Mine will not be a daily driver, nor will it be used only on weekends. I will bring it to cruise ins and shows. My primary use will be for my pleasure, whenever I feel like driving it...which is often. I just like to drive. Trips or just for the sake of enjoying a fine automobile. That's the way I have always used my Corvettes.

LOL @ "golf cart", I was thinking the same thing.

Poll is very limited, apparently the OP thinks cars are only used in 3 manners.

It's going to be a standard production car...not a low or limited production exotic...It WILL BE a daily driver...drive the snot out of it...then drive it some more.

Picking up easy and clueless chicks, the "pump-and-and dumps", just like I would do in a Ferrari or Lambo.


One more rather amusing video:

Can't seem to figure out how to edit the poll, but for the most part, just trying to gauge the split between those who will daily, and those who will use for limited miles or very limited miles. IMO, consumer use case is going to ultimately drive the future of pricing/availability.

Depends on what else I have in my garage. If I keep the C7 as my trackday car, then the C8 will be a convertible and I will drive it as much as I can. I would classify it as a "nice weather daily driver".

Not on your list but I use my car whenever I like. Since I’m retired I might decide to go to the beach on Tuesday or maybe the mountains on Thursday. I prefer great weather but if it rains while I am driving it doesn’t bother me

I will record the odometer at 12 miles and trailer it to Barrett-Jackson auctions with a $120K reserve until it sells.
