GM knows this and will take full advantage.
I really don't think so. This is the end of the combustion engine and the last hurrah for this car before it goes all electric. You can't justify a price tag that high to move tens of thousands of units. Just my opinion but base will be in the $60s easy. I'm not doubting it will be a great car. All Corvettes are and will continue to be I'm sure.

With the pre-emptive release of the C7 limited Final Edition Grand Sport and Z06 in Europe, rest assured GM is aiming to broaden their appeal in the lucrative Euro/Asian markets.

Why do people think a car of this caliber will go for less is beyond me.
Meh, why not $130k then? Surely if you can afford a $110k car, you can afford a $130k car, and think of how much sweeter it would be.

After all, Porsche BASE models start at $110k, if you want to compete why wouldn't your second trim level be even higher?

I agree $100k is peanuts, hope they have interior options that match my Ostrich jacket

The pricing of Porsche sports cars is flatly laughable at this point. Their own sales people freely admit that these abusive retail prices are the reason why many dealers have only 1 or 2 911s in stock. I can't wait to hear the avalanche of excuses that the Porsche fanboys come up with when the C8 takes center stage and absolutely *** rapes these overpriced snob mobiles at half the price. The C8 is a Porsche humpers worst nightmare for sure. An entry level mid engine C8 with 500+ HP will run the table on the 911 Carrera/S. The Porsche boys have a pretty good idea of what is coming. Their denial and blind criticism of the yet to be revealed C8 will work for now but they will eventually have to hang down their heads and face reality. It will be a difficult time for the Porsche chest pounders as they attempt to rationalize the fact that they have played the fool by paying an outrageous premium for a car that is flatly out classed by a far better looking, superior performing Corvette.

You do realize that this is ALL conjecture at this point. Right?

Tell us, what did Porsche due to you? Did they touch you? That is quite the crying little rant, lol.

Meh, say what you want about Porsche looks, if I'm paying for fit and finish I'd still rather take their interior and panel gaps over whatever I believe GM would come up with even at a $110k base price.

If you can afford a loaded 3LT GrandSport, you will be able to afford a base/stripped C8.

If you're looking at Porsche drive the Cayman, much funner car to drive than the 911. The 911 has turned into something that feels like an oversized rear engine touring car while the Cayman is a fun mid engine sports car. Now if Porsche would get their heads out of their asses and put the larger engine in the Cayman... that would be perfection.

All you humpers, it's humpday for you working class! I'm retired now.

Did Ferrari got hurt bad when Porsche came out with a car that whoops their ***? Maybe they noticed and focused a little more on their future models. Same thing here with the C8. They'll all remain in their perspective market segment and life goes on. I think the ME C8 will be a success story and here we will complain about its shortcomings as usual.

"I wouldnt blink an eye at 100k"

You are so rich and cool... it must be awesome to be you. The problem is many working folks who stretch and save to buy a new corvette would blink. These are the people that make up the largest segment of the corvette demographic.

cant wait for you to show us a pic of the new car you end up with

I would agree. If you can afford a $76k car, you can probably afford a sub-$70k car

Why do people think a car of this caliber will go for less is beyond me.

I don't care if it has a V6 with Twin Turbos or a V8, as long as it performs.

Ever price out Porsche 911S?

I just left a Porsche dealer today, you can't touch a 911S for less than $140k: https://www.westmontporsche.com/pors...-inventory.htm

The salesman acted like they didn't give a **** if I bought one or not.

Negotiating with these guys would appear to be a waste of time.

I will say the paint on a Porsche looks incredible.

I visited a Mercedes dealer, BMW, Lexus, and even LAMBORGHINI: https://www.perillodownersgrove.com/...uc2zf7kla12430

Given the base price is going to stay within the range of the C7 +10-13% you will be so lucky to only need to spend $65-$70K for what you're looking for.

Good thing you're willing to pay $40K over market value though. Let me refer you to the Ford dealerships that will have $40K mark-ups on 2020 GT500's. They love impulsive and ungrounded people like you.
