Default The leaked screenshots

After looking at them, I am pretty sure they are for the C7 final edition. First of all, the model code matches the model code that was talked about earlier this year for a C7. The two new colors match the code of what was recently talked about in the C7 section, two new colors for the C7 that should he revealed at the bash. Several items match what are on the C7. There are plenty of typos too.

why would they change the transmission for only like a 2 year run?

idk.. sounds like it's the mid engine..

I'm disappointed because I want manual transmission, so looks like I'll pass

I doubt it. Don't think they are putting a DCT in the C7.

Same. Once again, likely a typo.

With the lock down in effect, it looks like as long as your thread/posts contains erroneous information, it'll be left standing.

So the deliberate listing of "dual clutch" is a typo? Tell me, what were they trying to spell?

its the c7 guys. Theres no way back here in reality that any manufacturer has build codes and order sheets on their server, for a car that has not been revealed yet, and is over 7 months away from production.

They dont pay employees to do those jobs that far in advance, it makes no sense.

Its the c7. Yes it will have a newer motor and trans, we have been predicting it would for the past year... there were c7's being tested at a major track, by the engineers, and people from this forum asked them to open the hood, and the GM engineers smiled and walked away.

Its a different motor and trans, and they have to test it before they throw it into the c8... c8's are a long ways off, as is the end of the c7 production.

Dont be surprised if a turbo c7z and turbo zr1 c7 are both released by 1 year from this month next. They can get all the front engine guys to buy new cars, and have revenue coming in while the c8 is being delayed and tested, and they can also get accurate testing on the transmissions and turbos... by putting them into the c7.

Dont be surprised if GM does not release a very rare car that puts a zr1 to shame, in the c7 platform a year from now.

the reason GM is so hell bent on keeping the photos off this forum is because it ruins people with 2019 orders and people who might buy an 18 or 19 in the next 45 days... GM needs those previous c7's to sell first... and then will release the c7 revamp.

If anyone is sure im wrong that the 2020 c7 has a dct, just PM me your wager, i dont feel like arguing over and over, and if you are that sure, then take my money.

haha, send your wager. The only part i wont bet money on is the turbos, that is still my hope.... but the dct... its coming big boss. I predicted this earlier this week on this forum after my friend who DOES know, and works for GM, told me this was coming. Its all documented here on the forum.

PM Wagers if you think im wrong on the dct in a c7

I think you are right on 90% but I doubt turbos are coming when the LT4 and LT5 get the job done. Also, I think Corvette will announce a big discount on 2019s to clear them out once the 2020 is revealed even tho it will be at least $5K more. GM doesn't want anyone to know its plan until it is ready to roll it out

$10,000 says there won't be a 2020 C7 with a DCT, who shall serve as escrow to hold the money?

I reached out to 2 major shops on the phone. The problem is, you had to make a big scene instead of just PM me and take my money if you happen to be right...

see, now you've managed to go and make things extremely public haven't you? And the shops are a little spooked about being involved in wagers on a forum...

meanwhile, c7pimp could be your best friend for all I know, i dont know him and anyone you dont know could be my best friend for all you know....

the major shop was the way to go... but you've tried to make a spectacle instead of just PM me and we work it out to where you would get your money.

For all we know, you are a cop or something...

but, for conversation sake, what US State are you in right now, my clever friend?
