Finally I am vindicated about no more FE, after years of discussions on the forum & Just wait when the price comes in under 70k. Mic drop silence

Anyone who believed Chevy was going to have 2 different models needs a Brain check.

It's hard enough to sell one model, yet train salesmen and mechanics for 2 lines.

I need the Z06 with Manual please.

Looks like the auction for the last one is in June ...

meaning end to C7 production early summer, C8 reveal in July, and hopefully shipping in Sept/Oct.

The only generation uglier than the C-7 was the C-4, and only barely. Wouldn't own either regardless of price.

You actually can...just change the Corvette emblem
and put about 100 000$ cash in the frunk.
Forget about the FE...but they were pretty close.

The ultimate expression of the front engine Corvette was supposed to be the ZR1. King of the Hill and all that noise.

So it makes perfect sense by GM logic to have the last one ever be something other than a ZR1.

Nah, he and Skank will be back soon rattling on about how GM made a huge mistake, or that the FE Corvette will return soon. I just saw that new spin rolled out by someone else just a few minutes ago in light of tonight's news.

I always liked the exterior of the C4. Especially when it got the rounded ZR1 rear bumper. Just a classy and sleek look to me. I think by far the ugliest Corvette was the very first model with the stupid looking grille. Followed next by the C5, and then the C3, then C6.

So the only real question is: Does Rick Hendrick buy both the last C7 produced and the first production C8 for his personal museum? He will also get a very early production car for driving around the neighborhood.
