Any other design features. There have been quite a few doozies the last few days. Who would think the Corvette community would have so many comedians!

I will start it off. I dont think I saw this on C/F but it really made me laugh.

"That new rear end looks like a Camaro backed into a Pep Boys store by accident"!

My favorite C8 comment is that CF is populated by an extraordinarily high percentage of hysterical whack jobs who leap to premature and bizarre conclusions.

depends on definition of extraordinarily high %. my poll shows 51% of people undecided/reserving judgement. that's a majority. add the 23% who like it and I'd say CF is not too whacky.

perhaps an extraordinarily high % of whacky people are sounding off in comments

I do think the tail lights look too much like the new Honda Civic but imagine this thing in person sitting really low and wide. Its going to be bad ***....

It's also populated by brand loyalists who somehow manage to take anything negative about GM products as a personal affront. Something I have not witnessed on any other car discussion forum. It is utterly bizarre.

Somebody on the Forum posted a picture of the rear of an '86 Fiero GT. And, said it looked better than the C8 rear. I hope for his sake he was kidding.

The comment you quoted was posted by a brand agnostic, but I don't entirely agree with you in this particular case. Some of the most bizarre criticisms and leaps to conclusions have come from Corvette loyalists, who don't like change. But, the icing on the cake is that they haven't even seen the effing car yet.

The part that gets me.. and leads me to what I think is the most ridiculous comment I've seen from many people "this is what it will look like". I've seen people state specifically the "scoop will look like" or "the front will look like" and so on. And use the most ridiculous "evidence" to prove their point, like obviously disguised test cars and (old and possibly invalid) CAD files from someone who has been labeled a fraud and is despised by these same people! Or the ones who say "it will cost less than X" or "more than Y" and in each case give ridiculous numbers (my favorite, it will be cheaper than a C7).

if you drink enough beers and squint, it starts looking like a 2020 Pontiac Fiero GT.

For those that don't want any Chev design cues on the C8,
