Save your breath...I used to trot out Boxster/Cayman/Alfa 4C as REAL proof that an ME car doesn't have to be $100K. Now, I look forward to day the price IS announced, and the C8 forum will become a...

Of course GM HAS a timeline. And maybe the car IS delayed. And maybe the car is running right on schedule. I don't know nor does ANYONE on this forum know.
The point is that WE don't KNOW the time...

You can't compare 2019 C7 SELLING prices with a 2020 ALL NEW platform. 2014 C7's didn't sell for anywhere close to the prices you're quoting. I would bet the vast MAJORITY of 2014 C7's sold at MSRP...

I thought the auto/manual debate was over. DCT's are AUTOMATICS with SOME manual capability. If it will shift itself, it's an automatic.

Watkins Glen Gray was 2017/2018 (again, if I remember right)
Shadow Gray is 2019
