All this frame bending crap is crap. They put the LT5 in the C4 corvette........ I simply took the top out of my 93 Vette and could feel the flex come on big time. Current frame tech is incredible...

I doubt GM will give us any times on the base models and Z51 cars. We might get times once they show the higher performance models.

The more one looks at this camo cars, you start to realize that black/white mish-mash of camo material does a good job of hiding slow contours. The very first set of photos coming out of Germany...

Funny statement, at best, as I never said I know what it looks like. What I said, and many in here agree with, is that there is some OBVIOUS line changes and hides going on with the current wrap. ...

I think GM did a lot of work under that wrap to hide the real facia. I would believe the major lines are more or less real, but the openings are definitely defined as somebody in GM wanted by the...

The OE replacement cable is not very long. I suspected that ground as an issue a few years back and still have the OE replacement cable I ordered. IIRC it heads over to a point on the frame near...

No "HOT V" going in the C8. Doesn't make any sense and the thermal efficiency issue is easily resolved even with turbos mounted off to the side from a normal intake/exhaust design. The Mid-Engine bay...

While I don't think it will be shown, this would be a great way to increase C8 news traffic. If GM allowed people to see one, privately, with no phones or cameras allowed(search policy), there would...

Interesting that you only have the one data point for a FE and the rest of your post supports the ME. There will only be a ME C8, IMO, and the data you provided points very heavily to that being...

If they have to do some sort of wing, I guess I would rather it be a movable surface that is flush when parked. At least the car will look good at the car shows. Maybe they can put a defeat switch...

Entirely to much mis-information in here by those who obviously think mid engine must be expensive.

The so called knowledge in the "other" forum mentioned is just as bad, if not worse.

100% disagree. The current C7 ZR1 is absolutely disgusting to look at. I really hope the "boy racer" mentality is gone from the design group now that they had their stupid fun on the ZR1.

Typical C8 general discussion. I have yet to find the engineering perspective, just the "oh you think" comments. Mid engine doesn't = exotic price and never has. Over-head cam doesn't = exotic...
