Totally agree. I got my 2014 in March of that year. Never had an issue. Car still runs like new. Did the factory tour and those folks are proud of the product they assemble.

Are we getting close to the reveal? I recall the upsurge in ITW spottings of the C7 just before the reveal. Exciting times.

I'm an avid golfer (single-digit handicap) and have carried my clubs in both my previous C6s and my current C7. Corvettes are golf friendly. But people buy them for various reasons. The Corvette just...

Agree. I golf. Bought my C6 and C7 with that in mind. If my clubs fit, I'm in. Looked at other sports cars and they didn't meet the requirement. Space has been a hallmark of the Corvette since the...

Luggage space has been the hallmark of the Corvette since the C5. I think it will reach the point of compromise with the ME C8. In order to compete with the 911, the golf clubs will have to go,...

Fake. Look at the driver side door interior. Doesn't match the passenger door. Also, the blurred sections match those from the interior photo posts from a few weeks ago. Clever, but not the real...

Tony, I couldn't agree more. There are too many "keyboard cowards" who don't care about civility and blast away. At least with a video, you can't hide behind a persona. Keep posting.

I like your thinking. If the price/performance is close to your prediction, I don't see how GM will keep both C7/C8 production lines open, as some have speculated. The C8 will be on perpetual...

It's pretty snug in my C7. I'm 6'3", 245, and have the seat at the limit. My left leg sometimes hits the motion sensor/trunk release buttons if I'm not careful entering/exiting the car. As far as the...

It was an option on base models in 2014. I think it is part of the Z51 package.

Tool, I stand corrected about the Acura. Didn't realize it was so long ago. I think we all agree that GM is playing the C8 close to the vest. I want the C8 to be revealed and I truly want GM to...

I'd love to be a fly on the wall at a GM marketing strategy meeting. One one side the PR guys are saying, "Hey, let's do this. Our social media analytics show C8 interest is at record levels. Strike...

If Chevy does an early preview, it will only solidify the buying plans of those waiting for the C8. It might spur others who "just can't reach" that price point to opt for a new or nearly new C7....

Let's play "What If?"
What if Chevy splits off the Corvette as a separate model line and keeps the C7 front-engine layout and puts it on an extended chassis and makes a Panamera competitor (ie,...

Knowing Chevrolet's history, I would wait. I purchased a 2014 Stingray. Should have waited for the 15, when the 8-speed auto, PDR and better infotainment features were available. Chevy carried over...

The XLR was a Mercedes killer when it was built and the guys from the Fatherland quickly upped the ante and improved the S-class coupe. A C8 version Caddy will compete well today, IMHO. I hope GM...

Unlike the C7 debut, GM is noticeably mum on the C8. We were seeing teaser commercials on the C7 in late 2013. Wonder what their marketing strategy will be going forward.

Curious. Why dump the 911 when you already have a 'Vette? Is there that much of a difference in the ride that you would rather have two Corvettes?
