Sorry Mikado,

No Porsche involved, or at least the Porsche driver knew how to negotiate a curve😂

There is news today that the under $60k pricing will only be for the first year. After that
it is likely to raise. How much? That will be interesting to follow.

the percentage of new C8's that will deliver with an msrp under 60k will be few, if any ! As for 2021 pricing, who cares, lets enjoy the moment !!

After having grown up with corvette starting with an 81 4speed, and my last a 2006 convertible, I have to say Iím shocked by the design.

Particularly the stub nose, and the rear engine mount. Itís so far a departure from any corvette design, I think they should have introduced it under a different name.

Part of the sensation of driving the Vette, was sitting behind that long front end with a slightly reclined bucket seat. It really gave you that Iíve arrived feeling wherever you pulled in. In comparison these stub nose sport cars give the sensation of driving a lawn mower with a jet pack on the back.

Oh well Corvette History, Chevrolet just discarded you on the curb at 42nd St.

Hahahahaha! As a C3 owner I have to agree. But I'm sure the new vette will sell well. Seems like a great bargain!

sorry Jim, utter nonsense IMO. As an old fart that's been driving them for over 43 years they had taken the front engine as far as it was going to go. Tadge and his team have done a superb job of carrying the dream of Zora Duntov into the present. Remember this, in the past decade the avg age of a Corvette purchaser has increased by 10 years, mid fifties to now mid sixties. I firmly believe with the mid-engine and the affordable entry pricing they are headed in the right direction.
