    That's only a couple of thousand more than the C7, but they are heavily discounted now. I love the new C8 and will own one when the price gouging stops.

        Im not a Vette guy, but I do like the look of this one. The price point seems way more affordable than I thought it would be. If I had the disposable income and older kids, Id seriously consider this one.

          Im a few years away from getting permission(one more to get off to college) for a two seat sports car and will likely pick up a used C8 at that time. 495 hp for the base one is impressive, cant wait to see a 600 hp version which will be coming soon, Im sure. Im a speed freak whether its skis, snowmobiles, boats, or cars and have been waiting since my late 20s to own a two seater again. In the mean time, the 4.0 second 0-60 mph acceleration of my Tesla will have to do.

            That is about the same as my C6 in stock format, which it currently is not. I am really impressed with the acceleration of the Tesla models, and might own one some day, just need to find a way to make it handle like my Vette.

              I would also love to pick up one of these C8's. I love the exterior, and the interior is okay. I'm not sold on the design of the center console, but I could look past it. Unfortunately, my kids aren't even in grade school yet. It's going to be awhile. That new Tesla roadster is pretty slick too.

                I'm not a fan of the new model. I get the technological advances relative to engine placement but don't like the design implications. It doesn't look like a Corvette any longer. A handful of cars have iconic design; I prefer those cars stay true to what made them special.

                  This thing will likely be the best selling Corvette of all time. For Christs sake is a 500HP mid engine car starting at less then 60K.

                    I didnt mean the price is huge. It was worded poorly. I mean that having the price very close to the outgoing model is great. I was worried they would out price their core buyers.

                      Good thing my house is paid for in 5 years. Just in time to get the kinks worked out on the C8, or for the price of a 2019 Zr1 to be in my wheelhouse. [emoji23]

                        Those model 3s handle pretty damn well. They are currently the car to have in autocross it seems.

                        I think the c6 z06 is still my favorite vette. Classic looks, but NA 427 with 500 hp built for the track.

                            The Tesla is too heavy at 4,900 lbs to handle anything like a Vette, which is why I want a Vette or a Boxster S. Of course I can load a foursome with clubs and gear in my Tesla. Not so much in a Vette or a Boxster.

                              But they did make room for at least one set of clubs!

                                I'm not a Corvette fan, but I FULLY respect its lineage and history. That being said, I don't like this iteration at all. Seems like a massive departure from what makes it what its name celebrates. Of course, what do I know... I drive a Wrangler. Roads are optional for me.
