I'm surprised also at the lack activity .It doesn't look all that bad but I'm old (school) ,I've never had a vett that wasn't a convertible and manual transmission so I'm out .I certainly wouldn't want one from the first production run .It's been almost 48 HRS since the launch and no real opinion on the Good, Bad, or Ugly?
Lets' tear it apart, or build it up!
What are everyone's impressions?
It is curious that the C8 has generated so much less discussion than C7 did. I remember us picking it apart on every detail, especially the "Camaro" taillights. But once they hit the bricks, most of us came to admire it as much as any other Vette series. I carped a lot about losing the big glass window in back, but still like how the C7 styling puts it all together.
The C8, though, is the Corvette Rockstar. It's easy to throw shade on little design ques you think should be done different, or trapshoot various engineering decisions, but the total package is a world-beater. The C8R, once it makes its appearance, will be wiping up the IMSA contenders and many, many others.
There is plenty of room for growth, too, especially under the hood … I mean … back window. Who isn't drooling for a ZO6, Grand Sport or even a ZR1?
This mid-engine rocket was worth the wait.
