  • Anyone waiting till the Z06 C8 comes out?

    The base C8 will not be hanging with the C7Z06 esp with the aftermarket support enjoyed by the current C7Z06. I think the base car with any options at all will even be priced as much as the current C7 Z06 with discounts you will not get on the C8. I also look for the C8 to gain weight.

    I planned to wait so I bought another C7Z06 turned out to be certified by the Corvette Museum to be a 1 of 1 car. Only 2018 Corvette produced exactly like mine. Likely the last 2018 Z06 made in the new factory. IMO The C7 Z06 is the performance bargain. Lt1 or 2 is not the equal of the lt4.


    The Heartbeat 2300 blower, Some Custom coated ARH 2 inch headers then add an intake and tune. Gets you 800 hp. Then the DCS controller for improved traction over stock.
    The car is a simply a 9 second beast. Love it so much I have two the A8 and the M7 built them the same way. Both have improved MPG . Both run cooler than any stock Z06. Both are lighter weight.
    Both will pull any stock Corvette including the ZR1.

    What fun you are having!

    Up until now I have always waited for the Z06 version. However my wonderful wife, sensing my not being happy about waiting an extra year (been four years, two months and 16 days since I placed my ME deposit), said “get a first year one, then get a Z06 when it comes out — as long as the first one disappears.”

    Lucky me!

      Well... I for one am not converting mine into what is basically a drag car. For the money I could build a specific roller and drop any engine/trans combo I choose.

      But to each their own, as long as you're having fun.

          Well, I'll probably wait until the Z06 is available, but not because I want a Z06. But by the time I'm ready to get rid of my C7, the Z06 will probably be available.

              31,000 miles in just under 4 years, so call it about 7,500 a year. Probably half of that longish trips, the rest around the 'burbs. And a small amount on the track. (Very small) I was just talking to a friend who has an old Avalon he bought with 100,000 miles on it. It's now up to 205,000!! I figure I'll get a few more years out of the C7.

                Most likely I will wait for the Z06 or the Grand Sport. I’ve had two base Vettes, both the C6 and C7. My old man currently has a GS and it looks way better. I am curious how long we will have to wait.

                  I will definitely be waiting for a minimum of a ZO6, or the rumored 1000hp AWD variant. I have had the cash saved for sometime and in a C8 only fund, making me quite good interest. Hopefully my health holds out and the car is beautiful. Then I'll be a cash buyer and a very happy person.

                    I'm actually considering waiting. After all these years of waiting for this car I'm now considering waiting longer because I just wont be happy with the base car. And we don't have a crystal ball to tell us what the near future market value will be on a 1 year old super low mileage car. Really don't wanna throw 10-20K out the window just to say I had the first one out. But still a part of me is saying...**** I'VE WAITED LONG ENOUGH!!!

                        I will be waiting for at least the Z06, version. I have others to drive in the mean time.

                          Waiting for some version above the base car has been my plan. Though it will be hard to keep waiting after we finally see it.

                            Waiting for the Spyder version, a Z51 or equivalent package, a reduction from MSRP, and me wanting one more than wanting to keep my C7 roadster.

                              Me too, and given that we've seen Spyders out testing with the coupes, I expect that the HT convertible will be available as a 2020 model.

                              I also expect the base car to have 500+HP, which I feel is a very nice power level for my type of street use. I do like the idea of an 8,000 RPM FPC motor in the Z06, and I look forward to learning all about it when it's revealed (2021?).
