  • Porsche forum c8 thread 2700 replies..check it out

    the question on many peoples minds are what conquest rates will be for the c8 from many well respected brands..

    just a fun time to see what many diehard porsche enthusiasts think of the c8.

    enjoy and feel free to come back and share insights.

    one request would be respectful to members of that forum and if you want to share this forum name with some of their members might appreciate this very informative mid engine corvette forum if not dont worry about it. I think they already know.

      Ditto. Thanks JB. Similar conversations on Ferrarichat, though some talking about using their C8 as a daily driver.

        Thanks for the link JB.

        As you pointed out previously, a real sign of how many conquest buyers the C8 is attracting is that poll asking if this is your first Corvette. A surprisingly large number of first-time buyers there in my opinion.

          First things first Are the C8 really even a Corvette? For all purposes it could have been called the Excella, because basically its a new car with a heritage nothing more. This is why so many non-corvrtte owners are in line to get one. It presents itself as an Italian exotic at a third of the price. Who could pass this up for little more than the price of a Supra

            The C7 was also a completely new car. So was the c5,and the C4. What makes this less a Corvette than the C7? Because the engine moved? How far does it have to move to not be a Corvette? At some point, it went from being completely front engined to a front mid-engine.

            The first Corvettes were all convertibles. Did a fixed roof make it less a Corvette, or did it introduce a new, improved one?

                    Most OPs over there are favorable and welcoming of the competition. Porsche will always have its following, but they are also taking notice

                      Regarding the $85K they are throwing around as the cost for the C8. Someone needs to post that a nicely optioned 2LT with Z51, MRR etc is a mere $74K. Or that a bare 1LT track car would be under $70K.

                      I read about 30 pages over on rennlist between last night and this morning. There's certainly some anguish amongst the Porsche faithful. IF this is important to you, it would be tough to get beat at the stoplight by a $60K C8 while in your two to three times more expensive P car.

                      I had a 928 back in the late 80's. It was a bargain priced car from an Estate sale. I had a car Dealer buddy inform me of the sale and I bought it. Even BARGAIN priced the thing about broke me in maintenance costs. Though It was comfortable, very well appointed, fast , basically a great GT car. Had some ELECTRONIC issues on a trip that cost me just about the price of a decent NEW economy car.....sold it ASAP.

                      Hope the P guys don't lose too much sleep over the C8.

                        Great points FN in MT! Porsches are great cars. They are highly engineered. As to their shape, meh. As to their price, it is, to quote three new 911 owners I met at a Cars-and-Coffee a year ago, “Porsche pricing is out of control.” When the three of them said that (one standing next to his 7th 911, one next to his 4th, the third next to his 5th) , they thought the entry MSRP price of the C8 was going to be $85K, and they were all unaware that the 2020 Porsche 911’s pricing increased $7,000 over what they then knew. Yet all three said, “for the first time in my life, I am probably going to get a Corvette but only the ME.” Two of them volunteered that they had never even been inside a Corvette, let alone gone for a ride, but they all knew that Corvettes are fast.”

                          yes, because the engine moved. And it's not less or more of a Corvette, but it is a completely different car than all previous cars that were all FE/RWD, which is the foundational spec for all cars (where the engine is, and where the power wheels are )

                            The Porsche is a well engineered beautiful over priced sports car. I have owned 11 of them over the years. I still have an 89 911 coupe, but the new Corvette is such a great value. Looking forward to my 27th Corvette a C8
                            2 LT well equipped for 72,400. I priced the new 911 base with just a few options it was well over 120k even with the depreciation hit I’ll take when I sell my C8 for a used C8 Z06 the Corvette is a bargain!

                              Interesting that they consider multi-millionaire business Owners rednecks in mid-life crisis. I bought my first 2 Corvettes while I was in college. They were both paid for before I graduated. I have owned, Porsche, Mercedes, Ferrari cars. Corvettes go through a life cycle of value. Anyone that studies the market would know that. Look at what 74-77 Corvettes are going for compared to 84-86 Corvettes. Not bashing any other brands but to me the Porsche has a very vanilla interior compared to Maserati, Aston Martin or yes, even the lowly Corvette. My last Porsche was a CaymanS. First Porsche was a 928. Pretty sporty car, fun to drive but not any kind of world beater. Several others in between. I will likely own another at some point. I off road in either one of my H1 Hummers or my Scorpion. Last trip to Moab we had FJ Cruisers, Raptors, Jeeps and Hummers. I don't know anyone that is into the brand superiority BS anymore.
                              It was good to see that so many on that forum were open minded to other cars. Seems like I would fit in that group just fine. ( well except for that redneck midlife crisis thing

                              Ps: I do own a farm, tractors, trailers, trucks, etc but I am not really a redneck...well mostly not.
