      Does this dovetail with recent comments made by “unlimitedPower,” that there will be after the first, 2020 model year, a GT version of the ME? Interesting that this patent was filed in June of 2016, however just granted on October 2nd of this year?

      Might we see this exact emblem on the side of the ME? Or elsewhere on the C8?

        Unfortunately it's not that easy. The design patent for the C8 Corvette will likely be submitted soon if it hasn't already, but it won't be publicly available for most likely a year from the file date. For instance below is a screenshot of the C7 design patent, and you'll notice while it was filed on November 30th, 2012 (44 days before the reveal on 1/13/13) it wasn't patented and made public until April 22nd, 2014. We can hope though!

          The C8's will be midengined according to unlimitedpower and that would include the GT the only thing implied about FE was this .......................

          Interestingly, a mid engine Corvette makes space for the 7th gen Camaro to slip into the C7’s current segment in 2021, at current Camaro prices. The 2021 Camaro will be as revolutionary as the C8 but that’s for another forum at another time.

          there will be GMs offering in FE and stick, Maybe it's switching to two seats.

          As far as bowling greens plant size and multiple vehicles they can build manta ray, gt, gs, e ray, and e ray zora. Or a boatload of low priced manta rays.

              This does correspond with the recently released "insider" article. If true, they are really learning from the way the C7's are being used and catering to both segments, street and track.

                For all practical purposes, it only has two seats now. But I'd be surprised if GM tried to sell TWO two-seat sports cars. Cannibalizing your own sales is something they finally figured out is a bad idea. But maybe they'll give up on the retro styling and nearly zero rear visibility and build a modern muscle car.

                  Great idea, especially as Mustang sales are now kicking Camaro in the butt the last few years. Time for a massive sea change for the Camaro.

                    I've given up trying to convince anyone on this forum, or the other one, to see the merit of business sense in the automotive world. GM is faced with a massive problem: the changing face of demographics and the shameful business status of ignoring that. There are many others but Ms. Barra has shown that she is up to the task. However, she's being challenged from all sides. I suspect we'll see a very different plan for any of the new GM vehicles. Most importantly is the Corvette, along with pick up trucks, it's one of the only money making assets of GM. Everyone that thinks that history is going to set the pace for the next Corvette is not facing any of the facts that have been slapping the executives of GM in the face. No more sedans! SUV's and the lonely Corvette are the landscape of the future. If this means making it an independent label, I wouldn't be surprised. If it means capitalizing on the brand and making an SUV or any of the reported other platforms, I think a company standard will include them. Obviously, what I'm suggesting will not happen overnight! Time is the tell all and may change over the introductions and their receptions in the real world. I only say all this to suggest there may be a lot more surprises then we can imagine.

                      I don't doubt what you say, may not like it, but don't doubt it.
