    Sadly, the ME appears to not offer that anti-theft device even as an option.

      That is a clever picture on the spare tire cover. As we all know, very, very true.

        I just bought my 19yo daughter a camaro - she didn't care what kind of car actually, just that it was a manual. She is the ONLY one of her friends to know how to drive a manual, maybe the only one in her class for that matter. Taught her little sister too. It is a dying skill, but I am doing my share.

          I do not think that a paddle operated DCT will be understood by the millennial crowd. Plus most of them are not interested in cars.

            For all of we dismayed "row your own" potential C8 buyers, that's the reason that I added "Potential" to the line! Hopefully Tadge sees this and accelerates into production his "servo" actuated clutch engagement patent!

              An interesting dynamic is occurring that is starting too slowly undercut the stereotype of millennials not being interested in cars, in that a fair amount are finding out in the 30’s that a car is a very useful thing (duh), starting to get their driver’s licenses (not as many of we did, e.g., the very first day we could), and thus more millennials are buying cars at they “age.” As many as earlier gens? Not even close, but more than there were percentagewise-buying-them five years ago.

                Lol. Nice. The large majority of Millennials don’t care about cars. In fact, it won’t be long before people start paying a subscription for monthly driverless car service. $100 per month for unlimited local rides. It will be here sooner than you think. It will be just as common as a cell phone bill.

                    I understand they actually save money. If true that would set them apart from some other generations and means a Corvette is an option for them as they achieve their desired financial security.

                        It is a great and super important skill to have during those 7% cases when the vehicle driven somewhere has a stick. I know of one couple who when they went out, and he got too sick to drive (minor vertigo caused by the flu it was learned later), and they had to call a cab to get home that night.

                        Or what if a couple with young kids went camping and the only adult who knew how to drive, broke his/her ankle walking down the trail back to the car?

                          I'm not sure "aspiring" to own a car is the same things as "caring" about cars. My wife owns a car. She recognizes the need for one. But to her it's just an appliance. As long as it's comfortable, has good A/C, and gets her where she wants to go, that's enough. She doesn't "care" about cars.

                            Too bad she doesn’t care about cars. I’m lucky in that mine has her 79 she bought new and has encouraged me to buy our last two.
                            There is a madness to my method!

                              I am 25 years old and when my father bought me a car 5 years ago, it became me not just a vehicle but rather a friend to take care of. I always try to keep my car clean, immediately repair it if something happens. But many people would just drive the car until it completely breaks down. Manufacturers are trying to make cars better under the buyers impact so that everyone is happy. I hope people will start to appreciate cars more.
