    Configure Your 1st year C8 Based On What You Think Would Be Available

    This is the thread to spec out your C8 based on what you believe will and will not be available. Have fun choosing your options and colors!

    Here are the boxes my wife and I would check today. But if some new exciting options/colors were to occur....?

    John’s C8
    Removable roof coupe (body colored)
    Long Beach Red Metallic
    3LT (unless 4LT were an option)
    Spice Red interior
    Front axle lift system
    Museum Delivery
    Non winged spoiler
    MSRC
    NPP
    Mickey D wheels in a “medium darkness” color.
    Black calipers
    Blacked out emblems/badges/fascia script
    Blacked out grille.
    Body colored scoop trim
    Fitted luggage set
    OEM engine cover “jewelry”



    This thread will be stickied, therefore easily found at the top of this section. Nice that as we learn more, we can change our choices as many times as we would want.

    Torch red exterior
    black interior
    z51 (heavyduty coolers and suspension oackage)
    dct
    mrc
    npp
    body color scoops and spoilers depending on final design shown
    blacked out or debadged car if offered


    maybe the front end lift system if offered as a stand alone option and resonably priced around a grand. I think mclaren offers this for around $1500...id spend a grand not to have to listen to the plastic spoilers on springs on the front end scrape on angled driveways....

        I like Chaz's latest blue render with the black blades on the scoop. Blacked out grille. Hopefully a rear spoiler that fits. I'm holding out on deciding on a Targa or ht vert. Depends on the look.
        Options:
        Z51 or equivalent
        mpp
        mrc
        dct
        front end lift
        upgraded interior (2 tone)

            What drives my C8 option selection at this time is generally based on what I got on my C7. Since I spent much time on those selections back in 2013 utilizing "multi-attribute decision analysis ", I chose no option on my C7 that I regret and there's no option that I later wished I had.

            I'm sure I will do a similarly rigorous analyses to select my C8 configuration since its something you want to get right the first time.


            Base Coupe with carbon fiber or transparent roof

            Automatic transmission

            Blade Silver Metallic with light grey interior

            Black wheels

            2LT

            NPP



            That may appear simple but each option/trim etc. available has to go thru the decision matrix. Thus all the options not selected received the same evaluation as the ones selected. My normal human cognitive limitations do not allow me to adequately consider all options and their related factors without the use of decision analyses techniques.

              Well here's my thoughts on my Base C8 depending on the total of each option. This could be a short ownership depending when the Z version hits.

              Removable roof coupe (body colored or carbon fiber)
              Colors: Charcoal Grey Matalic, Dark blue Metalic or none metallic Red.
              2LT option.
              Black interior with red stitching
              Front axle lift system
              Non winged spoiler or will need to see final release to make decisions
              Sports suspension and larger brakes Z51 package.
              MSRC
              NPP
              Sports Seats.
              Polished or silver painted or back wheels
              Red calipers if car is red or dark Grey if Blue I go with Yellow of Black or Silver calipers.
              Blacked out emblems/badges/fascia script NO CHROME!!!!!!!!!
              Body colored scoop trim or carbon fiber if avaliable.
              Carbon Fiber Engine area if avaliable like my R8 had this option. picture below.

                Great looking C8’s are being mind-designed right now. As I read each one, I go back and add something else to mine. Thanks all.

                    I try to keep up with of course the C8 and I read Motor Trend and Car and Driver and have noticed that the cars they report on are NOT for example about $5000 more than a C7. Those cars start about $100,000 and go up from there. They aren't the Corvette we are waiting on but they are new cars with all the goodies. It makes me wonder how is GM gonna sell a mid engine Corvette for let's say a sticker of $80,000?
                    I guess they can but just what will it have on it? My '15 was $75.050. Auto, PDR, Comp Seats, Extra stuff, 2LT. Just makes me wonder.

                        I don't know John. I think you are leaning more toward blue.
