    Finally, some hard facts on the C8 development.

    My favorite fun-fact from the article:
    "The Corvette XFE, which stands for Xtreme Fuel Economy, will be the Zora’s new mission, one aided and abetted by electric shutters in the radiator grilles. “We can close them for up to 4.2 seconds before the engine overheats and throws a rod through the partition between the engine and the driver,” our source said. “Or was it 3.2 seconds? Hold on—I gotta call you back.” In “Eco” mode, the C8 returns 41 miles per gallon in EPA highway testing."
    My C8:
    '20 Elkhart Lake Blue 2LT Coupe, Natural Interior, GT2 Two-Tone Seats, Performance Exhaust, Front Lift, Carbon Flash Wheels, Engine Appearance Package 2000 Status December 27, 2019; 3000 Status January 2, 2020; 3400 Status March 10, 2020;TPW March 16, 2020; Built June 4th, 2020 (COVID-19); Delivery July 1, 2020

    Current Vettes:
    '68 Lemans Blue 327/350 Convertible
    '91 Turquoise Convertible with Hardtop
    '14 Lime Rock Green 2LT Convertible, Black Top, Kalahari, 7-Speed, Performance Exhaust

        Holy S--T. I almost turned off the computer and called a dealership in Miami that has a really nice F430. Good One!!!

            OMG, I was thinking thank goodness, I always had it in my mind to wait for the ZR1 C8 equivalent, probably 2022 at least at the pace we've seen the C8 develop.

              Had visions of keeping my C7 Z for a while there. Then I finally got it. Had me going for a few paragraphs, I must admit.
