  • Car and Driver: Getting excited about the C8 ME since 2014

    Good slideshow of how C&D reported the existence of the C8 since 2014 via spy shots and other info, even when they got a few things wrong

    Five years of our waiting in one form or another. That is a testament to our C8 commitment.

      Thank you. This is my favorite picture. I think the final scoop could look a lot like the C8.R’s.

        Some of those very old pictures feature a very short nose and a very long deck behind the passenger compartment. Looks like a El Camino version of a Corvette, with a tonneau cover.

          The first mule was definitely "El Camino" themed lol

            Yes, zeroing in the emblem on the grille, it was an Australian Holden Ute (El Camino)

              Good observation, and why they chose it for the first C8 mule. At that point, consistent with what a mule is, what they were doing was a “proof of concept,” testing the DCT/engine/transaxle system. Clearly from where we sit now, it passed that test.
