  • LONG term future of Chevy Corvette.....

    We are all anxiously awaiting the "Reveal" on Thursday. I've been struck with a case of Corvette fever....really can't wait to see the C8 in the flesh. And am I the only one actually annoyed about the infamous booty shoot of our long awaited American Supercar?? Give a little.that's all we need to spark all the discussions and debates on all things Corvette. Like most modern movie advertising by the time the shown is actually released you already know everything. So what's the point of paying to see it. Same thing with the C8 reveal. If we see it all now it kills the buzz of it's release. To see it for the first time and experience your thoughts reactions etc THAT's what it's about.

    Thinking of the C8 and it's impact on the present and future of performance cars in the US and the world. With (unsubstantiated) talk of Corvette beyond C8 becoming ALL ELECTRIC ...NO MORE I.C.E. vehicles If this is even remotely accurate I think it's time to start collecting "old"cars and hope to get grand fathered in.

    At 60 years old i dont think ill live long enough to see a time when there are no more gasoline powered cars being produced new...

    could be wrong of course but its my opinion .,,a good 40 years before gasoline is no longer available at most street corners...

    i think we will see most electric motors placed after the engine and connected to the transmission to get quick boost of power...almost more than electric motors to add awd to rear wheel drive ice vehicles...

    to play devils advocate .,,

    supposedly battery tech will advance with regards to time required to recharge that ice motors wont even be needed for price no object powertrains..
    .
    instant torque of electric motors and no need for transmissions, no gas tanks, no mufflers, no emissions testing annually...

    full ev s like a tesla performance model is an eye opening experience

    teslas supercar for 200 grand compared to say a mclaren 570;on the road course track and drag strips should be telling the future of ICE sports cars

      I know a guy who collects “old” cars. He finally broke down and put “electric starters” on some of them. People don’t like change. The future is coming, like it or not. It’s not a bad idea to try new things before you discard them. I watched a Formula E race recently. It sounded weird, but, was more competitive than Formula 1. Just had octopus at the sushi bar, may not have it again, but now I know! 😎
      I’m goin’ driving 👍

        How difficult will it be to eliminate several of the largest corporations in existence? You're talking, BP, Shell, Exxon/Mobile, Chevron, and numerous others, all of who employ a cumulative hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. This it going to take a very long time. Oil doesn't just power ICE's, it lubes and contributes to scores of products. How to repurpose all of this is more then 4 decades of effort.

          The huge breakthrough in battery technology that will be required before electric vehicles begin to dominate the market has been "just around the corner" for nearly 100 years (so far).

          I'll wait.

            When the Corvette becomes an Electric car and I hope I never live to see it, who would buy them.?? Maybe a future generation. ??? I can't imagine going to a Track and not hear or smell the the multiple Cylinder gas motors on a track..

              I think you will see cars move to an all electric platform in the next 25 years or less. The 2025 efficiency standards set by Obama says all cars will get 54.5mpg average! Unless you have a flux capacitor from the future its a matter of time. Not sure even with current/future tech they can make an ICE get that kind of fuel economy from regular unleaded gasoline.

              If the big oil companies want to stay in business as they currently know it they better be working on a fuel that is less expensive than gas and has zero emissions. Most large cities have already begun to invest in grids/power stations for electric vehicles and battery tech has already come a long way just in the last 10 years because of all of the BIG investments being made.

              Start collecting cars now!

                Does any kid under 25 even know what a 8 track player or tape is? What about a black and white TV? I was born in the early 60's and anyone else from that era has seen a lot of change in technology. Remember the bag phone? I had two before getting a Motorola brick phone then the fist flip phone the Motorola Star Tac...Wow did I think I was a player!

                It is going to happen, like it or not its the future. Change is inevitable!

                  Love the Forum. As for big oil, ask the coal miners that for Generations lived and worked in the same industry what they are going to do.

                    I'd buy one. A Tesla Roadster's acceleration is amazing and that's old tech these days. And as much as I enjoy hearing my C6's burble, such sounds aren't essential to my appreciation of track events.

                    The big problem is batteries. Range, time to recharge, and weight. The first is close to being solved for everyday use (not trips) but the last two are still major issues.

                      The movie rental business used to be huge and no one ever thought that anything could happen to it, especially not to Blockbuster...then streaming became a thing. It's definitely going to be more difficult in this case, but oil is a non renewable resource which will eventually start to run out and technology will keep advancing. It's only a matter of time.

                        How many times during the last few decades have we read about the death of the internal combustion engine? Hundreds of times, or it thousands.

                        I am focused instead on 60 hours from now, when I will have a crush on more more Corvette, gas powered, V8!
