      Pretty exciting performance sportscar by the corvette team...

      how did gm do it?

      gm studied the competition for quite a few years while it produced front mid engine sports cars that out performed the rear mid engine competition.

      gM knew exactly what inherent benefits of rear mid engine vehicles were even before the c8 program began ...gM engineers had studied the competition in great detail to manage to get the previous generation corvettes to outperform the exotics on the track...

      now that the corvette team signalled the move to a rear mid engine platform it was dragon slayer time once again for corvettes.

        THE TIME IS RIGHT. GM is going to hit it out of the park, They have to.

          I am convinced the C8 will have so many options to choose from....the corvette buyers are going to loose their minds deciding what to get...

          the profit center on optional equipment should be interesting to say the least...

          really looking forward to the reveal..

            I will go out on a limb here. This change is a generation late, not by choice, but bankruptcy. Yeah, GM and the Corvette engineering team took the extra time to further their design efforts. But, what counts is that this sea change is critical to Corvette. The design, quality, and performance have to be worlds better, with no major showstopper issues. And, the price MUST be within the traditional Corvette performance/price guidelines.
            If the team stumbles out of the gate, after all this time to get it right, Corvette is in very big trouble. I’m hoping for, and rooting for, this to be an out-of-the-park grand slam home run. This may well be the last IC Corvette, it HAS to be successful moving forward.

              It will be a huge hit the C8 team is the best of the best and they have used every tool in the bag to get this car to market. They are going to break all the traditional rules like price & power to make the C8 a global home run! The conquest sales will fuel the second shift. I am still a firm believer that in another year or two they will also be producing the Cadillac version as sales will be non stop and they will get a bigger premium for the Blackwing.

              I can’t wait, I keep bugging Dave at Kerbeck to move me up the list as I am ready to buy my new C8 today!
