    Agreed! I don't know why, but it makes a difference. Maybe it is total exposure to the elements-kind of like driving a motorcycle without a helmet 👍 Click image for larger version

        • So who has changed over to the vert from an original C8 spot in line?
          Are the wait list #'s low?
          I guess it's impossible to guestimate allocations on them at this point.
          Is it fair to assume that all current options/colors < other that the top > will be offered in the vert model?

            • Engine carbon fiber and lighting is probably 2 grand..
              black side rockers $1000
              3LT vs 2 LT $4 grand.
              z51 fe4 vs standard suspension 7 grand
              standard wheels versus optional wheels $1000
              E60 versus what weve had forever $1500

              anybody wanting a retractable hardtop versus targa is easy to manage for the COOLEST C8...

                Sounds like you’re trying to talk yourself into it!

                Orrrrrr.....you want others that are ahead of you on the list to switch, moving you up the list! 😎👍

                  A little bit of both..it just so happens many corvette buyers are so interested in getting the first corvette c8 they can get their hands on...but I know many guys who once they see the convertible will be trading in the targa for a vert...

                  its what they do...

                  i guess if I were smart Id line up to buy their targa but I wont...and they will first buy the targa and within six months say to themselves...”god I really wish i waited for the convertible”

                  i have a meeting tonight in the local corvette club for dinner and I bet this story I just told plays out for the umpteenth time..

                  i am laughing as i type this because its happened time after time...

                  gotta scratch your head and say...”dont you learn from the last time”

                  one gentleman has a wife that is so wonderful....she just smiles as she watches this play out generation after generation...new model after new model...

                  you just want to say...dont do that again..thousands and thousands of dollars down the drain but alas its not really an issue for the couple I have in mind...

                  if I go to this meeting tonight Ill find out what his dealer suggested...ill fill you in on the outcome.

                  i told him...just wait three months....

                  well thats my funny story for the day...

                  sorry if it seems rampant in my thread postings.

                  he is a nice guy with quite the story of life.

                  • As much as I want the convertible, because I think it’s better looking, more exotic, I know my wife is right that I don’t need the extra sun. I have some damage done years ago, and the dermatologist says “stay out of the sun”, use sun screen, blah blah blah. I thought with the number I had I would decide after the convertible reveal. Then got bumped up and can go early. Maybe coupe now, Z06 convertible later.

                      I hear you...i just spoke last night with a buddy that got lucky after exploratory surgery and its serious concerns...

                      no or should i say very few married men are going to hear from their wife..lets get the convertible...

                      its all about the ladies hair...


                      unless of course your Meyers web!

                      im kidding of course but Id imagine as we discuss this...maybe corvette spyders wont follow the ferrari model of 53 percent of sales being convertible...

                      maybe 53 percent of the ferrari owners that buy spider are the 53 percent are divorced and now just cruising top down with their girlfriends...hehehe

                      There are special women who happily drive top down with a ponytail or a hat...and some even that enjoy the experience as a driver or passenger...doesnt matter...

                      they are the romantics.

                        I officially changed today. I'm in the first 5 coming to Canada. I purchased from the #1 corvette dealer in the country.

                          I think you made a wise choice...that RHT is stunning..its a passionate design.

                          Let me say I love the targa as well...its awesome etc...the spider version is off the chain crazy stunning...

                            I most enjoy driving my convertible with the top down in the evenings-once the sun has gone down.
