  • Car and Driver pics of un-camo'd C8 driving around town

    Z51, roof off, just lazily driving around
    See the 2020 Chevy Corvette C8 Driving on the Road Undisguised

    Our spy photographers caught two different versions of the C8 out on the road with no camouflage for the first time.

    I guess they'll still have the convertibles camo'd when testing them?

      Interesting comments from C8 passenger.......
      You'd Better Have Fast Hands

      And that's the thing no one is saying yet: the point that not a single Corvette engineer or, for that matter, a single Chevy representative, is talking about. A mid-engined Corvette is probably a harder-to-drive Corvette. Moving mass to the middle means the need for faster hands is real and that catching a less stable car requires quicker reactions. It's the double-edged sword of physics, the potential burden of a nimbler Corvette.

        The paragraph after the one is equally important
        “But it probably won't be. The reality is that the Corvette team is filled with capable, invested engineers armed with the massive technological might of The General. They will, no doubt, tune the C8's Performance Traction Management to eke every last bit of grip and balance from its newly athletic chassis. They will make it save the overenthusiastic asses of thousands of Americans while sparing YouTube viewers the hassle of millions of disparaging comments. The C8, in ways different and better than the C7 before it, will likely be a remarkable car. At least it seems so from the passenger seat.”


        it’s not that big of a transition from driving a front engine to a mid engine car now a days. There are so many nannies keeping things in check. Not like back in the day Porsche Turbos

          I suspect it will be easier to drive faster than the C7, especially if you’re going from a manual transmission to the DCT.

            Better Handling = easier to drive
            Shorter front = Better Visibility = easier to drive. IMO

              They're already trying to portray it as a dangerous car using characterizations from 1970s Porsches with the engine mounted behind the rear axle.

              Mid engine is fine if the suspension is properly tuned, and GM has some of the best vehicle dynamics engineers in the world. Add in the electronic nannies and it's all good.

                Exactly and well said in above posts. Let us also add in that with the extra high center camera, we are going to have superb 180+ degree visibility.
