  • Tall Drivers

    It has been sometime for me but can a tall driver ( 6' 4" ) fit in a new 2020 Corvette. What about general ease of entry and getting out as well. Coming from the newer Mustang world where it is comfortable for me. The C 8 Corvette intrigues me.

      I felt there was a little more spaciousness inside the C8 compared to my C7. Two different C8 Corvette team staff said that it was +1” seat travel, +1” seat cushion to underside of roof height, and wider between the armrests (but no measure distance given for the last descriptor).

      I have seen that chart that was posted elsewhere showing smaller measurements within the cabin, but again that is not my own perspective and at noted about those factors were provided to me by the two different C8 Corvette engineers at the reveal while we were either sitting inside or next to the car.

      At the same time, having been through this while I was the Exec Moderartor on another forum during the first year of the C7, I saw tens of posts there and at another forum with the following specific, posted examples:

      I am 6’2’, 230 pounds and I can not fit into a C7;
      I am 6’7” 240 and I have found a way I fit comfortably;
      I am 6,4” and I can not fit at all;
      I am 6’1, 305 pounds and I can’t fit in it.
      I am 6’5”, medium build and it works for me.

      All this is critical why GM needs to get out the promised list of 125+ dealerships where the C8 will be traveling (first location is tomorrow at a San Diego dealership) — so larger folks can sit in the car and determine for themselves.

      Again, my impression and I sat in the car for 5 minutes along side Tristan Murphy, C8 Lead Interior Designer, showed me some of its features (and he was one of the individual s who told me about its measurements), was that it was more roomy than my C7 by a small amount. Later, Tristan was outside the car, talking to me about different features.

      I give super accolades for the roughly 50 Corvette team staff that were everywhere walking around the displays after the livestream. They were helpful to everyone, chatting to every person who walked up to them. As usual at GM sponsored and staffed Corvette events, every person who wishes, can walk up and talk with any GM person there.

      Not being bashful I walked up to an initiated a conversation with Mary Barra before the livestream, saw her again afterwards and said, “Ten thumbs up for the C8; I placed my deposit on our C8 down 4 1/2 years ago.” To which she said and gestured, “Thumps up; thank you!”

      BTW, the lady behind the car in the above picture is another GM Engineer, its Corvette Program Manager, Kelly Belore.
