  • Stance/ride height

    Am I seeing things or does the stance/ride height on the reveal cars look lower than the cars we are seeing on the street? I really do think that the cars they had at the reveal has modified/lowered suspensions. Am I seeing things? It would be nice if this car did not require lowering out of the factory

      I am not referring to the adjustable front lift. I am referring to the gap between the fenders and the tires. The cars we saw on stage looked like there was very minimal wheel gap. The cars on the street all seem to sit higher. Less aggressive stance

        The cars on stage were illuminated with strong overhead spotlights. They would tend cast a shadow from the wheel arch down onto the tire. Maybe that's part of why the gap seems smaller? Dunno.

        On the Z51 package at least (not sure about non-Z51) the spring perches are height adjustable. To what degree I don't think GM has mentioned yet. Maybe enough to lower the car visibly, or maybe just for corner weighting adjustments and such.

          On the entry C8, the spring perches are NOT adjustable. They are, as Klinn noted, adjustable for the Z51. One reason for those who are on the fence between it and the Z51, might lean toward the latter if finances were to allow.

            Z51 has always been my choice since the C7 debuted. Back then it wasn’t much cost involved. For what you get it’s worth it on the C8 also. Plus resale you basically get your money back .....that’s been my experience. Plus I like the rear spoiler ,stance + the extra hp , exhaust and coolers for spirited driving in Hotlanta .....

              John, does the front Z/51 package with the E60 still have the adjustable perches? On another forum, someone said no, but that would not make much sense.

                I do not know for sure. I agree with you that that would make no sense at all.

                  That is a great point on resale. I just checked the MMR with Manheim and it seems as all the C7 Z51 cars bring 4K to 5K more at Dealer's auction compared to comparably equipped cars.

                      And it cost about $5K more to begin with, right? So it's not really holding it's value significantly better than the base version.

                        Ah, but while you own it, you are enjoying its benefits. Like a glass half full/half empty argument, I prefer to view it as an upgrade that, in the end, doesn't really cost much.

                        Unlike, say, a custom VIN number.

                          I am sorry if my response was not understandable. My point was that the Z51 DOES hold it's value. Especially in the base model LT1. Today's MMR for a 2019 Lt1 Base is $43,700. The average MMR for an Lt1 with the Z51 pkg is around $5,000 more and the reason I can not place an exact average number on the Z51 PKG option is is that they are all over the board as far as Value., based on actual sales throughout Manheim's Auctions Some being sold as high as $54,000 The point is the Z51 is a very desirable option. And, most reading this will think my numbers are low but they are factual. The reason the base 2019 Lt1 is selling for an average of $43, 700 is that the dealers are advertising them NEW as low as $45,000 and change with the current $3,000 Corvette loyalty incentive. NO, absolutely the Z51 PKG is an option that you will get all your money back and then some in some cases.
                          (MMR is based on Manheim Market Reports and what cars sell for in Auction nationwide at Manheim Auctions).
