  • The only downside of a rear mid engine design...

    The one sad thing i can think of with the rear mid engine design...my puppy dog and my son cant go together to the local dog park..

    used to be my dog would enjoy driving in-the hatchback area of the corvette with my son in the front seat...

    the dogs almost 13 so we dont go to the dog oark any more ..but for years the three of us would hop in the corvette to head over to the dog park..

    my son and my pup learned a lot of social cues from-the dog park friendly people,,,

    We don't go often so it doesn't really matter any more ...but with the c8 there is no place for a medium sized dog other than the front seat...

    this dog looks like a hairy bear but this breed doesnt shed...(rastifarian dreadlock Puli sheepdog)

    she loves to drive in the car.l,

    with a c8 no room for the kid and the dog at the same time...

    oh well...guess Ill take one at a time in the c8

    not a big deal...

    If you leave the roof on, you could fit a small child in the trunk.

        I can't believe it..... Our daughter has a Puli (black) named Marley. What a great dog. I'm babysitting it while she's in Europe on business for 10 days. We do this 4 or 6 times a year so Marley is part of the family. We just added a new BMW i8 Roadster (mid engine) and it has a very deep storage area behind the seats so when I get in the car with my wife he jumps in the seat and goes right into his 'cubby', turns around and lays his head on the console. He's a 'front seat' dog and refuses to ride in the back of my daughters SUV. It shouldn't be a problem in a ME C8 Coupe. Don't know about the spider. I'll know as soon as I get mine....

          I could but dont want to go to jail for cruel and inhumane treatment to my 24 year old autistic son or the dog...lol

          the hatch for the dog wasnt a problem as the dog loved it....hoping in fromthe drivers seat but picking up the dog and then closing a trunk on the dog would seem a bit over the top...

          somebody would be calling the police and with most rear mid engine cars i think Id be worried Id be cooking the dog...

          i probalby could get my 24 year old autostic kid back there and since he doesnt talk...whose he going to tell?

          (im kidding! ) I d never do that to him.....

            I was kidding, too.

            Besides, at 24 he's probably too big to fit anyway!

              Marley sounds awesome...Pulis are really great dogs...the I8 sounds cool too!

              Small world right...

              thanks for sharing.

                Seems like a missed opportunity that they didn't add a "mother in law seat" to the C8
