    Thank You John. A lot of people in my community down here in Florida keep asking me and I had initially told them Day after reveal. Thanks so much.

      36/37” inseam and fits fine. So posted someone who actually sat in the C8. As we all advise, for every OEM designs cars to fit for the 95% of the “centurions” as to weight and height, when one’s measurements are not in the 5%, strongly advise one find a way (even if traveling hundreds of miles), to sit yourself within one to be sure you fit comfortably.

      All this filtered within the C8’s having +1” more legroom; +1” more headroom, and being wider from one armrest to the other factors.

      Best of luck that you do.

        Recline seat angle increased from 9 degrees in the C7 to 17 degrees in the C8.

          Large person fits nicely in the C8. Thanks to Yaupon for this information.

Said he had plenty of leg/head room.

                Another tall & large fits, and fits better than in his C7.

                I went to the Corvette tour in Northridge this afternoon and I have good news for tall guys (if your height is in your legs), I'm 6'6" 270 and despite the Corvette rep being highly skeptical before I sat, I fit. I actually have more room in the C8 than I do the C7, a car I didn't buy because I didn't think I could make it work. Granted, it's tight, but doable tight (every car south of a full sized pickup is tight for me). I have about an inch between my knees and the dash, and fit in the passenger side with about an inch to spare--I don't fit in the C7 passenger side without rubbing the dash. It's actually better than in the attached pics because I have about an inch between my leg and the wheel when my left foot is on the dead pedal and the wheel out. That said, I carry most of my length in my legs.

                  6’6” and he fits nicely.

                  Can’t wait. First corvette aka my dream car. Couldn’t fit in the C7 but can fit in the C8!

                    6 ‘4 1/2”, 35” inseam, 228 lbs and “plenty of room.”
