    Golf bags are really hard to load from the side. The moment arm the long bags create would make them feel very heavy with your arms extended.

    That high wing is going to be a real pain to load stuff in the trunk. It looks great but I am definitely skipping that option.

    It does not move. The rear lid opens just before where the spoiler attaches.
    You will need long arms to get stuff over that wing then.

    The high wing looks good, to me. If i reduces the top speed, I would notice often, if ever. I would notice the appearance delight all the time. The high wing is for us slow pokes, who hang around 40 to 120 MPH.. For being seen looking good.

    I walked buy it the first time at the reveal thinking the frunk was pretty deep, then only when I doubled back did i realize that there was black, airline overhead bin bag (9”x14”x22” resting flat on the bottom of it). Even still over a 1” in height above it on its windshield side, and probably around 7” (maybe more) on its front side.

    Great video, Nice to see that gorgeous woman climbing into the frunk. Would not have thought it was that deep.

    Thanks 455SDguy for the above info and for this video link; this video has some good Q&A — though why do not folks just give up asking questions about future product which the GM team smartly ducks each time) — and thus use the time allotted to ask more questions about already revealed product.

    The Peterson Video that I was referring to was done by youtuber Speed Phenom. Below is the link and it is a very good info video from 2 Chevy Engineers.

    Or install the brackets underneath the fascia for those who want the high wing, design a way for us to not need to remove the rear fascia to install it, maybe just to remove the rear trunk liner and with those brackets already factory installed, make the non-fascia-removal high wing install possible. That would be a dream.

    I hope that with so many us wanting the High Wing they will reconsider making the 5ZU option a factory installed option.

    I just watched the Peterson Museum C8 VIP presentation and Kirk was asked the question about the High Wing stats. He stated that the High Wing is 3" higher off the deck than the Z51 stock spoiler, and he stated that it does create more down force than the 400 lbs the stock spoiler does but most important it does not create any drag limits. Awesome news Kirk.
    Thank you for that update!

Perhaps some more at Corvette At Carlisle, Pebble Beach (if later confirmed), and definitively some more info at NCM’s 25th. However, for sure top speed in all three configurations is now on my “ask list.”
