    Cool... it is surprising car and driver suggested the number five would be the starting number for both hp and tq and they were of by 30 on torqu and 5 or ten on hp...

    thats kind of weird after launch which stated 495 hp and 470 lb/ft of tq with the z51

    i wonder why they have different higher numbers suggested after the launch....

    thats pretty rare since most manufacturers give out press releases on hp and tq way before the launch with a news blackout NDA so the press gets it right after the launch reports are mire accurate..

        Except, ironically, Corvette Magazine's next upcoming issue.

        They'll make up for it though. During the early C7 days they had a lot of great articles going into more detail than the other mags since they're Vette-focused.

          I took a couple of subscriptions just to be able read about the corvette this year. I went with paper for the old school charm...

          i remember enjoying years of reading paper magazines and its easier to read laying out by the pool...

          can't wait for the driving impressions and performance testing articles to come...

          you tube is kind of fun too..

          believe it or not I “ll also enjoy the automotive podcasts as they discuss their impressions and performance tests of the upcoming c8...

          should make waiting for delivery more palatable.

            The mags seem to be favoring red Corvettes, Me too. Definitely have to hit the News Stands.
