  • POLL: C8 Option Pricing & Contest

    To add a little more spice into our C8 Stingray option pricing countdown, with GM stating in writing that they are releasing this information next Thursday (15th), let’s have a poll, and I will donate a small prize to the winner.

    Here’s the rules for this poll IF you wish to be eligible for the contest prize:

    1) You must post in the thread itself, listing your estimate (to the nearest $1) as to each of the five options. If your post does not give a specific price for each option, your entry will not be considered.

    2) If you list and provide a price for other options other than the five, in the case of a tie, you get bonus points if you are correct on more specific options you are right with your pricing.

    3) The poll/content ends at midnight (EST), on Tuesday, August 13th (just in case GM were to release prices one day earlier).

    4) You may change your individual post estimates as many times as you want (maybe others will convince you of their wisdom).

    The five options one must list in your own, subsequent post are the costs of:

    A) 2LT

    B) Z51 package

    C) GT2 seats

    D) ZZ3 engine appearance package

    E) E60 Front Lift
    2LT is lower than $5,000
    2LT is $5,000 or higher
    Z51 is lower than $5,000
    Z51 is $5,000 or higher
    GT seats are lower than $1,750
    GT seats are $1,750 or higher
    ZZ3 is lower than $1,200
    ZZ3 is $1,200 or higher
    E60 is lower than $1,600
    E60 is $1,600 or higher

                            That would be very nice, though personally, seeing the car and knowing is goes under 3.0 seconds to 60 MPH, Mark Reuss could have livestream announced it was stating at $64,888 (one of my earlier guesses), and I would have been pleased as punch that reveal night.

                            I think we got at least a $5K MSRP, 7.18.18 bargain, and would not be surprised if that that initial $5K, will be “returned” to GM when options pricing is announced this coming Thursday.

                              I would think the multitude of options themselves could aid the corvette individual transaction price increase more so than each option price dramatically increased.

                              at least I hope...

                              i normally dont load my cars up with options so i shouldnt be too surprised.....

                              2LT could be the only wild card based on increased content from the c7...justifiably so.
