  • My c8 will cost me 34 percent more to purchase than my present corvette cost me.

    just a heads up...my c8 will msrp out at 35 percent more than my present corvette listed out at...

    thats time passing us by..

    performance wise?

    zero to 60 mph in under 3 seconds versus 4 seconds.
    top speed 194 mph versus 190 mph.
    hamdling 1.04 lateral g s versus .99

    price 67000 versus 50 grand...

    price increase 34 percent and still happy to fork over the cash..

    job well done corvette engineers and marketing...

    how about you...?.

    present corvette comparison to your projected c8...?

    Not sure what year your present corvette is but I don't see 34%. It could be your option list but my comparison is below, like for like it's a 12% increase and 6 model years. Pretty good IMHO. Of course the one variable is the trans, my 2014 was a 7 speed, I don't recall the cost of the automatic in 2014.

    My 2014 Z51 2LT with exhaust, MRSC, Nav and Museum Delivery = $66980
    Equivalent C8 configuration = $75185 (~12% increase)
    Optimal C8 configuration for me = $77295 (~15% increase but not like for like)

      I just did the math comparing MSRP of our '17 GS 3LT with visible carbon fiber ground effects VS the C8 I would like as a Z51 3LT with visible carbon fiber ground effects and the MSRP difference is 4.72%.
      3LT Coupe, Z51 Torch Red with two toned Red/black interior. 5VM visible CF ground effects, Carbon Flash wheels, engine appearance package and Carbon Fiber interior trim. Mag Ride control. Red Calipers. VQK Splash Guards. Carbon fiber mirrors and spoiler. Carbon Fiber door handles & boomerangs, and front grill trim

        Comparing the MSRP’s, a 2019 automatic trans FE, 0-60 in 3.7 seconds, to a 2020 ME with its standard DCT, 0-60 in under 3.0, and when one includes mandatory to both the delivery freight charge, the C8 is $1,000 more. That is a stunning stat.

            All said and done, I have about a $10k higher cost for the C8 with the same options on my Z51, 3LT C7.

                  I was thrilled....i just thought it was funny ...

                  my oresent 2008 corvette z51 manual with npp that tops out at 190 mph, does zero to sixty in 4 seconds, pulls .99 lateral g s on the skidpad had an msrp of 50 grand when i bought it new.

                  now today im thrilled that the c8 z51 1LT with a dct and a rear mid engine does zero to sixty in under 3 seconds..pulls probably 1.04 on the skidpad and tops out at 194 cost 67 grand ..

                  forgive me for playing but im figuring 67 grand minus 50 grand is 17 grand more. Isnt an extra 17 grand more 34 percent extra?

                  Im just goofing around...and I thought it was funny...

                  hell of a deal 12 years later...im kind of hapoy....

                  i did add in the MRC FE4 on the 2020 versus the 2008 that didnt have it.

                  i purposely left out inflation...

                  remember this is just for fun.

                  the average new car sold in the USA in 2008 was 27958.
                  the average car sold in 2018/9 is 35219

                  Gm is doing a hell of a job...

                  50000/28000
                  67000/35000

                  thats impressive

                  the front engine c6 z51 manual cost 1.7 times the price of a new car in the year that vehicle was sold.
                  the rear mid engine c8 z51 with fe4 only costs 1.9 times the price of the average new car sold

                  all the crazyness that the c8 rear mid engine was going to be sooooo much more to build was all nonsense...

                  Corvette engineering did an amazing job...

                  its like dollar for dollar the same cost

                    I configured a C8 in a way that I would be happy with. Not everything I might want, but not giving up important things. Depending on some things that aren't clear yet (e.g., if I get suede seats do I need to pay extra for the suede steering wheel? If I get Adrenaline Red seats with (black) suede inserts, do I need to pay for the two-tone option?)*, it's priced between $70K and $71K.

                    Then I went to Chevy's website and built a C7 that matches as closely as possible. It's ~ 65.5K with a manual transmission, ~67.5K with the automatic. Since I would get the manual, that's about a $5K difference. Not too unreasonable, BUT. On the C7, I can drop the PDR, which knocks another $1800 off the price, so about $63.7 the way I would order it.

                    Call the C8 about $7K more expensive than MSRP of the C7 I would buy. About 11%. And that includes PDR, a DCT, and a bunch of new gadgets. Don't guess I can complain too much, but I sure wish I could drop the PDR and get suede inserts without having to pay for carbon fiber on the seat trim.

                    *On the C7, you pay for the two-tone option, but the suede steering wheel is included at no extra cost.

                      See post #9, he has a 2008 which accounts for the big difference.

                        Wasn't trying to compare to JB, just another point of comparison.

                          GM has done a FANTASTIC job! I still can't believe, they are giving us so MUCH car at $60K base.

                              Mine is not that big a difference, I think. Some I got I really didn't care about/want. I'm looking about 10% After 4 - 5 years, thats ok. I'm going to wait til 2021, so cost probably even more, but again, ok with that
