  • Single Most Important C8 Asset In Your Opinion

    Pick the one thing that excites you the most. While we wait for news to break out from Carlisle over the next few days, what is the most exciting C8 component to you?

    Is it is exterior?

    It’s interior?

    It’s performance

    Or?

    To me, it is it’s looks.

    In the intervening years since I got away from the '84 Corvette nightmare, had many Porsches, several NSXs and even a Ferrari. The absolute best of that grouping was the NSX, a car that did everything right with a unique precision and usability. For me, putting the the engine in the correct location drew me back to the C8 with great anticipation of a superb handling car that is quite attractive.

      For me, it's the impressive blend of attributes - the overall package.

      If I had to pick one characteristic, for the Coupe I'd say it's the beautiful presentation of the engine. This is the main reason I'm considering the Coupe over the Convertible.

        It's the overall look of the car. True to the Corvette history, but embracing the future. The front engine Corvette had reached the limits. Now, the boundaries have been reset, much more to come in the future.

            Looks looks looks. If that wasn’t spot on then the rest didn’t matter. Look at the Supra for example.

                  Like others, the overall package. I will also flag the OEM all season tires. That will expand the months of usage for many folks. The C7 with summer only tires shouldn't be driven under 40F. With the C8 AS tires, I don't think there is a low temperature restriction at all!

                    Agree Swift93, my 91 NSX is a great car and the complete package. I'm hoping the C8 hits or exceeds those marks, so to answer the question, for me is that it's a combination of all the elements.

                      I agree with everyone's comments above. To me it is the mid engine platform that Chevy has laid down. Yes they have kept the Corvettes design heritage in the C8 but the performance of this car is great now but my imagination is going crazy on what is to come next!

                          It’s interior?

                          It’s performance

                          Or?
                          For me it’s the design leap of the mid-Engine and how exquisite the integrated design of the exterior and interior is and how it perfectly frames the fantastic performance .In the aviation world , where I’ve spent over 45 years , we say “if it looks right ,it flys right”
                          this C8 looks right
                          And I can’t wait to drive it.
                          It’s the real deal.

                            Does that include the 737MAX:-) Just kidding. I'm retired from Continental/United.

                              Most impressive thing to me is the performance as a naturally aspirated V8. And price (if I get it pick 2)
