    I'm expecting dozens of great pics/vids of the C8 convertible here on MECF!
    I cant help but be amazed at how close fvs and chacron were in their depiction of the coupe and hopefully the convertible.

    John, a lot of the links on that page are broken.

    Looks like a lot of earth tones.
    Oh, dear. I'm getting a Z. Bronze Vette to go with my "Luxury Brown Pearl" Jeep Grand Cherokee. Pretty earthy.

    It has been said that, if there were no women, all men would just wear brown.

    BTW, how come no green C8? How would it look in Goodwood Green?

    They actually applied for active aero and wing patents 2 years ago. The original leaked CAD drawings clearly showed an active rear integrated wing. Will most likely be the Z06, Zora or both.

    Absolutely. I really like the new 992 but let’s face it. That car is a $90k car at best when compared to an $80k Corvette.

    I think he's partially right. The details are really busy. But in spite of that, the car is phenomenal looking.

    The corvette is the BOLDEST car in the group...there is not another even close in lines, sadly all the others have little definition...the waiting period for the corvette may be out to 2022...

    Well, personally, I agree with that. For example, when I look at the hood, I think about half of all those edges and creases should disappear. What remains would be a cleaner, stronger design. All just my opinion of course, I respect yours too. Anyway, it's not enough of an irritation to keep me from pulling my wallet out and buying the most expensive car I've ever owned! >gulp<
