    When my son and I drove his GT500 cross country, my right foot would have earned us a bag of tickets if not for the cruise control. Cars like that tend to creep above the limit.

      I have to agree. I use cruise to keep me from accidentally speeding and the adaptive cruise on my Jag is great. Would welcome it if they add it to the C8.

          When the adaptive cruise slows the car down, does it turn on the brake lights to let those behind you know you are slowing?

              I disagree. The vast majority of Corvettes will never see what you term "Sports Car" category. Do I enjoy a day or so running the twisties? You bet! The majority of my drive time is spent on average roads.

                But isn’t that describing a cruiser? I didn’t say it isn’t appropriate for a Corvette, only that it seems a better fit to a highway cruiser than to a sports car where the driver wants to control transmission, throttle, and brakes rather than have the car do it for him.

                  Semantics .......... You're splitting hairs. If that were the case then there wouldn't be anyone that is wanting the "True Sportscar Effect", buying a C8. Why? Because according to those that know better than the rest of us, only a true sports car has a manual transmission. Without a manual, how can the car and driver be as one ?

                    When I go out to have fun and shoot corners, the cruise control is turned off. When I'm driving a thousand miles on an interstate, the cruise control is on, because I don't want to get speeding tickets. I'm sure the C8 will have cruise control, and I will use it, the adaptive part will not be a concern. I thank you all for replying to this query, I have learned a lot, but will not be disappointed with my C8.

                      Well stated Will. I feel exactly the same way. Yes, the C8 has cc Is it adaptive? Who knows. I don't care one way or another.

                          I assume adaptive cruise control doesn’t work well with manual transmissions, but in automatics I assume it handles braking and accelerating so the driver only has to worry about steering and signaling? How does the driver alert the car to red lights, stop signs, and that sort of thing? Or do you brake and then resume past the stoppage? Could be cool for a commute, but I’m not sure I would trust it in city traffic.

                            Sadly so. I have it in the CTS V and the wifes Genesis G70. Love it ! That along with auto-dim headlights should have been std equipment on a car of this price point. Sname on GM for cheaping out IMHO.

                              In my experience, adaptive cruise control is not as smooth and predictable as a human. It's still handy though. I agree with some of the other people here. Cruise control in general saves me from getting tickets. On the interstate, I set the speed and leave it, except for changes in speed zones. I use the "speed up" and "speed down" buttons a lot, so I don't have to use my feet.
