  • C8 Corvette Caravan Video Captured by Corvette_Nut (Were There 7, 8 or 9 of Them?)

    Looks as if we have a C8 IVERS parade (probably the same ones earlier today also captured by Corvette_Nut, though there at a rest area). Again, the more testing we are now seeing, the more I’m believing that the alleged, earlier C8 problems are now “in the rear view mirror.”

    Transferring into this thread, our earlier one from today — which had some of these C8’s at a rest stop.

            Thanks Corvette_Nut That last ones exhaust sounds good. Wonder why the first ones didn't seem to have a exhaust note?

                    Those were some cool videos...yes we are all corvette junkies!

                    That last corvette in the first video up top sounded pretty awesome...

                    the last videoe from tom Volk of Driven was fun too. I watch his podcast videos once a week...he is the guy who stiffs rolls of toilet paper rolls from the supermarket in the trunk of every car he tests...kind of funny...i like his various reviews although he leans towards cuv s and sedans more than sports cars for the most part.

                    i wonder if Tom will do that when he gets a test drive in the corvette?

                    thanks...i enjoyed the photos and videos of the c8...

                      I think this is the best C8 video released so far.



                      Note that the Porsche remains a distant third in this fever-pitched street race (reminiscent of the Fast and Furious movies).

                        Do you think that all these car have the same motor and etc.? Maybe they are checking out different gears and what ever on a longer trip. Just asking

                          Maybe the last one was accelerating more trying to catch up and creating more exhaust noise.
                          Great videos.

                              keep in mind that GM never substantiated an electrical problem causing a 6 month production delay. this seemed unlikely from the onset and was a "red herring" started by an unknowing person.
