    I truly hope it will be a great evolution for the Corvette that is reachable for its already loyalty buyers and attract a new customer base.
    Alternatively it could end being somewhat of transition of the Corvette that leaves behind much of its current customer base that now can't afford a premium model and is forced to buy a low to at best a mid speced car in options and performance. With this scenario GM would seem to be trying to bring the Corvette to an elite level supercar attracting a buyer with deeper pockets and super car tastes.
    Keeping the C7 around leaves the speculation on "why" quite interesting when comparing these 2 scenarios. Is GM just covering their butt and providing an escape route for the 2nd possibility?
    I expect the C8 to be an amazing and invovative machine.... but can us working stiffs get a fast(er) one....? :Shifty:

    Now that's a coincidence Brian. Ford had 23,000 leftover Focus's this year that they fire-sale'd to the highest bidder... Guess we know where the front end sections all went.... :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Although this looks fairly cool... I'd never see this as a Corvette. Not for the traditionalists ( am I one?) who are front engine,rwd. This "Corvette" will be for a new generation of interest. Not "us guys". I don't know. Maybe the few of you guys with $$$ can be the first one to grace the forum with your new purchase.

    I'm saving up for a Honda Ruckus Scooter for my work commute.... lol.

    I'd take yours over a C7 GS,anyday Brian. My other favorite colour other than "blues" is and shade of grey.

    hmmmmm.... that's close to 90 Cdn.... Can't see it.... My bottom starting number is still 135. Only way that changes is if H3ll freezes over again and Cdn and US dollar are at par.... lol...
