Fair enough. Trans issues though, right? Not just overheating but other significant problems, no? This is their first DCT that I'm aware of, so that could be interesting.

I donít know anything about trans issues, but I didnít pay that close attention to previous corvettes. This is the first one Iíve wanted to own.

... hopefully by the 3rd model year a manual is on offer.

I actually think the front end looks very much corvette. About as corvette as a mid engined car could look:



And some more pics I hadn't seen before:

Online configurater is up and running (cosmetics only currently). Looks like you can have the accents, including the side pods, done in body color. Looks better to my eye, at least in the 3D model they let you play with.

This car will be amazing on the track, but my biggest concern is driving enjoyment on the road- no manual, electric steering, loads of grip, and portly (est ~3600 lbs wet). What does everybody else think?

Lack of manual blows, C7 had enough chassis feel to make up for modern steering to the extent that it wasnít completely numb, and no idea on the weight yet, waiting to see the final number.

Obi, the pics are way too small... Would you kindly enlarge them?

The C8 is a definite disrupter. Porsche best be worried about its 718/Cayman sales.

I hear lots of folks cancelled their Supra and GT500 orders following this release.

Now that there is no engine up front, I hope the steering in the C8 will be delicious!!

In a few years, we could pick one up for 20% under sticker...new. Joy of Joys. What a fantastic point of view!!

From experience and having owned a E90 M3 and a C7 Z06, the steering feel in the C7 was way better than the overboosted hydraulic E90 M3 steering.

To date, nothing beats the steering feel of a E46 M3.

GM's engineers know what they are doing when it comes to chassis and steering feel. The C7 Z06 and ZR1's are exceptions of when power was greater than what the chassis could bear.

You should drive an Alpha chassis car (SS 1LE or ZL1 1LE) and it will change your mind on chassis dynamics.

Love this side profile -
