    Re: Corvette C8

    Mostly impressed by the extra 5 mph the Corvette seemed to have in every corner.

    Since the GT500 represents the zenith of a half dozen years of development for the same platform while the C8 is in year one and with a rather basic engine; it is then most likely the last time for the Mustang to win.


    Re: Corvette C8

    Ya, C8 performance it's impressive for a base car with Z51 package.

    Car seems to have pretty good traction, probably due to the mid engined design and a fantastic TC software programming (maybe they talked to McLaren? Smiley).

    Apparently McLaren isn't the only maker to put some (performance) pressure on the competition... But the interior is still a step behind and the exterior styling is a little incoherent. Frankly, it's a bargain from a performance perspective.

    Not sure if the C8 in it's current state is enough to put pressure on car manufacturers like Porsche for example.

    In Germany, the C8 is around 100k EUR (with Z51 package I think). This doesn't sound like much but you can get a used 911 for this money and many in this price range may think that the Corvette is too expensive.

    For 80k EUR, this car could have been a steal here but 100k is, in my opinion, too much.

    The Mustang GT 5.0 sells for around 45-50k EUR in Germany, a fair price for this car.

    GM needs to understand the mentality in Europe.

    These is enough demand here in the US that they don’t have enough to sell. They need to make hay while the sun shines. Don’t look for a price drop. Even my neighbor who is a Chevy reaper adds thousands over sticker and can’t enough to sell.

    Absolutely!!  The price will drop here quickly. 
    Im curious how many of the previous models are unsold and going for rock bottom prices. This inventory needs to go.

    The next Corvette Z06 will have a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter flat-plane twin-cam V-8 that spins to 9,000 rpm.

    Re: Corvette C8

    If it costs less than $100k as rumored in US, that will be quite impressive for the money.  I also heard they are thinking about adding a shifter and clutch pedal (that are only electronic switches for drive-by-wire) as an option to control the DCT.

    As much as I do like to operate a manual transmission, still the idea of adding a pedal and level to a DCT to pretend that I am doing something more than just providing a click on a  lever to change gears; well that really makes me think twice about just how dumb a manual transmission is by comparison to a DCT. Almost as dumb as adding this stuff to a DCT.


    Re: Corvette C8

    I doubt this "simulated DCT" would happen. It will be ridiculed by the audience that wants the Z06 in the first place.

    General Motors announced a major restructuring last week with key members of the Corvette Development team being moved to autonomous and EV product development.   https://insideevs.com/news/441210/gm-corvette-engineering-team-ev/

    Earlier today, General Motors and Honda announced a strategic alliance for North American vehicle development.  https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/general-motors/2020/09/03/general-motors-honda-partnership-north-america/5701104002/

    It doesn't take much to string the pieces together that General Motors and Honda are taking the nascent steps of a merger and certain products will face the chopping block as the product portfolio needs reduction to increase the global competitiveness of the new merged entity.

    Re: Corvette C8

    C8 did pretty well indeed... Smiley

    Brooks (from Dragtimes) also got a new Huracan Evo now, 1/4 Mile time was basically identical to his F8 Tributo (both on street tires, not drag tires, also no drag strip).

    My son has often contact to him (online), he is really a very nice guy but he is mostly into drag racing and achieving the best drag strip times, so maybe not too interesting for most of us here.

    What a waste of money on the C8 mods. It sounds terrible and the performance marginally better.Smiley

    Re: Corvette C8

    I wouldn't do any mods with any car (anymore). I outgrew this urge to make cars "better". I always keep my cars original, unless I can do a (not exactly legal) factory "mod" to improve things but these times are over I'm afraid.
