    You know when you crumple a piece of paper and then try to lay it down flat again?

    Re: Corvette C8

    If General Motors delivers on the motor, purportedly a flat plane V8, then less emphasis is placed on the appearance, it will win in the marketplace.   The C8 Corvette looks better in person than in images too.

    Yes and hopefully it will have less problems than Fords. 


    Re: Corvette C8

    Good point Leawood!  With the issues encountered by Ford's 5.2 liter flat plane crank v8, it will be a tremendous embarrassment if GM's 5.5 liter v8 turns out to be far less troublesome.


    Re: Corvette C8

    Hopefully it's more reliable than the standard C8.  A buddy has had numerous issues and a recall or two on his...

    Good vid on the engineering aspects of the engine:

    This car will sell pretty well...one of the last high revving n/a cars I guess.

    Re: Corvette C8

    Dealers are reporting a 3 to 4 year waitlist for the car.  However, many are just tire kickers and won’t get one.

    Unfortunately but that’s a downside of a franchise dealership network.  I am already in contact my assigned Corvette Concierge and have started the order process.

    A driving academy using the new C8 Corvettes. In Germany.

    Our initial impression on the C8 being a world class level car isn't wrong. 

    It's fast and it can handles. And it would seems it's durable enough to be abused in a driving school.

    Bravo to GM's current build quality. 

    I should know, our track had been partnering with GM for a few years now, hosting their Camaro Driving Academy. Our fleet of 20 Camaros in various specs have been close to bulletproof even being thrashed under track condition.
