As I said before, they should have gone retro '67

#152 76 days ago

I have a 2008 that I ordered ever option on it. I just attended a customer event yesterday at Van Chevrolet in Scottsdale for the unveiling of this new car and then had a blue one that everyone was allowed to sit in and touch, it’s so very different. Need to drive it to decide but It just feels so different already. They did have a ton of 2019 on the lot.

Quoted from rai:

I really don't mind waiting a couple of years for the supply to catch up as well there might be some kinks that are worked out in the first few years

This is exactly what I'm thinking. While I'm confident that the build quality will be good, seeing that it's an all-new model, I'd rather wait a year for a 2021 so any issues can be addressed in the first model year. It may cost a bit more in '21, but it would give me peace of mind.

Thinking of trading my black 2008 4LT two tone interior custom ordered corvette with all options into the dealer for a new 2019 if the deal is right with my trade in. Dealer doing $10k in discounts on 2019 LT2 or LT3 grand sport coupe. Any thoughts, just trying to justify if worth updating my car at this point in time while mine still has value. I do use mine as an everyday driver for work. I don’t need to but curious if worth it or wait about 3-5 more years or more for the new version.

I say wait for the new convertible. The way it’s designed, you don’t lose anything from the coupe. Plus, you’re in Arizona...think of all the times you’ll have the top down.

On the wait list for the convertible as of yesterday. My wife saw the photos of it and really wants one.

Yes I know, but I have a killer deal on the 2019 Black 2LT or 3LT and would save me much money then waiting on new one at this point in time. I use mine as an every day driver and just getting ready to break 45k miles. I would not by the new version until a few years anyway and would cost almost Maybe around $12-$15k or more if I was to order I new one this year. I sat in the new ones and know they are performance better but having the last year of front engine 2019 will work for now for at least the next 10 years or little less.

I have a 2019 Z51...the car is amazing.

My 1 regret was not getting the Grand Sport.

#159 38 days ago

I am very curious what future models will look like. I have a C6 grand sport and love the wide-body stance. C7’s also have a wider body in more expensive models. With the C8 starting with a wide-body width, I wonder what they will do to enhance it’s looks. It is gorgeous as is, and may leave no reason to upgrade except performance, and I can hardly handle the performance as is.

Yes the 2019 I am looking at is a Grand Sport 2LT with black aluminum wheels rims, data/video recorder, carbon fiber interior package, carbon wheel center caps w/crossed flags logo, battery pkg, carbon flash badge pkg, etc or the 3LT Grand Sport has no extra options except battery package and includes data/video recorder in 3LT with brushed nickel standard rims. The major difference in 3LT In interior wrapped more with leather But I like the black wheel rims and carbon fiber in the 2LT much more. I have always liked chrome rims as my current one has 10 spoked but not an option on the new one as would have to upgrade separate cost. The cost difference between 3LT and 2LT model on the lot is $1,695. I like the way the 2LT looks with extra options almost makes total cost of car the same. Any thoughts? Here are two pics of the cars.

I am eagerly waiting to see the magazine tests of the C8 and see if it will reach 0-60 in 3 seconds.

For conversation the incredible Ford GT does 0-60 in 3 seconds.

2LT. I like look of it better.

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

Thanks, me too. I liked the 3LT At first but my girl has convinced me and I have to look of 2LT better looking too. Black is my favorite color just not use to seeing rims black but it works well on this car.

#164 36 days ago

Motor Trend has some nice pictures of the vert. I think I prefer the lines of the coupe as well as the ability to see the engine under glass. But the Very looks nice with the top down and is able to raise/lower the top at speeds up to 30 mph. I have owned 2 convertibles S2000 and Z3 nothing better than a nice warm spring day with the top down. Overall I prefer the coupe a bit better.

So I was ready to make a deal on the 2LT with black rims above and told my guy over the phone last Friday would come in today to final. He was off Sunday and Monday and I was busy Fri sat, I did not hear back from him today so sent him a text saying work to do in the office and Friday would be best for me after work. His reply the 2LT sold today, so now left if get the 3LT with nickel rims? And cost a little more. What to do this is harder than deciding my 2nd pin been trying for years after playing tons.

Press reviews are out.

https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/a29462701/2020-chevy-corvette-by-the-numbers/

C&D test numbers

0-60 2.8s
0-100 7.2s
0-130 13.2s

You can see the horsepower deficit to the Ford GT as the speed picks up but on a short sprint it’ll be very close. They have nearly identical rolling start times 5-60 mph.
