Any new vette is a good thing, only thing I dont like is the trans. I'm sure a manual will be available soon. Luv my "14", will have to drive the c8 b4 deciding on one

Quoted from mbwalker:

Every single one of my vetts were/are manual. Even my daily drivers are manuals. Right or wrong...the computer controlled trannys are faster, at least on a road course. Mine doesn't have launch control, would be nice to try that.

I know, but I like a manual in a sports car

Quoted from mbwalker:

No disagreement there... I guess wait and see what later versions bring. Even the latest version of the Chevy Colorado (I have the original model) didn't have a manual tranny at first but I think it does now. Back to C8...maybe it will show up if the demand is there.
Like it or not, I think the manual tranny's days are numbered - regardless of the platform. I recall even the Corvette's professional driver's (maybe the race team?) say the auto is faster. I suspect with the dual clutch, even more so.

True, but a manual is still funner for me to drive, I'm not interested in goin to the track, never have. Any fool can set launch control and let an auto tranny do the work

Quoted from Mike_J:

I’m with you guys on that. I have a ‘69 911S that is as raw and visceral as you can get. It’s not close to being the fastest car, but it feels great.

Something about downshifting a auto just cant match. I'm sure auto is faster, but really? Does less than a 10th of a second matter if you're driving for the love of driving? Could care less about top speed or cornering on a track. Just dig driving it

We have a 14 convertible, 10k miles now, no issues at all. Drove it from Tahoe to middle of Washington, wanted to keep goin. Very comfy. I'm concerned about engine noise in the c8. Any decibel levels revealed yet, compared to the c7?
