I put down a deposit in April knowing very little about pricing. I’m pleasantly surprised.

For me, the taillights still look awful, but I like the ZR-1 inspired exhaust tips.

Quoted from rai:

I heard the last model C7 sales number took a steep dive as people waited for this car.
If anyone wants to see a dealer that specializes in Corvette sales have super prices. Can get a 2019 as low as $45k.

That is the dealer who took the deposit for my car.

Quoted from TKDalumni:

GM definitely nailed the price point, but they killed the corvette heritage and the rear end is fugly! I believe the higher trim c7’s will be collectible in years to come because of this.

The C7 doesn’t have a traditional Corvette rear end either. The taillights look like something from Japan, just like the new C8.

Quoted from FalconDriver:

That’s the place to go everyone here in PA heads there for a vette! Yea that color scheme for interior seems a little euro IMO.

It’s going to be crowded there on Thursday night. They are having a cocktail party and preview for repeat Kerbeck customers and those who have given them a deposit for the C8. Maybe Miss Vicki will make an appearance.

I ordered the Z51 at MSRP, whatever that turns out to be. I’m sure you will be able to get these at a discount within a year of release.

Quoted from rai:

That’s what I think. Electric cars also don’t thrill me. Sure they accelerate hard but I like the power delivery and interaction you get from a gas engine and manual transmission. Preferred normal aspiration engine like S2000 or e93 M3 like I owned. Drive a turbo M4 now there’s a lot of power turbo but it’s not linear. Also dove a Tesla before was fine but not that engaging or fun to drive. More of a driving pod than enthusiastic driving car. Imo

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.

Quoted from TKDalumni:

All season tires are absolutely laughable at this level. By the time you decently option the car, it’ll be $95k at least. They should’ve went more American, than trying to be European. Let’s see.

The base car with Z51 package and just about every other option will not approach 95K. My dealer is telling me to expect mid 70s for a fully loaded base car.

I’m at list from Kerbeck on my Z51. I get the feeling that they are trying to sell as many as they possibly can.
I also hopped on the list for the ZR-1, whenever they decide to announce it.

I understand that old farts like myself are upset about the transition to mid engine, but
how much further could Chevy go with the front engine/rwd configuration? I’m happy. They upgraded the interior. Now, I just want the round taillights back.

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

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.
