I like Corvette's and have had a few but this one, to me, looks to much like a Camaro. That's not necessarily a bad thing but although the new C8 design is OK I prefer the previous model(s) styling. Chevrolet going to a mid engine sports car is a pretty radical step so it remains to be seen what, if any, mechanical problems that sometimes plague new model vehicles are reported.

From what I have read the majority of the first production models have been sold to buyers that have been on a waiting list since last year and that dealers will be tacking on a $5k to $10k  "premium" to the MSRP of remaining stock. I am waiting to see if the the C7 & C8 models will be discounted. Should find out by the beginning of the year.

We had a C6, really liked the C7 and wouldn't mind renting one again for a roadtrip.

I've had a C3 '72 454 4 sp manual CI Ragtop, C5 '03 350 CI 4 sp auto Ragtop  and a '11 Grand Sport 6 sp manual with the targa (removable) hard top. Don't believe I had a problem with any of them.
Want a '15 - '18 C7 for around 45k and less than 20k miles.

Ill take a Shelby GT350 over this new vette.
Course I am a FORD and Mustang guy

Folks owned a couple when I was a teen a 71 454 auto(unfortunately) and a 79 silver anv addition that was a flat dog. 185 hp or some such.

Been in a couple of the prevoius gen 15-16 model yrs. nice but not my thing.

Mustangs are impractical enough even as a single guy and vettes are worse.

My dog would be clostrifobic in one. She has enough trouble in my stang.

I find  the 65k msrp hard to fathom as well we shale see.

you're right.....looks like a camero that's been channeled and stretched - doesn't look bad, just not corvettie
