If after a few years the cars prove to be somewhat reliable I will be looking at one for sure, maybe the GS when it comes out.
But then it will be the first year of the GS, what then? You may as well buy a 2019 manual GS. It's been built for 3+ years and tried and true.

Here they come

C8 is starting to ship from factory. So when people start to see C8ís curious to how many may make,the change from M2 or Bmw anything.
Seems like quite a machine for the money.

GS is usually just a widebody and some parts from the Z06 with the standard engine. It was more reliable on the C7 than the initial cars. Me? I wouldn't wait. I'd just get it and enjoy it now.

Yes like going out to buy a black suit and coming home with a yellow jacket and red Bermuda shorts. You'll certainly get attention and probably be able to run faster in the shorts.

If you didn't need useable back seats, there are quite a few options out there starting with the C8.

I think it is quite a machine for the money. Since they've gone midengine, I wouldn be surprised if the Vette demographics don't shift to a younger crowd. GM may have a home run... we'll see.

Agree. I mean I NEVER had the urge to read about or build a Corvette on the Chevrolet website, but I've already done that...twice. The styling is to extroverted for me and the lack of a MT is also basically a deal-breaker. But, damn, that much performance for that much money is insane.

And, the Z06 will have a new flat-plane-cranck twin turbo V-8....
