Jalopnik said that Chevy said that this all-american supercar will do 194 mph. Jesus f#$king christ.
By the way, the under 60K price is $59,995, though we all expected that.

So do you think the performance of the Corvette able to compete with the GT3 RS.

GT3 RS probably not the target competition for this (the base C8). But something like Nissan GT-R definitely. In US market C8 will be the price/performance king, with nothing close to it.

Until my japanese boys come out with the R36 GT-R. If it ever comes out. Thanks a lot, Carlos Ghosn

I like the gtr but honestly imo it’s overrated as a bargain super car. I think the z06 has always been more of a bargain. Way more power and better power to weight ratio. And it’s cheaper. The gtr is faster in a straight line from 0mph but when traction for launching isn’t an issue the z06 is typically faster and at least as good on a track. And it’s cheaper. Gtr starts at $113k now! The z06 even with z07 package I think is below $100k and the c8 z06 will most likely be under $100k too. I doubt Nissan can top that bargain. If an r36 gtr comes out it won’t be below $120k. That’s way too much. I’ve always loved the gtr but it’s dead imo with the c8 having mid engine grip. I cannot see a good reason to get one over a z06

Yeah, they're saying 150-200K for the R36, probably. And it's probably not even gonna be a hybrid, which even the corvette has coming. I guess that I like it because I'm a weaboo when it comes to cars.

Corvette is a Lateral acceleration exceeds 1G, but do not know the exact highest numerical value.

FastestLaps  6d ago

Any car can exceed 100G lateral acceleration, if you pull out in front of a speeding semi truck. When you say "highest value", you first have to qualify that with the interval of time over which you measure the Gs.

Automotive press do this over a skid pad circle and Gs are sustainable indefinitely. So this measure is not about "maximum G value", but about "maximum sustainable G value".

How do you guys predict the c8 z06 will do against the 720s?

My prediction is that even though the z06 will be mid engine and probably have around 700hp and a dual clutch transmission like the 720s, it still wont beat or even match it because of power to weight ratio

agree or do you think chevy can maybe pull it off?

some thoughts and rumors:

  • the interior is cheesy from the 90's

  • the rear is kind of meh with the squarish exhaust tips from borla style ?

  • for 60k this will steal the 4-pot cocskter and g-ayman sales big time, let alone the overpriced junk vw-992 lol which will be the beginning of death of the rebadged vw hunchback-911

  • next thing we'll hear from the ass bag ferrari haters that chevy was first to do mid-engine cars with a v8 :)

rumor has it the z06 will be getting the following upgrades:

  • twin turbo
  • after decades of stupidity and cheapness the have finally seen the light and the cylinder head will be converted to dohc instead of ohv
  • no word on manual yet, but if it gets an optional manual it will be the end of vw-911 and their bs overpriced junk gt cars that shares parts from vw h-back grocery getter

if the last part is true with a manual transmission, i might get one too and have to live with that cheesy interior which i might use a duct tape to cover the screen and nonsense buttons. but i hope the z06 gets its interior stripped out without all the jukebox entertainment and dj buttons.

3373 is the dry weight of this car. The curb weight is going to be closer to 3600 lb.

American Ferrari.

But they should have called it something different (Corvair?) It's not a Corvette, it's entirely different.
