lol i wasn't.

I was late to the corvette party 20 years ago, but that was also around the time i had just gotten my license. So maybe just in time?

Corvettes have always been the best value for performance. Stunning looks, incredible supercar performance, very low price point.

I am very impressed at how GM evolved the corvette this far. It's like watching your kid graduate college

I can't wait to get my C8Z!!!

Placed my 2 grand deposit online with Ciocca Corvette today shortly after the 12 noon open. Hoping to drive off with a MY2024 sometime in 2023.

IMO they took the front engine layout about as far as they could. As a long time Corvette owner I'm more than pleased with its evolutional progression. I can think of no other brand that could have pulled this off and maintained such competitive performance to price ratio.........
Please don't mistake the corvette DNA to being front engine or necessarily a bad thing. I was purely meaning the overall design of everything, down to the intake manifold, looks very F360/430 ish, although highly functional.

C8 Z06 Engine - LT6

I thought this vid was pretty good at detailing some of the more interesting aspects of the new C8 Z06 LT6 engine. It's a short watch but informative.
