No one is going to do that outside the drag strip

    The rear looks like it was bought on Ebay, but the front and side are great imo
    Fastest dude on the forum that ran his 2014 stingray bone stock with the auto was i think 11.5.

    With more power, and what? 30lbs heavier? Through a proper auto (DCT), with the weight in the back now for more traction? 3 second or even a bit quicker is doable.

    The C7Z/ZR were able to attain 2.8 or 2.9s 0-60 times through the auto because of torque multiplication. But it was using a torque converter.

    So i think they'll be just fine with the DCT. And it's only the base model lol.

    I love this so much LOL

    I'm also 100% certain that the wording for the sub 3sec 0-60 times they are claiming is deceptive, and they are actually talking about it being capable of those times in z06/zr1 trim. It's heavier than the c7, no way the base or z51 trim is capable.
    nah I'm almost certain that time is the Z51 package which is prob gunna be like 5-7k add-on. They mentioned that 1st gear is aggressive af, plus Z51 has a eLSD and some kind of traction management thing, it's got sticky summer tires and then there's the weight all over the rear wheel to help them dig in.

    Those options are for everything besides power lol.

    So i guess if you want CF bits, red seatbelts and comp seats to get you 0-60 in under 3 seconds with the stock LT2, then yeah i guess click that option LMAO.

    C8Z is going to annihilate lol.

    Yup. I guess people are not up to the times where computers do all the work. That's why it can probably do 0-60 under 3 seconds with barely 500hp.

    I like everything about the C8 - except the back end. It looks like a Shrek sat on the rear. But, not a deal killer. The steering wheel is finally not making me rage. I like it and the interior.


    Waiting for the Grand Sport. The Zo6 might be faster, but the GS gets the girls.

    Almost certain the C8 isn't getting a useless "grand sport" model.

    I think there's only going to be 4 versions.

    Stingray
    Stingray w/Z51
    z06
    zora, the holy grail.

    And why would a GS get girls but not a z06? A GS is just a z06 wannabe without the power.

    You guys know why I think they priced the car so low? I think it was because of the Cadillac ELR, which is the nicest fkn cadillac ever made imo. That car failed because people believed it was priced too high. Mark Reuss was overseeing the ELRs program and he learnt from that shiz.

    Well he may have learned but the ELR failed because it looks like an ELR. Jesus, who did that? The same guy as the c8? Someone is swinging for redemption.

    yeah that's def a typo, would be all over vette forums by now if that was scam marketing and I'm not seeing a peep about it anywhere. Plus the wording lends it self to a typo, calling it a "optional package"

    What? I can't believe you said that. The ELR is one of my favorite cars of all time and I don't even like the way Cadillacs look. I think you haven't seen them in person enough. They actually look really exotic. Also peoples perception of it being closely related with the volt skewed their view.

    From that road and track article posted above:

    "But the dual-clutch allows for the hypercar-like acceleration we mentioned—Chevy boasts that the new 'Vette has a super-low first gear and close ratios between gears two through six for ultimate acceleration. An electronic limited-slip differential and launch control further boost traction and acceleration."

    They don't. And I don't know why he's hung up about a few tenths of a second. Base model C8 vette 0-60mph is 3.xx seconds and performance trim Z06/ZR1 0-60mph is 2.xx.

    He's also only thinking about OEM stock performance numbers as if this new generation vette will never be modified by anyone, ever.

    Not trying to derail the thread but STEEDA has a 10r80 trans natural aspirated mustang with a stock engine.

    Only real power adder is a ported cobra jet intake manifold. The rest are supporting modifications: C85 gas, tuned ECU, carbon fiber driveshaft, transbrake, exhaust, torque converter, sticky tires, full drag suspension. Some weight reduction, rear seat delete I think but that's mostly it. Car "only" makes 400ish horsepower to the wheels and runs low 10's @ 130+ MPH in the 1/4 mile.

    So, after seeing the straight on view of the rear of the car, I agree that it looks horrible. It looks like a 5 year old built it from a set of Legos. Just stacking bits on top of eachother. Not that I'm getting one, but for those that do I hope there are aftermarket options to fix the looks of it.

    yeah I'll give them a pass on the vents cause they're cooling related for that mid engine and cooling>aesthetics. The tailights are typical chevy bullchit and the square pipes are stupid too, I'd imagine aftermarket will be taking care of that quickly.

    And that Z51 wing is ugly af, car looks way better without it

    These are pre-production models though so i expect some little fine tuning here and there for the cosmetics. Pretty sure the exhaust tips won't be square lol. I hope not.

    Either way, still can't wait!!!

    I'm not a big fan of the rear either, but to be fair, the lighting in that photo is bad. Better shot of the rear below.

    Chevy has 6 variations of wheels to choose from. They are ok, but I am looking forward to seeing some aftermarket wheels/rims.
