Might be time to go

Hey guys and girls, I was wondering if I could get your opinions. I love my Camaro and it's power (650whp) and sound but I have an opportunity to build a C8 for next year (2022 model). I love the look of the new vette and the mid engine but haven't got to try out the different seats options to know how comfy/uncomfortable they might be. Wife also loves the new vette in Orange but they are changing that color and don't know what it looks like in person (just the pictures).

Basically what i'm asking is if you could get a new vette, is it worth it to part ways with the Camaro with those unknowns of the color and seats. Thanks

JMO, I would say yes. You have a fairly modified Camaro with no warranty. I also believe you will step up a class in performance. My big problem and reason I bought a ZLE was the cockpit on the Vette was uncomfortable to me(felt cramped)and I also really liked aggressive style of the ZLE.

If you have the cash go for it. If you have lots of cash keep the Camaro and buy the Vette.��

Ya I would definitely like to sit inside a C8 with the GT2 seats to see if they comfortable but there are none around me that aren't sold customer cars.

Ditto, at least temporarily if you can swing it. Then decide later which one you want to sell.

Those c8’s are a work of art and the mods are already making them street beasts. CSP does a twin turbo kit that keeps factory cats and makes it 600whp with nothing else down to it.

Yes no doubt I would move to the C8. I am sad to say but the Camaro is not going to make it. I am going to be ordering a C8 shortly.

Coupe, 2LT, Red Mist, Natural Napa Leather, GT2 seats, 5-spoke carbon flash wheels, performance exhaust, front lift, edge red calipers, engine appearance, carbon flash exterior, body colored roof panel package w/ transparent roof, high wing spoiler.
