I posted this in the other C8 thread, live photos of the Bronze from Car And Driver.

That color is awesome! I like non-traditional colors on sports cars

We’re obviously looking at the top trim levels in these pics, but I am astonished that you’ll be able to get one of these respectably optioned for under $70k. This is a disruptive offering. In terms of performance value for the dollar this car shames anything & everything currently being built. My plan to buy a new Camaro in 6 months just switched to buying a low mileage used C8 in 18-24 and it looks well worth the wait. GM has made the unobtainable attainable.

I have not seen the underside of the car in relations to space in front of the engine to the fire wall.
The time consuming or expensive price to swap a cam has been my biggest gripe about the LT engines (granted there isn't much to gripe about). The LS motors were EASY swaps.

I'd love to have the ZL1 package with mag ride and the 2LT trim.Then I'd get body color trim panels. (I don't like the black trim pieces on the side scoop.)

Orange with neutral interior and belts.

Again, comparing the prices to a C7, $15k on a base Stingray will put you into a well equipped Grand Sport or perhaps even a stripped down Z06 if you can find a deal.

GM nailed it with the price point. It isn't too far off from the current model and that was the biggest concern among the faithful.

Base 1LT = $59995, Z51=$5000, Magride=$1900, Performance exhaust=$1200, Competition seats=$2000, PDR=$1800.


$72K for a C8 with the track options you want. I said $75K.



Pretty great deal, if you are a gambler and willing to take a first year Chevrolet that is 98% new content. I'd wait at least two years, personally.

I could be wrong but I think you have to have at least a 2LT to be able to get the competition seats.

Yep, I stand corrected. I read across and somehow shifted up 1 line to GT2 seats

Happy that the C8 LT1 is $69,998 here in Canada.
That's approx $53K in USD.
