What do you guys think of the new C8 corvette? Is this the nicest body style that GM has produced for the corvette? Would you pick a C8 stingray or a C7 Z06 for the same price?

I'm not a corvette guy, but I can admire how well this thing launches in RWD. The engineering is definitely there. As for looks. I've seen a lot of journalists saying its GM going after ferrari, which I can kind of see. But I'll always prefer the older models.

would much rather have a C7 Z06. C8 is too new. If the C8 Z06 is out of your budget I'd go C7

love the look of the c8.  I personally think they successfully maintained some of the "vette" look even while completely refreshing the platform.  Can I break the rules and wait to buy a used C8 Z06?   If not, I'd still go C8.   I LOVE the C7 Z06, but I'd have to go C8.

Personally it was the way The corvette had to go to be able to keep up with the exotics! Front engine real wheel drive cars can only be so quick especially at the production costs they keep these cars at! The c8 is a huge change for Chevy but it has to happen!

I love the C8 as a sports car, but not a vette. Agreed that chevy had to make it mid engined cause they maxed out the front engine platform, but idk still not entirely sold on the C8. Absolutely no desire to get into a first year production corvette either...will have to wait & see what the C8 Z06 brings. Still prefer the C7, but you could say that I'm biased.
