    I ordered a c8 instead of a 2015 650s McLaren spyder. The c8 is cheaper and has a factory warranty. I would hav e to buy a warranty
    For 5k if I purchased the 650. As far as 60k cor the c8? Mine specced out at 100k.

    dear friends !!! you have bought a car from GENERAL MOTORS you will get a
    car with lots of mechanical problems and customer service??? A sad joke
    does not exist at all. And the GM management? They don't care at all.
    You should understand that your money went into the trash. It is very
    dangerous today to buy from GENERAL MOTORS!!!!!! 👎👎👎😬👎👎😬👎

    The 2020 Corvette IS NOT SOLD OUT.... GM HYPE. By Dec 2020 they will be sitting on the lots around the country.

    Total 2018 corvette production was 9,686. The quote from the plant manager in Bowling Green said that they were hiring a second shift for increased production. So, even if they double production, we are looking at 18,000 to 20,000 max.

    I was able to get mine ordered for 2020....but it took a day's search as allocations went quick. I ended up in NJ with a very friendly and accommodating dealership.
    What I loved about the process is the purchase is not based on your past record with Chevrolet as it was with Ford and their GT. Wasn't it pretty much invitation only to get on their list? The whole experience was done over two days.....eight hours total but it went quick.
    The closer one is to a major metro area, the better their chance of finding a dealer who has one or two spots available. Some color combos were so popular early so limits were placed on those. I got the Gold shade with black/gold leather interior. It was what I had in mind and not many had been ordered in that combo so it was approved.
    Pricing is NOT close to $60k. That goes unsaid. Put another $30k on that and you got your hands full.

      "Allocations" are a joke.. meaningless. With 2019 C7's languishing on their lots... ask a deal what his 'allocation' is for C7... hahaha... By Dec 2019, C8's will be coming in regular.

    If its true even if 3/4 of them pre sell that is got to be an embarrassing thing for other manufacturers considering this is basically a "base model".

      @mister Vang Wrong, it is a free market. Supply and demand. If it is priced too high people will not buy it and sales will go down.

    I'm not surprised to hear that the new C8 is almost sold out for the first model year. I would certainly believe that. This car is a new benchmark especially considering the price. It's a tour de force in design and engineering. Better yet, no hybrid electric motors to which other manufacturers are resorting. Surely, GM will offer a Z06 or Grand Sport model in the near future. But this current model is all the automobile anyone could want, need or desire. Nice work GM!

    No it’s not. Only first wave for the first three months is maxed out. Sold out implies that people could start selling their reservation voucher for profit. Anybody will be able to buy their Corvette within a few months after first phase.

    The dealership where i work is selling them at MSRP Only have two ordered for now. The builder and pricing is not out yet. GM will be starting up two shifts to make these cars. They will be hot for a while at that price.

    The C8 is a good car, but the dodge new charger angel coming out and there Hellephant engine making 1000hbp, dodge can now make a super car that’s even cheaper and faster than the C8 and Surpra What do you guys think?

  • Michael Melling

    Something just occurred to me ... of all the many C8 videos I've watched, I have heard anyone mention where the spare tire is located or if it even has one.

    • Erek K

      They haven't had spare tires for a long time. They come with runflats.

    Its not unexpected that it would have sold so well. Lets face it, there's nothing like it out there. The Toyota Supra is a total disappointment to all Toyota Enthusiasts because its' just a BMW and no one will convince me otherwise. It will sell to people who just want a reasonably priced sport car. This C8 is adequate until the Twin Turbo ZR1 arrive.

    i dont understand why car manufactures don't do this more often. most people who dream to own a lambo don't even know how much horsepower it has. build an exotic looking car with subpar performance and people will still buy for the looks and uniqueness.

    Can't wait until this car starts getting drive reviewed. Right now it's looks and price. Would be great to get a Chris Harris review although I don't know if he'd drive the C8.

    But yet the economy is in the shithole and were in the middle of a recession but yet trump is saying the economy is great but the average family are living check to check struggling to stay above water my job cut back on overtime but obviously there are a bunch of rich assholes out there lining up to spend there money on a sports car with nothing else better to do with there money MUST BE NICE 👍🏽 life is great for them I guess.

    All it means is Chevy has learned a lesson with prior year production and now has under projected either quantity and or price. Either way as a consumer trying to buy a first-year car like the C8 you're gonna have to be in a strong position to buy one.

  • Michael Lamborghini Lover

    This car is gonna be the kit car platform of the future. Bye Fiero. I think that the Corvettes gonna be an awesome car. I’m impressed with what they’ve done I think everybody else is too. I’m not a Corvette person but if I was ever going to get one this is what It would be.

    The market will quickly get saturated. Everyone ordering one now will lose their shirts in depreciation over the next couple of years. The more there are...the less value it has. Let's see where the pricing (w/options) actually ends up. Also...2021 with the new Z06 and new ZR1.

  • Rick Ely

    I wonder if it’s man power or parts that is limiting the production I could see 2500000 cars made and sold and at that price they need numbers to make up cost of development

  • The Truth About Facts

    This is the reason Ford should have given the gt500 a stick shift, to stand out and be different. The only car over 700 hp that starts at a good price and comes with a manual that i can think of is the hellcat. Correct me if you know of anything else. The zr1 does but it's $120,000+ and is not being made anymore.

    This car is just pure awesome & pretty much anyone who I know likes cars wants one myself included so it certainly doesn’t surprise me that they would be almost or are sold out. you figure in north america there are roughly 360 million canadians/americans easily enough potential buyers for the c8 being sold based on deposits
