    Is it realistic that you can walk into a Chevy dealer and walk out with a mid engine, sub 3 second 0-60 car for $60k?

    If thatís the case, fuck yeah - at a quick glance it looks like a Ferrari 488. This is a legit super car for the price of options on a Italian car.

    Okay, the interior and build quality will be shit and it has the prestige of a Pontiac compared to Euro supercars but I canít wait to see this thing on a track with the standard import super cars. And Iíll say again that it looks amazing.

    And FWIW, Iím the dude whoís first lottery winning purchase will be a mid engine Ferrari.

    No. A 2LT trim will probably be 70-75k. They will sell loaded up cars first.

    Which leads me to the 76k GT500 with 265 more hp and a manual trans.

    Wonder what the used market for C7 is going to do? Kerbeck Chevy in Atlantic City is selling new LT-1 coupes for $44,800.

    It is if you're in the market for a C7, right? I think we're going to see some increasingly great deals as we move toward release day of the C8.

    Mustang GT makes sense from a speed and performance standpoint.. Vette will still be more of a chick magnet. Whenever I'm riding around in a Vette there always seems to be someone in a Mustang that wants to race. My friend usually rolls down the window and says "I only race Vettes".
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Mustang GT is an absurdly good value. However, I'm not sure about which is more of a "chick magnet." Might be kind of a draw. My wife had a Mustang GT when I met her and she's still a big Mustang fan. Funny because I'm the Corvette fan but she thinks they're mostly for retirees or guys going through a mid-life crisis. Hopefully I can change her mind someday on that, but I fear that by the time I finally buy one I will indeed be in that demographic, kind of reinforcing her point. Doh!

    You're right not to race Mustangs, though. Seen too many videos of them crashing into the very car they're racing. Or mowing over pedestrians. I think they're a hoot to drive, but WAAAAAY too many people don't know how to drive them at all. Haha.

    Top of the line pickup with taxes about $90k

    $60k is the entry level no frills LS1 Vette. My guess is a top of the line Z06 or ZR-1 tpe will be in the $150k range.

    Dealer here in town still has two new 2017's sitting on the floor he can't move. Couldn't get any 2018 or later allocations until they moved. Only thing he can do is take special orders for newer units.

    Vettes jumped the shark for friends and family who owned them. Uncle traded his in on a Mustang Shelby then a 450 SL then got too old to enjoy fun cars. Godfather's daughter wrecked his 78 Indy Pace Car. That was the first Vette I drove and was pretty cool having just gotten my license. Best friend sold his 90 something Vette when he got married... to a girl we both knew way back before he had nice cars.. She was driving an Olds 442 at the time. That 90s Vette drive really nice and seemed pretty smooth at 150mph. Don't think it had much beyond that though.

    Am I justified being extremely bummed with the lack of a standard trans offering? Paddle shifters are stupid. I know the tech associated with new autos produces a quicker car but the experience is completely lost to me. Not to mention your average Vette buyer is not going to notice any marginal performance gains from an auto, let alone know what to do with all the HP/torque.

    Yeah, I'm with ya. While I totally understand the decision from a business and technical aspect, it just kind of pains me that there's no manual option (for now). But sheesh, at the price point it's kind of tough to be too critical.

    If they ever offer it with a manual, that's the one I'll want. Even if it means a full second slower 0-60 or inferior track times. It'll still be totally quick enough but even MORE of a good time IMO. Nothing quite like a hard downshift on the highway, working that clutch pedal, breaking the rear loose, then rocketing off.

    What drives me nuts about many automatics I've driven, no matter HOW good they are is that when push comes to shove and you wanna get really wild, the car be like:

    Nothing screams chick magnet more than two dudes driving around in a Corvette.
