After the initial year or two, the majority of Vettes sold are base models with basic spec. They may not sell for $60k, but a lot will sell for less than $70k.LOL true...maybe our American forum members can enlighten us on this?
C8 prices are coming down.Well, considering they're all hovering around $100K in the CPO/used market, those who purchased any of them new for under that should be very lucky.
Not that they're worth that, but it appears that the market has driven (pun intended) the prices up drastically from the "from under $60k" that Chevrolet initially advertised.
While the C8 is a huge leap and technological achievement by GM, I'd be swinging by the Porsche dealerships, not Chevy at that price point, regardless of its performance numbers.
The seating position is a big deal between a mid or rear engine Porsche and a C5-C7 series Vette."It's nice to have choices."
Porsche is great. It's crazy that you can actually double the MSRP with the amount of packages and options they offer. You have to exercise a lot of restrain.
I was never a Corvette fan to begin with. However, I do think they're fantastic performance cars, especially for the money. It's like motorcycles - I really want to WANT to have one, but it's just not for me.
I do prefer the C7 to the C8. I know that's backwards thinking in terms of technology and performance, but I'm more partial to its GT-eske long nose/rear cab heritage looks. Especially when paired up with the 7-speed rev-matching manual.
We'll soon see more C8s than Supras on the road, if not already, and that makes the Supra a bit more special, to me at least.
I'll probably get chastised for this, but I'd take my $70-$75K to the Audi RS5 before a C8.
Nailed it!2) You can't actually buy the C8 for $60k. Real world prices are closer to $100k from what I'm seeing. If the C8 was actually $60k it would be a closer race, but at $100k it's a no-brainer. Plus it's a Chevy, and I've never been impressed with the build quality of Chevys.
