    Poor James had to film the C8 review at Petersen when the heat wave hit SoCal hence the canopy. I was never a Corvette fan but I'm very impressed with the C8. It hits close to home when he said the interior driver's seat is very fighter jet and driver focused resembling the MKIV Supra.

    I want one!! :drool:

    What a C8 would have looked like if the engine was still in the front.

    What a front engine c8 would actually look like (not a photoshop)...

    IMO they didn't change the c7's design language at all with the c8, they reused it so the big MR shift would feel like less of a drastic change from the last car. The front and rear treatments are so similar.

    Since you've mentioned the things that you didn't like about the C8 (you're a Corvette guy), can you please explain how the Supra won you over then?
