Re: New 2020 Mid Engine Corvette Unveiled
I think it looks awesome. If some don't like it resembling a Lambo or Ferrari...I do!
When I saw it like 3 days ago I though it was a Lambo.
When you can mistake a Vetter for a Lambo, I think IT'S a GREAT THING!
Lambos have been the pinnacle of looks since the Countach 5000s for me.
Vettes were great and but not fast (quick really) enough until more recently.
I love the 3rd Gen Mako shark style but they were too slow. The C4 was boring without ground effects and wings and spoilers, C5 Boring but slightly better looking in stock form.
C6 a nice improvement in looks and quickness, C7 better in some ways in looks worse in others but nice, C8 same..some looks are better some are worse but it SCREAMS Look at me!!!
It is a shame no manual clutch option as some really like it.
Most will prefer the new trans once they get used to it.
The reason many of us bought stick is because we can really drive and can outrun an auto in a drag race. Now that autos will outrun a manual....most will want the extra couple of tenths.
I can't stand GM letting the Camaro and Vette rear end or taillights look the same! Blasphemy!!!
I really don't care where they put the engine. They will be electric motors eventually...SADLY!!
They have talked about it for decades. I lost a bit of interest when they put the trans in the middle or rear and not bolted to the engine like traditional.
I give Corvette GREAT credit though for doing what they ahve done and making a fast and fast track car with a PUSHROD V8.
I still don't like OHC as much and what when everyone says you have to use all the latest technology etc...they have been making smoking fast cars with normally aspirated pushrod V8s....JOB WELL DONE!!!
