I like it. In fact, I really like it. Whether the car appeals to you or not, I think that you should consider the great accomplishments of the GM engineers. They have built a technologically sophisticated high performance car at an amazingly attractive price, and I think that it is likely to be well-received in the marketplace. I know many Corvette owners who have been waiting for a mid-engine model for several years, and they will buy one. I suspect that some Ferrari and Lamborghini buyers will also become Corvette converts, and I won't be surprised if this car even appeals to sub-50 year old buyers. Remember back in the '60s and '70's when guys in their twenties actually bought Corvettes? I think that GM has a shot at winning a younger audience with this car. I have studied Corvettes for several years, beginning with the C4 from the mid-1980's. I'd never buy an early C4, but as I learned more about each particular model year I was amazed at the consistent improvements that were made. The same was true for the C5, C6, and C7, and the Corvette has evolved in to a great car. Doubters may be basing their opinions on memories of cars that were built 30 or 40 years ago. Spend some time in a 2014-2019 C7, and I think you will be convinced that Chevy has done a great job recently. As good as the C7 is, I'm betting that this new C8 is a huge leap forward. I get the idea that fans of the traditional front engine Vette are upset. It's a shame that Chevy can't offer more than one Corvette model, like Porsche does. If they continued the C7, they probably could have priced the C8 $20,000 higher and it still would have sold very well.
