counterpoint to your counter point: There are more than a handfull of 1200+ hp C6's and same for C7's running up and down Woodward in Metro Detroit on and given Friday and Saturday. Those guys are running minimum $5000 bets on the streets.
Wait a few weeks, it will be back to bashing them and bitching about the Boomer owners before you know it.
The C6 really was the civic of the vette lineup. Those things were and still are everywhere. But i’m okay with this being just as common. They need to sell enough so GM can justify all the ZO’s and ZR’s and maybe even slap a manual transmission in there.
First the website crashes...then the car over heats and goes into limp mode.
According to the configurator, the performance exhaust and intake from the P51 package adds 495 horsepower. That brings the total up to 990hp, not too shabby, hahaha
I would take a rapid blue Z51 w/ black interior
Go rent a base C7 from Hertz or Avis, that’s exactly what the interior of the base model for the C8 will feel like.
Makes me wonder what the Z06 is going to bring.
They’re going to build 35-40K of these a year (as they did with the C7), that type of volume let’s you amortize a lot of design costs...
Ahahaha! I’d hate to work at a Chevy store tomorrow. 5000 phone pops for a $60k unicorn.
Supply and demand, baby. Why should a dealer let some chump off the street flip it for $75k?
GM made dealers keep ordering C7's so they would be allowed allocations of the new C8.
Can you just imagine all the meetings at Chevy when the Supra became official? The maniacal laughter must have been deafening when they realized they were gonna punch that in the face right out of the gate. Also, RIP modern NSX
And way less torque.
Sir, it comes in Zeus Bronze Metallic, which is fancy brown:
Why not? the 2017 991 GT3 is already doing it in 3 seconds in a 500hp NA engine.
True. So does that leave any reason to buy a Supra in 6 months?
$10k more than a Supra’s MSRP.
Probably more like $10k less than a Supra.
So the most basic version in white will be $59,999.95. It will exist only as an online config and exactly zero dealerships will actually ever order one.
Or put another way: $10k more than a Supra. And this has a removable roof.
