    Op was asking for below $50k cars that can go 3sec 0-60 stock. I gave him two.
    As for panty expositions try the op room, I mean from his bachelor pad days.

    The C8 should be interesting. Until we see some actual track runs, it is hard too get excited. Chevy seems to fall short in every attempt, so while I expect it to be good, I really dont expect it to be great.
    That said, I also think Ford is completely lackluster lately. Dodge has their head up their ass with the Hellcat fever, but who can blame them; if there is a demand, build it.
    This is a welcome change though, the trend has been to throw more power into everything lately. I am somewhat turned off to the American car scene right now.

    My guess though, the base model will be a good performer, low 7:10's on the ring. The Z06, a clean break into 6's... god I hope so anyway... in reality they will land a 7:05 and claim it has more but the tires... No really, I want to see a 6:59 from the Z06.

    I didn't make it through all of the thread, but this car isn't about drag racing. The weight balance, center of gravity, and handling will be dramatically different from a C7 Corvette, Camaro ZL1, or GT500. C7 Grand Sports are a tick slower than my ZL1 on a proper road course. The C8 should be a whole different ball game. If you order it with the track goodies, then it will be $80-90k.

    Chevy falls short in every attempt at what? The Corvette has been outstanding for a long time now. Since the Camaro came back it has also done very well especially the 1LE and ZL1 variants. The Mustang is also very capable with the GT350/R cars. The only real complaint would be pricing and the delay of the latest GT500. 400, 500, 600, and 700 hp factory cars that can also handle yeah the American car scene is trash.

    No shit. Corvette has been the bench mark of performance unequivocally since at least the C5, if not C4...

    The Camaro continues to trounce the Mustang, it's short combings being styling, practicality and price.

    Also, let's not forget Ford has no answer to the Cadillac V-series.

    If this was a Lamborghini being sold at $150k, ya'll would be losing your shit. People are just bitter.

    The Corvette is the only Chevy I really care about. This one checks all the boxes, and I hope to buy one in a few years. Outstanding by Chevy is my initial impression. I hope the performance is on par with the looks!

    Delusional.

    Also, it took Ford 7-8 years to come out with something that barely edges out a car with 2006 tech and yet somehow struggle to run bottom 11's, high 10's stock.

    Hold this L

    I like how they moved the exhaust points from the center to the sides.

    It is, put the option you want and its 75k.

    Sure its available, but do you really want a total base car?

    Dare I say that the rear end is growing on me with that wing...
    The base Raptor MSRPs at ~$55K (or at least did in '18) and mine was $75K after TTL. So whats the problem?

    For me when I went through the config the 1LT with Z51 and tall wing will be plenty, even the 1LT has more features than I'll ever use. With discounts its still going to be laughably 'affordable'. I will be holding out to see if a Grand sport comes along soon though.

    My last performance cars were a gen 2 viper and a terminator so maybe I am just VERY easy to please lol

    So to get 495hp you need the Z51 package. This car with all its options Will easily bring $70k plus. Carbon pieces will not be cheap and that bigger wing. Rather have my Shelby for $80k and get most of that plus 760hp

    I also just have inclination that this Z51 is going to be almost double in price over a c7 version, just a guess imo

    The Z51 on the C7 is a $5K option. Some of the upgrades on the C7 are standard on the C8. You really think it’s going to double the cost to add less?

    Base gets 495hp, the difference is the tire. Base tire is a weak all season. Even the Z51 tire is just a pilot sport 4s, throw a set of cup 2's on a base and itll be a very strong runner. Also, the Z51 package wont be 10k. Dont forget this is a corvette, pretty standard 5k discounts so likely the Z51 will be sold in the low 60's
