Default Does the c8 corvette make you reconsider..

I hang out on the Corvette boards as well and the question on there is now that the Vette is mid engine with a DCT with under 3 second 0-60 and under $60,000 will it make exotic car owners reconsider say a 580-2 that's 3 times more or will they continue to buy one for the name and not care for the other because it's a chevy? Will your mind change when the Z version has the DOHC twin turbo engine and optional electric AWD?

Also the second pic is a protoype. While they obviously didn't go with it, it's interesting to see how they almost used the Huracan's rear window vent idea and raise the lower vent up and made it functional.

It’s a great car and not just for the money although that makes very appealing, but my answer is still no. I wouldn’t mind one for daily use, but my prime time will always be with my Lamborghini.

C8 Corvette is beautiful and sporty. That is it.
Europe is the Motherland of Supercars. I perfectly understand it. My stance is to drive Gallardo or Huracan as a daily car.

A corvette isnt an exotic. While the specs are impressive, it isnt comparable to Lambo, Ferrari or McLaren. I dont see ownersof thesethree brands trading in for the c8. The fit and finish of the interior were not even close to the exotics. Perhaps this has improved with the c8 . I would be surprised if many Porsche owners switched to Corvette. They seem particularly loyal to their brand.

There is levels to everything life. A Lambo is a Lambo for a reason, its not just about price and performance. As nice as the new Corvette is, I am a fan and can't wait to see them hitting the streets, it just isn't and will never be a Lambo.

Looks cool, and even thought it's fast, after 6 months of it's release you will see it everyday. So it will just be another corvette driving down the street.
