Default [Mega grain of salt rumor] C8 Vette to cost $169,900

Now, this is nothing more than a forum discussion from a guy who claims to have see the C8, etc. But still, its worth talking about.

https://www.corvetteforum.com/articl...-hefty-169900

Quote:
It’s safe to say that no car in recent history has been more hyped up and talked about than the forthcoming C8 Corvette. But that’s what happens when you’re allegedly taking an American icon and changing the entire drivetrain layout. Thus, we’ve been awash with more rumors and conjecture than usual in regards to Chevy’s radical new Corvette. The latest of which popped up right here at Corvette Forum recently. And it’s safe to say that you probably won’t like it.

Quote:
“$169,900 is a go,” said Zerv02. “If you’re in the under 100k camp, you will be disappointed. Let the madness ensue.”
Now, if you’re a regular around these parts, you already know that this is the same member who allegedly saw the C8 Corvette interior with his own eyes. Then, he shared a sketch and some additional info about it with us. This claim, however, is more than a little shocking. Especially for those who believe the Corvette will continue its position as a value-priced supercar.
Quote:
Others, including Corvette ED, don’t necessarily see a problem with it. That is, of course, if this is the price of the range-topping version with world-beating performance.

Quote:
“For the top-of-the-line 1,000 hp car, that price would be good. I see the base mid-engine car having a starting price of $65,000.”

I can see that, especially with all the new tech and body. If that's the fastest highest spec'd out model, I kinda see that as a bargain IMO. It's not just a leaf spring, pushrod simple car, it should be much more refined as a super car.

lol at base C8 vette being 66k. GM wants this thing to be a halo car. So you probably won't see something like a base Stingray in terms of price.

If anything the base model would probably be just over 70k.

Base C7 is 55k, ultimate ZR1 is nearer to 140k. So if its 170k is the rumored C8 price assuming its top tier package.

That said, I wonder if pricing the car that high might be shooting themselves in the foot.

Seems legit for the first mid engine platform.
Pictures in the article show a real sweet looking ride imo.

I could see that being the price for a loaded out, higher performance model. Iirc there were rumors of a 5.0 (?) liter engine option on top of the 4.4L engine that we already know exists. I’d imagine if they actually really want to sell these things they have to get the super base model at least into the $70k range ($79,999 msrp). Otherwise I have little doubt that corvette will become two models, with a F/R and a M/R drivetrain layout.

$170,000. LOL. Dealers will then mark them up to near $200k and then it will become the white elephant corvette of the 1990ís, the ZR-1.

I canít imagine most people who spend $150K and higher on a car think about buying a Chevy first. I would imagine they are thinking Porscheís and Ferraris etc etc.

Not that any of that matters to me.

I hope it looks good when it officially comes out.

I'd rather have it depreciate like a Mercedes. Those things fall like a rock.

i mean... they're likely similar.

only new vehicles that hold their value are wranglers, diesel trucks, and tacomas.

Iíve never understood the Wrangler prices..... nearly 40k for a vehicle without power windows and locks, and most everything is manually operated inside.

Want some nice features? That will be 50k

Blows my mind.

I mean... 48k for what a new rubicon has, fully loaded, is a fuck ton of vehicle.
