I don't know. When the CEO recently said the M/T wasn't available because it would require a big hole in the trans tunnel for a shifter to stick up through, I started to wonder how much more of what he has said was bullshit.
I don't think he even knows where the transmission and motor are nor that it would have been shifted via cables.
This car certainly has a great hype machine around it. I'm even excited and I do not generally care for General Motors (to put it mildly). I wonder how cheap the interior will be on this one. And I'd be surprised if the pricing stays in the 50's or 60's given what's already been reported about it.

Not sure what to think after seeing those 'vert pics. Hopefully, the new platform will attract a steady stream of buyers from a younger demographic, so the car has a future.
The C7 was over the top styling for me, or pretty close to it. I still love the first year C7 vert in lime rock green with the brownstone interior. But the more I think about C7/C8 design the more I'm attracted to the C6 and C5. The weakest styling point on those imo was the abrupt rear. The '03 anniversary 'vert was a nice looking car, tho.
hardtop vert C8 vette. big GT-like non-japanese MR2?
these cars have got me a with tough "semi-attainable dream cars" list and IDK what to go after now for my long term multi-year plan/planning ahead for my midlife crisis.
- C8 vette?
- any of the GTRs?
- Rotary powered car?
I was 50 when I brought The Frog into my life a year ago.
There were a few jabs about a mid-life crisis, naturally.
Mid-life? I hope so. I hope I get another 50 years.
Crisis? Ummm.... OK! If getting the fun-est car ever is a "crisis", can I have more crises, please?
