I need the back seat. If you want a two seater get a corvette. My kids need a place to sit.

The 370Z is a much smaller vehicle with a much smaller top. There's a lot less room required to store it. The sort of changes suggested for shortening the body, removing the rear seat, etc. would make it pretty much impossible to store the top without completely losing the trunk. Anything else and all you're doing is making a smaller version of the 'vette.

Personally, I disagree. I bought a Camaro because the Corvette is lower slung than what I want. I couldn't care less about the back seat for people...

An interior that rivals at least the 3/4 Series BMW or C Class Mercedes as far as materials and fit and finish. Better styling. Lower beltline.

But, wishing for all of that is probably a waste of time with GM.

That is what the Cadillac ATS is for - BMW, Audi, M-B are all luxury makers - Chevy is more like Dodge, Ford, or toyota.

I don't think they can build what I really want anymore. V8 is a must, less tech crap, much more comfy interior space (I'm 6'4" 260 lbs), keep it around 3600 lbs. Keep the base V8 option close to $30k. Bonus for making it easy to do a cam swap again.

I loved my 370z too, and my 350z. I still miss that car. I had been toying with the idea of getting a new Z (if it is ever released) but I got into a Camaro while I continue to wait

Chevy is trying to make the Corvette something that is not... basically an off-brand European sports car. It is not a Ferrari or McLaren, it certainly isn't exotic, but it is trying to be. The Corvette was a car with a long line of heritage and presented something unique.. Chevy killed most of that.
C8 outsold Camaro last quarter....I think its doing just fine lol

On the other hand, that's not great for the Camaro

I'm not sure on the new Z yet. Sometimes when looking at pics, I feel it's a little bland. I do like the new tech, though. I'll have to see it in person. I'm hoping they come-out with a Nismo version soon too.

The Camaro outsold the Corvette for the year 2020, not that I care anyway. I don't purchase vehicles based off of how they are "doing" in the market, nor did I say anything about sales. I was saying the Corvette is no longer a Corvette

I agree. It could be one of those cars that you have to see in person to appreciate too. I felt the 370z was like that to some degree. You just don't get the real feel of the body lines by looking at photos. I always got numerous compliments and comments on that car; the Camaro gets them as well. The color probably helps as they are both yellow.

And I was just saying that based on the sales despite your feelings it seems the new strategy with corvette seem to be doing just fine.

Also yes Camaro outsold Corvette for the year by an impressive 8k cars....quite the slide from when it used to outsell corvette by 30K

What constitutes "sold"? I'd be willing to bet that most of the Corvettes that qualify as sold during Q4 were 2020 models that were FINALLY being delivered after a ridiculous wait.

And comparing it to a car that had no inventory AND sells in low quantities?

Might as well just call that bundled up misuse of 'facts' NEWS.
