Only thing I saw for me that I am concerned about was inside.

The seats look tight I'm 6.2 320 so I hope I can fit lol

The dam Viper I tried to sit in was a no go very little tight place for me lol.

Anyway chime in what you guy's think....

Unfortunately, if you try to squeeze into a C8, you're going to look like a monkey f***ing a football. The Corvette is small. I am 5'11" and ~190lbs. The C7 is just right for me. It holds me tight in all of the right places, but I don't feel cramped. If I were any bigger, I'd have trouble fighting my way into and out of the damn thing. Good luck to you, "Tiny".

I like it; But I don't love it. I feel it needs work at the rear end and quarters. It is definitely a hallmark for corvette, as it just could not best the Porsche 911 or GTR despite its best efforts. Now, everyone will be put on notice.

I like it. It looks good and its innovative. Seems like they got way more right then wrong. Only issue is how difficult it will be for us to work on a mid engine car. Nothing looks like it will be easy. Want a cam swap? That motors coming out for sure. I think we'll see more turboed and supercharged cars then anything

It looks to be a great car. Though, it's making me realize I'll never be a Vette guy. Clearly, they're appealing to the younger crowd, and going by the notion of selling a young person's car to the old men.

I expect most who like the C7 will take well to the C8. More than a Corvette, it looks like a C7 all jacked up on mountain dew.

I love it. I haven't been this excited about a new Corvette in a long time. I'm not 100% sold on the interior but for me, interior look is not a deciding factor in whether or not I can enjoy a car. Exterior looks and interior comfort are much more important to me.

A total game changer!

Guaranteed there's a lot of unhappy folks at Ford, MoPar, the Toyota Supra team and a few other manufacturers.

Thumbs down on the push button shifter. I didn't realize this until I saw close-ups of the interior. You might as well build a space ship then if you are eliminating one of the hallmarks of automotive taste.

I'll take this style of shifter over the traditional automatic stick all day long. Also, Drive and Reverse are toggle switches, not push button.

Yeah I think what they put in is probably better than a "classic" auto shifter. Not sure it's better than what some others use in DCT cars...

but at least it's not a stupid Dial like FCA loves to use.

Well I don't like it, even if it works well. It makes me think that something's missing. That is the way I am; Certain things I will expect from some cars.
