    Also to prove why they needed a nose like that. So it doesn't burst into flames.

    Announcing an overpriced, gaudy, limited edition version of a vehicle in Dubai? Not so weird "Yeah, we released the Bolt, BUT WE STILL LOVE YOU CRAZY OIL BARONS! DRAG RACE! FIRST PERSON TO THE LINE OF POOR PEOPLE WINS!"
    Get that weak shit off my track

    "... before the C8 goes mid-engine and DOHC"
    Is that just about official at this point, or are the test mules still for an idea/possibility only?

    I hope they're going to have new halo car above the Corvette, personally; something to really go after the Ford GT, Ferraris, Porsches, Laborghinis, etc

    That's what I was talking about. A real shame too.

    The performance credentials of the new Corvette ZR1 are indeed impressive, but its launch timing has screwed up the rollout of the mid-engine C8. The culprit was something having to do with the supercharger system (supplied by Eaton) and cooling, but it really doesn't matter at this point. The Corvette enthusiasts who just have to have the ZR1 will get one, because it's the last hurrah for the front engine C7 Corvette. But everyone else will have to wait for the C8 while Chevrolet operatives figure out what they're doing. But remember, it's not just the production C8 rollout that is being delayed, it also means that the C8.R GTLM racer will be late, too, which at this point is flat-out inexcusable.

    Note to Executives: estimates are ESTIMATES. #ffs

    No greater crime in Corporate America than slipping dates. Even physics & engineering breakthroughs must adhere to the timeline, don'tcha know??
