The next-generation, mid-engine Corvette C8 will be officially revealed at an event July 18.
C7's are stagnant on the lots. May have to upgrade on the cheap when this thing drops. Danger is I might test drive one...

$60K, ok. But you know darn well the dealers will mark this up big time.
Depends on the dealer and how soon you buy after the car hits the market. I know plenty of dealers that never sell above MSRP. The only thing that will keep the price above MSRP is the car's availability and demand. The current generation of the Ford Raptor, for instance, has been on the market since 2017. However, in several markets (like Denver) it still demands MSRP or higher. But I found it in OKC for almost $10K below sticker.

Dealer markup is only for people that are dumb enough to pay it.

Thanks for clarifying that.

I think the new Vette looks great. Shouldn't be long before I see a bunch or them rolling around here. There's a filthy amount of money in and around where we live.

I'd love to own one, but, probably be a while before I'd be in position to buy one.

I'm more of a Cadillac fan though. One of these days I'd love a CTS-V. Won't be able to afford that anytime soon either. Meh.

As a Toyota fan, I'm very happy for Chevy. They nailed this thing, and I can't wait to see them blowing up exotics in the near future. The design and engine platform, combined with price are unbelievable! I wish I could say the same for the Toyo/BMW Supra lovechild.

The reviews are coming out and the new Vette is looking to be a good as it looks:

Seems the only complaint people have is the oversteering.
This car seriously has me reconsidering the purchase of a Jeep Gladiator. I may have to hold on to my Wrangler and buy a used Vette in a couple years.
