I'm getting signals that GM may have changed the launch order from what they did in C7. For C7 it was Stingray then Z06 (widebody and SC) then Grand Sport (widebody), but now it's looking like C8 might be Stingray (2020) then Grand Sport (2021, widebody with eAWD!!) then Z06 (2022 widebody with 5.5L FPC).

The "very soon" would be Grand Sport in 3rd or 4th quarter of 2020.
Ha. A little birdie (not you) told me exactly this as well. Very possible to get a GS first (perhaps with no more power and just aero/handling) and then Z06 later. So it could be north of two years for a Z06. I have a deposit on a C8 Z06 but if GM goes flat plane crank, I will cancel it and wait another year or so or just get a GS or Z51. Or GT500 or something else. There will likely be growing pains with an FPC higher displacement, higher horsepower engine and I don't wanna be the GM beta tester with a $100K+ car.

Very soon? The video is calling this a 2022 model, so that's what? A late 2021 debut, almost 2 years from now?

I'm sure people will enjoy kicking ass over the next two years in their GT500s, and that __also__ assumes Ford is sitting around twiddling their thumbs ...
The MY cars always come out the year before, probably it will come out early, so that means probably in July next year in about 18 months, maybe sooner I predict.

Yeah, that extra $200K buys some serious performance :D

Everyone hates Hennessey on here. So this video doesn't count. The GT500 won.

I just looked at the weight. The 720s is 1000lbs lighter. OMG. What a stupid race.

@lightrules

Oh yeah, hahaha, I was saying $300K [minus] a $100K for a CFTP GT500 = difference in price :)

Side note: I knew I should've gotten my 720s in 2019, NFW I'm spending another $15,000 for a 2020 :giggle:
