The GT500 will crush the C8.Man this thread title is misleading.
Im no GM fan but lets be honest EVERYTHING under 100k just got crushed by the C8.
That being said if people can really get into these for under 70K yes I know GM claims itlo be under 60K it will be swinging hard at cars well into the 6 figure range.
The hell with comparing it to a GT350 the biggest issue Ford has now is they waited too damn long for the GT500 and the C8 will likely cost less and dance circles around it.
Who wants a GT500 with 2015 headlights ROFL when you could have a nearly 500hp mid engine C8 Vette.
Answer: No one with half a brain that cares what each cost.
The GT500 surely may not be compareable on paper but if anyone thinks the C8 wont steal GT350 AND GT500 sales from Ford needs to go have their head checked.
The C8 will be a game changer at its price point period.
And even though I think the new Camaros and GM Pickups are absolutely vomit worthy the C8 looks Fanfappingtastic!! Especially in white!
GM just blew up the entire sports car segment. Yes Ill include 2 seaters and 4 seaters and everything under 100k.
Remember this is the base C8. Wait until the Grand Sport, Z06, and ZR1 versions come out.
Ill go out on a limb right now and say GM will be swinging at McLaren with the ZR1 C8 or even higher if it gets a hybrid AWD version.
Im not even nut hugging here this is a real honest opinion IMO.
Fords fucked and again took at least 5 years too long to release a GT500.
You are right about the next Corvette models coming in the next few years though. They are going to be great.
Oh one more thing. Ford is not fxxxxx.
