    I don't think so. I went and saw the one that was on tour. Pretty nice, but I think the rear end has way too much Camaro in it. I love the engine under glass, which they stole from Ferrari. I am bummed that it looks like the convertible doesn't have engine under glass. :-(

    Yeah, you have to admit that's pretty sweet.

    I read an online article about the C8 today. Between the better weight distribution of the mid-engine layout and the sequential manual, the base C8 does the 0-60 faster than the C7 ZR-1. (2.8 seconds!) The ZR-1 catches up and beats it in the quarter mile though of course.

    Pretty sweet car!

    Tests thus far rave about the C8.
    I agree on the rear end styling. Too busy!

    One of the articles I read sums it up nicely: the rear end has 17% too much Camaro in it. I would say it's more like 85% too much Camaro. It's definitely the worst looking part of the car. They could have done better. I expect you will see a re-design on that because absolutely nobody likes it.
