Only $7500 for a fully-automatic top; that appeals to me! (Plus the base price of the Corvette).

... Good looking car. And I am not a fan of the Corvette per se, but the convertible looks extra nice with the top down. ...  

I'm not a convertible guy, but this looks awesome.

The entire car, superb.

Are you going for the Convertible instead?

I am having trouble understanding the difference between the removable top and this. Is it just the fact that you don't have to handle the former and have to stow it away?

Yes, I think the main differences are you don't have to handle the top,

you can lower it in 16 seconds at speeds to 30 mph, you don't have the large backlight over the engine, you don't have to spend money putting fancy paint or carbon on the engine, there's nothing to clutter up the rear trunk, the central rear window goes u...

But the open top would also have an impact (assume minor as reinforcements should have been added) on the stiffness of the vehicle allowing more longitudinal torque. Most drivers will never notice the difference but if your driving the car to the limits, ... 

Yes, that’s certainly true for most cars

But for many years almost all Corvettes have had “open tops” because most models have removable top center panels. One of the reasons the 2020 car doesn’t have a manual shift is they used the center tunnel as a structural member and weren’t willing to put... 

Central tunnel

The central tunnel indeed is a major factor in determining stiffness of a car. You’re spot on. But somehow I find it hard to belief that a guy who’s been in automotive industry for so long and who is very much into, forgive the word, muscle cars, won’t oc...

is what you have there. Good trick in a mid engine car. I wonder what the weight penalty is... then again, with a V8 who cares! Some kind of sky-view capability is a major plus to me.

It no longer looks like a Corvette... not at all... in any way... whatsoever... it has entirely lost it's design DNA. It wants to be Italian. Sad, as Trump would say lol. The design is wannabe to my eyes. I owned a '99. When the lights flipped up and the ... 

I grew up in Detroit and every Corvette came with this kind of hype..

Wait 2 years and these will be $10-15k off sticker like EVERY Corvette is shortly after introduction. My opinion—-I personally think this latest Corvette is a miserable looking thing. Didn’t care for the C7 either. I thought the C5 or C6 was probably the ...
