    54:12 - Jay Leno calls the 500 mile power reduction during break in feature, a pre production issue for 4th time and the engineer just gives up and crosses his arms.

    Love the side and front of the C8............but the rear? Looks way too much like a Camaro.

    Nice car. Ugly color. I also really liked the previous Ray. I hope many were made. Also I wonder if those side scoops reduce too much interior comfort.

    I love leno. I love this new vette more than the first time I fell in love with them when I was about 8 years old and a c2 drove down my street. Maybe I love this one more due to the frustration of loving them for 50 years, never being able to afford one and now possibly being in a place where I can soon.

    How many will you sell in Australia - depends what you price it as. If its keenly priced I could easily see you sell 1000+ in the first year, if you price it at 150K+ then maybe not as many. Holden couldn't even sell 500 Camaros and they were 92K. Ford sold thousands of Mustangs and they were 60-65k.

    Corvette's impressive $59,995 starting price is only good for the first year, and unless it goes up by $20,000, Chevrolet will continue to lose money on low-trim cars, a senior GM source told

    It looks like a Pink Cockroach and the resale value is gong to be crap... Unless You Never Drive it. That retractable top is garbage, 4 ECMS for that alone and the weather stripping cost is Huge! My C5 has 6 ECM's alone... I'd rather have my '72 C3 Stingray... at least it didn't look like a dinosaur. Thanks Jay

    I've never thought that a seatbelt could be beautiful. Until today. I couldn't take my eyes off of them. Is body color matching seatbelts a thing on all Corvettes?

    Is the toaster in there too??? Press a button, the cup drops down and the coffee dribbles into it. We'll see how the people like it by the sales numbers.

    This is sad, Chevrolet just moved out from my country's market, then there's zero chance this will be sold here, especially when there will be right hand drive version in Australia.

    Saw the new Corvette at SF Auto Show. She’s beautiful! I considered the Corvette when I bought my Jaguar F-Type. They wouldn’t let me drive one at Redwood City Chevrolet. No idea why I wasn’t considered a Corvette candidate. I was wearing a $10,000 ring on my finger.
    Excited that the Corvette is so accessible, assuming they let people test drive their cars.

    or for the eternal cause or causes of all things. It presupposes then that there is an eternal and unchangeable order within which History takes place and which is not in any way affected by History. It presupposes in other words that any “realm of freedom“ is not more than a dependent province within the “the realm of necessity.“ It presupposes, in the words of Kojeve, that “Being is essentially immutable in itself and eternally identical with itself.“ This presupposition is not

    My basic Yugo can outperformed this Corvette in the winter.
