    That'll be a nice late birthday gift. Also, can't wait to drive it in a version of Gran Turismo....in about 20 years.

    Why do I feel Cadillac won't get a MUCH NEEDED version of this car? I say "much needed" because of the brand image it would build for Cadillac. A version that probably would have happened under Johan.

    Anyhow, I can't wait for this. For C&D to assume it will be only $5,000.00 more (base) than the current Corvette is interesting. Especially considering how GM prices its new models. Guess we will know soon enough.

    Just another lazy re-badge from GM. The bean counters win again.

    It looks like a Nissan Maxima or a Cruz.

    Funny. So many here decry re-badges. Why would making the top range Cadillac such an obvious one help?

    A) Chevy has been highly protective of the Corvette over it's lifetime. I can't imagine how the XLR got green-lit. Probably because of a different body, different engines, the "need" to compete with the Mercedes SL. Right now, Cadillac seems (to me) to be trying to get back to their image as a luxury car/SUV maker. A sports car just won't fit that image.
    B) I would also be skeptical about that price increase. GM won't give us a pricing strategy at the reveal. But, once they do, I fully expect it to be $75K (ok, $74,995 + $100 billion destination fee).

    The camouflaged photos shown offer some good insight to the upcoming c8.

    98 days to go for the official reveal isnt too bad with expected deliveries by the end of december.

    I would have thought gm would just wait another month amd start deliveies january 21 st amd just call the c8 a 2021 model ...

    Either way the vehicle looks awesome and hopefully gm will squeeze 500 hp out of the LT2.

    This is quite a revolution compared to the already impressive c7.
