    From what I seen it’s styling leans more Italian, and have no issues with that, and later versions of their primary model looks very nice all angled up

    I feel like it could be a real winner. I’m excited to see one in-person.

    Mid-engine cars are looking more and more alike. Must be the software spitting out good aero numbers when shaped like this.

    Looks like the designers spent a little time @ Pininfarina. That is one great looking car, I’ll be glad to age out before the internal combustion engine does.

    All in all it looks pretty much every other super car. The one view that looks a bit too much like the Camaro is from the side rear.

    I must say I was stunned they kept the starting price below $60k.

    The “midlife crisis” car has never looked so good! Kidding... I’ve owned a few Corvettes myself over the years, the C8 design is impressive indeed.

    0-60 in under 3 seconds. Should be a winner.

    Looks great!

    At that price everybody will have one which will ruin the ego part. And that's really cool. A performance car that is for drivers, not people trying to impress anybody.

    Love it.
