The Camaro would probably be the last one if the Corvette doesn't come with it in fact.

But agree with that as well. Chev and Ferrari is like comparing apples and watermelons.. you just can't

We have to remember that this is just a rumor based on assumptions. Maybe Chevy will really come out with a manual variant, there's still a sizable group of people who won't go for anything else.

Of course. We won't know for sure until they release information.

Could be in for a long wait, maybe those insider contacts that publications have will spill the beans soon.

Is the 2018 C7 Corvette ZR1 getting a manual transmission? If it is, maybe Chevy will keep to tradition and have the C8 come with it too.

It may be offered with an optional 7-speed manual transmission so we may see a manual C8.

Definitely will be a long wait. The buzz is still going on with the new C7 Grand Sport so we wont be getting much from the C8 it seems.

It's hard to base the new model on the C7 because it's a front-engined Corvette unlike the C8.

We probably won't be getting information about the C8 though because the C7 is still going on is what I think @LSx is trying to get at

Manual shifting was because there was no alternative in the early years. We now have a better alternative, lets use it.

Waiting impatiently
