Corvette pricing

GM says Corvette supercar will be priced at $119,995 and above, with a convertible version from $123,995. I was expecting to see something around $110k, so this price didn't surprise me. What price did you expect to see?

That's more than reasonable if the C8 delivers on the speculated 850 horsepower engine. Was expecting to see an MSRP no less than $100,000 but didn't really have a more specific idea beyond that. Don't suppose you have a link to where you found the pricing?

Already from your facts its priced like a GT-R and GM better make sure it can live up enough to what the GT-R does or at least its other American rivals like the SRT Viper. How close do you guys think this can get to GT-R levels of performance?

Really have no idea, there's more to a car than just numbers. For all we know the Corvette has more horsepower and torque than the GT-R but the other model may corner better. Who knows.

That's true to a point but when it comes close to something that's already coming out on top even in segments well above it, anything else that comes out is benchmarked against it. Regardless, GM has to do something about the GT-R. Unlike the Viper, this could come closer to being a good handling, high-powered vehicle... like the GT-R.
