Reality is, on paper it will help the c8 look good on paper but that's just about it that'll matter to owners. Same goes for the Nissan GT-R regardless of how it changes in the future.

The Speedtails elongated design not only helps to reduce drag, but it will also keep the car stable at high speeds, which McLaren has said tops out around 250mph. Similarly with the C8 you can bet that its rear end will help to reduce turbulence at higher speeds.

If Chevy gets serious about playing with the big boys and offering higher tier features, they'll do well at launching special edition versions. I just fear that in the process they might become too European and end up losing to true European Supercar brands that will always have a major advantage. Not being a flop like the NSX should be priority #1.

Well we've also seen from the new electric Camaro at this years SEMA that Chevy has already begun to develop high performance electric powerplants. That's the probably the next step for the Corvette as we move into the 2020's.

Lucky for GM an aftermarket company already made the move without them but at $750,000 and 75 units, its only for the select few. Still, I would like to see a review comparison.

Don't have all that much interest in track only models, so we'll have to wait and see what trails down to a production variant. Ford needs to speed up their R&D, otherwise the Mustang might lose its number 1 position. Who knows what'll happen if it goes 4 door.

the whole Ford Performance division is on the right path and the same effort put into expanding Mustang DNA to a range of models could have great upsides.
