If you haven't already heard:
- Mid-mounted 6.2l small-block V-8
- 490hp (495 with performance exhaust)
- 0-60 in under 3 seconds
- Larger interior than the C7
- Starting price under $60k (though that is almost certainly something like $59999 before destination) Convertible to be shown later
Primarily of concern is the 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. That is all that was announced. And, while a dual-clutch with paddle shifters is no-doubt the fastest way around a track, can it truly be a Corvette with no available manual transmission?
So, what do you think? Is the Corvette a non-starter without a proper manual? Should Chevrolet reconsider this decision as soon as they can for that part of the enthusiast community?
