    I watched the unveiling. Is there anyone in the design team under 60?

    Nice looking car, and you can't beat the price. It will be interesting to see where they price the higher performance versions.

    Is there going to be a targa top? I don't care for fully open cars or the complex mechanisms, but a removable top would be similar to my 360's sunroof. That I'd like.

    From a passenger perspective. To me it feels like there is a partition between the driver and passenger. I do like the central spine with the buttons. I think people are going to like that once they try it. I just wish it was at least a couple inches lower coming from the highest point.

    Yes! What’s cool is that not only can you stow it in the REAR trunk cargo area neatly, but it’s offered in exposed carbon fiber, and a transparent/glass top option as well from factory.

    I think I must have one of these. With three tops: body color, CF, and transparent (Smoke, I would hope).

    Need to see a black one. Could be the Batmobile I always wanted. :)

    I just wish they had stopped before they put the "blade" on the intakes ...... apart from that it is an 8 out of 10 for me.

    I’m surprised how much I like it. Interior seems high-quality. If a F360, F430 and a new NSX had a baby...!

    I'm liking the exterior :) and, at least, the materials used on the interior.

    But i'm still not liking that long row of buttons (and i love buttons). Practically no controls or switches to the left of the steering wheel? It really feels like the interior is designed to "isolate" the driver from the passenger, with a heavily imbalanced "wall of control" between the two.

    I like the row of buttons a lot. It's something different and adds a little verve to the interior.

    Wanted to add some American Muscle in with stable and decided new C8 is just too fun for price. Certainly doesn't look like your grandpa's Vette.

    Built one and gave my dealer deposit. Should have in Jan...I mean what the hell. He said pricing will be out next month, but probably $80K speced. That is cheap. Was going to grab GT500, but think this is better American toy for stable.
