    I noticed that, but yes you can imagine the thousands who have sat their fat 300# slender selfs into that seat saying 'it fits perfect' not to mention those who sat on the edge of it.

    I want mine to hurry up!

    And the passenger side doesn't look far behind. Hope GM notices this and substitutes some new space age super duper memory foam.

    Here is one plausible explanation of why capacity has not been definitely reached yet- multiple deposits across competing dealers.

    Still no video of Simcoe saying this publicly during his presentation. The operative word in this rumor remains "thinks."

    Everything is dumb or stupid to you it seems by your replies. Try and relax a little...get the bigger wing option.

    Yes. But that doesn't mean I'm wrong. :)

    Go to the Vette forum. People are screaming for a "wing delete" option.

    Look at what Ferrari and McLaren are doing. They are integrating wings into the designs, not tacking them on.

    They scream about a lot of things ...doesn't mean their right :)

    If you don't order Z51 you won't get any wing. You can have a plain jane boring C8--no worries.

    TOUCHE!

    (oh I mean.. touche). :)

    I don't think commenting on a car's pluses or minuses is wrong. Its a car forum. Everyone is right and everyone is wrong.

    The world isn't going to stop tomorrow because some of us don't like "a wing"

    I don't like any of the spoilers either. The back end without one and in this color actually looks good (It's called ceramic matrix grey).

    Unfortunately the entire rear section of the car has to be removed to take the wing off -- or put the high one on.

    I have no problem. Just saying 'stupid' or 'dumb' is kinda silly.

    But hey, like you said just a bunch of internet people--agree on that one.

    And I can see how one might not like the wing. Your $ your call.

    Well, I'm with the Mayor and jm2 on this one. I kept hoping that THE spoiler wasn't real and GM had tacked it on to fake out all the guys doing renders....
    Sadly, I was wrong and the stupi…..I mean HIDEOUS rear spoiler is it. The nice thing is GM just saved me probably $5,000 (at least) because I won't buy a Z51 car because of THE spoiler.

    On a happier note:
    I wonder if GM will offer the convertible with a black top/black buttresses on the convertible like Ferrari does on the Spiders?

    Agree!

    The wing looks a bit cheap and hideous to my eye.....

    Make no mistake, the spoiler is in fact functional.
    The speeds at which you would derive the aero benefits probably break most speed limit laws.
    But it is there for a reason. It's not 'boy racer' stuff.

    First thing that came to mind when I saw the new Vette was"Looks like a 430".

    I know it's there for a purpose, I just wish it was better looking. Better still would have been active aero which I think may come on the HiPo cars.
