    Ok Guys! After 15 years here... I’ll handle this... I know I’m gone after this but f’it!!
    Fack off Kaneda and 662SVT!!!
    You haven’t seen how it all plays out.
    You know that there’s challenged people on this board....
    let’s see numbers to numbers..
    if the Vette Winn’s then we all buy vettes....
    If the ford Winn’s, they get our money.
    Brand loyalty is a mental disorder.
    I know this first hand. I was the worst for it.
    Don’t go ruffling feathers though. It’s just not nice or necessary.

    it should, but it wont. Now if the 650+HP variation came now...then I think there would be a problem for Ford. You have the brand loyal guys who would only want the Ford no matter what, same with Chevy but me, I'll take the mid engine Z06 please!! I've got some time to wait.

    It will be 3600lbs. It’s 100lbs more than the c7.

    DCT is available it be base GT500 too which $10k more and has over 250 more hp.

    It’s 100lbs more than the c7. Basically you have a 500hp 3600lb mid engine car at $60k.
    By contrast the base mustang GT is 480hp at 3700lbs at less than $40k.
    Wow GM killed it with those numbers.

    More like 500lbs. 4100-3600 is 500lb difference.

    It’s not light at all. It’s 100lbs more than the c7 which is way heavier than the c6.

    The c8 power to weight looks like the mustang GT or the 11/12 gt500.

    The c6 z is amazing and is 500lbs lighter than the new c8!

    I just wish Dodge would man up, dump Fiat, and bring the Viper back with today's tech and a V10.

    I think a Z06 C8 when it drops is going to maul a GT500. A Z51 C8 I think will best a GT350 for about the same money. And that mid engine traction has made 0-60-100 unwinnable for any Mustang. The bar has been raised and Ford needs to raise its game or adjust its numbers.

    Maybe if ford took billions from the general public kitty, they could offer fast plastic rides too!

    OP,I notice how you and your other cum guzzling badge Polishers talk smack in the AM.

    You're the kind of guy that doesn't like progress. You think the C6 is more impressive than the C8? Are you ok?

    I'll bet you the base C8 laps any track faster than the GT500. How much you wanna bet? You have no idea how much better a mid-engine handles on a track.

    This is just the ENTRY level Vette too. Just wait. Z06 and ZR1 ZORA edition are coming. Look the GT500 is a great car. But it's comical if you think it's a better engineered car on any level than the Vette.

    I've said it a million times. Trying to turn pony/muscle cars into TRACK weapons is idiotic and the C8 just proves that. Sure you can teach a pig to do ballet, but teach a swan and it's a whole different thing.

    You all should be happy the Vette exists because it's going to really kill ADM's for Ford / Dodge dealers now. The bar has been raised.

    Oh, and the guy who thinks the GT350R would be close to the C8...you're a moron. Not even close. GT350R prices are about to PLUMMET.

    This and the GT500 are the two big performance reveals of the year. Let's keep the discussion here. Most of us are cross shopping both. Except for On D Bit. He's cross shopping the Civic and the Camry.

    I disagree, your first and subsequent posts have been about how great the 2 seater vette is compared to the mustang based gt500.

    It was not a good natured thread.

    And for the record, i am certain that for less than 10k more, the gt500 will be better equipped and faster in everything but maybe 0-60 due to traction than the c8 you see at "60k" entry price once optioned up to where most "cross-shoppers" would need it.

    To make the c8 interesting to me it would need to be 800hp. And the $ tag on that one is gonna be 150k+ and out of my range.

    Not to mention I need 4 seats.

    @ 60k, this seems too good to be true.

    All of this bickering and arguing over two cars that haven't even hit the streets yet. Opinions don't mean diddly squat in the end, except to provide some entertainment and food for thought. Let's just wait for the upcoming actual street and track tests/reviews and see what both the C8 (including a future Z06) and the GT-500 can do. I, for one, can't wait to see what a C8 Z06 can do on a track. For sure either Ford fans or Chevy fans (or Dodge fans) are going to be butt hurt a bit in the end. The wars will continue as they always have. For now, try to respect each other's opinions and wait to see how it all plays out. :cool:

    Bwahaha, the C8 is definitely rustling jimmies and this is just the base car. Regarding curb weight I have seen the same figure used for dry and wet, so who really knows. I’d imagine it’s going to be a little heavier wet, still nothing else will touch this car in performance for the dollar spent.

    Problem is price, once again. imo

    C8 base is 60k, GT500 will be 72-74k.
    The last base Viper started at 93k.

    IMO Dodge/Fiat is probably comfortable as is, Hellcatting the Charger, Challenger, Grand Cherokee and soon the Ram.
    Hell, the hellcat cars cannibalized the Viper in terms of talking about Dodge performance.

    Why spend money on R&D for a niche car that didn't sell well last go around?

    Add in if they went to DCT, the price would be way above the competition, even if it is a badass car.

    Got to hand it to Chevy, this is how you make an announcement. Build and Price is available from day one to boot! This is huge for some people.
