All Corvette C6 6th generation Z51-Z06-ZR1 will last forever, bargain, made in USA and extinct. They should cost more, more and a lot.
The design is like F14, F15, F16 F18 and even F22, F35. If you look closely at their tails format. Circles fires burn forever. They are simple, beautiful and powerful. By the way, circles design are the best. They are the smallest, the biggest shape in the world of atoms, photons, quarks, univers and black holes. It defines the unit design of attraction, power and force. The design of the Corvette 6th generation seduces everybody from its tail light looks and curvy appealing body.
On another hand, the corvette lights look like an afterburner going on the ground. At night you can see the truth of the astonishing effect that corvette makes. The cockpit of the C6 is designed in a charm way totally like a canopy of an air plane, from its awsome targa through its curvy back end glass that beats any car. Furthermore this generation will never be produced again the same way. This monsterous glamour design defeat all the decades.
Corvette is the icon, jet car and the ship fighter car of America. They are faster than Lambo, Ferrari, GTR, M3, etc. in each generation.
The more you appreciate your corvette the more it lives in your bloodroots.

It is the ground force cars and nature of the beast.

I agree with you as far as the C6s good looks. I had an ‘07 ZO6, planned to buy a C7 ZO6 until I saw the C7 Stingray. It’s about the ugliest Corvette ever. The C8 looks good, but not as smooth and blended as the 6th generation.

The new C8 will do exactly what GM wants. Change the demographic of the owner base. I for one am not yet sold on it but I am sure that will change over time.
Over the years I have gone through 3 Porsche's, 2 were "911"s (964 & 993) and a 928GTS. The 928 was by far a much better car than the other 2, but that was my personal preference, apparently Porsche didn't agree with me and killed the 928. Funny thing is the 928 was like a C5. Front engine V8, torque tube rear transmission. Nearly 50/50 weight distribution you had to really screw up to lose control of that car. Hated the 911's. Always felt like I was driving a go kart. You sit way up front and felt like you on the wrong end of the fulcrum. The 993 was just a terrible car only kept that a few months and dumped it. As the family grew, I need a back seat so opted for several E39 BMW M5's. Good cars all seemed to have problems with them, and when my last one got close to 40K on the odometer I had thoughts of some catastrophic repair and sold that off before it did something bad. Then I bought a Ford GT. Great handling car, terrible ingress and egress. If you didn't open the doors all the way you could not get out. Handled well. But I like to use my cars as daily drivers April to early December. The GT was to impracticable. Scared to park it anywhere, couldn't see out the back, no backup camera etc so it had to go. The wife still reminds me to this day of that mistake because the value of them has done nothing but go up. Oh well.
Which brings me to my C6. Nice V8, can get parts for it with no problem and I can play around with it. I personally like sitting behind the motor. And because of that layout the styling is influenced by the packaging. Long nose short deck. That classic styling has been going on for decades. The 365GTB Ferrari just has that look. Yes the new 488 Pista is a gorgeous automobile and I think Ferrari owns the look. Everybody else is just a copy cat. And that my friends brings me to the C8. GM has to change the Corvette or it will become the Buick of sports cars. All you base will die off and the mark will die with the last owner. Change is good, if nothing else it will elevate our mark and give it relevance decades from now. It may even in it's own way make the last front engine, manual transmission cars more valuable, because "they don't make'm like they used to" and that's why the C8 will be a disrupter in the market. Unfortunately not the leader

That's a very interesting take on it and not having driven anything with an engine behind me, I'm a bit skeptical. One reason I'm thinking I'll hang on to my C6 and see how the C8 will pan out. If reviews are good, I will probably purchase a 2021 and keep both until I come up with a decision. That's the plan anyway.

I've also been looking at the Challenger Hellcat Redeye as a new toy so, who knows.

I am new to this forum and hope to get a c6 zo6 in the near future. I have to agree on the style of the C6..simply great and even better in black. Only concern is the valves but we know the story and the fix.

I think GM has misjudged their "new" demographic - I believe they will attract some new blood, but just as quickly that new blood will change to the "next new thing" and the ultimate end result will be the gradual demise of the marque as they have killed off the uniqueness of the Corvette formula.

There was no need to copy the Euros, I believe the Corvette has only been as successful as it has been over the last 60+ years BECAUSE it did not simply follow the Euros. Yeah sure Zora wanted a mid-rear car but thankfully he never got what he wanted as it would have killed the Vette off long ago.

This C8 seems to be more about what the GM team wanted than what the Corvette buyer wanted. The layout may be exotic but there will nothing exotic about 30,000 C8s running around on the roads.

It will simply become "that cheap Ferrari/Lambo knockoff" - whether deserved or not.

Of course this is just my opinion and your mileage may vary LOL >:) and what do I know I mean I still think the ultimate modern era Corvette is the C6 ZR1 in blue LOL
