The z06 is. Weíre never going to agree so if you think it isnít then it isnít to you.

People are buying this because itís gmís first supercar.

Never was there this much interest and craze over one car before. Not even with the one year only model c7zr came out.

This is in a different league. A supercar league.
I'm buying, but Super car never entered into any reason why for me

Same price, performance etc, would you buy the Chevy or something like a Ferrari, Lamborghini, etc?

I'm not taking the Chevy...

Corvettes have offered equal or better performance than Ferraris for half or a 1/3 or the price.

If the zora is a reality, that price point will be 200k and will shatter everything in sight when talking about hybrid/ice not including any hyper ev cars.

There is no comparison. Corvettes have been at supercar peformance for decades, dating back to the c5 in my opinion.

The c8z is when it’s finally dressed in a supercar attire while, we hope, to still carry the supercar performance like in the past.

I don’t know why it’s so hard to accept. More people will agree it’s a supercar finally. If you don’t then you don’t.

You can keep saying that you think it's a super car. But your claim about other peoples' opinions is obviously unfounded.

It's a Corvette, it's not a super car. The Zora won't be either.

Don't waste your time replying to him. His is the king Vette nut swinging, fanboy ever. They should give him the first one made for free. Lol. He had to get his first blow job in 1 or something. It's deep in his soul this love for the Chevy unicorn 🦄 It's all good. I just know being a car guy and growing up with friends who are car guys, if someone asked a 1000 people if you could have any car what would it be? ZERO would pick any Vette. Which answers the question of super car or not to me. Some people dream and some dream big😉🤣

to me, that is the connotation of exotic, not super car.
people want an exotic because that scenario you want what you can't have, so to speak. the definition of exotic means "originating in a far away/foreign land." so by definition exotic can be a fiat.... but automotive connotation for exotic is something just out of reach for someone who is asked "if you could pick..." meaning "you can't have so if you could." no one asks "if you could" to someone who can.

wikipedia uses supercar and exotic interchangeably but defines supercar as "a loosely defined description of street-legal, high-performance sports cars." so a corvette DEFINITELY fits into that box.

but it does NOT fit the exotic connotation or definition because it IS made in the USA AND people can buy one, so they can indeed have one if they really want one.

with that out of the way, let's move on.

Lol exactly.

First that clown says same price corvette or Ferrari what would I pick?

Corvettes never cost what Ferraris cost but offer equal or better performance for 1/3 or half the price.

Thereís people on the corvette forum with Ferraris, mclarens, Porsche turbo s and yet theyíre still buying corvettes.

Is it an exotic in the sense of cost and limited quantity? No.

But it is a supercar.

And more will agree than not so yeah letís move on.

Hopefully those on the lists will finally own gmís first supercar soon!!!

Stop going to price dude. There is always an excuse to buy or not buy something. Again. If people want a Vette, they would buy the highest model they could afford. You don't buy the stingray to say I have the stingray. You don't buy a plane ass 911 if you can afford the 4 or 4 S? You rattle off these numbers and say this or that is an exotic? A plaid will smoke just about every car EVER built. I guess you would say that's exotic to? Just cause your a total insane Vette lover will never make the car an exotic/ super car anything. My opinion, a 911 turbo is not an exotic super car. Yet it will destroy your Z06 in reverse off the line. Yes, the Vette has a lot of hype. You know why? It sounds like a real Exotic. Lol. I hope I get one. Maybe I keep it or maybe not. I fucking hate the ass end!!!!' I prey an aftermarket something will help it out. I think with new wheels, lowered and an exhaust 85% of the car is Dope. I hope the car is as magical as you are always saying and not a flop. 🙏🙏🙏

This post is proof that you had ZERO input to the discussion at all. And your insecurity has been shown in plain view for all of us to see.

So every car people buy, it HAS TO BE the top of the line?

My manager makes 526k a year as i saw his paystub by accident in his car. You want to know what car he drives? A jeep fucking grand fucking cherokee. His wife drives plain jane X4. Not even an X4M. She's a nurse. He makes 526k. So i guess he can't afford an X4M then since he got his wife an X4.

Stop going to price? This is what you said.

Same price, performance etc, would you buy the Chevy or something like a Ferrari, Lamborghini, etc?

This post makes zero sense as a corvette is in a different price bracket as ferrari or a lambo. I never said a corvette is in that price bracket. I also said is a corvette an exotic in the sense of price and limited production in numbers. I said no.

I said is it a supercar in the general meaning of the word? YES.

You keep saying it's not, just because GM has built something extremely special.

I also said WHAT WE KNOW OF SO FAR, makes the car all of any definition of the word, supercar.

I also said we have to wait until we see performance data before we can solidify as the car being an actual supercar. From what we know SO FAR about the car, it is 1000000% is.

You keep getting your feelings hurt for some reason that someone wants to label a mass produced corvette a supercar.

I have owned corvettes for 2 decades and never once have i said any of the corvettes i owned were supercars. So how am i a fanboy?

Everyone and their mother knows GM built something special with the C8Z. GM's first supercar.

Stop whining dude. You're the one who said we have to agree to disagree. And i agreed to even that. You don't think the car is a supercar and that's fine. You don't. Awesome.

I do and more people will agree than those who will agree with you.

No one is buying a Corvette when they can afford a Ferrari. Maybe 0.1% of the population would choose a Z06 over a 458/488 etc.

Corvette's are just not special cars. They are associated with people with a mid life crisis.

No one chooses between a Corvette and an exotic the likes of a Ferrari/Lamborghini/McLaren. However, some people who already own one or several exotics could still consider getting a C8 Z06 as their daily commuter. I know I would rather have a Z06 than a Carrera S (just as an example).

Pretty sure he blocked me awhile ago lol. He / She (not sure his pronouns) is a very strange individual. I question if he even owns an M3 or whatever he claims he has with his self-deprecating nonsense.

Sad, but true. I had a c7Z06 when i was 28, and it was a great car. Fast, and reliable. It's sad that many people wont give the Corvette a chance simply because it's a "chevy" .. get off the high horse.

Too many cars out there to drive, and own, not enough time. The Z's have always been fast, and the C8Z will been no exception. It's going to slap alot of supercars around and have reliability and low maintenance to boot. But it still isn't a supercar. It's just as fast (or) faster than some...

People who talk out of their ass like most here don't have either. They just say they do, or know a friend, or saw something online and they draw their conclusions based on that.

Corvettes have had supercar performance for decades, and it was never a supercar.

The C8Z finally is, and when we get the performance data, will cement it as one.

But i guess it's also cool to just spend more money, on a 10 year old exotic, that's slower, with old tech, no warranty, with a shit ton of mileage just to spite GM's new creation of their supercar, just to say, that's not a supercar, i rather have a 10 year old exotic instead.

Pure comedy LOL

Right. Many people on the corvette forum with BOTH.

A "poor man" stingray, sitting next to their ferrari. With their C8Z on order.

I guess supercar owners like shopping for new supercars
