Thoughts On The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette

After 3 years since the first sighting of the Prototype, the world has finally been blessed with the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray!


I am not one with my writing abilities so I am just going to try my best to share my thoughts on the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette. I think it is ABSOLUTELY insane that the starting price for these base model bad boys starts less than $60k! There are a couple of reasons why I think that is one of the most competitively priced sports cars on the market.

  • The styling of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is beyond incredible. It looks like a Ferrari 488 in the front and the lines are so aggressive running along the sides. Sadly, the further you get to the rear it starts to look like a Camaro and I am not a fan of that in any way.
  • The Performance, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray makes 490 Horsepower or 495 with the Z51 Performance Package which is about 30 horsepower more than the 460hp LT1. Tha all-new 6.2L V8 “LT2” which can do a Staggering 0-60mph in less than 3 seconds drives the car. Just for a reference, my GTR can do 0-60mph with Launch Control in 2.9 seconds and that’s with my performance Stage 3($10k worth of mods) set up. The current C7 ZR1 hits 60-mph in 2.8 seconds. The Performance alone for the BASE model C8 is worth every penny! 

The Cons

While I basically love everything about the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette except for the rear-end, there is however one more thing that bothers me. I understand that this frustrates most Chevy enthusiasts to hear that this model comes with the new 8-speed dual-clutch Automatic transmission. Saying that, this isn’t hating on the good ole paddle shifter boys but… I think that Chevy has a great heritage with the manual Vettes and I think it would be a shame to let it go. I believe they will be offering a manual option in the near future so don’t let your guard down, possible ZR1 option?
