Somewhat lost among the reams of juicy details—495 horses! Less than 60 grand! No manual?!?!—that gushed out recently about the all-new mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette was the fact the C8 uses what General Motors has referred to as its Global B electrical architecture.

GM officials on hand during the reveal of the new 'Vette, including the car's chief engineer, Tadge Juechter, pointed to Global B as one of the key elements behind how Chevy was able to deliver what many thought would be a far more expensive car. It's all about economies of scale, and Global B, announced earlier this year, will scale its way into almost every GM vehicle by 2023. Hence the company did not have to spend who knows how much to develop a bespoke system for the C8.

This car is absolutely stunning, and just what Chevrolet needed. These are going to be difficult to obtain initially, but I'm hoping I can somehow purchase one.


I'm a true enthusiast for 1st and second gen Camaros. The gen 5 &6 Camaro has done nothing esthetically for me, but this corvette I'm all in!!!


As far as being only offered in auto trans, well for me with a sports car of this caliper I'd rather keep both hands on the wheel and paddle my way through the gears.

Are there any new performance/sports cars you would sit in?

I saw a video of a guy 6'5" and 300lbs and he fit just fine. I don't recall you being close to those #'s.

I can't wait to see the car in person.

Contrary to what the internet says, they are not sold out yet. We're receiving 14 allocations and we have only sold 8 of those so far.
