To quote Mark Twain, I’m in favor of progress—it’s change I don’t like. In the months leading up to the reveal of the new C8 Corvette, I was thinking the same thing as probably a lot of people: Chevy will continue to produce the C7 at an affordable price, and the C8 will be a top-of-the-line car for, maybe, $180,000, and not many people will buy it. When they announced the C8’s base price of $60,000, it totally changed my mind about the car. I’ve got a newer Acura NSX, and although it’s a terrific car and I love it, it was $205,000 out the door.
