no manual no bueno
I have a deposit down, number 6 with my dealer, keeping my 2014 M7, I feel these are the two best technological corvette generations.

I agree, no manual, no C8. I'm sure we all purchased our C7's because they are fun to drive high performance car. If you want to go fast in a straight line, then an auto fits the bill. I like the ability to shift up and down when on small back roads. I must say the C8 is a great looking car with incredible performance. Changing subjects slightly, I was wondering what other think about the C8 attracting younger buyers. Especially those who were considering a new Porsche or even those switching from their old Porsche to a C8.
2016 Z06, 3LZ, Couple, Manual, Long Beach Red, Spice Red Package, 10 Spoke Blade Pearl Nickel wheels.
I had my reservation all lined up with my local dealer until the salesman sent me an update from the owner. He said that since they were almost sold out already (Bull S*#@) that he was requiring $7500 over MSRP and that amount was required as a deposit to hold my reservation. Needless to say, he will not be getting my business. It is ridicules how much these dealers will gouge someone. Damn near criminal if you ask me. May not be able to get one the first year, but I will get one.
Rick Conti is selling at MSRP. I don’t know about the other dealers who are sponsors here on the forum. Ask around.
GM is strongly discouraging dealers from asking over MSRP on the C8, but some dealers are just greedy. They can charge the unwary whatever they want, I guess, but that won’t be me or you.
Personally, I won't pay more than msrp and will walk away if price gouging especially the first year. Put the money in the bank and wait until it calms down.
Imo, it should be the other way around, they should pay the early adopter money to be the test subject.

2017 Stingray, base 1LT, AT, no mods, Watkins Glen Gray.
When the convertible version is ready, I’ll get a year-2 model to match my C7 colors.
It really, really, isn't an automatic. Think of it as a computer controlled manual.
I saw it in person yesterday at Selman chevrolet, the interior looks fantastic and quality. I plan to wait for Z06 or ZR1 version.

There is no torque converter, no planetary gears, fluid pumps. That is an automatic.
You can most definitely drop 2-3 gears, and if it's safe for the engine, it will do it. You can coast...
And yes, I own a manual C7. And having driven DCT cars, they are better.

It’s not an automatic. And you can select 2 or 3 downshifts, and it will get there faster than you can do it with a stick. Coasting in neutral? Why? I’ll bet that you can push the neutral button, or pull both levers and select neutral if you want too.
look, you don’t want one, fine, but you also won’t get 5th or 7th when you wanted another gear. A DCT is better. Sorry you don’t like the future.
