I sure as hell wouldn't buy a 1st year C8, probably not even a 2nd year.

I'm cautiously optimistic that this car will kick total ass and I'm extremely thrilled that they kept it a simple NA pushrod V8 and didn't go with turbos and the like. I'm sure this car will look amazing in person, especially with the right wheels, no wing, and the right color.
I don't really see your point as neither of those cars had close to the money, risk to the company, or engineering prowess behind them but anyway...the Z06 will be a DOHC twin turbo.
The Z06 usually has a breathed on version of the base engine, but ZR1 goodies in chassis and brakes... doesn't it? Maybe that's the GS. 🧐 I think the ZR1 will probably be a supercharged v8 like it is now. We will see!
