Same here.


I wonder if they can complete enough stress testing & QC resolution of the new FPC motor while keeping the MSRP somewhat reasonable. You can replicate a similar effect on a 90deg cross plane crank v8 with 180deg headers but I don't see anything like that being emissions compatible. Its well known that Ford has QC issues with its voodoo FPC motor.

I wonder if it will continue to use plastic springs for the suspension.

So I was watching a movie about Le Mans.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6673098/

How the (current) Ford GT return on the 50th year, one shot, one chance, and won Le Mans.

Just wondering, is Corvette (GM) trying to capture that same story line? Or will the Corvette be several years away?

GM is the king of low budget solutions to big budget problems

See: titanium exhausts, balsa wood floors, hydroformed frames, plastic bodies, 75 year old motors etc

The solutions work.

I'm not too confident about them offering a mid engined car with a FPC for <150k though.

@ the replies above


Honestly I would be very excited if they stopped using transverse leaf springs with the C8
