5 Genuinely Impressive "Flaws" Of The C8 Corvette

The Brilliant Engineering Of The Mid-Engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8

3w ago


The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8. It's a supercar killer and it's headed to driveways for a fraction of the price. You know it's mid-engined, you know it's crazy fast But is it without flaw? Several "flaws" seem to be the main talking points: that it's brake-by-wire, that the C7 had more stopping grip, that it understeers, that it uses a two-valve-per-cylinder pushrod engine, and that it comes with all-season tires. But if look closely at the engineering behind any of these elements, you'll find there's actually a brilliant story to be told.

  • Where is the whiteboard, did I miss it.

    Yet again, excellent explanations as to why things are done they way they are.

  • I always appreciate the depth he goes into in his videos, even if it's over my head sometimes. I like that he doesn't just repeat the usual talking points used by the clickbait folks. Science!

  • Great article ... thank you.

    All these reviews about the introductory C8 ... most glowing and some mildly critical. It seems that many are dismissing the fact that the 2020 C8 is the “rental car” version and the Z07 C8’s have yet to hit the showroom floor. I respect GM’s pragmatism as it relates to their roll out timeline.

    Better things to come!
