So basically, I'm disappointed in what I see, however it's encouraging to keep costs down I suppose.
The C7 Z06 without the Z07 pack is a pretty tame evolution from the base too. The Z07 gets all of the aggressive aero.

Multiple C8 Corvettes Destroyed As Transporter Truck Goes Up In Flames

https://www.carscoops.com/2021/10/mu...-up-in-flames/
.
A transporter truck carrying a bunch of brand new C8 Chevrolet Corvettes recently caught fire in a parking lot near Nashville, Tennessee. Videos of the fire were first shared to the C8 Corvette Owners (and Friends) page on Facebook. It is unclear what triggered the blaze but it occurred early in the morning and was quickly attended to by local fire crews.

In the videos, a handful of C8 Corvettes wrapped in car covers can be seen engulfed in flames. Corvette Blogger reports that the transport truck in question can carry up to 10 Corvettes at a time. According to the site, though, only the first half of the trailer caught fire, so maybe not all ‘Vettes were destroyed.

Just sold my m4 a couple of days ago, now I just need a z06 allocation to fill the empty space in my garage. I hope they are available for next summer, although it being released as a 2023 model doesn't give me much hope.

Keep checking with your dealer? A guy here got a Z51 C8 because the owner decided they didn't want it right after taking delivery. So this guy got it way way ahead of all sorts of people waiting for their allocation. The owner of the dealership found out and offered him 300K for the car, but the guy doesn't need the money, said thanks but no. Keep checking to see if something like that happens (someone had an allocation that doesn't want it or does something like sells the car back).

Is it pronounced "sure-I-can" ?

I want it built to spec so I wouldn't be interested in an off the lot car. With the new luxury car tax here in Canada I am guessing a top trim z06 will be in the ballpark of 140k+ otd. For that kind of money for a Chev that will likely depreciate pretty hard once supply catches up to demand, I won't accept any compromises.

regardless, the C8Z would destroy the 458. The Z will give some heavy hitter cars problems...

they can barely get regular c8's delivered, wonder when the the hell they will get z06's to customers.

It's turning out to be pretty epic.

I'd still take a 458 though. Or even an f430. Just something so much more special about a Ferrari.

2023 Corvette Z06 Convertible Teased As Company Hints At 8,600 RPM Redline

https://www.carscoops.com/2021/10/ch...0-rpm-redline/

The Corvette Z06 Convertible makes a brief appearance towards the end of the clip as its reflection is shown in a window.

We'll learn full details next week, but the normally aspirated engine is expected to have an output of around 617 hp (460 kW / 626 PS) and 480 lb-ft (651 Nm) of torque. That's quite a bit less than the old supercharged 6.2-liter V8, which developed 650 hp (485 kW / 659 PS) and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque, but it's still a sizeable improvement over the standard model that has up to 495 hp (369 kW / 502 PS) and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm) of torque.

The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will be unveiled on October 26th at 12 p.m. ET
