Well guys it was nice being on this chat I’ve canceled my order for an Emira and order a Vette that beast will be unleashed thanks guys you guys are awesome 

Even if you put lipstick on it, it'll still be a pig to look at.

But, hope you enjoy your choice, secretly I sensed you would always opt for the Vette.

It's hard to argue with your choice.  It really looks fantastic, and is a properly compelling proposition - especially in the US, where the $ price is astonishing for what you are getting.  As @MJON said, don't be a stranger.   Look forward to hearing (and seeing) how you get on with the car when it arrives.

We’ll that’s another deposit down……….. one less in the queue.

Another “straight line chaser” !! It seems a lot ( disclaimer - but not all ) of Americans want to do nothing other than to launch at maximum speed.

the Corvette is a little above the price range I am looking, but for £80-100K it would be well on my radar, and probably would if I were on a V6FE, just to compare the poverty spec 'vette

Are we pretending that all the choices mentioned are not straight line chasers and dick extensions - For the corners and driving experience on 4 wheels the choice is around the Seven end of the market

As long as you don't mind waiting - I rang the UK dealer yesterday and they told me that if you order now, delivery would be autumn 2023!

The C8 is a monster though and it doesn't corner all that bad. I'd be surprised if the V6FE is quicker around the track, let alone anywhere else.

I just read up on the new V8 engine in the Z06 and from the stats it looks like a really great engine! 
 

The Americans don’t usually compete at the high end favouring big heavy and simple engines but this appears to be right up up there and packed full of good tech and engineering.  We’ll done Vette! 
 

Just wish Lotus could have done something similar before waving goodbye to the ICE but fully understand Lotus had very different constraints and requirements for their new cars. 
 

Not read any in-depth reviews on the C8 but I thought it went round corners we’ll enough? Combined with that engine I think it will put up a good fight.

the Emira doesn’t  fit my luggage...

This is an interesting point for me and I'll be intrigued to see the ongoing reception to the Emira off the back of it.

Competition (Caymans mainly) have quite a lot of boot space due to dual boots. The Evora could compensate somewhat because it had back seats. I know that there is some luggage space in the Emira behind the seats but it's not that much as space has been taken up for the AMG packaging I believe, certainly didn't look spacious back there at Goodwood.

I suspect a lot of people will want space for touring. I certainly wouldn't want less space than the Evora, it was fine for a couple of weeks away,  I suspect less space and I would start to struggle to take it on longer road trips.

Roof racks? No?

Hang on! I've got it. A trailer. That'll sort it. :yes: (Aww rats. There isn't a trailer emoticon to put in here.)
