Chevy has been discounting them. Heck even on the Corvette page of the Chevy website they are advertising $6,404 discount plus another $3,000 ($9,404 total) for "owner loyalty". Not sure about lower models.

Locally prices are pretty good. Bonmin local dealer 5th largest Corvette seller in country has base 1LT around $44, Grand Sport $54. Both prices include Corvette loyalty ($3K off) which means you need to own or lease one now. As you might expect manual transmission is tougher to find,, Z51 as well.

If I were to guess, prices should come down more,, it'd be hard to buy a Grand Sport when a C8 could be had for almost the same money.

This is a good deal.....

rendering of what a front engine C8 would have looked like. most people in the comment section seems to like it.

Video aftermath of the first C8 crash on public roads near Yosemite NP. No details, only speculation about what happened, allegedly no injuries, the car was part of a Corvette convoy driven by a (now former?) GM employee.

From an automotive design standpoint, it’s doubtful it would look like this. This is just a fan rendering of a C7 with front and rear C8 clips. GM wouldn’t have reused the center section for a new generation Corvette.
