I don't care for the scoop near the rear wheels.  Just looks like they stuck it on.

hopefully interior is updated. i heard dealerships are practically giving away vettes on their lots right now. this will be an interesting debut! will need to see some numbers first.

 

plus first year release from chevy? definitely want to wait for the second year car :)

Agreed!  I would never buy the first year of a new car.  Let them work out the issues and then look at the 2nd or 3rd year.  Just look at the trans issues of the 2009 GTR.  Perfect example.

Last thing I would do is buy a first generation Corvette and run it on track. Did that in 2014 and ended up with a GM buyback offer since the car wouldn't run 30 minutes on track without overheating and its muffler valve actuators melting.

 

Then again it's not like my 09 GT-R didn't need additional cooling either!

First year GT-R for me.  Then first year F90 M5.  Okay there were problems with the GT-R, broken trans twice (heat, stupidly didn't get trans cooler until I killed it).

 

It can be thrilling to have the first generation car, but also fraught with a lot of potential failures.

And you most likely paid MSRP plus if you bought an early one based on the demand?

$72,000 - I bought mine used.  With 1400 miles.  Had it on the track within two weeks.  Changed the transmission fluid before the fourth track event (six track days down).
