so GM is to stop taking orders for the 2018 Corvette in November meaning a very short Production run for the 2018 Model year, I do not know if they will offer a 65th Anniversary edition or a commemorative edition (if this is the last year of the C-7) rumors are that the C-8 will finally get the mid engine platform so often promised, rumored but never seeing fruition. there is talk of ALL C-8's being the mid-engine design with a couple of variables for power-plants from mild to wild. AND, that they are considering offering a "base" model with a target price of around 65K if the 2018 model marks the end of the C-7 it will match the shortest series run in this car's long and storied history. 5 years for the C-2 (1963-67) and 5 years for the C-7's (2014-18) I'm curious to see what happens here because it would not make sense from a corporate standpoint to tool up for two distinct platforms (front engine rear wheel drive and/or mid-engine) for a car with such a "limited" output in production to begin with and, it will be interesting to see if the Corvette survives to see it's 70th Birthday in 5 more model years. time will tell for sure.

Seems sad to see the C7 go already! ( if it does )
It has really grown on my bride an myself.

We've thought several times of getting one but alas other priorities take first seat.

Time for a C8 and complete remake, it is finally time to do a mid-engine one. Gotta keep up with Ford.

I just hope they make it easy to work on. I've seen a few mid engine cars close up & they all were a PIA.
