Check out this video from YouTuber EddieX where he compares a C8 Corvette to his Audi R8. Right away a used R8 RWD in price doesn’t compare in price 130k vs. 85k, which on average is 45k more and has a lot less to offer especially in creature comforts.
The latest generation of the Corvette has become a mid-engine sports car, which really elevates the performance as well as the exotic appeal of this American icon. So now how does it compare with a much more expensive mid-engine sports car, the Audi R8?
Its interesting how similar the recipes are, NA engine behind you, dual-clutch transmission and RWD.
One of the biggest differences is going to be price. When brand new, the R8 and this C8 I’m driving are essentially $70,000 apart, but R8s are available used now, so the specific price delta here is $40,000. After having driven and tracked the new C8 Stingray, and been in many R8s (recently purchasing a 2018 R8 RWS), I started thinking about if the R8 is actually worth it. We discuss some of the similarities, differences and how each car compares to the other. Do you think the R8 is worth spending extra money on? Which would you rather drive and own?
Check out this video from Speed Phenom on YouTube where he compares a Porsche 718 Spyder vs. a C8 Corvette that he has owned for over 20,000 miles.
2020 Mid engine Porsche vs. 2020 Mid Engine C8 Corvette
Some of the differences they point out with these two mid engine cars
Porsche 718 Spyder has a manual option
6 piston brakes on the Porsche 718 Spyder
4 piston Brembo brakes on the C8 Corvette
718 Spyder gets from 0–60 in just 4.2 seconds
C8 Corvette gets from 0-60 in under 3.0 seconds
718 Spyder 3200lbs
C8 Corvette 3366lbs
To point out they always give the “manual” experience story and Speed Phenom said “if the C8 Corvette had a manual people would buy it no..”
And if you look at the stats on the C7 Corvette only 13% of the C7s sold were manual. So the numbers show even though all these car guys always talk about getting a manual, missing a manual etc… most don’t buy them.
Automatic dual clutch transmissions are hard to beat and nowadays people need another hand for their phones. (lol)
Here is a real life review of a Corvette C8 from previous C7 Corvette Z06 owner Steven Cusson on YouTube.
Get his perspective on the good, bad, and ugly on the C8 Corvette vs. the Z06 C7 Corvette.
Something he mentioned he likes about the C8 Corvette is:
Apple Car Play
More comfortable than a C7 Corvette
Drives and Rides better than a C7 Corvette
Would launch and take a C7 Corvette in the 0 to 60
Loves the exotic look
Will take a C8 Corvette over a Z06 C7 Corvette

Chevrolet Corvette Review (2019-2020): Comparing the Corvette C7 & C8 | Prices, Impressions & More
Per their article and video description of the C7 vs C8 Corvette review.
The Chevrolet Corvette has been an American sports car icon for over half a century. Historically the Corvette has always been one of the more affordable and usable sports cars on the road, and that appeal has helped make it one of the most popular performance cars in the world. If you’ve always dreamed of cruising down the highway in your very own Vette but worried it would break your bank account, the experts at Edmunds are here to help. Travis Langness and Elana Scherr take a closer look at two of the most recent Corvette variants to help you decide which one fits best in your budget and lifestyle. The two Corvettes reviewed in this video are the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Even though these two Corvettes are only a year apart, the differences are significant. Redesigned for 2020, the Corvette Stingray (often referred to as the Corvette C8) has a completely different look and feel from the 2019 Corvette Z06 (known as the C7). But the biggest difference between these two sports cars is the engine. While the 2019 Corvette followed the classic under-the-hood front-engine layout, Chevrolet decided it needed to move to a mid-engine layout to enhance the car’s performance for 2020 and beyond. The new engine location — now behind the cabin — enhances the 2020 Corvette’s performance but does limit the rear visibility. Shoppers looking for high-performance sports cars have been flocking to the Chevy Corvette for decades. It’s an American automotive institution that has aged like fine wine. Which Corvette is the right choice for you? We’ll help you answer that question and more in our review of the 2019 and 2020 Chevrolet Corvette.

2020 Corvette Stingray Review ― Test Drive of the New Corvette C8
We finally get our hands on the new mid-engine 2020 Corvette Stingray. In this video review of the Corvette C8, Kurt Niebuhr walks us through the interior, the results from our test track and what it’s like to drive.
With a mid-engine design and low price, the 2020 Corvette C8 promises a lot. Fortunately, it delivers. The C8 is enormous fun to drive on mountain roads, quick on our test track and comfortable on the daily commute. This Corvette is a true working-class sports car that makes us question the value of costlier competition.
For 2020, the Corvette has undergone the most radical redesign in its 67-year history. Believing that they had squeezed every ounce of performance they could from the Corvette’s classic front-engine and rear-drive layout, Chevrolet’s engineers decided a new mid-engine layout was the way to go for its inherent advantages in weight distribution. Risky? Yes. But the result is hugely impressive.
It’s rare to see a car, let alone an institution like the Corvette, so radically transformed. But Chevrolet has taken its performance icon and improved it in nearly every way. It’s bonkers fast, handles beautifully, and still manages traffic and daily errands. The styling may be controversial, but its price and performance certainly are not.
In terms of performance, the Corvette C8 equals or outshines cars costing two to three times as much. The new 6.2-liter V8 and dual-clutch automatic transmission combo is formidable on the track but offers plenty of oomph and smooth operation in nearly any condition. The new Corvette also imparts more information about its handling balance and grip, thereby giving its driver more confidence in taking the car up to its handling limits.
As with past Corvettes, the C8 is practical for both daily driving and long trips. Although the total cargo area isn’t as usable as before, it’s still large enough to fit a few pieces of luggage. There’s still space for the coupe’s removable targa roof panel top in the rear, and the lack of an engine up front means there’s a small frunk in the nose. The new interior has a sharp, driver-focused design and fine materials throughout. A Corvette convertible is on its way, too.
It’s easy to be impressed by the new Corvette C8. Its performance rivals that of more expensive sports cars, yet the Corvette is still everyday comfortable and practical. But it’s the performance that amazes the most with easily explorable yet considerable limits. The transformation has been nothing short of shocking.
The 2020 C8 Corvette is the BEST way to spend $60,000 *World’s First DONUTS!*
2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Review. This C8 Corvette review was filmed on the roads without the Z51 Package and on the track with the C8 Corvette Z51 package.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 REVIEW – THE BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
2020 Chevrolet Corvette Review – Mid-Engine Marvel!
I review the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette with it’s mid-engine design and supercar performance. It’s starting price of just $59,995 makes it one of the best sports car bargains the world has ever seen. With a blazing fast 2.9 second 0-60 time, and excellent handling, this standard C8 Corvette is already more performance than most people will ever be able to use on the street. Add in the dramatic looks and great sound, and you have a car that everyone else on the street will admire as well. What do you think of the mid-engine Corvette C8? Huge thanks to Chevy for providing me with this opportunity to drive the 2020 Corvette!
