    I wish they would stop making the base model Corvette and just start at the grand sport because that Corvette looks too low and the wheels and fenders do not look wide enough.! It could be a pretty car it has potential but you have to step to a grand sport before it starts looking good

    Jay wants #1 so he doesn't wear the jeans and blue shirt to Chevy.

    boy that guy sure sounds like he's rehearsed his marketing pitch - not sure I learned anything from this video; the car does sound great though, esp at this price point.

    Chevrolet *FINALLY* has a supercar. And they've completely outdone themselves, on everything from the car itself to the price point. By the way, I nearly didn't recognize Jay without his denim button-up and blue jeans. Looking spiffy there, Jay, in your khakis and dress shirt. LOL

    The poor man's exotic vehicle. Why pay $100k to 2.2mil? I mean, if you don't have it like that, why do without? Geta Vette!!!

    Why didn’t he take it on the highway? He always takes the cars outside for a rest drive. I haven’t seen anyone test drive the car other than GM employees. No magazines. No internet car sites. What is Corvette hiding?

    No no no no. This is bad. Corvette = front engine. There are plenty of mid-engine sports cars. I loved the fact that Corvette had always held fast to the front engine layout. I think the last generation front-engine Corvettes are going to increase in value from this point forward.

    1:55 Jay, there is the Porsche Cayman and Boxster that are both mid-engine and cost less than $100,000. The Cayman GT4 has 414 hp, and 0-60 around 4 seconds

    Jay is using marketing magic by placing himself wearing much nicer than normal attire next to the Corvette to project a rise of value in the car.

    "Brembo brakes, all the way around"...? For a while GM's design boffins were considering only putting the Brembo items on the left side, with a Girlock unit on the right-rear, and no brake at all on the right-front corner. Tedious, uncreative bean-counters demanded this arrangement be reconsidered - not solely to reassure Leno - before the final designed was locked in.

  • Ramone Salvatore

    $60,000 Jay...WRONG!!! Mister Engineer....says the starting point is under $60K? Did you boys and girls hear that? That is the key.....you can get a basic bare bones LT1 at the Starting point...which does not include dealer costs, or taxes and has nothing but old school technology with the cool new mid engine. Do you want that? Who does? I don't! This car you are looking at has the Z51 package because the spoiler gives it away as does the ground works. Add $5000 to that number and you are starting at just under $65K. The car is highly optional and based on all the RUclip vides if you go for the 2Lt package with the Z51 package you will be pushing $80K by the time you figure in dealer cost and taxes.....It is sad that top guys with all the money like Jay cannot get their facts or scripts right as he did with the tonight show and are misinforming us here. Oh well....he don't care...he made his money and can buy what ever he wants....the rest of us will work like slaves and try to get there...but thanks Jay....i know as the rest of us you did not do this intentionally.

    Passing through for Jay:
    Viscous Coupling
    There are of course differences in the power struggles of the sexes, the transfer of power though, the differential approach called viscous coupling, has a wider automotive ring to it too. I think all of human life though as we know it through the ages, has begun by this simple phrase. It's been coming into my mind lately and here it is explained :
    Led Zeppelin perhaps a little rougher around the edges in their approach in 1976 on the Album Physical Graffiti, hinted at the same general automotive analog to human sexuality in "Trampled Under Foot"

    Jay Leno, I love you dearly and enjoy your wry and biting sense of humor done with utmost gentility. Yes there are very, very many stupid as well as uneducated among us. Anyway that is not why I am responding.

    I think that the chief should have spoken more about "his" baby rather than you giving him leading questions. GM has taken a calculated risk in order to create, (if their metrics are correct), excitement for people to check out a Chevy dealer. I hope they are right. If they the new Corvette can match or exceed a Honda NSX ... at a considerably lower price point... that is all the better.

    I love cars, I am a mechanical engineer, you LOVE cars. But at the end of the day, they were designed to replace the horse. Sort of like microwave/ toaster ovens were deigned to make our life less burdensome.

      It's BS. In this video they talk about it having the fastest 0-60 of any any production vette, but that's the zr1. and then they say it starts at 60K. Two different models lol
