The asking price is $7,995. That’s a far cry from the sixty grand-plus it will take to join the Corvette squad with a new C8. Some of you would eschew that more expensive option, not from lack of funds, but on principle alone—you just like ‘Vettes that lead with their big V8s.

The new C8 Corvette is obviously the car that the poor old Pontiac Fiero wanted to be when it grew up. This C3 however is an already grownup car in the metal… er, plastic. Yes, it’s not going to have anything like the performance of either the earlier, less constrained cars, or the later more technologically advanced ‘Vettes. That doesn’t mean it can’t be a lot of fun. We just need to decide how much that amount of fun should cost.


What do you think, is this C3 worth that $7,995 asking? Or, does that price move this front-mid engine ‘Vette to the back of the pack?

You decide!
