The first round of driving impressions of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette have filtered to the Internet. Inside, the cabin is nicely refined. The 0-60 dash is wickedly quick. And the turn-in is expectedly sharp. It sounds like a number of folks who’ve driven it, however, are a bit surprised at the amount of understeer at play.
Our friends at Motor Trend, say that if you “try to correct the understeer with a nudge of throttle, and you get more understeer.”
Jason Cammisa posted some initial thoughts on his Instagram:
All of this makes sense, of course. You don’t want the most-common version of the car to slap its owners on the first corner and send them spiraling into a guard rail. It’s great to hear that the interior is refined and the ride quality is fantastic. And it sounds like the chassis is crying out for much more power, which it will undoubtedly receive. That 2.8 second 0-60 time is unreal, especially for a car that costs well under $100,000.
We can’t wait to drive one and form our own opinion on the C8. That won’t happen for a bit, but stay tuned.
