That spine from the touchscreen to the centre console, with the single row of buttons for climate control and heated seats on it. Who the hell thought that was a good easy to use way of laying them out?

Agree completely.

I just had a think about the C8 and I know now what bugs me about this and the last couple of generations. The 'Vette to me was all about that long hood, whether narrow (C1 - C3) or wide (C4, C5), which gave it that sleek, low look. This has progressively become shorter (visually speaking, probably due to added height to meet pedestrian impact regulations), whereas now it's gone altogether. Yes, one might argue that this is simply the evolution, but nonetheless, I think they gave away the proportions that made the Corvette special. Which is a bit of a shame in my opinion.

I actually don't mind it. I imagine the interior is pretty tight (so the buttons probably aren't THAT far away), and the arc of the buttons might sort of match the arc of your hand.

Besides, it looks like there's auto climate control, and the temp selector is a proper "flip" switch, so you can just set it and forget it.

It's pretty terrible. The styling is dull bordering on ugly. The interior is tragic.

The design is a little generic, but the value is INSANE. This kicks the NSX’s teeth in.

This is what the NSX needs to be to be effective as a halo car.

The read vents over the wheels is overly large IMO... the buttons to control everything along the with arm seems overly complicated.... however, performance looks impressive. I see this as a massive hit for GM

I think this is a significant and exciting vehicle. A true embarrassment to the Ford GT. GM is giving the supercar to the people yet again, truly astounding. Thanks Mary Barra and Company.
