Yep, amazing platform. Unfortunately the racing teamís results donít directly correlate to build quality from the factory. I still get emails from one of the big dealers and I asked them if they were talking about the build quality issues and he said it was being discussed every day but the pandemic has forced them to use alternate suppliers in some cases which is why youíre seeing separating lining on the hardtop convertibles, broken valve springs within a few hundred miles, various other faults. Unfortunately though other issues like the frunk, ghost CELs and trim and body misalignment issues were going on before they had supplier issues. I sold my C7 some time after I got on the C8 list, but am glad I got the Porsche instead. Iíd be pissed if I had all those problems with my $80k car. Yes, I did pay more for the Porsche but I am out driving it instead of it being in the shop on a lift or having to go through a lemon law process.
