  1. I enjoy documentaries, hopefully it was done well and has some excellent content in it. GM did this with the C6 before and it was pretty entertaining.

  2. Two thoughts re: the move to mid-engine:

    One, not sure about taking the front-engine concept as far as it could go; Don Panoz’s LeMans prototype racers took the front/mid-engine concept a major step forward, and

    Two, Jim Hall’s Group 7 Chaparrals seem to have had influence on the C8, and given his relationship with GM, I would not be surprised if they did.
