Pictures of my Stryker Blue G8 with my 2002 Corvette
I thought some of you might want to see these pics. I bought my 2009.5 Styker Blue G8 GT a couple weeks ago. I finally got a chance to take some pics of it alongside my 2002 Electron Blue Corvette Coupe.
I'd like to have that combo as well. I was also talking to my wife saying that the g8 and the new camaro ss convertible would make for a nice combo. I'm partly there. I just need a vette/camaro and a garage. Damn condo living! Can't wait to get a house! My wife always wanted a vette but now she drools over the aston martin's. I guess my expensive tastes are rubbing off on her, as well as, where I bought my g8 they also sell lamborghini, aston martin, maserati, rolls royce, bentley, etc... Let me tell you that waiting for them to get my car from another dealer wasn't a problem for my wife and I. It was our first time seeing a lot of these cars in person. There was a lot of drooling going on.
Beautiful cars bud! You can really see the reason behind the Corvette's awesome mpg highway numbers! Just look at that profile!
RIP PONTIAC G8

“In terms of the emotion of it I guess it would be pretty hard to deny the fact that we’re disappointed. The G8 program was a ripper. It was a great car, it was exceptionally well received and it got some fantastic reviews in the States." Mr Whiffin
What are the differences in performance between the both you noticed the most?
BTW...that looks sweeeeeet! Good luck!
The thing you notice most is that these cars are built for two very different reasons. The Corvette is pure performance. It's lighter, nimbler, quicker, and overall a more spirited car to drive. The G8 is a polished performance cruiser. It rides so well and is so quiet at speed, yet it takes the corners incredibly well and is no slouch on acceleration.
At this stage in my life (30), I would choose the G8 over the C5 if I had to pick one. I do love driving the Corvette at times, but I honestly haven't driven it since I bought the G8. I'm sure that will change this summer, but for now I am content to tool around in the G8.
