GM is obviously targeting the Shelbys by giving people a mass-produced low cost sports car in the style of a Ferrari.I doubt many Ferrari faithful will trade-in their prancing horse for a Vette. I wouldn't be shocked if a bunch added a Vette to their stable though. But then the point isn't to convert Ferrari owners but to give Vette owners Ferrari like performance, and it appears a similar style.
Then again a number of potential GT500 owners were upgrading from their Mustang GT daily drivers.
We know 6 footers will fit in the 48 inch tall C8 but how does it feel getting in and out of one on a regular basis?
Another question is the non-expandable trunk next to the V8, does it get warm?
