In this special edition of His Turn-Her Turn, Lauren Fix & Paul Brian give us their first drive impression of the all-new mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray and the results are impressive!!! As North American Car Truck & Utility of the Year jurors Lauren Fix & Paul Brian were lucky enough to be one of the first 50 people in the world to drive the 2020 Corvette C8. It was a huge honor & easy to see why there are over 30,000 reservations on the new Corvette C8. This is the best build & quality we have seen from GM & Chevrolet. Those that take delivery will be very happy with their purchase. A huge thank you to the GM team from the Car Coach Reports team! This first drive impression was massively impressive!

A full review on the 2020 Chevy Corvette C8 coming to Car Coach Reports soon! This first drive impression will have to hold you over in the meantime!

Special thanks to the Corvette engineers that took our first drive with us. Lauren Fix rode with Mike Hurley the Vehicle Dynamics Engineer. Paul Brian rode with Mike Petrucci the Lead Development Engineer.
