Powerglide with no torque converter would be perfect for this car. 2 speeds is really all an electric car will ever need.

I wonder if you can replicate the experience of rev-matching and heel-toe, though?

Obviously the targeted buyer are the wealthy that want something rare. Leno will probably buy one

What some can’t realize is that electricity will take over, and that they only have a taste for their own era’s stuff. Respect for the rest...
Dastrio (5 months ago)
I'm so confused, does it have a Tachometer? Does it stall? Do you need to rev match? Is it really like a normal manual transmission? There is hope for manual gear boxes in a future full of EV's!! I'm so glad!

Putting a manual transmission in an EV is like putting a horse in front of a petrol car... a step back in innovation -- useless

noooooooooppeee I love electric vehicles I really do I think this is freaking awesome but not $750,000 worth of Awesome. These are obviously not built for any kind of General consumer even if you are rich because it's completely impractical when you can buy like 7 Tesla Model S's for that price or 3.5 Tesla semis for that price (the semis are 200k right) 3 2020 Tesla roadsters for that price. Or get this for less than a third of that price you could buy a Corvette and do it yourself. Or take it to a reputable EV conversion company and have them do it and it'll still cost less and be just as fast.

10 corvettes. You could convert a used one for 5% of that

Not a real corvette what the hell
Carter Johnson (6 months ago)
Guys don't worry this is fake. This video was proven inaccurate a few days after it was released. It's just a regular corvette with no mods at all. All the dialogue is completely false. CNN at it again with fake stories.
Joseph Simko (6 months ago)
It drives me nuts that more mainstream manufacturers haven't come out with more electric cars. I love corvettes, but I want to be able to buy an electric one.

You could probably buy 3 of Tesla’s new Roadster concepts and get a good electric sports car that’s actually designed to be a good fucking electric sports car.

Alan Ray Locklear (6 months ago)
No. That is no longer a Corvette. That is a liberal's prissymobile.
FaZe BooceJr. (6 months ago)

No one is asking for an electric vette. No sound=no thanks. All electric cars sound the same ... like a golf cart. If u want to spend $1,000,000 to drive around to sound like a golf cart, then you like to waste money when u can just buy a used golf cart. Like all non-car enthusiasts, they think image is all that matters. Without the soul of the car, the engine rumble, it's just transportation. Why spend big bucks on soulless electric transportation? Imagine going to a concert and the singer has no voice (just subtitles). That is the electric car. Have fun ... not.

I respect the shit outta the engineering and originality of this car.But 750 grand is unbelievable high this car is worth 250k at most.As for the claimed top speed and it being manual is super impressive.Not gonna lie very weird seeing an electric vette

I think that if they find a way to play an exhaust note through speakers that you can control the volume on I would be okay with having an electric car. This is cool
