THE ONLY ECONOMY LEFT: BREAKING THE C8 CORVETTE FOR YOUTUBE CLICKS

A Mid-Engined Race To The Bottom Is Happening In Real Time

Okay, that’s enough. Although, we suppose anybody attempting to tune the C8 Corvette where it shortly after ends in either catastrophic failure or a dead end has to make up for this expensive acquisition somehow. Maybe that’s why everybody has been chronicling every waking second with their C8 in low-rent vlogs designed to be watched by intellectual neanderthals.

There are several examples of this transgression, and we don’t really have to drop names here. You already know who they are.

Yes, yes, yes, we’re also in the business of generating clicks. So it may appear to be a bit of the pot yelling at the kettle, but we do so by publishing exclusive details on future products, interviews with key figureheads of the auto industry, and otherwise share with you the latest news happening in the pickup truck, SUV and muscle car world. Somebody has to do it. If that sounds like “clickbait” to you, then your homework assignment is to look up the very definition of the word.

Here’s a key fact: the first story published on MC&T over a year ago was that the C8 Corvette will likely be un-tunable. This article remains to be true, well into the launch of the 2020 Corvette Stingray, and it seems that nobody gave a care to listen. Or if they did, they simply didn’t want to believe it. Or they just didn’t care. After all, why trust the new kid on the block, right?

Maybe they’ll pay attention next time. But at any rate, these YouTubers are only posting videos because viewers from all over the world are simping over this low-grade content, and they profit handsomely for it. We suppose everybody needs a hustle. Yet, it follows the disturbing pattern of an overall race to the bottom when it comes to publishing content that’s actually relevant and that moves car culture forward. In fact, avoiding this behavior is a cornerstone of this website.

We understand that this approach may not be all that click-bait worthy. But when the automotive media industry at-large is reading stories from MC&T, perhaps our content is good enough for you, too. And perhaps we can save a few mid-engine Corvettes in the process of reading and sharing it.
