Summer is winding down, and fall is just around the corner. Seems like a great time to head to the beach for a little sun and surf, if you’re able. Unfortunately for this C8 Corvette, its driver decided to take the mid-engine sports car all the way to the water, and, surprise surprise, it got stuck.
Coming to us from social media, the video is only a few seconds long, but captures the situation perfectly. The video appears as though it was taken from the cab of a pickup truck, which drives up on the stuck C8 Corvette as it struggles to free itself from the deep, wet sand. A large group of people are seen milling around as a few others push and pull on the Corvette’s body panels.
As we can see, the rear wheels of the C8 Corvette are buried several inches under the sand. As the driver stabs as the throttle, we see the alloys scoop up several clumps of the stuff, burying the wheel deeper and deeper. It seems as though this tactic has been tried more than once, likely with exactly the same results.
As the camera moves away, we see a group of people pushing on the front end of the C8 Corvette, trying to dislodge it from its hole. Funny enough, the pickup with the individual taking the video simply drives off, rather than help. It looks like the tide might be coming in as well.

This poor C8 Corvette never really stood a chance. It’s kind of wild to think anyone would be silly enough to take their brand new sports car to the beach, but as it turns out, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen this kind of situation. In fact, back in April of 2022, we covered another viral video showing yet another C8 Corvette stuck in Texas, and the solution wasn’t exactly pretty. Check out that video to see what we mean.
