The 8th generation Corvette has a front trunk, sometimes referred to as a frunk.
Despite the name change the frunk is still required to have an internal release mechanism in case your kid climbs into the frunk and gets themselves locked inside.

And an auditor found that the button stops working once the car enters "sleep" mode which is roughly 10 minutes after the engine is shut off.…keep reading article "The Corvette's Frunk Doesn't Meet Latch Safety Standards"

At 780 miles brought to the dealer because there was vibrating above 35 mph. dealer found that the left rear rim was bent and the right tire was defective. they refused to cover the rim under warranty and charged $300. they did cover the right tire. the car now has 2500 miles on it and i believe there are bent rims again.
This is a known problem with the Grand Sport wheels and was never divulged by GM or the dealership. I am looking for compensation from either dealership or GM ... This tire was leaking and the dealer knew it. I have contacted them but received no response. If this continues to be a problem with the other wheels, I'll be forced to spend $3000 on after market wheels. This sucks.

Hoods are required to have a secondary latch that must be physically operated to open completely.
