GM has officially confirmed that the C8 generation of the Corvette is to be a mid-engine design
Long rumored, along with hundreds of ‘spy’ shots of the Corvette, it is now official (from GM) that indeed there is a mid-engined design C8 Corvette is coming our way. It is expected that the 2020 Corvette will be available to order towards the end of 2019.
As Caranddriver.com confirmed,
It’s officially official: the next-generation 2020 Chevrolet Corvette will make the switch to a mid-engined layout.
Like the many spy shots we’ve seen of the car, these photos show a prototype of the new Corvette C8 with camouflage—but this time, it’s coming directly from General Motors.
The new Corvette C8 makes its debut July 18, 2019, and will go on sale by the end of the year.
At long last, General Motors is admitting that the Corvette will reach another generation and has confirmed that the car—yes, the real, bona fide 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8—will make its official debut July 18. We’ve spilled plenty of ink (and pixels) about the upcoming C8 for the past five years (not to mention our relentless and breathless coverage of the idea of a mid-engined Corvette spanning several decades), and now Chevrolet is finally ready to talk about it as well.
GM’s announcement has been a much-anticipated announcement; especially after the hundreds if not thousands of photos showing the camouflaged C8 driving around town, on the tracks, and parked in fast-food restaurant parking lots!
Every major automotive publication is sure to have many pages in their publications and websites dedicated to the 2020 Corvette Mid-Engine Stingray (which is said to be the base model for the new C8s). Stay tuned for more breaking news!
