Mid-Engine Corvette: 7/18/2019 [C8.R 2020]

#79

I’ve seen some of these renderings and the front is beautiful, but the ass shouldn’t see the light of day.

So this might look like a McLaren :thinking:

The second issue is a structural distortion of the aluminum spaceframe experienced during testing a prototype equipped with the 900-1000 horsepower twin-turbo V-8. The twist in back was enough to fracture the glass hatch covering the engine.

Kerbeck Chevrolet in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the country’s largest Corvette seller, has begun taking refundable $1000 deposits to hold a place in line for a C8. This dealer is also offering C7 discounts ranging from 12-17 percent. Clearly, the countdown to launch has begun and the wait for mid-engine Corvettes on the road is down to a matter of months.

I wonder if last-gen FR Corvettes are going to be a classic some day.

I’m wondering if that 12-17% discount is going to drive the resale price down on those already sold.

I was surprised at this. I thought at some point they had talked about selling both side by side for a while. I’m glad that they’re not, in my opinion it is getting silly how close some of the other GM products are in performance to the vette.

These wheels suck bad. Same with the new Supra wheels.

I can’t wait to see it without camo because this just… I don’t know. The vents on the sides just doesn’t seem to flow nicely in my opinion. But with a solid color I could see it being better. I’ll also have to look back at other angles.

Like it or not, the rumored 1000hp version is going to destroy the current performance benchmarks and I’m sure a lot of supercar developers are very concerned. I wouldn’t be surprised if a bunch of automotive companies immediately purchase one and reverse engineer it.

I base this on no knowledge at all, just speculation.
