Default Its official - Mid Engine C8 will be revealed in July

Quote:
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.
Quote:
While spy photos showing the C8's low-slung silhouette and vastly different proportions have circulated on the internet for years now, what you're looking at are the first real photos of the car that Chevrolet has supplied—and the first time the company has even acknowledged the existence of what might be the auto industry's worst-kept secret.


Quote:
This first Corvette C8 model we will see in July is the base Corvette Stingray, which will kick off the lineup. Initially, the C8 will use an upgraded version of the current car's pushrod 6.2-liter V-8, which we suspect will be upgraded to produce somewhere around 500 horsepower. The engine will also be renamed LT2 to reflect its new location in the car. A dual-clutch seven-speed automatic gearbox supplied from Tremec is slated to be the only transmission choice—unfortunate news for #savethemanuals diehards like us.

Multiple high-performance variants are set to follow in quick succession, including Z06, ZR1, and a range-topping hybrid that may use the Zora name. The current thinking is that the Z06 will have a a DOHC 5.5-liter V-8 with a flat-plane crankshaft, while the ZR1 will add twin turbochargers to that engine, and the Zora will get the twin-turbo V-8 and an electric motor in the front axle to cement its place as the most powerful C0rvette, with a combined power rating that could approach 1000 horsepower.

I hope they make that hemeroid of a side mirror smaller but looks pretty good overall.

2. That it sells more than an Acura NSX.

Sweet! I just Hope they don't have the people who designed the new Silverado HDs working on this. Chevy has been putting out some pretty bad front ends lately

interesting what powertrain the top models will get. It will have so much better traction being mid engine car then the current vettes . TT V8 with DCT would be a sweet setup

I think it will easily beat the NSX. I'm expecting it to challenge the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini.

If it was engineered by a human, a human will crack it, guaranteed.
