Chevy salesman confirms mid-engine Corvette is real

The mid-engine Corvette is coming, maybe before the new year.

A Chevrolet salesman who attended a trader meeting in Las Vegas said he saw official photos of the eighth-generation Vette, describing him as the cross between a Corvette ZR1 and a Lotus. The ZR1 is the hottest Corvette on sale, with 755 horsepower and a claimed 211 -mph top speed. Soon, it may not be.

The C8 Vette is indeed real. We know it’s going, and we are aware( largely) how it’ll look. Test mules of elongated Corvettes have been spotted several times since last year, and the rumors of a Corvette with its V-8 engine mounted behind the driver have been brewing for much longer( decades, actually, since the Astro II concept in 1968 ). Speculation has been rampant, and there isn’t anything official other than to expect the most precise-handling, agile, and exotic Corvette ever stimulated, but crucially, offered at a modest price.

Expect the production auto to debut sometime later this year, with marketings beginning in 2019.
