Khodrocar - While it has yet to receive one spoken word of confirmation from Chevrolet, the spy photos don’t lie: A mid-engine Corvette is probably on its way.
These spy shots give us our first glimpse of the interior, as well as small hints of the shape that will most likely be revealed at the 2018 Detroit auto show. Clearly, the doors open conventionally, and everything about the curves scream mid-engine. Even the larger rear brake rotor size hints at more weight being further back in the car — another mid-engine tip-off.
These photos are more detailed than before and reveal what looks to be a car further along in the production process. The front of the car looks decidedly un-Corvette like, but the rear certainly reminds us of the C7. Not looking over a mile of hood and still being in a "Corvette” sure will be weird, but we can’t wait to see what Chevy can do with a seriously dynamic chassis.
This decades-in-the-making supercar? is dangerously close to being reality now. A small-block V8 with something around 500 hp or more could make this thing competitive with most budget supercars out there now. Obviously, a massive price hike above the normal front-engined Vette is to be expected, but a cheap McLaren/Ferrari alternative sounds great in our book.
