The Chevy Corvette has long been a fan favorite of car enthusiasts across America, including for our dealers here in Glenview. According to Detroit News, the eagerly awaited mid-engine Chevy Corvette C8 was seen in Arizona recently with General Motors President Mark Reuss riding shotgun. Here’s what you need to know:
- No official debut or sale dates have been announced for the Chevy Corvette C8 (but hopefully soon).
- Only the camouflaged version has been spotted, but it has been seen multiple times at different locations such as California, Colorado, and Florida.
- It’s possible that the car could debut on the 25th anniversary of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky in August.
- Sales are down for the Chevy Corvette C7, which indicates that many buyers are holding out for the Chevy Corvette C8.
- The idea of a mid-engine Chevy Corvette has been considered since the early 1960s and then finally gained some steam in 2007 and put on hold during the recession.
- The new model has a different engine location and many other changes from previous models.
- It’s expected to have a rather affordable base price, but slightly more than the current front-engine model.
- The standard engine is reportedly a push-rod 6.2-liter V-8 code-named the LT2, putting the power to wheels through a dual-clutch automatic transmission.
- This model already clearly has the signature Chevy Corvette style.
- Dealers, critics, and car buyers alike simply cannot wait!
