The 2020 Corvette C8 will be quite a departure from the illustrious history of the Chevrolet Corvette. The sequential denomination started in 1953 with the C1 Corvette Convertible, and will be dazzling fans in 2020 with the mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette C8.
American’s sportscar is also Chevrolet’s “halo” car, conjuring anyone’s mind into seeing themselves on an open road, cruising along in any year of Vette.
Prior to the July 18th debut, rumors have appeared that the next generation C8 will start out with an LT2 engine which will still be part of the 5th generation LTx small block V8 engines from GM. It does sound like the most logical route though with maybe a few other engine options down the line.
Here Is the Mid-Engined 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8’s Rear End
- An image of what appears to be the new C8 Chevrolet Corvette has leaked onto Instagram and CorvetteForum.com.
- The car has yet to be officially revealed in photos, making this our first look at it. With 10 days to go before its official reveal in California, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 appears to have broken cover, at least in part: An image of its rear end surfaced on Instagram and also was posted to Corvette Forum. The user who posted the photo provides little insight beyond a reference to having found the image on Facebook, so we don’t yet know where the car was captured or even who took the photo—but we’re fairly certain this is the first ever mid-engined Corvette that Chevrolet plans to unveil on July 18, 2019.

No, this doesn’t appear to be an even uglier Camaro-it’s the new mid-engined Corvette, spotted before its official reveal.
‘LIKE” my Instagram page: 👉 www.instagram.com/carspotterjeroen —————————————-– INFO BELOW! ————————– Today I recorded the new 2020 Corvette C8 at the Nurburgring. Chevrolet took four camoflaged Corvette’s C8 to the Nurburgring and drove them around. I tried to record the laptimes but sadly enough the Corvettes were not driving constantly and it seems that they had to adjust (Or cool down?)
After decades of speculations, concepts, and renderings, a mid-engine version of everyone’s favorite American sports car, the Chevrolet Corvette, is finally on its way. This evening, Chevrolet officially acknowledged that the car is real, and told us when we’ll see it in person.
At the end of April, Chevrolet dropped a teaser for the Corvette C8 and its mid-engined layout. The 30-second clip was filled with Easter eggs and other nods to not only Corvette’s history but also to the development history of the mid-engined Corvette – it’s not a new idea.
