THE LATEST TEASER SHOTS OF THE MID-ENGINE CORVETTE SHOW MORE PRODUCTION CLUES!Date: 2017-10-12
The Chevy Corvette C8 'Zora' in camouflage was spotted testing near Cadillac, Michigan on Wednesday – and the spy shots are giving us more production clues!
This is pretty far from the company's proving grounds in Milford – which means that the prototype mid-engine Corvette's must be doing a road-trip test run.
The latest teaser shots show us a true mid-engine look with a shorter hood and a long, sloping rear end (which we assume is where the engine sits). The shape is quite similar to a Ferrari 458/488, which foretells quite a lot for the upcoming supercar.
When it comes to engines, there are many options for this next world beater – the 650-hp LT4 comes to mind, but a simpler LT1 with 500-hp could be suitable as well.
The other big question is the price. We wonder if it will be a budget mid-engine lightning bolt, or a nuclear-powered track monster a La Porsche 911 GT2? This difference could be between $100K and $200K – a big leap.
We're hoping to the new 'Vette at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, and are excited for more information to become available.
