2020 Chevrolet Corvette Mid-Engine

Apr 15, 2019

Though the rumors have been flying for some time now, the folks at the American car manufacturer, Chevrolet, have finally confirmed that they’ll be putting an end to the production of front-engine Corvettes. Never fear — they’re not killing it off. Rather, they’re revamping it into a mid-engine supercar set for a 2020 release.

So the story goes, Chevrolet is taking aim at a higher class of competitor — like Ferrari and Porsche — with the upcoming release. And while a confirmed mid-engine design is certainly a step in that direction, other information is fairly sparse. If the rumors are to be believed, however, the base model should be packed with a 5.5L V8 engine with a baseline horsepower figure of 600. Of course, it’s also being said that higher-level trims, including a hybrid AWD option, could figure somewhere in the 1,000-horsepower range. It’s an interesting and bold move that, if executed properly, could result in this being the best Corvette we’ve ever seen. It’s set to make its official debut on July 18th.
