        The key to something we've been waiting decades for.
        BY BOZI TATAREVIC
        NOV 28, 2018


        Details about the upcoming mid-engined Corvette have been slowly trickling out for the last few months. The latest proof that it's on the way soon comes in the form of an FCC application for a new key fob by Huf Huelsbeck & Fuerst. It appears to show the outline of the mid-engined vehicle along with a Corvette logo that is placed on the back of it.

        FCC FILING

        The picture of the fob appears to show standard button for lock, unlock, and remote start, but the interesting parts are buttons that appear to show a front and rear trunk along with a power roof. This fob also appears to be almost identical to the Cadillac key fob that was leaked to Jalopnik a few weeks ago, which may add fuel to the rumor that there will be a Cadillac version of the mid-engined car as well.


        Digging deeper into the application we see what appears to be confirmation that the mid-engined Corvette will be a 2020 model year vehicle, as the description in one of the test reports states that the part is a “GM MY20 B1 KEYFOB.” Further down in the same report we see a selection that states that the sample revision of the part is “Pre-Production.” That makes the production case of the car a little stronger since it is one step up from the “Prototype” sample revision.

        Pictures of the internal circuit board further confirm that the fob is destined for a General Motors vehicle as the GM logo is directly stamped on it. The diagrams also appear to show an indication that the new Corvette is planned for worldwide release as the fob displays markings for regulatory agencies in Europe, Taiwan, and Japan in addition to those for the US and Canada.


        In addition to the fob, Huf has also filed an application for the receiver module that will be in the car and according to the label diagram it already has a GM part number of 13529177 assigned to it. Most of the details on the receiver are still listed as confidential but the test report once again shows that it is destined for a 2020 vehicle as it is listed as a “GM MY20 RF Receiver” in the product description on the test report.


        The mid-engine Corvette has certainly been rendered and speculated for decades but regulatory paperwork with a model year listed has not been uncovered in the past to the best of our knowledge so it seems like we might finally see it revealed next year if it is indeed destined to be a 2020 model year vehicle.

        So many questions about the ME right now, but the answers are nicely, though slowly, coming out.

          They have markings for Japan on them,
          Does this indicate that they will be RHD being that this country drives RHD cars???

              It sure does, and the fact that it comes from an FCC document, for after all a key fob is defined as, and must be approved by, the FCC, certainly puts the photoshop theorists, needing a brand new theory.
              Looking forward to our ME arriving.

                I noticed that too. It could mean that the fob will just be used in Japan (perhaps on a Cadillac coupe like the one we saw leaked from patents earlier in the year) but I would say this definitely adds to the potential that a RHD variant could become available.

                    We now have a link to the FCC site, so folks can surf away on its many pages about the key fob; thanks to Jeff V. for finding this link:

                    Here is just one of many screen prints available there.

                        We sure are, not that you and many of us doubted that. However, might this change the mind of a couple of previous naysayers?

                          John there were tons of speculations that the car was being pushed back to 2021, because of this current GM situation going on. Clearly not happening.

                              I have this deep down feeling GM is about to BLOW OUR FREAKING MINDS very soon with not 1... but 2 Mid engine cars both Chevrolet and Cadillac.
