    Here’s the first of major info coming your way tonight on the 7.18.19 C8’s reveal.

    The Mid-Engined 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Is Real, GM Confesses, and It Will Debut July 18

    Finally.

    By JOEY CAPPARELLA
    APR 11, 2019
    Corvette
    • It's officially official: the next-generation 2020 Chevrolet Corvette will make the switch to a mid-engined layout.
    • Like the many spy shots we've seen of the car, this photo shows a prototype of the new Corvette C8 with camouflage—but this time, it's coming directly from General Motors.
    • The new Corvette C8 makes its debut July 18, 2019, and will go on sale by the end of the year.

    At long last, General Motors is admitting that the Corvette will reach another generation and has confirmed that the car—yes, the real, bona fide 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8—will make its official debut July 18. We've spilled plenty of ink (and pixels) about the upcoming C8 for the past five years (not to mention our relentless and breathless coverage of the idea of a mid-engined Corvette spanning several decades), and now Chevrolet is finally ready to talk about it as well.

    While spy photos showing the C8's low-slung silhouette and vastly different proportions have circulated on the internet for years now, what you're looking at is the first real photo of the car that Chevrolet has supplied—and the first time the company has even acknowledged the existence of what might be the auto industry's worst-kept secret. GM CEO Mary Barra is making the announcement at the Siller Foundation charity gala in New York.

    While Chevrolet is keeping mum on any specifications for the next few months, we know plenty about the C8's powertrains and have even seen glimpses of its interiorthanks to our intrepid spy photographers.

    This first Corvette C8 model we will see in July is the base Corvette Stingray, which will kick off the lineup. Initially, the C8 will use an upgraded version of the current car's pushrod 6.2-liter V-8, which we suspect will be upgraded to produce somewhere around 500 horsepower. The engine will also be renamed LT2 to reflect its new location in the car. A dual-clutch seven-speed automatic gearbox supplied from Tremec is slated to be the only transmission choice—unfortunate news for #savethemanuals diehards like us.

    Multiple high-performance variants are set to follow in quick succession, including Z06, ZR1, and a range-topping hybrid that may use the Zora name. The current thinking is that the Z06 will have a a DOHC 5.5-liter V-8 with a flat-plane crankshaft, while the ZR1 will add twin turbochargers to that engine, and the Zora will get the twin-turbo V-8 and an electric motor in the front axle to cement its place as the most powerful C0rvette, with a combined power rating that could approach 1000 horsepower.

    We hear Chevrolet will hold the line on pricing for the 2020 Corvette, despite its monumental philosophical shift and abundance of new technology. Expect the new Corvette to cost around $62,000 to start, an increase of around $5000 compared to the C7 Stingray's starting price of $56,995. There's no official on-sale date yet, but given that Chevrolet is already rolling out a "Next-Generation Corvette" page on its consumer website, we feel certain that the order books will open by the end of 2019 at the latest.

      Is there an event on 7/18 where they would do the reveal or do you think it will be a standalone event?

                          So when do you think the ME will replace the FE in competition events? Soon after July 18 or will they campaign the C7R for the entire racing season?

                          Any bets on a lap time at the Ring after July 18 ??

                              BY: CHRISTOPHER SMITH After literally decades of anticipation, Chevrolet's mid-engine supercar is almost here.

                              We’ve spent the last four years talking about rumors, fussing over spy photos, and digging deeper to try and suss out the future for the long-awaited mid-engined Chevrolet Corvette. Today, however, the news isn’t about rumors or speculation. Finally, after years of teasing and decades of anticipation, General Motors has confirmed the C8 is real. More importantly, it will be revealed to the world on July 18, which is just over three months from now.
                              The announcement comes almost out-of-the-blue. The C8 rumor mill went into overdrive this morning on leaks about something Corvette-related happening in New York. It turns out those rumors were true – at least with regards to official information coming from GM. There could still be some more information and photos to trickle down through the various channels, so we'll keep our eyes peeled. C8 Spy Photos Galore:

                              There’s still much we don’t know about the upcoming Chevrolet supercar, not the least of which being how it will actually look. Though the prototype revealed here wears a thin camouflage wrap, we can still see some bulky filler panels beneath it all. We've often turned to MidEngineCorvetteForum.com and its forum members for some stunning renderings on how the supercar might look, and we must say it looks particularly sexy without a roof.

                              At some point in the Corvette's future will come more aggressive models with higher horsepower, though we don't know exactly when that will occur just yet. Current thinking is that the C8 will launch with a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 producing upwards of 460 horsepower. There's been talk of higher-horsepower models with up to 1,000 horsepower actually twisting frames on prototypes, but we've also heard that the strength issues – like the electrical issues, have been addressed.

                              At least now we have official confirmation that the car exists. All will be revealed July 18.
