  • List of MidEngine Patents

    This C8 thread is our “compendium/collector” thread to list all new potential mid engine Corvette patents. Some of the following files ones will year later turn out to be “purely defensive patents,” others actually found on a version(s) of the ME, and others will most likely not appear due to GM either rejecting them for cost, manufacturing or other issues, or they figured out better ways to accomplish the intended purpose.

    Please if you wish to comment on any one, first go to the line, and then post there. Thank you.

    But first, a special thank you to our member who has found many of these, but who wishes to not be identified, and another special thanks to CorvetteBlogger who also first identified many other of these patents for us.

    1). Active Aero Components: Two patents, first in March, 2017, second one this past August.

    a) https://www.midenginecorvetteforum.c...re-active-aero

    I hope that the suspension arm angle in fig 2 is not accurate. as shown it would produce huge” positive camber” change under bounce compression

      Often in a patent drawing, especially when one is using an earlier generation to show something, nothing In a drawing is precise (far from it) other than using an item for an illustrative purpose to get a patent on specific components, e.g., how they conceptually could work with other shown or noted items.. Precision of a drawing is the last thing of importance, as he text is often way more critical.

      Reason: One does not want to give anything away to one’s competitors in a patent application. Here for example is the drawing for the ME’s “body design” patent as linked above.

            Sean, we can tell you sure are excited. How wonderful for you to be on a pre-order list already! You are in a large group of Corvette mid engine lovers here.

            Thank you for joining us and for your first post.

              I like Conti's comment about deposits.."don't send me any money" because then he will never get any relief from folks calling about the car. I would too. In my area who knows when a dealer will get one except HENDRICK 150 miles away and I saw in 2015 a $140,000 Z06 and felt bad when I left the dealership.

                There are excellent MECF forum dealerships who will have outstanding allocation and who never have charged a penny of MSRP.

                No time to feel gloom, instead time to methodically arrange for getting your ME at sticker.

                  It is good to have these patents all in one thread for long term reference.

                  Looking forward to our ME arriving, hopefully late next summer.
