  • 2019 ME Debut by Jalopnik

    The mid engine Corvette is going to be finally seen this year. (That was for those who have been pulling a Rip Van Winkle the last twenty years). The other three of special note are the Porsche Mission E (Taycan), the Toyota Supra and the Ford Bronco.

    Good news: 2019 is going to have some of the most anticipated car reveals of the decade, so let’s try to keep track of exactly what we should expect.

    Let’s start off with the four cars we’ll finally get to see that have been building the hype for the years, if not decades. Probably the most anticipated car expected in 2019 would have to be the final realization of the dream that is a mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette. Mid-Engine Corvette

    After years of concepts and rumors, we refused to believe that GM was actually doing the **** thing and building a mid-engine Corvette until we saw it for ourselves. Now, it seems like we see it every couple of weeks as more and more photos of it driving around emerge.

    And 2019 should finally be the year we see it in a color other than heavy camouflage. Maybe. Reports indicate it’s already been delayed six months to overhaul its electrical system. Come on GM. You’re so close to the finish after over 50 years of teasing. Show us what you’ve got.

      This was real back in early/mid June, so maybe it was real and already been fixed. Or maybe that was their first clue that there was an electrical problem yet fixing it is only 85% done...

      First picture thanks to CorvetteBlogger; second one, taken later that day, thanks to GM Authority.

      Two things we absolutely know:

      1) We sure do not definitively know anything about its electrical system status today.

      2) GM who does know, is not talking. Darn.

        I guess the original concept of having an alternating current electrical system didn't work out. At least for cars, Edison was right. Direct current is the way to go.

          If the corvette was pioneering a new 48 volt electrical system and there actually was an issue with it....GM would never have allowed that story to leak to gm authority...

          that electrical story has got to be a smoke screen..

          jmo and I know less than nothing about the c8 ...

            I hope they are going the way of a 48V system, That would be a giant leap for running all of the systems in the car. Very easy to step down voltages to still utilize all previous options as well without redesign of components.

              I like that with 48V, an electric supercharger needs just a few HP compared to the one on the ZR1 needing 100 HP at full throttle. Better emissions, better fuel economy, and better power at about $800/car. That is an investment I would happily make.

                corvettes tend to lead technology for the corporation..

                  I agree, All that "electrical problems" are BS stories made up by GM Authority for personal gains. GM has not even acknowledge such car exists.
