  • ME Corvette generation name

    Why is the upcoming mid engine Corvette being called the Y2 instead of the C8 in the press?

  • #2
    Good question, for Y2K was now 18 years ago. Y2 is GM’s internal code they are using for the mid engine chassis; Y1 is what GM is referring to for the front-engine C7.

      Good question which i think lead many enthusiasts to assume both a front and rear mid engine version will be built along side each other

        Isn't the portion of the VIN that designates the vehicle as being a Corvette have a Y1 or 1Y in it??? Maybe 2Y or Y2 designates the second model of the Corvette.... specifically the ME version, to distinguish it from the FE. ie: more indications that there will be two Corvette models.

          Here is the official Corvette VIN decoding (I always learn more every time I look at this).
