  • [Jalopnik] The Mid-Engine Corvette Has Arrived At The Nürburgring


    All photos
    Photo: Stefan Baldauf

    It may be Labor Day in the U.S., but the Corvette team is skipping the holiday to test a certain prototype at the world’s most intense race track. Here’s the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette arriving at a testing center near the Nürburging, and with less camouflage than we’ve seen previously.

    We got a tip that the new mid-engine Corvette would be doing some testing at the ‘Ring this week, and that tip turned out to be right. It definitely appears to be the street car, too, not the C8.R we caught running at Road America earlier this summer.

    Up until now, most of the mid-engine Corvette mules we’ve seen have been draped in heavy black wrappings, but from these photos we can make out a lot more, including the aggressive intakes, a ZR1-ish front bumper, and the familiar-looking tail lamps and headlights.

    We’ve heard the mid-engine Corvette—a layout that’s been teased and toyed with and has almost happened for decades now—will get a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 as well as a twin-turbo V8 option, and possibly with a hybrid variant at the top of the range.

    More on this as we get it from the ‘Ring this week.

    For a base car, it is nice but it is safe to say I will wait for the higher performance model. This car won’t be expensive as many people indicated. Maybe $5k more or so than current model. I am a bit disappointed as to how the front of this car looks. In profile, the front looks extremely short. I was afraid the car was going to be huge...that is not the case at all, but the front looks out of proportion (too stubby).

      And from the rear, it looks “leaner” than many expected too.

            Only thing i dont like is the Camaro-like rear... Hope that from now until the reveal they transform it into a more exotic and unique look.

              I am sure that GM has more up its sleeve. Looking still like placeholder tail lights, that the spoiler is still deliberately made bulbous in the center, and more.

                Agree. And once we’re able to see the contrasting vents and body lines, that rear fascia will look much better.

                  i can hear at tomorrow’s morning GM’s staff meeting of the Corvette team, laughing their asses off at our posts, not condescendingly, but from a tone of...

                      Thank you very much Cobra502. Here are the key new pictures from that link, including our first of the interior (but that is still very disguised).

                        I suspect that without the camo hiding the 3 dimensionality of the rear fascia it will have a family resemblance to the Camaro, but still look considerably different. The Camo completely hides the deeply recessed vents at the left and right sides, for example, which I think will change the look dramatically.

                          And this; still more padding to be later removed.

                            She looks a bit intimidating even with the placeholder headlights!
