“I’ve never seen so much buzz around Corvette” – Dan Pund, Car & Driver

For decades, the automotive world has been waiting. Godfather of the Corvette, Zora Arkus-Duntov, and his team built the first mid-engine Corvette prototype back in 1964. Unfortunately, the prototypes he & his team built never made it past the testing phase. Zora’s dream has lived on throughout the years and has left us all wondering when it would become a reality.  Sadly, Zora passed away in 1996 but not before being inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame and leaving behind a lasting legacy.

Talk of a mid-engine Corvette began circulating heavily in 2014.  Prototypes were spotted back in 2016 at Milford Proving Grounds. Finally, in April 2019, after years of speculation GM finally confirmed that a mid-engine Corvette was in the works.  The 2020 Corvette C8 will make its debut on July 18th and you can watch it live with the rest of the world through a livestream. 

Until then, these spy photos will have to do. Just last Tuesday a photo was leaked appearing to show the rear bumper in its entirety. 

“In June I saw the C8 June in Detroit and was blown away. It’s exterior design is stunning and the interior fit and finish is second to none. As a Signature Corvette dealer, we are thrilled to have the C8 coming to our dealership.” – Josh Cummins, President at Dan Cummins Auto Group

So, what’s the price tag on this long awaited Corvette?

Good question. There’s no official word yet, but several sources estimate that the C8 will start around $62,000.
