    Midengine 2020 Corvette C8

    GM has been toying with a Mid-Engined Corvette for decades. Could this finally be a reality.......hard core front engined Vette owners won't be happy...........

    Is it coincidence that so many cars have Noble body cues..............

    It's happening for several reasons not the least of which is to stay competitive at lemans, the bowling green plant has suspended public tours for 1.5 years back at the beginning of the year which most believe is the amount of time it takes to re tool a facory of that size to build an new design vehicle. It's exciting that Chevrolet is building a supercar for normal income Americans to buy (suck it Ford). The front mid engined is old hat and the people holding Chevy to that design are holding back the cars performance and sales. The old guard is dying off, I wouldn't have a corvette because my dad has had several, the mid engined is my generations vette. Just hope they don't go crazy with the price point. To far over $100k and most of us make the argument just to push on to a mclaren 570s or something more exotic. This will make a great everyday supercar.

    Being a true blue Ford loyalist I agree that the second gen Ford GT is out of reach for most people along with all of the ridiculous stipulations to even be "considered" by Ford to be eligible to buy one (unless of course your name is Jay Leno). Providing a somewhat affordable exotic is great for the Corvette as a halo car and may force other manufacturers to follow suit making it a true enthusiasts market re-enforcing the old saying...."Win on Sunday, sell on Monday"...................
