2020 Chevrolet Corvette - Latest Photos & Specs!

As you know, an all-new eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette (C8) is coming and the complete silence of General Motors is now fueling a host of rumors and questions. In order to give you the very latest information, here's what we found out around the web.

 

Unless the manufacturer tries to deceive us by preparing a completely different car, the camouflaged prototype that has been seen in the last few months is probably the very first image of the mid-engine Corvette.

 

Carscoops spy photographers have seen the "Stingray" decal in the center of the cabin, which seems to indicate that this name will be kept for the basic variant. However, GM has also registered for other names like Manta Ray, E-Ray and especially the Zora name in honor of "Corvette's father", Zora Arkus-Duntov, who had also remembered by thinking of a Corvette with a central engine more than 60 years ago.

 

According to GM carmaker, the C8 Corvette will come with a double-overhead-camshaft V8 - either to replace or complete the small-block LT1 V8. In addition, the car is offered with a dual clutch gearbox and an automated manual clutch (the range currently includes a conventional eight-speed automatic and a seven-speed manual).

 

A 1,000-horsepower hybrid powertrain has been mentioned and since GM seems to look to all-electric zero-emissions models in the future, an electric Corvette also is considered.

 

As for the price of this 2020 C8 Chevrolet Corvette, the experienced Corvette journalist, Don Sherman, told GM that he expects the C8 to show a modest rise in the base version, a prediction similar to the one made by former GM executive Bob Lutz last fall. Apparently, some Chevrolet dealers are now already accepting $ 1,000 deposits.

 

OK, so how much will we have to wait to get our hands on this new Corvette? Several sources argue that the new mid-engine Corvette will be unveiled, not at a motor show, but at a separate event this summer. This could be done, for example, as part of the celebration for the 25th anniversary of the National Corvette Museum. Production is expected to begin in December for the 2020 model year and the first copies will be delivered in February.

 

That's all we found out on the web at this moment, stay tuned for an official announcement from GM.
