PostHeaderIcon Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Set To Happen, Hybrid Model Could Be Part Of Next-Gen Variants

For 63 years, the Chevrolet Corvette has followed a tried-and-tested front-engined, rear-wheel drive layout. But if the long-held rumors about the Corvette C8 end up being true, the American sports car’s next iteration could be in line for a massive tradition-shifting shakeup. According to Car and Driver, the switch to a mid-engine layout for the eight-generation Corvette is already certain as Chevrolet begins transitioning the sports car into more exotic and potentially more lucrative markets.

Official details about the car are still scarce at this point, but C&D quotes what it says to be an “impeccable source,” is reporting that the Corvette C8 will receive a number of mid-engine powertrains over the first few years of its life. The first of these engines is the current pushrod V-8 that will be tuned to deliver as much as 500 horsepower. That engine will be used in the 2019 Corvette, which is expected to make its debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. As soon as it hits the market, that version will carry a base price of around $80,000.

From there, Chevrolet will shift to a more powerful mid-engine V-8 that will make its debut with the 2020 Corvette in the same auto show a year later. No mention was made on how much power that version of the Vette will get, but it has been tipped to cost at least $100,000. A hybrid Corvette, dubbed the E-Ray Corvette, is also in the works. All indications point to it receiving the same “new” V-8, but with an extra electric motors powering the two front wheels.

As for the current-generation Corvette C7, that model will still be produced until volume production starts for the Corvette C8. But before the C7 rides off into the sunset, Chevrolet is planning to send it out on a high note with a series of special edition models that may include the ZR1 variant.

Once the shift to a mid-engine layout is complete, don’t be surprised if the Corvette C8, and all the iterations that follow, starts to set its sights on competing against some of the finest sports cars and supercars in the market today.
