The mid-engine Corvette is only days away from its official debut and amongst all of the stats, Chevy's marketing team will tout across every form of media the only thing that matters is the price.
The Corvette's biggest strength against the competition has traditionally been its price. With the ability to offer world-class performance for affordable prices the Corvette tapped into a market unserved by European manufacturers.
However, in the quest for better performance, Chevy has decided to turn the front-engined Corvette into an exotic mid-engined sports car. That mid-engined design may improve performance but prices will be on the rise as well.
This new layout puts the Corvette into a precarious situation. Will customers be willing to shell out more cash for a new mid-engined sports car from Chevy? Or will the new higher prices push customers to established entry-level exotic?
