More Proof That the Mid-Engine Corvette Is Real

Photos give us our best look yet at the rumored mid-engine Corvette

3y ago

It's one of the worst kept secrets in the automotive industry, but until Chevy officially confirms the existence of a mid-engine Corvette, all we can do is treat everything as a rumor. Yes, even when the proof is staring you right in the face.

Jake Vandermoon and Josh Busenbark caught these pictures of what is clearly a mid-engine Corvette in Cadillac, Michigan. Development must be going pretty well if this test mule is actually out and about on public roads, so let's all get on the hype train.

Even under all the camo, a number of details are crystal clear. For starters, we're clearly looking at a car with mid-engine proportions, and this car is very clearly a Corvette judging by the front end. We can see a side intake behind the door and honestly not much else.

Performance-wise we know virtually nothing, but don't be surprised to see a V8 under the engine cover. GM has trademarked "E-Ray," so I wouldn't be shocked if it was for this car and involved some form of hybrid powertrain option.

  • On the Grand Tour Nation facebook page the article is headed with "Will this blow Ferrari out of the water?" What I want to know is, has anyone at Ferrari even heard of Chevy/GM? Lol

  • I believe the Corvette has been mid engine since 1984.

    • The corvette has never been mid engined that's why this is a big deal

    • Nope. Front engine rear drive it's entire run up until now. They've veen hinting at something like this over the past year or so. Now it seems to be in its testing phase.

  • i have alot of concerns about them. building a mid engine vett! not smart corvette has been forward mounted engine for many years why take a great thing and change it ? it's just going to make it even more difficult to get one now not to mention you don't change something that has been around for over 60 years and then some . I personally love driving the loose poorly constructed American rwd with lots of major power and barely any grip at all

    • I assume they’ll keep the front engined Corvette to compete with the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger, but to be competitive with other major companies like Ford and their GT, they need to step up their game.

    • I hope heartedly agree completely if of the even wish to have an ice cubes chance in hell then they have a long way to go before they can make the corvette cost 150k
