2020 Mid-Engine Vette

Wow! This thing is gonna be awesome! 0-60mph in <3 seconds, dual clutch trans, < $60k.. So many bells and whistles and fit and finish of a production car. This could be everything I want the GTM to be. After the reveal yesterday, I am falling hard in love with the corvette again! I'm really wanting to see what the Z06 version brings to the table in a year or so. I may have to get one.

On the other hand, this stuff could be awesome for the GTM as well. I really want to know the possibilities of swapping the C8 drivetrain into a GTM now that it has a legit transaxle.

It's tough for me to believe that they could keep the price under $60k? I'll believe it when I see it.

Love the placement of the tablet screen. Makes me want to do a similar setup when Tino finishes my system hes working on.

YUCK! What is the matter with these designers ? The C-7 was, and is, THE perfect body design.

I'll second the C-7 as the best looking Vette. The C-8 just doesn't have any________ (fill in blank).

And a different opinion...

I like it. Didn't like the C7 at all.

Zora is finally smiling.

Too jagged for my tastes almost looks angry, too much Japanese influence. Give me comfort with great handling, I don't need 0-60 in under 3 seconds. Compare this design with a Aston Martin and I'll take the Aston. Just wish I could get the Aston for under 60K.

I have never been a Vette fan but I like the last few versions and I think this is the best one yet. I don't ever see me getting one but I do like it.

Owned this one for 28 years, had no interest in any of them till now.


C2


C8

What I would/will order from the configuration page when one of my leases runs out next summer. Z51-2LT Out the door around $71,000. Interesting the hissy fit some of the guys on the Corvette forum are throwing with the C7 now being last years model.



Think it looks a lot more like $300,000 Italian than anything the Japanese build

Wow, nice '67, Kevin. I agree that the C8 really has stepped it up several notches and looks more like what a supercar "should" now. In terms of looks, I love how they brought the corvette into supercar territory, rather than trying to bring a supercar to the vette (if that makes any sense haha).

I've been reading the corvetteforum as well. Definitely some entertainment material there!

Thanks, Thought I would do a Convertible match also to see if they copied the Japanese or Italians.

There is a reason all the world's supercars are mid engine designs. Now Chevy has one. And it's way cheaper than everybody else's. Prepare to see the supercar scene Americanized.

I had the same thought. In a couple of years after the wrecks start pilling up, there are going to be some transaxle or transaxel / motor combos coming out. This will open up some really interesting mid-engine cars to be built.

Yup! Would love to have that drivetrain for my GTM! I'm very curious to see if it would be close enough to fit our application. From the pictures, the trans looks very compact, which gives me hope that it may be a real possibility!

Also, imagine how fast it would take a GTM from 0-60 being 1000 pounds lighter than the C8 that will get there in under 3 seconds.
