Every once in a while, there is some sort of car that stirs up a bunch of hype, giving people something to talk about as a machine that is new and different ends up coming out and perhaps changing the performance landscape as we know it. If you haven’t guessed at this point, we’re talking, of course, about the eighth generation of Chevrolet Corvette, the car that is slated to take a Corvette as we know it and finally come through on all of the promises that we have been getting year after year of finally being able to see this thing with a mid-engine configuration.
Now, after all these years of being teased about the potential for such a platform coming out and never seeing it, we have become a little bit skeptical of the whole concept. However, if seeing is believing then you have to have some faith based on the test mules that General Motors has been spotted out and about in, indicating that we will probably see a mid-engine Corvette before we know it. As you can imagine, anticipation is very high and there’s a lot of chatter about the details of such a platform and what all it will entail.
If you follow down in the video below, you’ll be able to check out a couple of the most recent spy shots that have spotted the car back out on the street once again after the news that the electrical system within had to be rework. Does this mean that the next generation of Corvette is back on track for a 2020 release? Is this even a Corvette at all? All of those questions and more are sure to be answered in time but for now, we can certainly appreciate all the excitement that comes with the speculation of trying to figure this thing out.
