    Exclamation GM Approves C8 Mid-Engine Corvette for 2019!

    Just in from one of our sources to the Corvette Action Center, apparently the mid-engine C8 Corvette is a go and you heard here first!

    The mid engine was signed off on last week, a 2019 with 3 or 4 models, top of the line being the “Zora” and I swear rumor has it 1500 HP. They will try to compete with the Ferraris and Lambos (an probably at their prices) ……anyway it will be debuted at the Detroit Auto Show in Jan 18.

    They will also definitely run the C7 thru 2019, simultaneously.
    They go on to say that the unveiling of the mid-engine was for engineers only and it was very well received.

    If any of this is true, what we heard and posted a year ago looks like it may become reality with the C7 and mid-engine being built at the same time for a short period of time.

    While it may be unrealistic that the top-of-the-line Zora will come out with 1500 HP, it is possible that the engine may be engineered to handle up to 1500 HP.

    Hang on tight folks. The Corvette world is about to get a whole lot more interesting!

    Hopefully, GM will require a mandatory parachute option: 1500hp Corvette running on the street!!! - YouTube Same as this 1500 HP Corvette

    At 1500, my guess would be low 8s at 170 MPH in the quarter..
    Whoosh, and blur
