Mid-engine Corvette may debut in May 2019 at a special event.December 21, 2018
One of the most anticipated new products in the world of sports cars is the updated Chevrolet Corvette with a mid-engine layout. According to new information, the car will miss all car dealerships and will be presented at a special event.
Earlier it was assumed that the debut of the Chevy Corvette will be held at the Detroit Auto Show. At least Chevrolet is still not listed in the NAIAS press conference for 2019. The delay arose due to the difficulties encountered by the company with the electric system of the car. In addition, there was fresh information from GM Authority, informing about the company’s pass and the New York Auto Show.
According to insider information from people who are in close proximity to the company’s affairs, they announced the possible debut of the Chevy Corvette C8 not earlier than May 2019 as part of their own event.
According to General Motors Vice President Bob Lutz, the model can get a price tag a little more than the current version of the C7. And the most “charged” version will appear only by 2020-2021, and their price tag will be more than $ 100,000. And Lutz is sure that the price tag will not scare away customers, and due to its capabilities it will be able to compete in the supercar segment.
At the moment there is no information about the future model, all the details about the design, technical characteristics, and also the complete sets will be disclosed only before the debut.
