It's a long road to the start of the central machine Chevrolet Corvette (some of which may even say decades), but at least now we know we won't have to wait much longer for the See C8. On its Instagram page today, Chevrolet put a picture of a prototype corvette mid-engine motors in print wearing a prominent number set on the side: 07.18.19. That's a GM way to confirm that we'll see Vette the central machine on 18 July this year.
Chevy was also claiming that Corvette was in the middle engine in his Instagram Stories, with one video even short clip of the exhaust note. The final post goes to a Corvette microsite where you can sign up for updates. Moreover, we don't have much new information. The prototype is still camouflage from top to tail. The number highlighted in red is probably a reference to the car's internal C8 designation. And to build a hype ahead of an auto show of New York, where a press conference at GM is not on schedule, there are some central-engine Corvette prototypes wandering around Manhattan streets.
From what we heard, the Corvette middle engine will be exposed in its independent event, which will be held at a possible race track. Wherever Chevy decides to show it, the beginning should give us all the answers we had (or at least most of them, hopefully). Will the central Corvette engine take two overhead cameras? Will it get turbochargers? Are center consoles at the inside really a strange strange button layout? We count these days until July 1
