    That's the rumor and from the spy shots of the "mules" (prototypes) the proportions of the car is definitely mid-engined.

    Powertrain will include the new 4.2L twin turbo V8 developed for Cadillac.

    Should be crazy quick everywhere.

    The Corvette brand was risking going the way of Harley Davidson...beholden to tradition to the point of absurdity and obsolescence.
    Any mention of all wheel drive?

    Fear-inspiring and gorgeous at the same time. Corvette has always been a bargain supercar. Doesn't look like that's gonna change in the forseeable future. WOW.

    I've been a lifelong Corvette fan.

    I can't afford that, but if I could afford it, I'm just kinda meh over that one. I'm just not digging the front end.

    Most mid-engined cars don't have such a huge front intake / cooling?

    But pretty cool looking.

    I like it.
    I could buy one if I sacrificed my retirement, kid's education and all future plans.

    Might be worth it.

    I was ready to pull the trigger on a 2018/2019 Camaro SS 1LE then saw the release of the 2019 and it’s not good looking. Now I’m looking for a used 2018.

    However if Chevy releases something that actually looks like that I’ll be buying a 2020 corvette. Hopefully it doesn’t turn out like fords “Bronco” where the concept is beautiful and the release looks generic and uninspired.

    1990's Ferrari called...they want their body design back.

    I hope that's not it. The design that's out now looks 10x better than that.

    Sounds like GM has quality issues as well. Friend's new Silverado had lifter fail at 9K miles. Many problems with Active Fuel Management.

    The C7 has massive cooling issues. Many go into limp mode when on a track because of overheating protection.

    Mine was constantly over the designed oil temp with all radiator fans running nonstop in summer.

    Should stay on 225 max but fans couldn't keep it there it was most of the time close to 250. That was one contributing factor for a massive oil consumption of 2 quarts in 1,000 miles.

    I REALLY hope GM comes up with a new engine (that pushrod crap doesn't cut it anymore). Those inlets really make sense in order to help with engine temperature, especially with a mid-engine.

    That being said, I'm done with GM. If I ever wanted another sports car, I'll get a AMG GT or a 911.

    You're absolutely right! The 2019 Camaro looks like crap warmed over!! I really like the design of this 2020 Vette.
