Mid-Engine Corvette: Everything We Think We Know

  Mid-Engine Corvette: Everything We Think We Know Is a mid-engine C8 Corvette on its way? Here's all the evidence supporting that rumor.This story was originally published June 30, 2016, and is being updated as new information is revealed. It was last updated on September 28, 2017.

In terms of horsepower, the 5.5-liter will reportedly make a maximum of 850 hp , with the 4.2-liter cranking out something closer to 650 hp . If so, that would mean the top-of-the-line mid - engine Corvette will make nearly 100 hp more than the already-quick Corvette ZR1, and the

And according supposedly leaked documents on Corvette Forum, the all-new C8 may have up to 850 horsepower using a twin-turbo V8. A recent post indicated that one of their members got their hands on an analyst’s document that revealed not only the engine options but also the trim levels for

A leaked document is creating quite a stir and raising some intriguing questions surrounding the C8 Chevy Corvette. Specifically: Could the next-gen Vette make up to 850 horsepower (edging out the Dodge Demon's demonic 840 hp)? Will the C7 Corvette remain in production for years after the mid-engine C8 hits the streets? Might the C8 get three engine choices, with not just one but two of them DOHC?

According to a market analyst document from IHS Markit which was leaked by a Corvette Forum user, the new Corvette C8 I like the 6.2 in my 17 Grand Sport a lot.. are the 4.2 and 5.5 the DOHC engines? I want a high revving NA v8 (maybe 550-600 hp ) mid engine with a manual trans please 🙂.

Take a gulp of coffee and ponder all of that.

2019 Chevrolet Corvette Will Enter Production on January 29, 2018, Report Says

  2019 Chevrolet Corvette Will Enter Production on January 29, 2018, Report Says <p>Is the mid-engined Corvette's arrival just three months away?</p>The news came tucked away deep in a longer story regarding the Bowling Green factory's imminent November 6th reopening, after a multi-month reset designed to retool the plant to build new models. The facility will go back to cranking out 2018 Corvettes for two and a half months until concluding that run on January 22nd, according to the paper, at which point the GM plant will begin the process of switching over to the new model.

Love the idea of a rear mid engine corvette with a 500 hp derived ohv LT1. Should any news organization that claims to be "reputable", publish leaked documents ? Chevy midsize SUV spied inside and out . 02-28-2018 06:40 PM.

The mid - engined 'Vette might have other engine options, too. Last year, a document from the auto industry analysts at IHS Markit leaked out that hinted the model might be available with 4.2- and 5.5-liter powerplants. The smaller one allegedly has around 650 hp (485 kW)

Corvette Forum is citing a document shared by a forum member, which is purported to be a forecast of engine production from analysts IHS Markit that spells out Chevy's near-term plans for the Corvette, or rather, Corvettes plural.

Mind you, this is all pretty speculative since we can't know the veracity of the document, and a lot of earnest interpretation and numbers-crunching by forum members is also involved, but here's what the forum has gleaned from it:

— The mid-engine C8 Corvette, expected to be revealed at the Detroit auto show, will have three V8 engine choices: the current 6.2-liter V8, along with a 4.2-liter and a 5.5-liter, both of those DOHC, both of them twin-turbo.

— Production of the two DOHC engines has already begun at GM's Tonawanda powertrain facility in Buffalo, N.Y.

— Interestingly, IHS Market predicts the 6.2L to be the main choice of buyers, projecting 14,000 units per year before its popularity starts to taper off. That number appears to be exclusive to the C8 and doesn't seem to include that engine's application in the C7 since GM sold 40,000 units of that car last year.

Leaked analyst document reveals three engine choices for the next-generation Vette. According to the engine production forecasting document , GM will soon What that means is the recently unveiled 755- hp 2019 Corvette ZR1 may enter history books as the most extreme iteration of a front- engined

Leaked CAD Images Reportedly Show Mid - Engine Corvette Components Corvette ZR1’s LT5 Engine Had A Colorful Internal Codename Corvette Chief The smaller mill would allegedly produce around 650 horsepower (485 kilowatts), and the larger one could have roughly 850 hp (634 kW).

— The DOHC engines would be more exclusive, with the 4.2-liter produced at a rate of 7,000 per year, and the 5.5L at 5,000. By the way, there's no correlation in the document between engines and trim levels.

— Forum members have sussed out that the 5.5-liter engine could make 850 horsepower and 720 pound-feet of torque — so likely, that's the ZR1. They reckon the output of the 4.2L at around 650 horsepower.

— The document mentions a use case for the 4.2-liter engine in a "Cadillac Sports Car," but at numbers so low, the folks at the forum think it must be only for racing. Or maybe not.

— And finally, the current front-engine, rear-drive C7 Corvette will live on for perhaps three more years, with motor production scheduled to continue through 2021.

We'll get confirmation on any or all of the above when the mid-engine Corvette is expected to hit the floor at the North American International Auto Show in January.
