Vintage Corvettes, powered by engines mounted ahead of the cockpit, are among the most popular of American collector cars, here and overseas. "It's the sum of each generation before it, but will stand alone as the new standard of performance". However, you can still clearly make out the vehicle's proportions and the huge air intake behind the doors that feeds the mid-mounted V8 engine.

And General Motors has a big change in store for the eighth generation Corvette being revealed July 18.

General Motors CEO Mary Barra made the announcement on Thursday night in NY, after arriving at a charity gala in a camouflaged prototype of the vehicle that was driven by its chief engineer, Tadge Juechter, and emblazoned with the date it will officially debut: 07/18/2019.

BTS Boy With Luv: Release Date And Details
On April 12, following the release of the new album 'Map of the Soul: Persona,' Spotify confirmed BTS surpassed 5 billion streams. The title song garnered more than 16 million YouTube views in slightly more than four hours following the official release.

Chevrolet hasn't given much away about the new model, other than it will be officially revealed on July 18. Despite his attempts, GM never executed a mid-engine Corvette.

Where things will get interesting, however, is with the optional powertrains. Just what engine it is going to be remains unknown, but General Motors used to test a prototype version of a twin-turbo V8 engine a while ago. There's even talk that there could be a hybrid version of the C8 Corvette with even more power. Unfortunately for stick-shift lovers, the range is said to be mated exclusively to a Tremec seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, bringing an end to the manual-equipped Corvette.

At this point, we don't much else about the 2020 C8 Corvette, but stay tuned to this landing page for more information as it becomes available.
