The mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette is real, and it’s finally been caught patrolling public roads. Thanks to Autoblog readers Jake Vandermoon and Josh Busenbark for sharing these photos with us. Vandermoon caught the car up in Cadillac, Michigan, pretty far north of Detroit or GM’s main proving grounds in Chelsea, Michigan. These are far and away our best look at the car yet, and the fact that GM is out on public roads shows that development is fairly far along.
The car is still heavily camouflaged, but we can make out a number of details. Other than the obvious mid-engine proportions, the biggest tell is the huge intake right behind the door. We don’t know what’s under the engine cover (maybe a DOHC V8), but It’s unlikely to be anything other than a big, burly V8. Even through the camo, the Corvette’s pointed nose is evident.
There’s not much else we can say other than “hooray!” This car has been rumored and talked about for decades, but it seems Chevy is finally following through. We can’t wait to get behind the wheel.
