2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Reveal - Finally, A Mid-Engine Corvette!

    The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has been revealed, and Carlos Lago shares all the details in this video. That means, finally, you can stop frantically typing "2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 mid-engine" in your search engine.
    What does the first mid-engine Corvette mean for performance? More of it. Relocating the drivetrain to the middle of the car means better braking, acceleration and handling. The 6.2-liter V8 makes 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, and it's connected to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic.
    The radical structural change means an entirely new suspension design - coil-over dampers replace transverse leaf-springs - and Chevy says the mid-engine Corvette can generate nearly 1g laterally on all-season tires.
    A few key Corvette elements remain. The roof is removable. The performance-enhancing optional Z51 package includes larger brake rotors, upgraded cooling, its own final drive ratio, front brake cooling and a performance exhaust. The clever electronically controlled limited-slip differential manages torque between the rear wheels. An upgraded version of Magnetic Ride Control is optional, as is Chevy's stellar Performance Traction Management system.
    The biggest worry for Corvette traditionalists is cargo volume. There are now two trunks - one front and one rear - that offer a combined 12.6 cubic feet of space. Chevy says the front compartment can fit a carry-on-size bag and a laptop bag. Yet, total storage falls short of the last-generation Corvette, whose 15 cubic feet under its hatchback made it the world's most practical sports car.

    Pricing has not yet been announced, and production begins in late 2019.

I have read every word about the mid engine corvette in car and driver, phenomenal machine, perhaps they should have thought a bit more out of the box, electric? Even Lamborghini is testing electric! Electric is the future now, of course GM is always behind in technology, the CEO of gm initially stated, if any engineer even discusses a mid engine corvette, they would be fired, similar to our congress and senate ! Heads up their you know what!

It took me 3 sec. to see that this car should not be named CORVETTE cause all the design characteristics that made the car outstanding of all other sports cars aren't threre. This is now a bolide. US-Lambo kind of thing. But ok, "times they are a changing" and the Corvette supposed to turn into a mid engins sports car at some point in time. $60K is a grand assault to all the existing bolids. Chapeau! By the way: the first one was the Pontiac Fiero that also attacked the market with a staring price of around 10k way back in 1984. And here it comes. Rumours spreaded that GM decided to cancel the successful Fiero in 1988 because of a concern intern competition to the Corvette. What a fantastic salute to the GM history it would have been to salute that always underestimated first US mid engine "sports" car. Of course this would have been a mistake from the markting point of view.

With minimal space for the heat of the 495 hp engine and exhaust to escape due to being trapped in the middle behind the driver and passenger seats and the engine compartment being exposed to direct sun heat through the glass hood, it will be like sitting in a oven. The driver and passenger will be melting like an ice-cream under the son. The designers never thought of global warming and that the temperature in some countries like Kuwait and Saudi Arabia reaches up to 70 degrees Celsius (up to 158 degrees Fahrenheit) under the son. The tires/asphalt literally melt and the batteries explode. The heat waves have hit European countries and parts of USA in 2019 recording sky rocking temperatures. The missing technology is that of how to cool the exteriors of the engine and exhaust. I don't think that the engine breathing technology is as innovative as the rest of the other technologies. GM has failed to build a global super car that can be driven 365 days a year anywhere in the world. This is the same failure of all super car manufacturers… They are all designed for cool temperature driving. This is of course the excuse of a man who can't afford to buy a single tire on the car, afford a single service (will be around $1000 plus), a single brake service (will be around $2000 plus), a timing belt/chain replacement (will be around $5000 plus) or the insurance policy. It will be like buying a cheap printer for $50 but a single ink cartridge is for $50. The genius GM plan is to sell the CORVETTE for $90-100K (dealer price) but you will end up spending $100K during the warranty period of the car which I think will be 5 years (2 years GM warranty and 3 years third-party agonizing limited warranty).,,, GM has to make profit from parts and service to make up for the “below cost price” of the 2020 Corvette. The Made-in-China parts, software and electronics effect is highly evident to justify the “low-cost-no-profit” of the car. At end of the day, what GM have built is a “single-crash-total-loss-imminent death super car:.. The insurance companies will be aware of this fact in no time. So, the buyers have expect sky rocking insurance premiums or even rejection to insure. The 2020 buyers will be bombarded with high tech gadgets, control & stability, custom transmission lubrication & clutch roasting, engine overheating and brakes fading,suspension problems, etc. The car will spend more time at the service centres than with the owner… GM is famous for building high tech Corvettes with no diagnostics tools that can detect what is wrong with it. The high technology of the car will leave it paralyzed for months at the dealership to figure out what is wrong with it. A smart buyer will wait till 2021 or 2022 to buy the car which is the time needed to deal with the arising ownership technical problems of the car by GM. The questions that the buyer has to ask him/herself are: 1- On which streets I am going to accelerate from zero to 60 KM/hr in less than 3 seconds?; 2- On which streets I am going to drive my car above 100 KM/hr? 3- How much I am going to spend on the fuel of a V8 engine with 495 hp during the first 5 years of the car usage? 4- Am I going to be targeted by the police everywhere I drive the car? 5- The distance needed to slow the car from 60 Km/hr and 100 Km/hr to Zero. GM did not brag about this piece of information. Owning a 2020 Corvette is like owning a racing horse with no track to race on.

Why isn’t anyone asking the real question, Why would GM change the Corvette? Offer a new vehicle that is a mid engine car. Ford did this well with the GT, they didn’t just start making a mid engine mustang. I am salty because honestly I haven’t seen a “real” Corvette since the C5, 2014 they changed the Corvette by removing the iconic rear lights, now they’ve gone and changed the entire body to make it look like a Ferrari? Who the hell is plagiarizing designs at GM these days? Silverado looks just like the F-150 IMO if I may remind everyone.
