2018 Chevrolet Corvette spied

2018 Chevrolet Corvette spiedStill heavily disguised, but failing to hide those distinctive supersized cab-forward, stretched rear proportions that hint at a mid-mounted engine bay, the Zora is believed to be built on top of an eighth-generation Corvette chassis that includes plenty of lightweight aluminium spaceframe wrapped in a carbonfibre composite shell.

Granted, the forthcoming mid-engine Corvette is expected to cost less than half what the Porsche 911 Turbo S costs – according to some projections, far less, with Automobile speculating the new halo car could start as low as $65k. The fire-breathing hunk of metal that will sit behind the driver is still shrouded in mystery, but many suspect that a new, dual-overhead-cam V8 dubbed “LT5” could be in the works.

The Turbo S is a very nice all-around car; it’s brutally quick on the track and effortlessly fast on the road. It’s also $200,000, has 580-horsepower, and can hit 60 from a standstill in 2.5 seconds. Chevrolet seems to want its car to be just as capable as the Turbo S, and it will likely cost half as much.

A more likely culprit is the 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8 previewed by the Cadillac Escala Concept, paired to an automatic transmission. On the subject of cogs, there’s still debate if the C8 will use the 10-speeder co-developed with Ford or the Tremec TR-9007 DCT.
