New Chevrolet Corvette photos, premiere date revealed

2020 Chevrolet Corvette confirmed for July 18 debut

Spy photos and street spot videos appeared nearly on a weekly basis. Even so, this is the first time the manufacturer has ever acknowledge its existence.

Chevrolet tweeted a teaser of the eighth-generation Corvette on Thursday, and the prototype was actually driven through NY with General Motors CEO Mary Barra riding shotgun. According to auto and Driver, the first Corvette model to debut will be the "base" C8 Stingray, powered by a revised version of the current model's 6.2-litre V8.

For starters, it's expected that the base models of the C8 will feature an upgraded version of the 6.2-liter V8 engine now used in the C7 Corvette Stingray.

We finally have a date, folks! 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. Expect the new Corvette to cost around $62,000 to start, an increase of around $5000 compared to the C7 Stingray's starting price of $56,995. Power levels have yet to be announced, but talk has been around 800HP, with a possible hybrid version developing 1,000HP to all four wheels.

There's also a possibility of a dual clutch automatic transmission, with a possible manual version in the works. New information suggests GM may use the ZF 8-speed DCT which is equipped in a number of VW Group vehicles and will also go into the 2020 Porsche 911 model.

After years of speculation, spy shots and insider rumors from General Motors, the automotive giant has finally confirmed what we already knew: the mythical mid-engined Corvette will soon be upon us.
