    What is this, Oli? Clickbait?

    The entire article is unsubstantiated speculation.

    The 2017 c8 Corvette is the one that we have all been waiting for. It will finally build a mid engine model that will is going to put those Italian sports cars in their place.

    Car and Driver has confirmed that this is coming to reality, they even spotted some test cars on the track.

    So far GM has issued no denials discrediting Car and Driver’s find. While there’s no fresh intel regarding launch of the C8, the fact that hardware has left the lab should suggests that the C8 sports car is on pace to roll into showrooms as a 2017 model.
    Chevy better not **** it up if they do it.

    Looks great! I just hope it comes with a real dual clutch paddle shift. ( I know some here prefer a stick, but don't knock it till you try it)

    Who knows if this is true. There have been some mid-engine looking mule photos, but I have also heard that the mule is a mid-engine Cadillac so go figure. Just because they are tesing something does not mean it will ever see production.

    If they figure out a mid engine Cadillac, a mid engine corvette is a real possibility. Wasn't there a cadillac that had a bunch of corvette suspension parts in the last 10 years?

    They figured it out in 2002. 900hp, direct injection motor, with cylinder deactivation. Fully road going, supposedly.

    The Cien. Bad ass mid engined wizardry. Every time I see a mid-engines vette concent, it reminds me of the Cien.
