Chevrolet has not confirmed plans for a mid-engine Corvette, but evidence of its impending arrival is mounted. New pictures of the sports car have come on Instagram, and this prototype looks a bit different than the last one we saw in September.
The front ventilation is no longer covered by white camo as on the previous prototype. This change makes them look even more pronounced, a good look at the sports car. But we can tell this area is still not ready for production. In addition to the new front valves, the car shows thin headlights with daylight and a smooth new set of black wheels.
Another picture shows the back end, which also looks different. The tail lights are covered by black camo, but you can still see the rear valves pointing right below. Like the previous prototype, it receives dual exhaust pipes on both sides. The images were posted by Instagram users rhurren505 and njhurren.
Powertrain specifications remain unclear at this point, but we have heard that it could offer 4.2-liter and 5.5-liter dual-V-8 motors. Forced induction may also be in the cards. Citing unnamed sources, GM Authority reports that the mid-engine Corvette will probably debut the coming summer. The new report also claims that Chevy will uncover the car on a stand-alone event instead of a big auto show. Reported, electrical issues have delayed the car's debut.
