By making it mid-engine that will help it be more road course focused and not exactly something that only attracted people that just want to go fast in a straight line, much like the GT-R which attracts people that want something for the road course and even straight line.


It's just deviating away from the vette we once knew.

I tend to see a lot more GT-Rs used as drag racing cars more than anything to be real. You see the amateur taking it to a road course here and there but that's pretty much it.

This vette is definitely going to be something that everyone is unfamiliar with in terms of what it used to be. This is going to be a huge change. Both aesthetically and in terms of performance.

I'm pretty sure we won't see majority of these on a drag strip now though. They'll be used for tracking purposes is what I'm banking on especially with the completely new setup.

With what we know now.. that the LT5 is supposed to be a twin-turbo v8 quad-cammed animal, it does seem more possible that there will a hybrid variant of the C8 just so that it can appeal to a broader market I think

I think they'll have to produce a new hybrid engine that'll be able to carry an output high enough to maintain that C8 Corvette essence. I don't think they have any hybrid engines that produce anything worthy of it.

A Hybrid Corvette C8 could compete against the other hybrid sports cars that has been cropping up recently like the new NSx and BMW's i8.
