When Will The Corvette Launch?

Was expecting to see the Corvette debut at the North American International Auto Show this week but that didn't pan out. Think it'll appear at the next major motor show in Geneva?

I've found the answer myself, Automotive News says the midengine Corvette won't debut until the 2019 Detroit auto show, but perhaps earlier in Europe at the Geneva auto show in a few months.

back when I was following developments on the new Camaro some test mules were spotted right before its debut, safe to say that will happen this time around before Detroit,

Even if they decide to unveil it at Detroit, sales probably wont begin to roll out until early 2019. Part of this will be dependant on whether or not it will replace the C7 outright or be offered alongside it initially.

The Z06 has been around since 2014 and in that time its seen a good amount of success. I would imagine that they will continue the ZR1 at least, for a while.

The ZR1 is imo the best Corvette that GM has produced in the last decade. The only issue with it is that GM didn't really give it any unique styling over any other C7 model. It also gets pretty pricey as you start to spec it out.

The added exterior aerodynamic parts on the ZR1 was enough for me and most corvette guys I know that liked the C7's original design. Being an outgoing model it was best not to mess with it. Can't recall when an automaker ever has, but at least this C8 will bring drastic changes.
