There seems to be many rumors flying around future Corvette products and those rumors seem to be pointing at a future mid – engine Corvette. I am always asked, “When do you think the mid – engine Corvette will arrive in your showroom?” My answer is that the current Corvette is already mid – engine. It is a front mid – engine car, since the engine is positioned behind the center line of the front axle. Corvettes have been front mid – engined since the introduction of the C5 Corvette. It’s also interesting to know that the new Stingray, is the 1st Corvette to have a slightly rearward weight bias. With the recent addition of the Grand Sport, there seems to be a car for almost everyone. Buyers now have the choice of Stingray, Stingray Z51, Grand Sport and Z06 models – with choices of Coupe and Convertible versions of each model. Plus, there are performance packages available for the Grand Sport and Z06 models as well. With the introduction of each new generation Corvette, brings another step up in performance. You could say that the Stingray Z51 matches the performance of the prior generation C6 Z06. The new 650HP Z06 certainly eclipses almost all the performance potential of the prior generation C6 ZR1. So where do we go from here? Most recently, there have been photos of Chevrolet testing another front engined Corvette. These cars have been highly camouflaged but appear to be Z06 based. The difference is that these cars are sporting massive rear wings and seem to have much larger front grille openings.
