General Motors at a media event on Thursday evening officially unveiled its eighth-generation Corvette. It’s the first mid-engine Corvette in the model’s history and it’ll start at under $60,000 according to GM President Mark Reuss. The base model 2020 Corvette Stingray will pack a 6.2-liter V8 (LT2) pumping out 495 horsepower and 470 foot-pounds of torque (with the Z51 performance package) that’s mated to an eight-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. At just 3,366 pounds, the mid-engine Chevy can reportedly sprint from zero to 60 mph in under three seconds with help from the grippy 305/30ZR-20 tires at the rear.
 
I agree that it looks a bit like a Ferrari.  
 


Specs: AMD 2920X Threadripper, Corsair MP510 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASRock X399 Taichi, Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2080ti Black

    That is one sexy ride. I've been seeing it all over facebook.
     
    I'd definitely be down to get one, but I need to stick to 4 door cars >_<!

    Lines look nice
     
    I'd wager none will be available at that base price - Dealers will boost the price
     
    It is just a shame that previous Vetts have had such a terrible reliability issue
     
    Not a fan of the tail lights shape
     
    Time will tell how well they are built

    That looks like a Ferrari knockoff model
     
    But i agree with most of you, that is one crazy, eye popping, site for sore eyes, sexy ride

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    It’s not a corvette. Manual transmission, engine in the back and no long hood. It’s just not a corvette.


    What it is is the car that people under 60 would want to own.

    This should give the vette better traction, handling and acceleration all because where the engine is positioned.  The other exotic car makers didn't decide to make their cars mid/rear engine for nothing.

    Not a fan my self. The back end is butt ugly. Trying too hard to be Euro. If I wanted to go with a mid-engine car, De Tomaso Pantera 
    Or a Ford GT. Should keep the Vett a Vett and build a new platform

    Thats my gripe with this and the upcoming GT500 mustang, both paddle shift options only, no stick.  makes sense with a mid engine euro style corvette, but not the GT500.

    The GT350 is still stick, and comes with 662 HP.

    So does my '66 fastback, but it's at the point where the chassis cant keep up with the motor.  plus the GT350 uses the newer less aggressive headlights, while the GT500 is just mean

    They are probably thinking ... You can't possible shift as fast as that dual clutch auto
     
    or it could be just smoother & easier on the car's parts ....

    That is exactly why they are going to automatics & paddle shifters... to improve times. A regular manual is the best fun though.

    It's also because modern super cars can in real time track the traction of each tire and monitor the RPM of each. The computer can control the car better then a manual could allow and helps prevent accidents. It used to be that an automatic was bad but with the modern computer it just is better then any human.

    Reactions times and perfection through computer and machine is the new way to go.  While I agree manual is fun but when it comes to straight performance, the computing and machine will always beat the human.

    Meh still hate ungodly oversized center consoles. With the monstrosity they put in this thing and those buttons down the ridge, I'd swear there's a limo privacy glass in it to separate driver from passenger you just have to find it in all that useless minutia.

    What happened to the days when cars were both powerful and not cramped. Jeeze for this car clausterphobics need not apply.

    As for the manual vs auto...for some of us it's not about fastest possible times. It about enjoying and being connected with the car.

    I'd like to see an electric truck but wouldn't be able to convince myself to buy one until I can charge it fully in even 10 times what it takes to top off my truck. Make it charge fully in 10 minutes and give me 400 miles of range you have my attention. Till then they are mostly toys in my eyes still.

    Which is a shame cause our leaf at work though ugly as sin has some serious oomph to it when I'm you time off all the Eco settings.

    Slightly better front end. Profile looks sharp. Rear end is vulgar. I suppose they had the option of making it look completely like a Ferrari with circular lights, or like a Camaro with the squared lights. They made the wrong choice.
     
    Mid-engine setup was a great idea.

    It's also because a human can shift a super car fast enough to cause the tires to completely lose traction and make the car lose control. With a computer monitoring the traction of each tire it can make sure that increasing the power equals an increase in controlled forward motion. A professional driver might be able to keep control but some random rich guy buying super car can take it out to a race track over shift and hit a wall at 127mph and find the car rips apart very quickly... I have seen this happen and it's kind of sad to see a car worth over a million turn to a pile of scrap.

    Personally love the look and can't wait till we get one in here out our Dealership. Definitely agree that it's styling is much like a Ferrari, but that's NOT a bad thing by any means, especially given it'll be a fraction of the cost.  And maybe a little more on specialty cars like these, but you guy's might be surprised how little *some* Dealers markup can be. Believe me when I say, we really don't make all that much off new cars. There is A LOT more money to be had in used cars.
