According to well-placed sources, a Corvette with a mid-engined layout was well into development in 2008, until the global financial meltdown cut off funding sources. Then, General Motors CEO Fritz Henderson proclaimed in May that the Corvette was paying it’s own way, and that the C7 was alive.
Now, as AutoWeek Magazine‘s print version declared this week (11.16.09 issue), there may no longer be a C7 in development! Say it ain’t so! We love the 6th Generation, without a doubt, but we want – we need – a future, too!
