The C7 Corvette isn’t expected to arrive until 2013 as a 2014 model. But, rumors have it that the next generation Corvette will switch to a mid-engine layout.
Well, not after spy photos were revealed on LeftLaneNews.com. Five photos, taken by Brian Williams of Brenda Priddy & Co, show the future Corvette retaining its front engine/rear wheel drive layout.
The Corvette seen in the photos is intentionally disguised as the Cyber Gray Grand Sport Coupe. But, do you notice how the wheels are modestly shorter than the proportions of the vehicle’s body? Plus, it’s pretty apparent the vast difference in the spacing between the quad exhaust pipes, as opposed to the C6 that had dual pipes separated by about 6 inches.
It’s believed the next generation Corvette will come equipped with an all new 5.5L V8 engine with around 440 horsepower.
But folks, we’ll leave it up to you to make your own conclusions! What’d you think?
