It seems this long-awaited mid-engined Chevrolet Corvette really will be designed to run with high-end European exotics. And by that, I mean you’ll more than likely be shifting the gears with paddles, not three pedals and a stick.
Autoblog captured some spy photos of a Corvette prototype (that may be the Corvette ZR1, the blog points out) tugging along a laughable massive wing on the trunk. This is basically what it looks like.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
If a recent CorvetteForum post is to be believed, the owner of a 2016 Chevrolet Corvette took the car into a California dealership and got more than just service out of the visit—he also watched a “joyride” by an employee. The owner never said whether the service was successful, either. Man.
Automakers don’t pick their first drive locations by accident. This all takes months of planning with many site visits and much scouring of drive routes. The entire world knows that Atlanta turns into a bubbling bowl of stew during the summer, and Chevrolet knows that all of you are paying close attention to how the…
If you’ve got multiple kids to transport, and your ride is a Corvette, you’re either making multiple trips, or you’re going to do something really stupid. Jessica Reger of Pennsylvania—the person with the happiest mugshots ever—is accused by police of going with the latter option, shoving her two kids in the…
Bigfoot has been sighted! I mean, uh, there are some new spy shots of what may be the midengine Corvette. Check them out at Autoblog and decide for yourself what you’re looking at.
The mid-engined Chevrolet Corvette. It is as mythical and fleeting as a unicorn, or the new Frank Ocean album. For decades now—literally decades—General Motors has flirted with a mid-engined ‘Vette that could really take the fight to European exotics. It has never happened. So why is GM now spending $290 million to…
The Corvette is, as I said earlier, virtually a car without vices. So what’s the problem?

Nothing ruins an automotive experience quite so badly as a horrible steering wheel.
The low, rumbling howl of the Corvette C7.R’s V8 engine is amazing in its own right, but I think the mating call that summons them may just be slightly more amazing.
The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport is the track-focused sports car for the common person, and Chevrolet announced on Friday just how much that person will have to pay in order to get it: $66,445, at the car’s cheapest.
This Corvette Z06 with the Z07 package and all the options was close to $100,000 when new, which doesn’t exactly make it the ideal ride of the proletariat masses you think of when you picture a Bernie Sanders supporter. So what the hell is going on here?
