The mid-engine Corvette has been an enigma. We know it’ll be fast. We know the engine is behind the driver. That’s really about it. We don’t even really think it’ll be called a “Corvette.” But thanks to new video from the Nurburgring, we know exactly what it sounds like. And that it’ll have an automatic transmission.
What’s this? Our mid-engine Corvette bonanza continues, this time with spy video from the Nürburgring? This button works so we’re gonna keep hitting it, folks.

It may be Labor Day in the U.S., but the Corvette team is skipping the holiday to test a certain prototype at the world’s most intense race track. Here’s the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette arriving at a testing center near the Nürburging, and with less camouflage than we’ve seen previously.
We’ve been hearing rumors about a mid-engine Corvette for a couple of years, and while GM is keeping it very under wraps, it turns out you can learn a hell of a lot from stuff floating out on the open internet. Including that everyone’s talking about two different cars entirely.

There’s still no official word from GM regarding the “mid-engine Corvette” but images and audio of the camouflaged race car running around today yield some, uh, interesting aural hints as to what powers the thing.
We at Jalopnik been talking about a possible mid-engined Corvette for an insane eleven years, which is longer than the dinosaurs were around, in internet time. That, however, pales in comparison to how long GM themselves has been playing with the idea. Some recently re-discovered photographs show it’s been on their…
The mid-engined “Corvette” (which I suspect will not actually be called a “Corvette” but will be called something else with a much dumber name, fight me) has been an elusive beast for decades now.

I am definitely not taking any crazy pills (today, at least): this is totally the mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette, people. What the hell else could it be?
Mid-engine Corvette, mid-engine Corvette, the chants drone on and on. And like how pictures of Bigfoot keep turning up every so often, so do photos of the mid-engined wonder. Except this time they look pretty legitimate, especially since it was playing with a bunch of other Corvette prototypes.

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.
