The C8 is the realization of Zora’s dream and the spiritual successor to previous mid-engine While Zora’s influence is undeniable, so is the fact that the 2020 Corvette will be known as the Stingray .

That didn't take long.

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is here, but that’s not stopping rendering artists of the world from looking into the future. Scattered throughout the ‘Vette’s 66-year legacy are occasional ZR1 models (ZR-1 for you C4 aficionados) that, among other things, add prolific power. The most recent ZR1 debuted in 2017, packing a supercharged 755-horsepower (563-kilowatt) LT5 V8 up front beneath a bulging hood, and a gigantic wing on the back.

2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Stingray Leaked Ahead Of Debut

2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Stingray Leaked Ahead Of Debut An article from Esquire could've spilled the whole beans, including a 495-horsepower V8. Three years ago we caught our first blurry glimpse of an early C8 Corvette prototype, heavily covered in camouflage. Now, the covers are coming off the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray a bit early. An article from Esquire magazine was apparently up briefly, revealing the final product and some key stats. Among them, a 6.2-liter V8 developing 495 horsepower and a 0-60 time of less than three seconds. Bear with us as we pull in more information on this breaking story.

An online leak reveals two new Corvette model designations for the 2020 model year. The folks over at Midenge Corvette Forum are hunting for every tiny scrap of info about the upcoming 'Vette, and the latest tantalizing detail indicates that the 2020 Corvette Stingray coupe and convertible carry the

The mid-engined Chevy Corvette ZR 1 shows off its meaner appearance in this rendering . The model is likely still several years away. This new rendering from Corvette Forum depicts what the meaner ZR 1 might look like whenever it arrives.

X-Tomi Design on Facebook carries those design cues to the new C8 almost verbatim in this fresh rendering. It certainly looks aggressive, though the high-rise hood is rather pointless now that the engine is behind the driver. Perhaps this design can offer a bit more cargo capacity in the front storage area, but alas, this rendering isn’t about storage or engine placement. It’s about giving the new C8 and C7 ZR1 makeover, and from the iconic hood to the front spiller and big wing at the rear, it’s spot-on.

It’s unlikely such a machine will ever exist, and not just because the supercharger-clearing hood is no longer needed. With the Corvette entering the mid-engine supercar world, there’s speculation that the ZR1 badge might be retired. Adopting the new “king of the hill” role could be the Corvette Zora, named of course for Zora Arkus-Duntov. It’s also likely that the range-topping performer will not sport a supercharger, but a twin-turbocharged V8 mated with an electric motor in an all-wheel-drive hybrid configuration. Rumors of a 1,000-hp (746 kW) Corvette have persisted for at least a couple years now, though if such a machine comes to life, it probably won’t materialize for a few more years at least.

2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Stingray Vs. Its Predecessors

2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Stingray Vs. Its Predecessors See how the base Corvette from each generation stacks up against the new C8. The 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Stingray is here, ushering in one of the most drastic changes in the Corvette's 66-year history – the long-awaited mid-engined layout. Three years of spy photos and wild internet rumors, along with a few alleged setbacks, have all led to this evening as Chevrolet makes the car official. This is the base C8 Corvette with hotter models in the pipeline. However, until those come to fruition, we've decided to look back at each Corvette generation and compare the entry-level offering of each to the all-new C8.

A new render with the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C7 is now available, this time showing a possible look for the ZR 1 version. After seeing the American LeMans-inspired C7R more than a week ago and what could be the convertible version, now we have a look at the ZR 1 variant which comes with an

What Do Current Corvette Owners Think Of The New C8 Stingray?

That’s okay, because Chevrolet promises the base-model Corvette Stingray will be an epic performer at an astoundingly low price. Equipped with the optional Z51 Performance Package, the 2020 Stingray is said to run from 0-60 mph in less than three seconds. Furthermore, a no-option Stingray with the new LT2 V8 will sell for less than $60,000. In short, this new mid-engined Corvette could turn the supercar world on its head.

2020 Corvette Stingray Won't Get A Manual Gearbox.
The Corvette Chief Engineer says “it’s a dying business.” Though it may not come as a surprise, Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter confirmed to Motor Authority what most already saw coming: the 2020 Corvette Stingray will not be getting a manual gearbox option. When asked about the likelihood of a row-your-own gearbox making its way into the C8, Juechter simply replied, “no...it’s a dying business.” Chevrolet responded to Motor1.com saying, “We have nothing more to add beyond re-confirming that the 8-speed DCT is the only transmission offered on the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
