Thanks to some very well-informed members over at Corvetteforum.com, we have what looks like genuine CAD renderings of the next-generation mid-engine Chevy Corvette. You guys called it when you said these would be up on Autoblog in the next few hours. We always appreciate your finds. The images appear to show the car's sub-structure and engine, giving us our our first look under the skin. We can't confirm if these are real, but someone would have to go through a hell of a lot of effort to fake this.

This 1990 Corvette ZR-1 Has Only 350 Miles

  This 1990 Corvette ZR-1 Has Only 350 Miles I might get some flak for this but I truly believe the 4th generation Corvette is the best generation. Sure it had barely 200-horsepower out of a wheezing V8 when it debuted in 1984 but it also had pop-up head lights, saw blade wheels and looked like a shovel with t-tops. In 1990 Chevy decided to debut the first ever Corvette ZR-1. This new performance package included modified suspension and an entirely new engine built by Mercury Marine that made 375 horsepower. The ZR-1 competed against the likes of Porsche and Lamborghini. It was a big fiberglass Vaporwave wedge and I still think it looks great today.

Future Cars. Renderings . Offbeat News. Brands A-Z. The mid - engine model promises to change everything we know about the Corvette and we might be learning more about the car thanks to several CAD drawings that recently surfaced on Corvette Forum.

You may remember earlier this month when we showed you some leaked CAD images of the upcoming mid - engine ’d C8 Corvette . This engine does appear to be different than the one seen in the previous leaked images, which was identified as an LT1.

Given the quality, it appears these are photos from a computer screen. Presumably GM has some lockdown on screenshots. User firebirdfan breaks down the photos pretty well. The transverse leaf spring appears to be gone, replaced by coils. The suspension look beefy, though it's hard to tell if the car uses spool-valve or magnetorheological dampers. Firebirdfan says the front control arms are similar to those on the current Corvette.

The engine seems to eschew any means of forced induction, meaning it's likely the LT1 that powers the current C7 Corvette Stingray. If this is really the C8, look for more powerful variants somewhere down the line. The exhaust manifold is short and compact while the transaxle appears to be quite large. The front brakes are also large and appear to have six-piston fixed calipers.

Further details can be found in the forum where users are far more educated about the inner workings of the Corvette than we are. We still don't have any official confirmation that the car exists, but few people should have any doubt that this car is coming.
