    Outspoken Chevy employee spills beans on first mid-engined Corvette supercar

    Nate Chandler, of Van Bortel Chevrolet in New York, recently attended a dealer function in Las Vegas, and what he purportedly saw will likely pique the interest of Corvette lovers around the world.

    “I just left the General Session presentation by GM/Chevy at the “Find New Roads” Dealer’s Conference at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas,” he said in a post to Corvetteforum.com this week.

    “We got a glimpse of the C8 Corvette. It is coming. GM called it a super car. The 2 pictures we saw showed very little, but I’m thrilled to share I caught a glimpse of the production car. It definitely looked mid-engined.”

    Marking a move that will position it closer to European competitors including the Ferrari 488 GTB, McLaren 720S, Audi R8 and Lamborghini Huracan, the next Corvette’s adoption of a mid-mounted V8 has been the subject of persistent rumours since 2015.

    Thanks Terry!
