There’s another round of midengine Chevrolet Corvette spy photos, and they’re perhaps the best look at the long-rumored sports car yet.
Spy photographers spotted what appears to be a midengine Corvette at one of General Motors’ winter-testing facilities.
The photos indicate that the vehicle will have a lower hood line, a longer rear deck and a much shorter dash-to-axle ratio.
The midengine mule was spotted, at times, next to a pair of other Corvette prototypes that are likely next-gen ZR1 mules.
Despite being heavily camouflaged, some key design features such as taillights and the vehicle’s exhaust layout were visible.
The latest photos illustrate just how much of a departure, in terms of design and engineering, a midengine Corvette would be for GM.
It remains unclear where a midengine Corvette would stand in the Chevrolet performance lineup and whether it will replace the C7 Corvette outright or coexist with the current generation.
In August, The Detroit News, citing multiple sources, reported that GM plans to begin selling a midengine Corvette in early 2019.
