It’s been a long time coming, but the day has come. The next generation Corvette has been caught on camera, undergoing some testing in Canada.
The heavily camouflaged prototype reveals some details on what to expect on the C7 Corvette. Designwise, the C7 Corvette will retain the classic long-nose, short-deck configuration of its predecessors, but have a distinct wedge shape. Also, the C7 Corvette will keep the front-engine layout, squashing rumors of mid-engine car for now.
There is still a lot of speculation on what will be powering the next generation Corvette. Rumor has it that a 5.5L twin-turbo V8 is in the cards, along with a seven speed transmission.
When will we see the next generation Corvette, sans camouflage? Rumors point to next years Detroit Auto Show.
