It’s the most radical redesign in Corvette’s history
Chevrolet unveiled the first mid-engine Corvette in California on July 17th. The Targa-top coupe is powered by a 490 horsepower, 6.2-liter pushrod V8 that sits under a clear cover and drives the rear wheels through a quick-shifting, eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. No manual is being offered.
With 465 lb-ft of torque, Chevrolet says it can accelerate to 60 mph in under 3.0 seconds when equipped with the optional Z51 package and performance exhaust. The Stingray’s chassis is primarily made of aluminum and dressed in fiberglass body panels, in keeping with Corvette tradition.
The interior features a squared-off steering wheel, a full-digital instrument cluster, a central tablet-style display canted toward the driver and a long row of buttons and toggles situated on a raised ridge between the seats. Behind the motor is a trunk large enough for two golf bags or the Targa roof panel, while a smaller compartment in the front can hold a carry-on bag.
The 2020 Corvette Stingray enters production late this year. Exact pricing hasn’t been announced, but GM President Mark Reuss said it will start under $60,000, which is close to what the current Stingray goes for and about the same as a 300 hp Porsche 718 Boxster. A full-convertible version will be offered.
We are pleased to present…
