This Is The Rear End Of The New Mid-Engined C8 Chevrolet Corvette

An image appearing to show the back of Chevrolet's new Corvette has emerged over a week before the official reveal

Remind me later

The full reveal of the C8 Corvette is almost upon us. Without confirming what we already know - that it’ll be mid-engined - Chevrolet told the world a few weeks ago that the latest version of the sports car would be out on 18 July.

The Internet cares not for official reveal dates, of course, and with over a week to go before the big day, this image has emerged on Instagram. Purportedly, it’s of the C8’s rear end.

It certainly seems to match spy shots of the car, so we’re thinking it’s legit. It shows a rear fascia that has a clear familial link to the Camaro pony car, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

There are no technical details to go with the leaked image, although we are expecting a mix of turbocharged and naturally-aspirated V8s to be used for the C8 range. The sports car has also reportedly been delayed by electrical issues and problems with the frames of the more powerful prototypes twisting under load.

The C8 Corvette will be built at the General Motors Bowling Green plant, where a second shift and 400 jobs have been added to accommodate production.
