Anticipation has been high. Thousands of sightings full of black and white camouflage. Mixed emotions.
Last night’s arrival of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Mid-Engine C8 Stingray on stage in Tustin, CA brought oohs and ahhs from the crowd. The mid-engine wonder was finally a reality after years of hype. Click here to view highlights of the reveal courtesy of Chevrolet.
The father of the Corvette, Harley Earl, might have come up with the original idea but Belgian engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov dreamt of a mid-engine super-car sixty years ago and we were the eavesdroppers on his dream that came true last night.

The heart of Zora’s 2020 Stingray dream-car is Chevrolet’s 6.2L Small Block V8 LT2 engine kicking out 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Pair it with an entry level price-tag of less than $60,000, his dream can become yours.
Making a memory in a Corvette is usually a once-in-a-lifetime experience. For those of us who have had multiples…a privilege.
Whether you’re a fan of the mid-engine or not, there is no denying the proud history of this GM icon will live on.
There are new memories to be made.
