Default GM to reveal next generation Corvette in July

It's enough to rev up Corvette fans _ a new rendition of the classic sports car is coming

And General Motors has a big change in the next generation Corvette being revealed July 18.

GM confirms the engine in the new model is being moved from under the hood to being tucked between the passenger compartment and the rear wheels — a "mid-engine" design.

Chevrolet says the new generation Corvette will be "the sum of each generation before it," but will "stand alone as the new standard of performance."

Previewing the reveal, General Motors released a photo showing GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra standing next to a camouflaged, next generation Corvette on Thursday in New York.

The sports car is manufactured at a GM plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

if it's true, I might want one!

But to keep the price reasonable... I hope they don't build a glorified Fiero

Since Toyota screwed up with the Supra, it looks like I'll remain a Corvette guy. Not that I wouldn't have had another Corvette anyways, but 2-3 years in on a brand new architecture...gotta let MG solve all of the BS that ALWAYS comes out with their new cars, I'll likely go the route of the Z06 variant. Base with 500 is nice, and I can't afford the Zora, but the Z06 is in my wheelhouse.
