It’s looking like GM will take the Corvette evolution one step further with a mid-engine design instead of the traditional front engine. That is if Chief Corvette engineer Tadge Juechter’s prediction to CarBuzz a few years ago holds true.

This vision of the new C8 is still distinctly Corvette-like but with a few modern twists, like the massive vents under the headlights.

The new mid-engine C8 hearkens back to Juechter’s statement to CarBuzz in Geneva a few years ago, when he said the front-engine format was played out from a design and performance standpoint.
