Pictures courtesy of TMZ that were sold to Car and Driver. LOL!

It's amazing that the trouble that they go through to hide the body lines.
You Never saw that many years ago when the were running the '76 Nova or the Citation through their paces.

If you look at most if not all SUV's today, They all look pretty much the same body lines and contours except for the make and model badges on them kinda like Pro Stock and T/F Funny car.

They better not put a turbo V6 in that thing..... I know hot V6s are all the rage, Ford's new GT and all that, but a Corvette needs a V8. Ferrari downsized their 488's engine and went with turbos, but it's still a V8 and it still makes all the right music. And there's nothing wrong with the engines Corvettes currently use (I understand the '18 ZR1 has been bumped to 750hp)

46 days until the Detroit Auto Show!

Three C8 Corvette Engines Revealed in Leaked Analyst Document
By Christian Moe - November 28, 2017

Could the next-generation Corvette really make up to 850 horsepower?

Hold onto your hats, folks. We have new Corvette information that could forever alter the brand you know and love. Thanks to Corvette Forum user “rsinor” leaking a market analyst document from IHS Markit, and some deep analysis and number-crunching by member “elegant“, we have near-definitive proof of the mid-engine Corvette and its three different engine options.

Yes, the mid-engine Corvette is coming in the next few months, and it will feature three different V8 engine choices.
