The idea of a mid-engined Corvette has been an idea, a near production vehicle and a rumor for decades. It now seems as if we’re closer than ever following a test mule sighting earlier this year and whispers throughout the industry of such a Corvette coming to life.
But, has Cadillac President, Johan de Nysschen, just confirmed the reality of such a vehicle? You tell us, because it certainly seems he has.
“It has to be one of the options.” Not it might, or it may be, it has to be.
He elaborates on the question saying the following:
In the future there are going to be some architectures inside the corporation that will remain purely Cadillac, but then there are others where it just isn’t economically feasible to enter segments by trying to do a unique Cadillac. Then you look at what’s available in terms of corporate assets. And I’m sure you’d agree that a new, very advanced Corvette platform wouldn’t be a bad place to start.
If a mid-engined Corvette test mule kicked the rumormill into high gear, de Nysschen’s latest comments just injected such a vehicle with life.
