After roughly two years’ worth of rumors, speculation, and spy shots, we now have an official date for when Chevrolet will hold the mid-engine Corvette C8 reveal. That magical date is July 18th, 2019, according to an official email sent out by Chevy to fans, followers and owners. That’s one less thing to speculate about.
Chevy’s message features the image above, containing a camouflaged mid-engine Corvette C8 prototype followed by the words “Don’t Get Left Behind”. It then includes the following text:
After 67 years, get ready for the next level of Corvette.
The Next Generation Corvette is the most anticipated Corvette ever. It’s the sum of each generation before it, but will stand alone as the new standard of performance. Sign up below to receive updates straight from the source and be the first to know about the Next Gen Corvette.
Come along for the ride.
That means that, as of this writing, the mid-engine Corvette C8 reveal is 98 days away. It also confirms that the mid-engine car about we’ve speculated so much, but about which we don’t know any concrete details, will be a Corvette… not a new vehicle in the Chevy lineup, nor a Cadillac. Of course, we already knew this after getting a look at the car’s digital gauge cluster last week, though there were some who still didn’t believe that the vehicle in question is, in fact, a Corvette.
