Chevrolet is continuing to hand feed us tiny details about the mid-engine C8 Corvette’s debut. The latest bit of information comes from an e-mail invitation sent to media, which the Mid-Engine Corvette Forum published on Tuesday. In the invite, Chevrolet names Orange County, California, as the location for the mid-engine C8 Corvette‘s debut. As Corvette Mike Anaheim is in Orange County, you bet we will be bringing you updates as they happen.
There is also a new teaser from Chevrolet that, among other things, flashes through Corvette history. The video opens with Zora Arkus-Duntov, the father of the Corvette, also an accomplished race car driver, getting ready to hit the track.
It is expected that only a base model C8 will be at the reveal. It will most likely come with an upgraded version of the current 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine with about 500 horsepower and a new dual-clutch automatic. Additional variants, possibly being a 1,000-hp hybrid model and a mid-range twin-turbo 4.2-liter Cadillac Blackwing V8 producing around 600-hp, will come in future releases, just like GM did with the C7.

What Mike likes about this car:
“I was there when the original owner, (longtime friend and customer) bought this Heritage GT new. It’s not every day you meet a guy that has two GT’s that he is the original owner of each. What I can tell you is this car is as new as they come. I inspected it very carefully and there is not a flaw to be found on the body (clear bra installed since new). The tires are like new and the engine bay looks like the day it rolled off the line. The car lived its entire life in a climate controlled detached man cave at his home outside of LA. Our perfect dry climate has preserved this car and all of its finishes to factory delivery condition. I could go on and on but send out your most experienced inspectors and if they are not 100% satisfied and it is not museum quality I will pay for their airfare, lunch, rental car and new eyeglasses.”
