C8 Going HybridDecember 17, 2020
As we have previously reported to you, Chevrolet will be releasing a new hybrid-electric variant of the C8 Corvette, titled the “E-Ray”. Unofficial reports suggest there will be an electric drive unit situated in the front cargo area of the car, and to power the electric motors, four 1.94 kWh batteries placed in the center of the C8.
It is estimated the peak power of the electric motors will be approximately 115hp and 111lb of torque and feed the front wheels. Performance is a focus and the electric motors will enable torque vectoring to the C8’s advance handling abilities. It is further reported that the E-Ray will not be able to drive on electric power only, but will complement the estimated to be 600 horsepower V8 sitting in the middle of the car.
This hybrid supercar is also expected to have a slightly wider body than our current favorite C8, and wider wheels to enable more contact with the road. It’s also projected the new build will include larger brakes. It’s rumored this car will be launched in 2022 or possibly 2023, and available in both coupe and convertible formats. There is no price estimate yet for this hybrid option.

What Mike Like about this Corvette:
“It was a refreshing change to have the Corvette Team integrate the headlights into the front fenders for the first time in the C6 rendition. The subtle changes of the C6 over the C5 were face lifting. Just enough to say we’ve done a bang-up job!
And I have to say this 08 convertible looks stunning in all black. Hard to say what year it is when quickly glancing at it. So why spend $100,000 when you can spend $27,900 and look great doing it. And your wallet will be budging with all the left-over cash.”

We got this very sharp, 2 owner rag top from a local So. CA. client. He is an older gentleman who is unfortunately in ill health, which necessitated he sell his precious Corvette. The car is in excellent condition with only 47k miles on the odometer. It’s an excellent running and driving car. All cars look great in Black! And this Corvette is no exception!
Black with Black interior, 376/430hp, 6-spd. Paddle-Shift automatic transaxle.
Thrill rides no!!!
