2014 Chevy Corvette Mid-Engine Rumors Surface… Again

Past reports have indicated that the next-generation C7 Corvette will be merely a stop-gap with a short production cycle, before a game-changing C8 model arrives just a few years later.

According to the latest rumors, the C7 may actually be the model that ushers in a bold new change for the Vette, with AutoCar suggesting the car model, set to launch in 2013 as a 2014 car, could go mid-engine. Supporting this are comments by GM North America president Mark Reuss who said the car will be "completely different" from the current model.

GM execs have been open about the fact they want to transform the Chevrolet Corvette into a car with global appeal that will compete alongside models from Ferrari and Porsche. To do that, it will finally get an interior deserving of its performance says GM global design boss Ed Welburn, describing the C7 interior as "absolutely world class."

Plus, rumors continue to be floated about a possible V6 engine.

GM recently announced a $131 million investment in its Bowling Green, Kentucky plant, known also as the Corvette Factory, as it prepares to put the C7 into production in 2013.
