Throughout its history, American automotive engineering has produced some legendary household names—one of them being the Chevrolet Corvette. Seven generations and more than 60 years later, the sports car continues to endure. Tomorrow, we will be witnessing the reveal of yet a new generation of this storied icon.
There are a lot of things that make the reveal of the new Corvette more interesting than just the name itself. The big news is its all-new mid-engine design. According to Chevrolet, this layout is the materialized vision of Zora Arkus-Duntov, the father of the Corvette. Also, the reveal of the 2020 Stingray—yes, the name endures—can be watched through a global livestream via the Chevrolet US Pressroom website.
“There is a large contingent of Corvette fans across the world waiting for the reveal of the Next Generation. We’re happy to give these fans, and all sports car enthusiasts, a way to see and learn about the vehicle at the same time as those participating live in California,” said Barry Engle, executive vice president and president, The Americas, General Motors. “Viewers will hear directly from Chevrolet leadership, engineering and some special guests about the highlights and background of this first mid-engine Corvette.”
National dealership tours will follow the international reveal, covering more than 125 select dealerships across the East and West Coasts in the United States. During the tour, customers can also get the chance to see customizable parts that will let them add a personal touch to the Corvette’s design—that is if they buy one, of course.
“With all the excitement around this vehicle, we don’t want people to have to wait to experience it in person,” added Engle. “Our national tours will bring the Next Generation car right to our customers’ local Chevrolet dealership, where they can start imagining themselves in their very own personalized mid-engine Corvette.”
We sure hope it also finds its way into the local market. How about you—are you excited to see the next-generation Corvette? Share your thoughts in the comments.
