Last month during an interview with Autoline, Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter flatly denied that Chevy was building a secret mid-engine sports car. But that hasn’t stopped the speculation that a new flagship mid-engine sports car wearing the cross-flag badges may be on the horizon.

To help fill in some details about the how a mid-engine Corvette might look like, Bold Ride turned to the concept designers at Hansen Arts to imagine a Corvette with the engine in the back.

It’s important to note that this render is the first one we’ve seen following Ford’s reveal of the all new GT sports car. Previous mid-engine Corvette renders were pretty bland with most designers shortening the front of the car and then placing current C7 design cues on the renders.

Bold Ride’s new rendering is very much an extension of the current C7 Corvette Z06 which include the front side vents and rear quarter brake ducts. The front has a new grill but again very similar to the shape and size of the current Z06. The hood has a larger waterfall air extractor in the middle and stingray styled LED lights.

On the rear, it looks like the artists used both the Z06 and the Corvette C7.R served as the basis for the design elements. The hexagonal tail lights are back and there is the addition of a horizontal grill that runs between the two sets of lights. The dual exhaust ports have been pushed back to the outside and a large diffuser encapsulates the bottom of the fascia.

We think this one of the best renders yet of the rumored C8 Corvette so head over to Bold Ride and make sure you check out all the renders of the Mid-engine Corvette Zora ZR1.
