Vice President of Global Vehicle Engineering Karl-Friedrich Stracke spoke with Automotive News and Autoweek on Tuesday and said the next-generation Corvette C7 will not be a mid-engine sports car and no V6 is planned or being tested.

Autoweek Calls for a Twin Turbo V6 Powered C7 Corvette

Autoweek, through its sister publication Automotive News, included some future product news for Chevrolet in yesterday’s News Brake which includes a couple nuggets on the C7 Corvette. The podcast tells us nothing new and I’m having flashbacks to Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter’s rant back in April when he called out the automotive magazines for making up stories which contain pure speculation and no facts to support the argument. Now that I’ve set the table, let’s see what Autoweek is serving.

[RUMOR] UK Blog Quotes Saab Engineer: Mid Engined Corvette Confirmed

According to the UK car site Autocar, the mid-engine Corvette project is back online. That is if you believe an unnamed source from Saab engineering. Talk of mid-engined Corvettes have been around since 1960′s CERV-I so its no surprise that the rumor is back now that General Motors has moved beyond last year’s financial difficulties. As easy as it would be to discount the story, and some blogs have, there may be some truth based on what we know from the GM-UAW Strike of 2007.

Meet GM's Extended Corvette Team

Can you name another car manufacturer that has the same up close and personal relationship with its owners as GM enjoys with Corvette? Events like the ALMS Corvette Corrals and the C5/C6 Bash allow Corvette owners and enthusiasts to meet and talk with the core of the Corvette team: Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter, Corvette Product Marketing Manager Harlan Charles and Exterior Design Executive Kirk Bennion. At the recently held C5/C6 Bash, Tadge’s bosses were also in attendance and we got a chance to hear from them at the Saturday morning GM seminar. As they will play a key role in supporting the Corvette team in the development of the C7, we thought it important enough for you to get to know them as well.

Automobile Magazine Responds to Corvette Chief Engineer's Comments from the NCM Bash

Last week we posted a video of Corvette’s Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter talking about the C7 Corvette while at the C5/C6 Bash at the Corvette Museum. The conversation was prefaced with Juechter discussing the automotive magazines and their misrepresentation of the facts and he specifically called out Automobile Magazine for their June 2010 article in which, according to Tadge, they implied that he was endorsing a V6 power plant for the next generation Corvette. Today we received an email from Automobile Magazine with a link to the article in question as well as their response to Juechter’s criticism.

Tadge Juechter Talks About the C7 Corvette

At the C5/C6 Bash at the Corvette Museum, Corvette’s Chief Engineer delivered some remarks about the next generation C7 Corvette which he said is now getting underway in earnest. Tadge prefaced his comments with a warning about how the auto magazines will claim to have inside information or renderings when in fact they are basically making it up, and for us owners to not buy into all the hype. To demonstrate, he held up a copy of the June 2010 Automobile Magazine which, as Tadge says, included a photoshopped picture of him with an article that supposedly has Juechter endorsing a V6.
