[Made Up] Rumors of a Mid-Engined C7 Corvette Again

[Made Up] Rumors of a Mid-Engined C7 Corvette Again

I’m not buying it. The latest round of rumors of a C7 mid-engined Corvette come from the same English car site that pushed the same story a year ago. This time, they took a quote from GM’s North American President Mark Reuss who said the next generation Corvette would be “completely different”. Reuss made the statement at the Corvette Assembly Plant last week where he announced the company would be investing $131 million to upgrade the plant.

As one of the commenter’s on their own site said, there’s no meat in this sandwich. Following the same logic, I could say ithe C7 is going to be made out of metal. After all, that’s “completely different” than the C6. Or how about a hybrid? See, I can speculate like that too!

Join me on twitter tonight at 9pm EST under the #motorama hash tag to discuss.

The ad just hit Craigslist last night but you’ll find the description to be incredibly terse for someone trying to sell a classic Corvette.
