Car and Driver: Next Generation C8 Corvette to be Mid Engine Only


It feels like silly season is upon us as these C8 Corvette rumors continue to abound. The latest comes from Car and Driver’s Technical Editor Don Sherman, who we like to remind people is a long-time Corvette owner. When Sherman has something to say about a next generation C8 Corvette, we listen like he’s EF Hutton.

Sherman’s bombshell in his report at Car and Driver is that the next generation C8 Corvette will be going to a mid-engine architecture only. The mid-engine project name is call ZERV, a nod to Zora’s experimental mid-engine test vehicles from the 1960’s known as CERV-1 and CERV-2. The C8 Corvette ZERV will feature two models, a base model powered by the current LT1 V8 as well as a high performance version powered by a new Corvette engine that is under development.
