After the debut of the seventh generation Corvette Stingray back in 2013 along with the Corvette Z06 that bowed a year later, the automotive press has been pretty excited about the prospect that the next generation Corvette may be produced featuring a mid engine layout. Following a sighting of a possible mid-engine mule running at the Milford Proving Grounds, prospects do indeed seem higher for a new kind of Corvette – something that Zora Arkus-Duntov always wanted to pursue but was always foiled by the GM bean counters.

Three Los Angeles police officers who shot and killed a Corvette driver they believed was reaching for a weapon last year won’t face criminal charges following the recent conclusion of an investigation by LA prosecutors.

The pursuit finally ended when Beaird crashed into another car while going through an intersection. He then climbed out of the Corvette, staggering and heading toward the back of the car where officers believed he was reaching for a weapon.

The 427 Mark II Mystery Motor isn’t actually part of the legendary Mark IV family, which debuted in 1965, but you can definitely consider it the missing link between the 348/409 and big-block Chevy engine families since it has characteristics from both.
