With all the news and recent spy videos showing the C8 Corvette out on the roads, it sure looks like Chevrolet will be finally bringing Zora’s dream of a mid-engine Corvette to production for the 2020 model year.
One of the great mysteries as the car is still in development will be the pricing of the new Corvette. Chevrolet has long capitalized on the Corvette being the sports car for the everyman (and woman) with the ability to offer more bang for performance than any other sports car on the planet.
The speculation on pricing for the C8 Corvette normally goes one of two ways:
It will either be very expensive when compared to past Corvettes which will allow the C8 Corvette to play in the mid-engine club that’s been long dominated by Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini, Ford GT and other luxury automakers. Or, through economies of scale, shared costs and GM ingenuity, the C8 will bring a mid-engine sports car to market for the price of a well-optioned C7 Grand Sport.
We thought a poll would be in order just to see where Corvette enthusiasts think the pricing will come in based on what you know so far about the mid-engine C8 Corvette. There may be different levels and models of the Mid-Engine, but we are specifically talking about the pricing of the first model to go on sale.
We have some ideas about where pricing will start and share those thoughts in a later post. Thanks for your input and please share with other Corvette enthusiasts so we can get the largest sample size possible.
