Rumors are spreading about the brand new 2020 Corvette C8, here at Primary Exotics we collected information online and we’re here to help you form your own opinions of the countless renders created, leaked sightings, and estimated information.
From what we have researched, the Corvette C8 sounds like it’s going to be just as fun as a supercar. The mid engine designs allows the car to maintain a lower center of gravity, ultimately improving handling and performance. It is also rumored that the Corvette will feature 4 wheel independent suspension with an optional magnetic ride control, further improving handling and control. Although the only con may be that the new Corvette will be wrapped up in the same tires as the last model.
So you may be wondering, when are we finally going to be seeing the real deal?
The Corvette C8 is scheduled to be released on July 18th, it’s also rumored that a model of the Corvette will be able to push out 1,000 horsepower and hit 0-60 in only 2.5 seconds. Hopefully for the gear heads they create a manual transmission to enjoy those windy weekend roads, but as of now, it looks like Chevy won’t be featuring a manual transmission paired with the new Corvette.
As mentioned above, it is possible the Corvette will create as much as 1,000 horsepower, after all you could buy a 1,000 horsepower Tahoe, so I have great expectations for the Corvette. If the 1,000 horsepower sounds like too much for you in the Corvette C8 Zora, don’t worry! There are other options to choose from:
- Corvette C8 Z06 with a 5.5-liter, V-8, over 600 horsepower
- Corvette C8 ZR1 with a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter, V-8, with more than 755 horsepower
- Corvette C8 Zora, twin-turbocharged, V-8 and an electric motor at the front to create 1,000 horsepower
By this point, you may be wondering, how will this car even look? Here are some of the renders we have seen on the internet predicting what the car is supposed to look like:
What do you think? Would you want to own one?
So what would it take to actually own one? From the research we have done, the starting price of the Corvette will be around $60,000 – $70,000 and the performance model; ZR1, is estimated to cost $118,900
No one could say for sure what car is going to look like and cost, we are just going to have to wait until July 18th, but these renderings give us a pretty good idea of what to look forward to, and I’m excited! Although I’m not looking to buy the new Corvette, I can’t wait to see them on the street, and talk to the owners to see what they have to say about it!
Keep an eye out on July 18th!
