The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette has been snapped on the factory floor, revealing its angular new rear end treatment.

A photo posted on Corvette Forum shows the car's angular tail-lights and rear diffuser design, along with the large 'vents' flanking the number plate mount.

Whether they're functional or not remains to be seen, of course, but the car's mid-engined powertrain could necessitate extra cooling at the rear. Stay tuned.

How do we know it's mid-engined? Well for one, spy photos have revealed the car's proportions are decidedly mid-engined... but looking at these images, there are more hints.


UPDATE: The new Corvette has now been revealed, and confirmed for Australia. Click the links for the full story.

Where previous Corvettes have had rear windscreens that end essentially at the rear spoiler, this one appears to have a much longer rear deck and a cabin that's much further forward on the body.

The tail-lights and exhaust detailing both feature similar graphics to those of the Camaro, although the car could have its own distinct feel when viewed as a whole.

The rumour mill is turning relentlessly in the USA, given the hype surrounding anything Corvette-related.

Car and Driver has reported the base C8 Stingray will be powered by a 373kW version of the existing 6.2-litre V8 engine, hooked up to an automatic transmission. It appears the manual may be dead.

The car will be revealed in full on July 18.
