Right-hand-drive Corvette in doubt for Australia as GM stops development

The Chevrolet Corvette is in danger of not making it to Australia after General Motors in Detroit stopped engineering development of all vehicles during the COVID-19 lockdowns. A report out of the US – based on a leaked copy of a secret internal General Motors document – claims GM’s executive director in charge of program management, Michelle Braun, “recently issued a blanket order pausing all future car and truck development, including for the Corvette”.

First 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 arrives at Holden in Australia, but there’s a catch

The first 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 has landed in Australia, according to a post on Holden’s official Instagram page (pictured below). The new generation Corvette was photographed inside Holden’s engineering centre in Melbourne with test equipment and a Holden Acadia SUV in the background. It is the first sign of the iconic US sports car on Australian soil since Holden confirmed in July 2019 that it was headed Down Under.

2021 Chevrolet Corvette convertible spotted in the wild

The mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette convertible has been filmed in public while undergoing testing in the US. The video (bottom) was filmed by Brendan Macie and posted to his YouTube channel. While the coupe features manually removable targa roof panels, the convertible is thought to have an electrically-operated folding hardtop. At the eighth-generation Corvette's launch, Chevrolet ran a short teaser video of the new drop-top version, suggesting it will go on sale shortly after the coupe.

C8 Chevrolet Corvette spied, still looking very mid-engined

The next-generation 'C8' Chevrolet Corvette has been spied at the Nurburgring, wearing less camouflage to show off its new mid-engined shape. Up front, the headlights and ankle-breaking splitter share their basic DNA with those of the current Corvette ZR1, although the snub-nosed profile and air intakes on the rear flanks are dead giveaways as to where the engine is hiding.

2019 Chevrolet Corvette: Mid-engine supercar spied

The new mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette has been spied undergoing testing on a proving track. These slightly grainy photos were taken from afar, but seem to show a prototype vehicle using production body panels obscured by both camouflage wrap and a clip-on covering. The photos give further credence to the long-standing rumour the next-generation sports car will switch from the front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout used by the Corvette thus far to a new mid-engine layout.
