China launches 1958 Corvette replica ... and it's a plug-in hybrid

Chinese manufacturer Songsan Motors has launched a suspiciously recognisable new model, called the SS Dolphin. Unveiled earlier this week at the Beijing Motor Show, the designers of the hard-top convertible have apparently been inspired by the 1958 Chevrolet Corvette C1. The Chinese copycat car is powered by a turbocharged 1.5-litre plug-in hybrid combination and, according to the brand’s website, can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds.

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 Chevrolet Corvette C8 sells for $3 million at auction in the US

The first 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 has sold at auction for US$3 million (AUD$4.34 million). That's a massive $2.92 million more than the North American RRP of USD$74,995 (AUD$109,000) for the C8 bearing VIN 001. Australian pricing for the new Corvette is yet to be announced, but last month Holden teased us with a photo of a car being tested at its engineering facility in Lang Lang south-east of Melbourne, ahead of its scheduled showroom arrival next year.

Chevrolet C8 Corvette: Stingray name confirmed

Chevrolet has confirmed the eighth-generation C8 Corvette, set for a Friday reveal, will launch in ‘Stingray’ guise. The moniker was first used on the second-generation Corvette in 1963, before being dropped at the end of 1976. It made a return in 2014 to denote the entry-level variant of the C7 Corvette – the same role it'll fill within the new C8 range. The 2020 Stingray is set to be powered by an updated version of the current model's 6.2-litre LT1 V8, boosted to around 500hp (373kW).

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.
