2020 Chevrolet Corvette delayed over chassis flex - report

The eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette will shift from its traditional front-engine rear-wheel drive setup to a mid-engine layout. Initially expected debut in the early part of 2019, the radically redesigned sports car has reportedly been pushed back to the end of year. Sources have told Hagerty three reasons for the delay: bugs in the new electrical architecture, flexing of the car's structure in high-power variants, and disagreements between designers and engineers.

GM patents three active aero technologies

Three filings from General Motors with US Patent and Trademark Office detail new devices designed to alter airflow around and through a car. These patents were initially discovered and published by Corvette Blogger. Although the diagrams feature the current seventh-generation Corvette, it seems more likely these items may make their debut on the next-generation model, which, if rumours and spy photos prove to be accurate, will switch to a mid-engine layout.

Corvette ZR1: 0-60mph in 2.85 seconds

Chevrolet has touted the 2019 Corvette ZR1 has the "fastest, most powerful production Corvette ever" – but we didn't realise just how much faster it is than previous iterations. According to a new report, Harlan Charles, product manager for Corvette, confirmed with CorvetteBlogger the ZR1 is capable of some serious acceleration times. How serious? Try 0-60mph (0-96km/h) in just 2.85 seconds. How about 0-100mph (0-161km/h)? Just 6.0 seconds flat.

Chevrolet Corvette firms as Holden's new V8 sports car

The man in charge of General Motors in our region has given the best indication yet that the Chevrolet Corvette is the V8 sports car destined to fly the performance flag for the company post-Commodore. At the beginning of this year, General Motors International president Stefan Jacoby revealed the brand would introduce “something which truly fulfils the requirement of a true Holden sports car” after local production of V8-powered Holden Commodore performance models wraps up at the end of 2017.
