Information about the up-coming, mid-engine, C8 Corvette has been trickling out of GM with regularity, which is quite a change from the tight-lipped responses that many have received when asking anything about future product from Chevrolet.
The latest is today’s email that both celebrates the previous generations’ logos, as well as “officially” reveals the next-gen’s logo. Chevrolet let the cat out of the bag for a small group of enthusiasts inside the NCM Theatre at the NCM Bash. Corvette Chief Engineer, Tadge Juechter, along with Harlan Charles of Corvette Marketing and designer, Kirk Bennion, lightened the mood considerably by wearing shirts that mimicked the camo pattern that conceals much of the C8’s exterior, and has almost become the official color of the C8 Corvette. The trio offered up the new logo to those in attendance and shared a little bit about the recent reveal ceremony in New York.
Chevrolet seems to be going full-steam in promoting the next Corvette and Tadge even mentioned that it was a nice change from trying to hide the worst-kept secret in plain sight. With the recent frequency that tidbits have been forthcoming, we feel that there’s likely more juicy fruit waiting to fall from the tree before the big reveal on July 18, 2019.
Chevrolet has even devoted a web page to the upcoming Corvette. Quite a change for a car that didn’t officially exist just a few weeks ago. Stay tuned and we’ll bring you the latest on the mid-engine Corvette as we all look forward to the big day in July when the wrapper finally comes off!
