A test mule for what appeared to be a mid-engine model of some sort was spotted at a General Motors Company [NYSE:GM] proving ground in early 2015.
Since then the rumor mill has been quiet but Car and Driver has managed to dig up a few new details from one of its sources.

Contrary to previous claims, also from Car and Driver, that the new Corvette, a C8 to all the fans, would bow in mid-engine guise in 2017 initially in high-performance ZR1 trim, the popular publication now reports the new Corvette will debut in 2018, at that year’s Detroit Auto Show. And instead of ZR1 trim the car is said to be initially arriving in base trim.
