More Info on Mid-Engine Corvette Possibility

GM did their best to squash rumors of a possible mid-engine Corvette model:

Now, General Motors’ Karl-Friedrich Stracke, vice president of global engineering, has addressed the issue head-on, telling Automotive News just what we can’t expect to see on the next Corvette.

For starters, in regards to the possibility of a switch to the more advanced – and more costly – mid-engine setup, Stracke says, “I don’t know who made this public. I think it is wrong.”

Although Stracke’s answer isn’t exactly the most reassuring answer given its moderate level of ambiguity, additional clarification was offered by GM’s communications spokesman, Dan Flores, who said Stracke “quashed” the rumors. Flores added, “The rumors and speculation about the Corvette are just that. There is no mid-engine in the plans.” Flores also reiterated to Auto News that there are no plans for a wet dual-clutch transmission, either.

In the same sitting that GM set out to squash rumors, it appears as if they set out to create one as well. When asked about the possibility of a hybrid-powered Corvette – using similar performance enhancing approaches to Porsche – Stracke said, “That [hybrid] is an interesting idea.”

Information on Possible Mid-Engine Corvette

Left Lane News has released some information on the possible future-development of a mid-engine Corvette:

While speaking to a European trade magazine, a Saab engineer let slip that the former General Motors division was charged with developing a dual-clutch transmission for a “mid-engined version of the Corvette.” The wet-clutch transmission was being design to handle up to 590 lb-ft of torque.

It’s believed that Chevrolet had a fully engineered prototype of a mid-engine Corvette ready to be put on the production path, but the market crash of 2008 and GM’s subsequent bankruptcy but the brakes on the entire project.
