At the beginning of 2009 Chevrolet informed its public of  a 2010 C7 corvette mid-engine.  From the beginning of time Corvettes always used standard engine placement (front). The 2010 is the first of its class using a mid-engine, this improvement will enhance the weight balance making the C7 Corvette better at cornering and braking.

The mid-engine layout, would most likely cost more than the existing model. Corvette purists would almost certainly decry such a major change, considering its impact on handling and exterior styling. Corvette engineers had major issues with the cost of a mid-engine layout. Rumors are that the engineers have found a way of making a mid-engine layout while keeping the price close to a fully loaded Corvette.

The C7 Corvette has been sent to production and is planned to be release 2010. Hoping to see it at the Le Mans next year showing off.

    This blog post is completely inaccurate. A mid-engine Corvette is all talk as it would cost more to produce and there wouldn't be any weight savings moving to the platform. It is also well known that the the C7 has been pushed back to 2014 at best.
