American Supercar

The Corvette has been an American sportscar for decades now. It has brought so many people around the world together for car shows, events, and gatherings. But this New 2020 Mid-Engine Corvette will do much more. The front-engine Corvette was something that people would spend tons of time talking about and the Mid-Engine Corvette will be the same way. Although the C8 Corvette has lots of hype, it also brings lots of unanswered questions surrounding this car.

C8 Corvette Hype

With the front-engine Corvette coming to an end, the C8 Corvette brings awareness and attention to other Mid-Engine sportscar owners. People are wondering what this New 2020 C8 Corvette will do for the sportscar market. Will it hurt Maclaren or Ferrari supercar owners? Will more people tend to buy a mid-engine supercar from Chevrolet or keep buying higher-end sportscars?

With those doubts come questions and with those questions well they want answers.

How much does the C8 Corvette weigh?

There’s been talk that the C8 Corvette could weigh anywhere between 3328-3600 pounds. My current C7 Corvette weighs 3428 pounds.

Does the C8 Corvette seat lower than the seventh-generation Corvette?

As being a C7 Corvette owner and seeing the Mid-Engine Corvette in person I will say that the C8 Corvette does seats lower than the C7.

How many 2020 Corvette allocations do dealerships get?

Another very popular question that people tend to ask is how many allocations does a dealership gets in order to sell the next generation Corvette. There is really no right answer to this question. This really depends on how many Corvettes the dealerships sell.

The most popular question of them all is will there be enough trunk space for those Corvette owners who like to take road trips? Trunk space really depends on the person and how much you would like to pack. After seeing the car in person I would say it does have lots of trunk space for me, but that can vary depending on the person.
