2020 Chevrolet Corvette: Probably better than the Pontiac Fiero

The industry’s worst kept secret is out: the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is making the switch to a new midengine, rear wheel drive platform.


The entry level model in the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette (C8) range is the Stingray, and it has a naturally aspirated 6.2L LT2 V8 with 495hp (369kW) and 470 lb-ft (637Nm).

There’s no manual transmission, just an 8-speed DCT. The 0-60mph time is under 3s when the car is equipped with the Z51 performance package.

Pricing will start from under US$60,000, making it roughly the same price as a Porsche 718 Cayman, which has a 2L turbo H4 with 296hp (221kW) and 280 lb-ft (380Nm).
