2018 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Updates
So, what’s new about the Stingray, anyway? Well, aside from the fact that it is using the mid-engine arrangement with a powerful boost, the Corvette C8 (ZERV, the code name) will be designed based on the model of the 1960s Zora Arkus Duntov CERV mid-engine concept as a way of honor and respect. If everything goes as planned, this 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will be introduced during the 2018 Detroit North American International Motor Show taking place in January. Starting price may start from $80,000. After all, it is a sporty ride, anyhow and it shows only the good stuff.
It is expected that the C7 Corvette will stop producing once the C8 starts in the making. However, if you prefer the more traditional power and performance, there should be still enough stock for the C7. The C7 alone will still make an appearance during the NAIAS 2017 with the ZR1 badge – for the special edition; it is most likely.
