The Mid Engine Corvette will compete against the Ford GT and not only win races but sales figures also.
The Mid Engine Corvette will be a third of the price compared to a Ford GT. The Mid Engine Corvette will be winning on Sundays and leave the GT to be an overpriced non-podium finishing brick! Yeah we're a little biased!
I can hear the noise now as Ford Motor Companies once mighty Ford GT profits and audience hit the floor like a large bag of Dearborn potatoes!
A Mid Engine Corvette can still carry the Corvette name and still live independent of the front engine cars and life cycle. GM has invested heavily in the plant in Bowling Green, KY and has increased the size of the plant substantially.
So much so we speculate that some of this size increase is to handle maybe the additional Mid Engine assembly line. We also speculate it may have a more hands-on assembly process. Maybe a build your own experience similar to the engine build.
We expect the current C7 Corvette to end production July 2019 and a Mid Engine Corvette out in January 2020. What happens next with the front engine platform is yet to be determined.
