More than 60 years of racing heritage helped set the stage for a surprise debut on Wednesday night at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, alongside the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
We're at the Corvette launch event in Southern California, and Mark Reuss just revealed perhaps the most impressive stat yet: When the C8 Corvette Stingray debuts later this year, it will be priced under $60,000.
That is, frankly, a shocking deal.
Last week, Chevrolet surprised the automotive world by releasing several photos of the next-generation Corvette and announcing an official reveal date of July 18, 2019. Even though we'd caught camouflaged prototypes in the wild plenty of times, that was the first time Chevrolet had said anything on the record about the upcoming C8.
This will be the 15th time a Corvette has served as the official pace car, starting in 1978. It is also the 29th time a Chevrolet has led the field, dating back to 1948, when a 1948 Fleetmaster Six convertible paced the race. No other vehicle has served as the pace car more than the Corvette.
In the May 2018 issue of Car & Driver, the motoring publication focuses on future models from all walks of life. The C8 Corvette is one of them, and as you can tell from the renderings published by Car & Driver, it’s extremely close to the prototypes spied time and time again, on both photo and video.
