The C8 Corvette Stingray is the latest Corvette generation that stands on the foundation of affordability and performance. Despite having an entry-level value, the C8 can match some of its favorite sector rivals.
There’s an undeniable leap from the specs and designs of the C8 compared to its C7 predecessors. It is a remarkable innovation that made the supercar a big hit in various markets across the globe.
Recently, a documentary was published to give Corvette owners and enthusiasts a glimpse of how the C8 Corvette was born. This video featured the design team of the C8 and was filmed in the GM Design Center in Warren, Michigan.
This documentary revealed that fighter jets are among the key “inspiration” when developing the C8 Corvette. It indicated that the transition from front to mid-engine is the appropriate course for the C8 to continue improving its performance. Overall, the video suggests that the C8 represents the culmination of the decades of research, development, and experimentation by Chevrolet to create a high-performance vehicle.
Despite the issues that C8 Corvette encountered this year due to the pandemic, Chevrolet is finally back on track. Production for the 2021 model year of C8 has begun, and deliveries have started. Since GM committed to an “all-electric future,” we can expect a future generation of Corvettes to be electrified!
