    What do you guys see here? Is the transmission behind the engine and is that a radiator or a bumper behind the transmission? Are those cadalytic converters over the transmission?

    Is that the firewall to the left of the transmission or is that the rear bumper honeycomb? Or is it a radiator out back? To the left of the transmission?

    Who can tell?

    Yes trans is rearward, airbox behind that. Radiator or bumper not shown.


    Are those cadalytic converters over the transmission?

    Yes.


    Is that the firewall to the left of the transmission or is that the rear bumper honeycomb?

    Neither.


    Or is it a radiator out back? To the left of the transmission?

    No. Radiator expected to be in front, in the Frunk.


    Who can tell?
    See above.

    I thinks it's highly likely that GM are the ones leaking the info. The whole 'cease and desist' lawyer thing is to give an air of legitimacy to the notion that it's an actual unauthorized leak. It's just part of the hype train that's pulling out of the station. Just like the spy shots that are really 'photo opportunities' stage by various manufacturers.

    Surely if this is being launched at Detroit, then some 'official' teasers should surface soon. I actually think the Geneva Auto Show in March would be a better place to launch it, so as to serve notice to the Europeans that Corvette (as a Brand) is expanding, and is about to take names. Not that Corvette hasn't already been taking names, but the few that thought they were safe are about to get served.

    Actually that's ingenius....launch the corvette brand in Europe would be cool as hell...lol

    An all electric cuv the size of a Macan with blistering performance....as well as the rear mid engine c8...

    Won't happen but it would be cool under the corvette banner in a boutique type sales distribution system...

    Jaguars new i pace all electric cuv is going to outstrip supply and all other jaguar sales as soon as production constraints are dealt with....

    The price tags a little high starting at 76 grand and reaching to 92 thousand...

    GM could easily beat the performance of the i pace and the price point as well..

    Whoever produces a Macan priced all ev performance cuv starting at fifty grand will hold the new title of best seller in that price segment...

    Optioning up the vehicle should add tens of thousands just like Porsche does...to the Macan..

    Actually the corvette team does a good job at this as well...

    The base msrp of the c7 is 56 grand and will in its final year of production reach up to around 140 grand as a fully optioned zr1...

    Where did you see the pricing for the I-Pace? They originally were talking about 10-15% higher than a similar optioned F-pace, so I thought mid $50K to mid $80K. Even at the price you quoted they'll sell every one IMO.

    Re: The Corvette in Europe. CORVETTE as a name has huge brand equity, and long term I'd have a small front engined RWD AND AWD MANTA RAY, the traditional front Engine (STING-RAY) RWD C7 Type Vette and the forthcoming C8 ME 'MAKO' Vette. They also need a Panamera competitor and a CUV/SUV. The of course some kind of Electric Vette.

    Btw. The I-Pace production has been sub contracted out to Magna in Graz Austria, so if demand is better than expected I'm sure Magna/JLR have a contingency for that particular scenario.

    There's a rumor that the R8 is done by 2020.

    Seems Audi thinks 2019 will be a good year for GM ME cars.

    My build and price was $204K, I think GM will beat that by a bunch and have more than their 610hp, too.

    These pictures look like someone, maybe non-GM employee on a tour/visiting, snapped the pictures from a workstation or two with their cellphone.

    Heck, it could have been the custodian no one pays attention to.

    Re: Code name ZERV

    I'm shocked, just shocked that it appears to be a DOHC.

    There is some expectation of a sub 4.0L version for racing purposes, but that may only apply to factory race team versions.

    I'm gonna really laugh if the biggest motor does turn out to be 5.5L.

    Note the apparent integrated exhaust in the head a la 3.6L LFX/LGX that stubs out directly to a turbo on each side.

    No boat style upswept headers like on the NA version.

    Re: Code name ZERV

    Don't be too shocked just yet, we don't know who's getting what version. Corvette may get the NA & SC OHV, and Cadillac may get the TT DOHC. Or they are all for Cadillac, or they are all for Corvette, or they are just testing this and that and will end up with just one or the other. The possibilities are endless. We could even end up with nothing because the program gets cancelled due to whatever reason.

    A note from the front page article:

    This is not correct. What looks like "a rear, centrally mounted intercooler" is actually the airbox, as you will note that it is situated before the turbos in the intake plumbing. The two large, purple "plenum" boxes atop the engine are air-to-water intercoolers, much like the intercoolers that sit on top of the upside-down superchargers of the current OHV V8s like the LSA, LS9, LT4, and LT5. You can tell that this is so, due to the red and blue water pipes joining the two heat exchangers at the rear of the engine. Where that water is ultimately plumbed to in order to shed its heat back into the air stream, I do not know.
