    This is prime time for Corvette fans and, for that matter, any enthusiast seeking Ferrari performance at a friendlier price. With the baton about to be passed from C7 to C8, design and engineering teams are striving to create Corvettes that will wrack nerves in Maranello. To tide you over until the final C7 Stingray and first C8 roll forth, heres an opportunity to bone up on Corvette lore: 10 milestone experiments that gave Chevy the confidence to engineer the eighth-generation Corvette with a mid-engine layout.

    Took a long time - the CERV1 was Chevrolet's take on the '60 Cooper T54 which finished 9th at Indianopolis following the F1 switch to rear-engine from '59

    The four rotor wankel mid engine corvette was my favorite as a teenager. I'm excited to see the 500 hp LT1 mid engine corvette coming out in the next few years. The c7 is awesome but very similiar to the previous generation..

    The new mid engine c8 outdoor be off the chart crazy to drive. Probably track about the same as the c7 z06 or grand sport

    My personal favorite has always been the CERV III.
