    I Just Saw Spy Photos of the Mid Engine Vette

    Our Autoguide office homies just got their hands on spyshots of the alleged Mid-Engine Corvette.

    They were snapped from almost a mile away so details aren't terrible forthcoming.

    It certainly seems like the greenhouse has been altered and what looks like a recessed air intake. No profile shots unfortunately.

    More to come...

    hmmmm, you sure this isn't a ZR1?

    Anybody else find it weird that there's an ATS Coupe testing as well?

    It looks too much the same to try to say it is otherwise to me too.

    The rear window looks smaller and vertical. Could be due to the mid engine layout.

    Autoblog has more.

    The interesting thing is there's multiple ATS' and a CT6 in the series of pictures. Something tells me else is going on and this is not the a Mid Engined C7. Could this be a commercial or a C7 based Cadillac?

In the first the Corvette appears humongous in relation to the Caddy, just really odd images. Almost feels like a bad photoshop.

    I believe the telescopic lends has something to do with that.

    I know nothing about photography so that could well be true, just odd that a lense would make things appear larger the further away they are. Totally counterintuitive.

    Well, looks like we can kill the conjecture, anyhow-this really is a thing.
