    If you want to keep up with the rest of the supercar industry these days, you've got to be playing around with active aerodynamics. And now GM is primed to throw its hat in the ring with the catchily-named "variable-width aerodynamic spoiler assemblies and control logic for motor vehicles."...

    New footage of the mid-engine Corvette has been posted online. The video comes from Driven Car Reviews which had the good fortune of filming where five C8s happened to be pulling over for a break. Not only were there C8s, though, there were also a handful of C7 Corvettes on hand as well as a...

    Rumors have long claimed that the GT500 and the C8 Corvette would share a manual transmission and an employee newsletter recently uncovered by Road & Track seems to suggest that this will, indeed be the case. The Tremec newsletter shows the TR-7007 and the TR-9007 dual-clutch transmissions...

    If the mid-engine C8 Corvette isn't arriving at the Detroit auto show next month, when is it arriving? Well, a new report says it won't be coming to the New York auto show either. The new report, from GM Authority, says that the C8 Corvette will arrive sometime in the summer. They quote a...

    The internet is agog, barely containing its speculative glee at photos of a new Cadillac key that were given to Jalopnik and The Drive. The pictures show an unusual key fob with many buttons, some of which lend themselves well to speculation. The key fob clearly has a Cadillac logo on one...

    Yesterday we pretty much found out what the C8 Corvette will look like, and now we know what it'll sound like thanks to a video uploaded by Jalopnik. The video features the same test cars as yesterday running laps around Germany's fearsome Nurburgring and the sound quality it pretty solid so...

    The mid-engine Corvette is just around the corner and the news keeps coming. This weekend we received the best photos yet of the upcoming 'Vette. Photos show a C8 completely wrapped in camouflage, but with non of the body-hiding cladding of previous shots. As a result, we now have a reasonably...

    Ever find yourself halfway through a corner wondering what's going on with your revs (or speed, or engine temp, or fuel, or etc) and find your view of the instruments blocked by the steering wheel? Well no longer shall your view be rudely cut off! says GM. A recent patent application filed with...

    A pair of mid-engine Corvettes have been caught testing in Colorado. The two cars were filmed driving ahead of a ZR1 by a YouTuber taking their Land Cruiser for a drive in the small town of Leadville. Leadville sits at nearly 10,000 feet above sea-level, so the Corvettes may have been running...

    Another video of the mid-engine Corvette has surfaced, showing the C8 accelerating from a stop. The pulls vary in intensity, with the 'Vette breaking traction on the second run. Unfortunately, the video doesn't reveal much about what's causing the acceleration-be it a standard push-rod V8 or a...

    Chevy might still be denying the very existence of a mid-engine Corvette, but that won't stop (in fact it encourages) the rumor mill from turning fast. The latest rumors surround the engine and just how much hp it'll pump out. Car and Driver published a report that was oddly light on sources...

    The mid-engine Corvette has been caught driving on public roads and now you can listen to what it'll sound like when the wraps come off. The video shows the test car taking off from stops and accelerating slowly. Unfortunately, you don't get to hear the engine howling, but you do get to hear...

    Well, we can confirm that the mid-engine Corvette will come with turn signals. That may not be much, but we actually can't confirm much more than that. Chevy won't even say that they're working on it. Even the leaks have been fairly restricted with one loose lipped dealer (the same one who gave...

    Although Chevrolet didn't officially confirm it, it appears the American automaker has teased a mid-engine Corvette to its dealers. The upcoming sports car might be the industry's worst kept secret, with numerous spy photos in recent years showing prototypes in various stages of testing. There...

    Ahead of its reveal later this year, the C8 Corvette-codename Emperor (ooh, I just got shivers)-has been caught testing on public roads. Still heavily camouflaged, the pair of Emperors were filmed by YouTuber prettyfast1000 (were there 999 prettyfasts before him?) from...

    Hey look, it's a mid-engine Corvette undergoing cold-weather testing.  This is the first time we've seen the C8 Corvette out and about since renegade operators spilled several of the program's secrets on the internet in late 2017--these also happen to be the best spy shots we've had of the next...
