Leaked Chevrolet C8 Corvette Schedule Shows 1,000 HP 'Zora' Model In 2025

Hagerty has gotten its hands on a supposedly leaked schedule of release dates for each upcoming trim of the new mid-engine

Chevy C8 Corvette . It shows a range-topper is due to drop in 2025 as a 1,000 horsepower hybrid called the “Zora,” so that’s cool.

Here’s what’s on the document Hagerty claims to have come across:

The $59,995 C8 Corvettes Are 'Virtually Non-Existent' At Dealers: Report

The $59,995 C8 Corvettes Are 'Virtually Non-Existent' At Dealers: Report

I’ve a thought about the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette and it’s this: the car is

really great at a lot of things , but perhaps its biggest draw is that it’s a 500-horsepower, V8 midship sports car for under $60,000. There’s just one problem. It doesn’t seem like there are any for that cheap anywhere.

We reported the new mid-engine Corvette to

start at an astonishing $59,995 . But now that production...

Someone Already Broke A Modified 2020 Corvette At The Drag Strip

Someone Already Broke A Modified 2020 Corvette At The Drag Strip

Deliveries of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette have finally begun, which means we’ll soon start seeing them on public roads and, uh, at the drag strip. This modified example, belonging to LG Motorsports, is quite possibly one of the first mid-engine Corvette casualties. Excluding

that one that ate it during a snowy day , of course.

As our friends at Road & Track tell it, LG Motorsport got it hands...

The C8 Corvette's Tachometer Changes After The Car's Broken In

The C8 Corvette's Tachometer Changes After The Car's Broken In

Freshly minted motors need to be broken in gently so all their fast-moving components seat properly. The C8 Corvette uses its fully digital gauge cluster to remind you of that, which is kind of neat.

This YouTube clip from a Jeremy Welborn popped up in the Oppositelock Facebook Group via member Todd W., showing how the Corvette’s redline changes once the car’s passed a 500-mile...

See The Bones Of The 2020 Corvette In This Sweet Cutaway

There’s only so much you can talk about a car in theory before you need to see things in cutaway or exploded view. Thankfully, the Chevy team brought a cutaway model of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette at the

official launch last week and we got to take a closer look.

The Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Started Life As This Freaky Holden Ute

The one pressing question I had during the official launch of the

2020 Chevrolet Corvette had to do with time. The car is new for 2020, but it has been talked about since at least 1960. When exactly was the project finally green-lit? When could the people involved finally, emotionally invest in turning myth to reality? The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Doesn't Drive Like Other Mid-Engine Sports...

Jalopnik Reviews All of our test drives in one convenient place.

I can’t think of a car that has been more hyped, argued, and picked apart than the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette. The C8 Corvette. The mid-engined one. After 60 years of waiting, I sort of expected it to emit a faint glow, perhaps shoot rainbows from its tailpipes. There will be time later for the think pieces and the philosophical...

Detroit: 1; Chevrolet C8 Corvette: 0

Detroit: 1; Chevrolet C8 Corvette: 0

For those keeping score, Detroit currently leads the 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette by one point to zilch, due to the fact that a street-parked, mid-engine ‘Vette just had its wheels stolen. That makes Michigan’s overall score over the Corvette two-nothing, as

the first point was scored by snow . Chevrolet C8 Corvette Bows Down To Its New Lord: Snow

Why Motor Trend's Dyno Test Of The 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Revealed Huge But Wrong Power Numbers

Why Motor Trend's Dyno Test Of The 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Revealed Huge But Wrong Power Numbers

Back in October, Motor Trend wrote that, during its dyno testing, a 2020 Chevrolet Corvette had made horsepower and torque numbers well above the rated 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft. The publication concluded then that the car “produces more power than what Chevy claims.” But now in a new follow-up, the team admits that it conducted the testing improperly. Here’s why the figures were so high.

Chevrolet C8 Corvette Bows Down To Its New Lord: Snow

Look, I get it. For many cars, snow is kryptonite. You lose grip, the weight transfer gets all funny and you can’t really steer or brake well. Each year, snowy conditions claim countless cars, and not even the C8 Chevrolet Corvette is godly enough to escape the snow’s wrath.

Yesterday, Michigan got at least six inches of snow in certain parts. Some cars weren’t ready for it. One of them was...

How The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Repurposes Brake Parts For Front Axle Lift

How The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Repurposes Brake Parts For Front Axle Lift

Looking at a cutaway of the new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette shows us a lot about how engineers packaged many of the components, and one item that stands out is an aluminum block in the middle of the front crossmember. At first glance, it appears to be an ABS module, but all is not as it seems.

UAW Successfully Keeps Mid-Engine Corvette At Bay Until 2020

After

weeks of rumors , it’s finally been confirmed that production of the first-ever mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette has been pushed back to Feb. 2020, following the six-week UAW strike .

Stephen Strasburg Also Won A C8 Corvette But He'll Have To Wait To Drive It

Chevrolet gave a new C8 Corvette to the World Series’ most valuable player this year, which happened to be Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg. It’s the

first-ever mid-engine Corvette and also the first-ever Nationals win in the World Series, so it fits well. But Strasburg won’t get the car right away.

Strasburg won the car as part of the MVP award, with one marched out on the...

Dyno Test Of The 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Reveals Huge Power Numbers

Dyno Test Of The 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Reveals Huge Power Numbers

The folks at Motor Trend strapped the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette to a dynamometer to see if the 6.2-liter Small Block “LT2" V8 actually makes the stated 495 horsepower, 470 lb-ft. The websites findings?: “The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 provided for all our testing produces more power than what Chevy claims.”

I’m always hesitant to write things like “Dyno proves that [insert automobile]’s...

The 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Has Poor Forward Visibility: Data

The 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Has Poor Forward Visibility: Data

When the 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette moved its engine to sit behind the driver, I thought for sure its visibility would improve over the front-engine C7's. The hood’s shorter and doesn’t need to accommodate an engine, for crying out loud. But that’s apparently not the case, according to some very thoroughly gathered data.

Visibility out of a car is a big deal. You need to be able to...

Smaller Wheels, Smaller Engine, Bigger Speed: How The Corvette C8.R Differs From The Road Car

Smaller Wheels, Smaller Engine, Bigger Speed: How The Corvette C8.R Differs From The Road Car

When it first showed the 2020 Corvette C8, Chevy was proud of its magnetic shocks, aluminum suspension, choice 19-inch wheels, and big 6.2-liter V8. But when it comes to the actual race car, you won’t find any of that stuff. Everything gets smaller and simpler. Well, except for the gas tank.
