Default Prototype mid-engine Vette at Michelin

Hey Guys just a heads up the all new prototype vette will be at the Michelin test track this weekend and can be seen from the road doing testing if anybody is interested. insider info says it will be on the road course all weekend, not much security at Michelin tracks so it is real easy to walk in for a few snap shots.The test track is in Laurens sc and easy to find on Google earth, enter from hwy 221.

Which state is that test track in?

Or where is it? But thanks..

I believe we will see a new mid engine c8 this rumor mill time around...

It's happening this time I believe and I ve been reading about these rumors real time since the early 70 s....and every time since then....including the two rotary engine versions...

The car market has gotten so profitable....that gum will fund a mid engine corvette this time around...

Should be pretty cool although I have been a fan of the front mid engine c5 and c6 and c7...

Still I think a c8 mid rear engine will be on my must have list as long as it's not much more expensive than the present pricing structure...

I just personally think 6 figure cars are not reasonable for me to use as daily drivers.

Seems like the zr1 will celebrate the final year or two of the c7 ...and the. We will roll into a mid engine corvette
