    Rumors about the mid engine continue with speculation now focused on when it will be revealed. Most sources are leaning toward the Auto Show in January 2019 in Detroit. It's Going Racing, Possibly with V6 Power While prototypes are out on public roads doing testing now, the racing version of the C8 was just spotted at Road America getting ready for the 2019 season. As with all Corvette race cars dating back to the C5-R, the C8.R will be built by Pratt and Miller and entered into the IMSA WeatherTech Series. A run at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2020 is possible, too.

    Audio recorded at the track reveals that the C8.R isn't packing a V8, but rather, an engine that sounds an awful lot like the turbocharged V6 from the Ford GT. What does that mean for the road car? Who knows. IMSA has let automakers enter race cars with different engines than their road-car counterparts. corvette-spy-photos/ yet-at-the-mid-engine-corvette/
