The renderings show coil springs, a gigantic rear subframe, a naturally aspirated LT1 engine and other details.
A few details of the rumored mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette may have come to light ahead of schedule, thanks to alleged leaked CAD renderings from the project.
Posted and quickly pulled down from CorvetteForum, the images show the engine, suspension system and massive subframe from a mid-engine car.
Forum member 'firebirdfan' reposted the pulled images and listed a few notable observations including coil springs, an LT1 engine and no visible turbochargers.
General Motors is reportedly planning to reveal the mid-engine C8 'Vette sometime next year. The initial launch package is expected to be a ZR1-spec trim, while the Zora badge is said to be reserved for a high-performance package honoring the late Corvette pioneer Zora Arkus-Duntov.
The mid-engine car is not expected to begin rolling off the assembly line until 2019.
