2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 sightings have become increasingly common since the start of the new year, a sign that (hopefully) GM is putting the final touches on its first mid-engine Vette.
The latest and most revealing sighting so far comes from California where a group of five Corvette C8s has been spotted testing in the hills outside San Diego along with a Corvette C7 and a previous-generation Porsche 911 — by the way, shouldn’t GM use the new 992 generation as a benchmark?
Interestingly, the fleet of mid-engine sports cars has been spotted by car reviewer and video photographer Tom Voelk who at the time was shooting the all-new Kia Soul. Needless to say, he stopped filming the Korean crossover and focused on the fleet of Corvettes.
While the test prototypes still wear the same amount of camouflage as during previous sightings, this is one of the best videos to watch if you want to see the 2020 Corvette in action — the film includes over a minute of car-to-car footage.
We’re sure most of you will be curious about the sound of the engine and chances are you’ll be slightly disappointed because the video’s sound quality is not great. That’s because Tom was caught by surprise and didn’t have a good mic on the camera. Nevertheless, he says “a lovely deep rumble” came from the engine.
Obviously, other people spotted the C8 Corvette fleet as well and got to take photos and videos, some of which managed to capture the sound of the engine. Yes, that V8 sound is just what you’d expect of a Corvette.
