GM Boss Mark Reuss Rides Shotgun In Convoy Of 2020 Corvette C8 Prototypes

A fleet of six Chevrolet C8 Corvettes were recently outed during a testing run in Arizona and riding shotgun in one of them was GM president Mark Reuss.

Chevrolet has been testing the mid-engined Corvette for more than four years now and while many of its prototypes continue to be wrapped in thick camouflage and body cladding, renderings have provided us with an excellent idea of how the supercar will look.

However, that’s not to say this spy video doesn’t provide is with some new details about the C8 Corvette. Most notably, up-close images of the vehicle’s roof seem to confirm that just like the current C7, the new C8 will have a removable roof. It’s also pretty cool to see the president of General Motors taking a ride in one of the prototypes and cracking a big smile in the process.

Dear, Corvette. Can you please release the C8?

The mid-engined Corvette has been a long time coming and for decades, seemed to be nothing more than wishful thinking. Now, with the launch of the supercar nearly upon us, it’s time to get ready for a U.S.-supercar which could shake up the entire industry and force establish supercar manufacturers to step up their game.

In recent months, numerous elements of the C8 Corvette have surfaced. For starters, we recently caught a glimpse of the car’s redesigned Corvette badge and a few months ago, snapped photos of the car’s interior in all its glory.

Chevrolet is clearly gearing up to launch the C8 Corvette but before it does, it may roll out a lengthy teaser campaign for the vehicle. Either that or it will follow in the footsteps of the Ford GT and premiere the car out of the blue.
