The side vents look a bit different, and the doors are filled with false body panels.

The big reveal for the C8 Chevrolet Corvette draws ever closer, but it seems prototypes – and Corvette fans armed with camera phones – are out en masse these days. A recent spotting was posted at, with the photos credited to a person known only as @Bluekts. A video also credited to @Bluekts was also posted by Corvette Nut on YouTube, which is where our screenshots come from.

We’re reaching out to @Bluekts for permission to share higher-quality photos here, but in the meantime, the shots are posted in a discussion thread at the MidEngineCorvetteForum. There’s also a bit more to see in an Instagram post from michigan_corvette_owners.

The video also lets us hear the Corvette’s engine, and it sounds pretty much like a current C7 to us. That fits with unconfirmed reports suggesting the mid-engined model will launch with the familiar 6.2-liter V8, which currently makes 460 horsepower (343 kilowatts) in the Stingray. Power output in the C8 should be close to that, though GM might inch the mill closer to 500 ponies.

By now everyone probably knows that July 18 is the big day for the new C8 Corvette. The covers will come off at an event in Southern California – an event over 50 years in the making. It should be quite a party.
