The bang-for-buck ration of the 2020 Corvette has swept the automotive real off its feet. After all, how often do you get 495 hp coming from the middle section of a machine that kicks off at around $60,000 and can play the 0 to 60 mph game in under three seconds?
Of course, this has all sorts of implications. For instance, while the Corvette Stingray isn't a Ferrari rival by any means, the affordability of the American supercar might change certain aficioandos' perception of Prancing Horses.
Then there's the effect the mid-engined Corvette might have on Chevy's go-gast lineup. The financial side of the newcomer might add fuel to the fire started by the rumors of GM preparing to axe the Camaro once the current generation goes to sleep.
