Great things are coming for the all-new 2020 Corvette C8, which has only been unveiled in base Stingray spec thus far. Still, even at its �lowest�, the mid-engine C8 is capable of extremely impressive things, such as reaching 96 km/h from a standstill in under 3 seconds. So what does this mean for future versions of the car? Well, they will undoubtedly feature more power, as you would expect from a Z06 or a flagship ZR1 model.
According to unnamed sources from within GM, the C8�s new chassis has been designed with electrification in mind, meaning that mild- and plug-in hybrid versions are in the cards, with a potentially fully electric model also within the realms of what�s possible.
Now, if acceleration is your main concern, you could also argue in favor of an electric motor mounted in front so as to provide the C8 Vette with all-wheel drive � such a setup would make plenty of sense on a track-oriented spec like the ZR1.
As for what such a car might look like if past ZR1 models are any indication, we can expect more hardcore aerodynamic bits to be strapped on � like a massive rear wing, more pronounced spoiler lip up front, beefy side skirts and so on. Or, what we�re seeing here in this rendering by X-Tomi, which is unfortunately missing the current ZR1�s blacked-out A-pillars.
Inside, it should boast a more racy design, with standard body-hugging seats, more Alcantara throughout and other unique touches. Performance will remain a mystery for the time being, but we expect that a future flagship Corvette C8 model will be able to hang with any other supercar in the world.
