Chevrolet has finally confirmed that a successor to its Corvette will arrive later this year.

The all-new C8 Stingray will be revealed on July 18.

We've seen countless spy photos of mid-engined prototypes and heard plenty of rumours regarding what form the new auto will take, and from the attached images of the camouflaged vehicle, we can see the new Corvette will indeed be mid-engined. Chevy also confirmed on Thursday that the final C7 Corvette, a 2019 Z06 finished in black, will be sold for charity. The Stingray will then be joined by higher-performance variants, including a 5.5-litre flat-plane crankshaft V8 Z06, 5.5-litre twin-turbocharged ZR1 and flagship Zora model that will augment the potent bi-turbo mill with hybrid electrification and produce over 740kW of power. But as good as the C7 is and has been, it has been slightly overshadowed by the imminent and much-rumored mid-engined C8, which we first saw spy photos of-and thus got confirmation of-in 2015. A dual-clutch seven-speed automatic gearbox supplied from Tremec is slated to be the only transmission choice-unfortunate news for #savethemanuals diehards like us.

We hear Chevrolet will hold the line on pricing for the 2020 Corvette, despite its monumental philosophical shift and abundance of new technology. There's no official on-sale date yet, but given that Chevrolet is already rolling out a "Next-Generation Corvette" page on its consumer website, we feel certain that the order books will open by the end of 2019 at the latest.
