Besides the performance packages for the Chevrolet Camaro, the hottest news out of Detroit is a potential Corvette C8 that boasts a mid-engine layout. That is probably not going to happen until the end of the decade, but it has already started to dominate headlines.

According to several reports, the mid-engine model would be making its debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.

Given the amount of buzz this has already generated, it would really help Corvette with attracting more customers.

Prior to that reveal, a certain Corvette ZR1 would be appearing next year before being sold as a 2018 model. Its prototype has already been spotted in the wild, and many sources believe that it would be the last of the Corvette C7 generation.

Then it would make way for the C8-gen, which according to some reports would have a plug-in hybrid model to take on the $156,000 Acura NSX as well. The Corvette currently starts at about $55,000 and tops off at about $86,000 for the convertible Z06. The ZR1 would take it way past $100,000.
