    Exclamation Chevrolet planning low-cost Corvette under Stingray?

    Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Chevrolet, Rumormill

    If you're burnt out on musings about the Chevrolet Corvette, you'll want to go ahead and skip this post. Motor Trend reports General Motors is hard at work on a low-cost version of the seventh-generation sports car for 2015. Rumored to be called the Corvette Coupe, the car will forgo the Stingray and skip the 450-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine in favor of a 5.3-liter V8 with under 400 ponies. If you're keeping track, that's a shade of the same engine found behind the headlights of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.

    The report also suggests the Coupe will receive a number of aesthetic tweaks to separate it from the Stingray, including different front and rear fascias as well as new front fenders and a rear diffuser. Motor Trend says the point of all this is to cut the car's price tag, which means we may see a Corvette on showroom floors for less than $50,000 if this car comes to fruition.Chevrolet planning low-cost Corvette under Stingray? originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 27 Feb 2013 13:31:00 EST.

    that's a beautiful car from the front to be so ass ugly from the back.......a low cost vette will be a flop. That's if you consider $40k+ low cost. If they get 400HP out of that 5.3 and some decent torque though it'll still perform on par with vettes that are 10-12 years old.
