https://portal4cars.com/bra...front-engine-layout/

A few journalists are saying the C9 is going back to
A front engine rear drive like most previous versions of Corvettes
Before the C8. They also claims C2 split window may return in the C9.

They just got the mid engine layout and now it’s

“Back to the future” apparently.

Obviously, the design depends on one's perspective but, I'm disappointed they don't want to work on the mid-engine design to work out his concerns. Seems such a waste to me to go backwards. But, that's my perspective.

It's like the metric system result. Some were too dumb, most were too lazy and some were too arrogant to change.

The GM management is too dumb. The Corvette community doesn't want a mid-engine. The car will be electric in the near future anyway, so why go front engine?

I am disappointed that the next Vette will not be 4WD with with a turbo 4 cylinder ( ike the now offer in the Silverado) and a CVT and the Cadillac super crusie drive system. I expect my design proposal to be offered to the public for sale by April 1st next year.

Also heard it might not be a Chevy.
Vette becoming "its own". Another April fools?

I don't care for the big ol' backend on the C8's body, would be happy to see it change at least in appearance. As for engine placement, Fiero got its extra attention already from it going mid , I'll never own a new Vette so I'm actually indifferent to what they do.

In other news, Biden is appointing DJT as acting President, citing the recent poor treatment and tough questions from the press.

"Mr. Trump is very good at this kind of thing. Since I can't decide what flavor of ice cream I like the best, I think this is a good move to improve the ratings of CNN.", the former vice president was quoted as saying.
