Chevrolet confirms 2020 Corvette will debut as Stingray

Chevrolet is rolling out the Stingray name once again for the launch of the 2020 Corvette with the reveal of the mid-engined sports car only days away.

With the reveal of the 2020 Corvette only a few days away, Chevrolet has revealed a Stingray logo for the thing with the following caption: “The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette will debut as a Stingray July 18, 2019. Did you know the second-generation Corvette debuted as a Sting Ray in 1963? This nameplate ran until 1976, and was then revived in 2014 to introduce the seventh-generation Corvette. Chevrolet is proud to announce the Stingray name will live on”.

Sitcking with the name Stingray wasn’t necessarily unexpected as it’s the name used for the base model car in the US now, but the shift to a mid-engined layout rather than a front-mounted engine gave some pause for thought.
