While the argument can be made that the Corvette has stumbled over the years, it remains an American icon and a premier muscle car. Now it looks like Chevrolet could be making some major changes sooner than later. Eagle-eyed car lover Jake Vandermoon caught what appears to be a trio of mid-engine Corvette’s at a McDonald’s in Michigan. It’s not very easy to glean much from the photos as Chevrolet has them nicely covered up to reveal as little as possible.

According to i4u.com, there have been rumors of Chevrolet making a mid-engine Vette to better compete against brands like Porsche and its 911 Turbo S. These likely means the new Corvette will reach supercar prices. While that does hamper many from actually buying one of these, we take solace in knowing it’s at least American made.

The design of this Vette certainly looks supercar like. The mid-engine placement and lines make it looks svelte and (despite the tarps) capable. It’s hard to tell but it does appear that there are air dams in the rear quarter panels. The overall stance of the car makes it look in a completely different class from the Corvette available now.

As of now, we know next to nothing about these cars. We can only try and peel back the tarps and cheetah paint and speculate as to what’s beneath. We do know that we’re excited to see what’s coming and hopefully, Chevrolet will unveil this car sooner than later. Also big props to Jake Vandermoon for having the sense to snap some photos of the beast.
