This a Corvette C8 Stingray prototype with EPA exhaust tips, indicating that a powertrain update is in store for the base model C8.
According to sources, the C8 Stingray will gain more power for the ’24 model year, which would explain the presence of the EPA/EEA testing exhaust tips on this prototype. The powertrain changes are expected to put the C8 Stingray above the 500hp mark, which seems very feasible given that the car is currently rated at 495 hp with the optional performance exhaust system.
Going forward, the C8 stingray should receive a modest exterior refresh with a revised front/rear end along a revised Interior too.
Expect an official debut somewhere around Q1 of 2024.
