The 2020 mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette C8 will be officially unveiled on Thursday, but die-hards have already seen a leaked photo of the rear end, the car’s new flags logo, and an official image of the steering wheel. Now comes confirmation that when the cover is pulled off the car in Orange County, California, it’ll be called the Stingray.
“The 2020 Chevrolet will debut as a Stingray July 18, 2019. Did you know the second-generation Corvette debuted as a Sting Ray in 1963?” Chevrolet touts on its media site. “This nameplate ran until 1976”—now as one word on the C3, we’ll note—”and was then revived for 2014 to introduce the seventh-generation Corvette. Chevrolet is proud to announce the Stingray name will live on.”
The new logo and wordmark can be seen above, and a black Stingray badge and a few treatments of the Corvette name that will be used for the C8 can be found here and in the gallery below. We’re sure to be as wowed by this new Stingray as the other cars that have worn the name—and be sure to check back at at 5:15 p.m. Eastern and 8:15 p.m. Pacific on Thursday to be wowed by the long-anticipated all-new C8 yourself.
