The seven generations of this emblematic sports auto have all had one key aspect in common: a front-mounted engine spinning the rear wheels. The auto, which has a twin-turbocharged V8 hybrid powertrain, is said to be able to deliver as much as 1,000 horsepower.

While it's not clear yet if those technical problems have been overcome, a Corvette dealer in New Jersey was taking $1000 deposits for the new model, even before the reveal date confirmation. We now also know that it will retain its signature V8 engine as well as the Stingray moniker which it revived for the seventh generation auto that was launched in 2014.

This vehicle is expected to cost significantly higher than the outgoing model, given how much it has changed from the outgoing generation.

While Chevrolet has not released images of the auto, it has allowed a peek at the steering wheel, which is more modern-looking than ever with steering-wheel mounted controls and the gearshift paddles just behind. Join us for a look at the prototypes the eighth-generation Corvette shares its lineage with. "The power-steering behavior proved how good power steering can be, and should be, on all cars-the ratio was very quick, the effort moderate, and the feel precise".

Chevrolet said July 8 the Corvette C8's full reveal on July 18 in Orange County, California will be livestreamed online, at 10:30 EDT (7:30 PDT).
