As you already know, the Corvette plant in Kentucky no longer offers guided tours because it’s in the middle of retooling in preparation for the C7 ZR1 and the C8 “ZERV,” which will up the ante with supercar credentials. General Motors has high hopes for the next-generation model, which has been spied in Michigan duking it out with a manufacturer-plated Porsche 911 Turbo S.

The prototype of the C8 Corvette the automotive media refers to as “ZERV” is fully camouflaged. But on closer inspection, parts of the vehicle such as the front fascia, headlights, profile, roof, and side mirrors appear to be ready for production. Road & Track’s spy photographers caught not one, not two, but three C8 prototypes followed by an immaculate-looking 911 Turbo S (991.2).

As the cited publication notes, the manufacturer plate on the Porsche is the work of Chevrolet, more so if you take into consideration that the golden bowtie has a habit of buying 911s for benchmarking against the Corvette. When the C7 was in development, for example, Chevy purchased a Carrera S.

In stark comparison to the centrally-positioned quad exhaust pipes of the C7, the mid-engine prototypes feature two tailpipes at each end of the rear bumper. In comparison to the square-ish pipes of the 911 Turbo S, the C8 Corvette “ZERV” features round tips as one might find on the Lamborghini Huracan. In terms of stopping power, the test vehicles are fitted with steel rotors instead of performance-oriented carbon ceramic brake discs.
