A Chevy Corvette Hybrid? If Ferrari and Porsche are going to do it, anybody is game.
Before everyone goes completely berserk here, there are no immediate plans to build a Chevrolet Corvette hybrid. Just don’t rule the idea out entirely. Consider this post your first warning that one day in the not too distant future, the beloved "Plastic Fantastic" will be offered with hybrid tech. The so-called hint, if you will, comes directly from General Motor’s North America President Mark Reuss in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times.
The paper asked him if there was a possibility of a Corvette Hybrid with a hint of sarcasm, but Reuss simply said "Don’t laugh." What’s more is that Reuss openly stated that he's a fan of that possibility believing such a car would be "attractive", "really fun" and that "people would love it." Now, Reuss is a true car enthusiast and we don’t believe he would allow the Corvette to go all Prius soft. Instead, he’s looking at what Porsche and Ferrari are doing with the new 918 Spyder and LaFerrari, respectively. More than likely, the currently new C7 Corvette won’t ever be offered with batteries, but the future C8 is a different story entirely.
