Soon find out what type of engine the C 8 Corvette will use. I think since its the European style layout they'll go in the direction of the twin turbo style engine. The C 7 will likely retain the push rod engine.

"Fear not, pushrod V-8 fans, your pet engine is secure. We expect the mid-engine Vette to bow with a successor to today’s 6.2-liter LT1 pumped up to 600 horsepower with higher compression, more aggressive valve timing, and less restrictive exhaust. Dry-sump lubrication will facilitate mounting the engine low in the chassis. Other propulsion sources will follow, topping out at 1000-plus hybrid horsepower, with a twin-turbo V-8 driving the rear wheels and an electric motor powering the front wheels. The four-cam, 32-valve V-8 is a fantasy prompted by the LT5 designation assigned to the 2019 755-hp supercharged pushrod ZR1. GM power mongers have acknowledged interest in offering a flat-plane crankshaft V-8 mimicking the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350’s but without the frightful shake. Don’t be the last on your block to sell your Ferrari stock! "
