NEW: Mid-engine Corvette spy photos show more production cues

Another, more production-looking C8 Corvette mule was spotted in camouflage on Wednesday near Cadillac, Michigan. That's a far cry from the company's proving grounds in Milford, meaning the prototype mid-engine Corvettes must be on a road-trip test run.

The new shots show a true mid-engine look with a shorter hood and long, sloping rear end, presumably where the engine sits. Its shape looks a lot like a Ferrari 458/488 to us, which bodes well for the upcoming supercar. Speaking of engines, there are a lot of choices for this next world beater; the 650-hp LT4 comes to mind, but a simpler LT1 with 500 horses or so could also work. The other big question we have is price. Will it be a budget mid-engine lightning bolt or a nuclear-powered track monster a la Porsche 911 GT2? That could mean the difference between $100K and $200K. Those different wheels also look like production pieces.

We're hoping to see the new 'Vette at the 2018 Detroit auto show, when we assume more information will become available.

The photos were taken by Woodward Facebook group member Josh Busenbark, and they were pointed out to us by reader Adam. Thanks, guys!
