Chevrolet Drops Official Shots Of Corvette E-Ray
Chevrolet will unveil the hybrid, all-wheel drive Corvette E-Ray next week.
January 17 is the date to keep in mind, and there's a teaser video. That video shows that the car has a wider stance, side intakes, quad exhaust tips, and a lower front fascia.
Inside we see a button for "stealth mode" but we don't know what that does. It is probably an EV-only mode.
Rumors suggest the car will have an electric motor that drives the front wheels and a 6.2-liter V8 that drives the rears. Horsepower is expected to be around 650.
Check back next week for the full monty.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.
