About 2 hours ago, CNN Business stated the new 'Vette will be revealed 7/18/2019...

FOX News has just announced the same:

(I'm not caring much for its silhouette...in 'camo' anyway.)

I'd get a last year C7 myself.
I like the way you think.

after some time passes and all vettes become mid engine, it wont be long before the last version of the front engine vettes will be coveted and start going up in price, kind of like what happened with the last of the air cooled Porsches

C8 Mid Engine should be a great daily driver and track car. I will be ordering one for the track ! I hope it will be under $100k .

Having racked up 50,000 miles on a '12 C6 Corvette as a daily driver, I would recommend folks visit their local GM dealer and spend half-day there to see if you like it.

The economics of a Vette are such that every dollar goes into the engine/transaxle and literally pennies go into rest (ie, plastic door locks)

I have a GMPP Factory 7yr/100K warranty that has seen heavy use; even my glove box had a warranty claim. All well-known documented issues with 10+ pages on CorvetteForum. Car was serviced by the book by one of best Master-Techs at largest So_Cal Corvette dealers.

Will be dropping it off shortly at CarMax and getting more than similar vintage BMW 3-Series, Boxster, Benz, etc

Cant imagine anything changed in 6 years; (C7 has same issues, and worse eg, e-diff).

If ur driving it from Cul-de-Sac to Office Park and Sunday drives less than 10K lifetime miles, dont worry.

Maybe I was lucky but had C5, C6 and C7–zero issues.

On the list, but looking for the top end model which I doubt will be available out of the gates.
