My buddies have been ribbing me about this new mid engine thing for a long time now. I kept saying for a while it only made sense to do it if they kept the front engine layout and ran it in tandem with this mid engine platform. Either as two separate types of Vettes, or the mid engine thing is a Vette halo or Cadillac halo car. I guess we'll see what happens, but I really can't see the price being less than $90,000 at the very least if it's mid engine only.

That's always been a common theme with a lot of cars even with normal redesigns, rather than something this big. Vette's have had problems with even slight redesigns over the years. They've had engine problems with the C5, C6, and, C7's.
