In a recent interview, GM North American President Mark Ruess confirmed the next-generation Corvette will be a truly global competitor that is completely different than the C6.

New details are starting to emerge about the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette.

In an interview with AutoCar, Mark Ruess - GM's North American President - said the redesigned sports car will be a truly global competitor that is "completely different" from the current model. Furthermore, design boss Ed Welburn acknowledged the C6's interior was disappointing but the C7 will have a cabin that is "absolutely world class."

While the executives declined to provide additional information, previous rumors have indicated the car could be mid-engined and adopt a turbocharged V6. GM has denied those reports, but hinted the model will be smaller, lighter, and possibly available as a hybrid.
