Porsche is doing it. So is Ferrari. Even Lamborghini is toying with the idea of hybrid supercars. So if all the cool kids are doing it, why shouldn't GM get in on the action of turning their sports cars into hybrids?
They may in fact be doing just that. After going out of their way to squash rumors about a mid-engine Corvette (where the engine sits behind the seats, rather than under the hood), GM vice president of global engineering Karl-Friedech Stracke let slip that the idea of a hybrid Corvette is “an interesting idea.” Interesting indeed.
