Rumors of a mid-engine Corvette as a successor to the C7 Corvette have been flying all the way back since 2004, with the first spy shots coming out in 2005. Along the way, enthusiasts have made just about every guess you could imagine about what this next-generation Corvette would be.

First launched in 2010, the all-electric Nissan Leaf became one of the first mass-market full-EVs available for purchase. Nine years on, the Leaf has become the best-selling electric car in the world. The original Leaf was truly a cutting edge piece of technology at the time, but it also highlighted the problem with the developing segment of electric cars. With an original range of 73ish miles, the Nissan Leaf couldn’t do much more than short commuting duty.
Fast forward to February 2018, and the launch of the second-generation Nissan Leaf. The new Leaf debuted with a 40kWh battery pack and a 151-mile range, over double the original Leaf’s range. While this went a long way in solving the range anxiety problem for most, those of us who live in sprawling places like Texas still need a bit more range to feel comfortable.

I owned an F30 2016 BMW 340i MSport until last month and absolutely loathed the driving experience once the honeymoon wore off. I’m happy to report that the G20 platform in initial impressions goes a long way in correcting all that was horribly wrong in the F30.
