We wonder if Corvette Forum’s server crashed at all this week, because they have been the center of attention with the latest CAD renderings of the C7’s engine bay, talks of an LSA-replacing small-block for the ZL1, and now this detailed CAD image of what appears to be the rear fascia of the C7. Yes, it matches the Jalopnik renderings exactly.
What we’re seeing here specifically is what we can reportedly expect from the “Z” variants of the new Corvette (Z06, ZR1, etc.) with its wide hips and brake cooling ducts. The lights are clearly not round, and resemble those seen in spy photos of the test mules, as does the quartet of center-mounted tail pipes. Of course, we could voice our opinions all day and night in the comment section below as well as our GM forum, but the best perspectives will come when we finally see the successor to the C6 early next year.
