You may already know that GM President of North America Mark Reuss kicked off the Chevrolet press conference during last week’s L.A. International Auto Show. And while the main announcement — that we could drive the C7 Corvette virtually on Sony PlayStation’s Gran Turismo 5 — was widely publicized, it seems that no one picked up on Reuss’ remarks about the next-gen Corvette:
2012 is turning out to be another great year for Chevrolet… and 2013 promises to be even bigger. We’ll be launching 13 new models next year — including the all-new Silverado and Impala.
It all starts January 13 th when we introduce the next generation Corvette in Detroit.
All I can tell you right now is that the new Corvette will offer an entirely new driving experience – one that’s refined, and redefined.
There are just a handful of engineers authorized to drive the Corvette test vehicles on our proving grounds . And you can tell right away which ones they are – they’re the ones wearing permanent smiles.
Reuss then went on to introduce President of Polyphony Digital and professional racecar driver, Kazunori Yamauchi.
The GM Authority Take
“An entirely new driving experience — one that’s refined and redefined” sounds good to us. As does a permanent smile.
We can’t wait for the C7 Corvette’s unveiling on 1/13/13 at the Detroit Auto Show; we will be on site to bring you the latest from the show.
