Spy photographers have recently captured photos of a bright yellow 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray with a rather peculiar gray stripe (not pictured). This has led to speculation that the engineering team has already gotten around to testing a Grand Sport model, which would theoretically slot above the “base” Stingray model and beneath a Z06, if we look at today’s Corvette name hierarchy. However, what does that do to the Stingray’s Z51 Performance Package?
Visually, there doesn’t seem to be any differences between this striped C7 and the ones we saw up close at the Detroit Auto Show, except for the lack of Stingray badging. In addition, Chevy currently does not include a stripe as an color option for the Corvette C7 online.
Is it enough to make you believe that a Corvette Grand Sport is right around the corner? Or do you see this as simply a more decorated Corvette than the rest of the prototype fleet? Sound off in the comments below. For a full gallery, visit Autoblog.
