The 2014 Corvette Stingray is in customer hands, but that doesn’t mean development work on the car has stopped. Chevrolet will continue to roll out variations of the car, like the Z06, as production continues. But an LSXTV reader may have uncovered a new variation of the Stingray while driving near Oklahoma City, the Grand Sport.
The car is wearing a Corvette Z06 front bumper, but with regular Stingray wheels and a narrower track. This leads us to speculate it is either a Grand Sport model, or a Z06 test mule. Either way, Chevrolet is using the car to gather data, as the trunk is filled with data logging equipment and a deep-cycle battery.
“When I first saw it I was really hoping it was a Z06 in test camo,” the reader who took the photos, Mark Morris, said. “When I got closer I noticed the body work looked too narrow to be that.”
The vehicle was on a transporter with several other General Motors vehicles, including a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. Maybe it’s a former C7 test mule heading for retirement, or Chevrolet might have a Grand Sport model up its sleeve. What do you think is hiding beneath this mysterious Stingray’s camouflage? Let us know in the comments.
