As CorvetteBlogger points out, this should come as great news to consumers who were saddened by the removal of Laguna Blue. This should also blast a wave of nostalgia over long-time Corvette enthusiasts, who may recall when Admiral Blue was originally offered on the 1996 Corvette Grand Sport. In fact, if you were to notice the new 2017 Corvette Grand Sport photo teased on Chevrolet’s own website (which we convenient screen-grabbed for you) you would notice a similar paint scheme to that of the ’96 Grand Sport – Admiral Blue with red fender stripes and a white stripe up the center of the hood and roof.
While we’re very big fans of the new blue, we’re just as excited over the Watkins Glen Gray Metallic color option for the 2017 Grand Sport. We’re having a tough time deciphering which option we’d prefer over the other, so we’ll let you decide. Which would you choose, the exclusive Watkins Glen Gray Metallic, or the true to its roots Admiral Blue? Let us know in the comment section below.
