However, the publication quickly backtracked with new information stating the super Corvette would indeed be absent from the event. Now, it has a new prediction for the world.
C/D believes the 2018 C7 Corvette ZR1, and its shiny, new 6.2-liter LT5 DOHC V8 engine, will be revealed at the Continental Tire Road Race Showcase, an IMSA event, at Road America this coming August. Once again, the publication cites unnamed sources for the latest debut rumor, so it’s truly anyone’s guess as to when we will actually see the ZR1 bow.
That’s Car and Driver’s take. Not ours. We have our own crystal ball, and it tells us that we won’t see any new Corvette variants until the fall of 2017. Possibly at an auto show that’s to be determined.
