The next generation Corvette has been a vehicle shrouded in mystery. Not helping are the multitude of publications (us included) that have unrelentingly speculated on just what we will see when the car launches in 2013. But with the latest revelation from Jalopnik, a lot of that speculation looks to be hushed for good. Somehow, the site got a hold of photos revealing the base C7 and C7 ZR1 totally nude, and rendered some photos for Corvette fans across the world to drool over.
As evident from the photos, there will not be a split rear window a la Corvette Stingray to be found here. Moving on, the new base ‘Vette will be revealed roughly a year from now at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show in January of 2013. But the rendered photos that Jalopnik drew up portray the ZR1-spec model, and are confirmed by several of their sources as incredibly accurate. And while the Jalops haven’t disclosed much about the C7’s interior, our own sources tell us that the car will feature a heavy digital influence, utilizing multiple LCD displays — kind of like the Cadillac CUE system. As for rumors of a high-revving twin-turbo V8 in development for the car, that remains to be confirmed by our sources.
