We’ve been hearing rumors about this car for months, but now we have a date for when the reveal event is actually happening. According to the official website, this new Corvette is the “sum of each generation before it." The Bowtie isn’t giving us much here, but it’s more than enough to get our hearts racing and minds wandering as we consider the possibilities. You can sign up for updates here.
Even better, Chevrolet recently unveiled a photo of the Corvette wrapped in camouflage. Admittedly, you can’t see a lot, but the lines under all that camo lead us to believe this is going to be something very special and unique. The Next Generation Corvette also made an appearance on New York City’s 7th Avenue near Times Square this week -- in camouflage of course.
This will be the eighth-generation Corvette, carrying on a lineage that began when the first generation was introduced as a 1953 model year. That car was originally designed as a show car for the 1953 Motorama display at the New York Auto Show. However, it generated enough interest to go into production.
The seventh-generation Corvette was revealed in January 2013 and was the first to bring back the Stingray nameplate since 1968.
We’ll have much more information as soon as it's available. Be sure to keep watching The BLOCK and @theblockdotcom on Instagram for continuing coverage of Chevrolet Performance and this tantalizing Corvette.
