As you’ve probably heard by now, we didn’t get to see a new Corvette model introduced in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) this year. GM’s focus was clearly set on the booming crossover utility market as they rolled out the 2018 Chevy Traverse and Traverse High Country. Prior to showing the new SUV’s they also showed (again) the refreshed Equinox and the newly appointed North American Car of the year – the Chevy Bolt. The recently launched Volt, Cruze, Camaro ZL1, and Malibu also had prominent spots in the Chevrolet display as well.
Chevrolet’s flagship car wasn’t forgotten, though, as an Admiral Blue Grand Sport coupe and an Arctic White Stingray Convertible rested near the center of the sprawling Chevrolet setup. As we mentioned earlier, the layout this year was clearly focused on the more recently launched cars in GM’s portfolio. Even with that, the two Corvettes drew significant attention like only Corvettes can.
The Grand Sport was finished in charming Admiral Blue with the white body stripe and red fender hash marks. Inside was a black interior with Competition Sport seats and the 7 speed manual transmission. Nearby the Arctic White Stingray convertible sat with its red interior, GT seats, 8 speed automatic transmission, and various bits from the GM Performance Parts catalog.
So even though we don’t have any new Corvette news to report from NAIAS in Detroit this year we still get to look at some very cool Corvettes. Enjoy our gallery below and then get back to speculating when we’ll finally see the ZR1 revealed.
