Well that 2018 Corvette ZR1 that we spotted on the cargo jet to Europe last week never did materialize at Le Mans, but it does look like it has made its return to the Nurburgring.
[PICS] New 2018 Corvette Ceramic Matrix Gray Compared to Arctic White, Blade Silver and Sterling Blue
The good folks at the world’s largest Corvette dealer receive new truckloads of Corvettes all the time. But this week Kerbeck Corvette just received their first transports loaded with 2018 Corvettes! The shipment included a 2018 Corvette Grand Sport with the new Ceramic Matrix Gray exterior, the newest color which made its debut in April at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash event. Ceramic Matrix Gray is also the featured color of the 2018 Carbon 65 Editions.
Where would Corvette be today without the efforts of its legendary chief engineer / cheerleader Zora Arkus-Duntov?
Believe it or not, if Porsche officials had had their way in the mid-1950s, we might have a definitive answer to that speculation.
Happy Monday folks. Hope everyone is doing better than my main desktop computer which is now on a lift at my local Best Buy Garage. Unfortunately, our weekly Midyear Monday photo gallery will be a just a tad smaller than usual but we still have 32 great photos of the 1963-1967 Corvettes this week.
Want to see your Corvette featured on a future Midyear Monday gallery? Email a photo or two to [email protected] and we’ll add it to our archive.
This Corvette reminds me of the old Johnny Cash song, “One Piece at a Time,” where he assembles a car from pieces he has brought home working at the assembly plant over a period of years.
Johnny Burke’s car started out life as a 1973 model, but today you could call it anything from a 1963 to a 2015 since he’s borrowed several touches from other years that have resulted in one cool C3 restomod.
Long before there was the off-white (officially known as Ceramic Matrix Gray) Carbon 65 Corvette coming for 2018, there was the all-white 35th Anniversary Edition in 1988.
We’ve seen a lot of these cars over the years (well, as many as you can see when there were just 2,050 ever made) and have always admired the white leather seats.
