Great news for Indy 500 Corvette pace car fans. Autoweek is claiming that the 2014 Corvette Stingray will be the pace car for the Greatest Spectacle in Racing and they say they have the spy photos to prove it. The photos show a specially-equipped Laguna Blue 2014 Corvette Stingray with safety lights testing at the Milford Proving Grounds.
Last Friday at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash Event, Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter and Product Manager Harlan Charles delivered their 2014 Corvette Stingray seminar to a capacity crowd. With so much information coming out about the new Corvette, the seminar lasted nearly two full hours!
Like previous years, the seminar also gave us the highlights and some final numbers on the current model year (2013) before delving into the new Stingray content. And because pricing for the Stingray was announced just an hour before the event started, we get to hear the Corvette Team’s first official comments on the manufacturers suggested retail pricing of $51,995 for the 1LT Coupe and $56,995 for the 1LT Convertible.
The LT nameplate has a long and storied performance history for Corvette and General Motors.
Looks like a new chapter could well be added by the seventh generation of the ‘Vette.
At the conclusion of the National Corvette Museum’s annual Bash event, the Lagnua Blue Corvette Stingray Coupe and the Night Race Blue Convertible were taken outside and loaded onto an auto transporter for destinations unknown.

The Corvette Museum’s Annual Bash was in full swing on Friday and the biggest crowds were always around the 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe and Convertible on display in the conference room.
But that didn’t mean there weren’t any other new Stingrays in the vicinity. This is Vette City after all. Hunting down the new model cars at the factory or around town is an annual pastime but this year it was made much easier as we got directions to where we could find them from Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter.
Since the new Corvette Stingray was revealed on 1.13.13, one major question waiting to be answered was how much will the new C7 cost. Today, we are very happy to reveal that the 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe will have a suggested retail starting price of $51,995 and the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible will start at $56,995. Both prices include a $995 destination fee.
