Gas Guzzler Tax for 2018 Corvette ZR1 Spotted in GM Order System

Gas Guzzler Tax for 2018 Corvette ZR1 Spotted in GM Order System


Earlier this morning, we showed how GM has named the new Carbon 65 blue caliper color as “ZR1 Blue” in the dealer’s order system, and we speculated that the blue calipers are a harbinger for the 2018 Corvette ZR1.

Our friend Rick Conti saw that data earlier and posted the info on his website. We don’t have access to the GM’s order system, but luckily some others heard about this and after more investigation, the RPO R8E “Gas guzzler Tax, ZR1” was also spotted in the order system.

Are the Carbon 65’s Blue Calipers a Sign that the 2018 Corvette ZR1 is Coming?

We’ve all see the spy photos of the 2018 corvette ZR1 but it’s still remarkable that people ask me if I think its really coming. Like the pictures of the car aren’t proof enough. But longtime Corvette watchers are seeing signs that the “King Of the Hill Corvette may be close to making its return.

It’s all about the details.

A Corvette is more than just a car to many enthusiasts.

The owner of a white 1977 Corvette found out the hard way about the dangers of leaving the keys inside the vehicle when you’re not around.

A surveillance camera captured the car minutes before it was stolen, as well as the prime suspect in the theft who is wearing a No. 21 or No. 27 jersey, but if someone can identify the man from that grainy photo, it would appear to be a miracle.

Chevrolet continues in the tradition of providing the best value for the performance with the Corvette and now we have the latest offerings for the 2018 model year. Each year the Corvette Team provides more ways to customize America’s favorite sports car so owners can set up their rides exactly how they want and the latest info continues that tradition.

Along with providing the information about the 2018 Corvettes in the official Corvette Order Guide, preliminary pricing for each of the models was also announced.

I’m not sure the last time that model pricing was announced before the bash, although the 2014 Corvette’s MSRP was announced the day of the Bash back in 2013. But looking through yesterday’s announcement of the 2018 Corvette Carbon 65 Edition was a fact sheet with the MSRP for each of the three models for 2018: Stingray, Grand Sport and Z06. The good news? Pricing is being increased by just $50 for each model.
