[PICS] Vice President Joe Biden Checks Out the Corvettes at NAIAS 2017


Vice President Joe Biden was in Detroit today and made his second visit to the North American International Auto Show as VP. One of the stops on the tour was to check out the 2017 Corvettes on display.

Joining Biden on the walk-through at Chevrolet was GM’s Executive Vice President Mark Reuss and Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter.

In the picture below, we’d like to think that Biden is asking when he’ll be able to see the new 2018 Corvette ZR1 as Tadge answers that they don’t discuss future products.

Black Rose Metallic continues to impress us as an exterior color for the Corvette. Very unique and not often seen, we don’t expect this color to be around much longer as Chevrolet likes to refresh the non-traditional colors often. No we haven’t heard anything specific about this color, but you know the drill.

When it comes to significant Corvettes to be sold auctions we tend to focus on L88, Z06’s, ZR1’s, racecars, and other rare birds. This time you’ve got a chance to score something much rarer as Mecum will be offering a 1-of-43 made 1957 airbox fuelie at their monster Kissimmee auction next week in Florida.

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.

With the Corvette Team skipping the 2017 North American International Auto Show for the public debut of the 2018 Corvette ZR1, speculation is high on both where and when they will decide to make the latest C7 public.

We know the car is getting closer to reality based on the various on-going testing we’ve seen with the “big wing” C7. The 2018 Corvette ZR1 was recently spied without its covers and just last week it was spotted testing in the snow as these cold winter spy shots show.
