The 2018 Corvette ZR1 Convertible is an elusive animal that, by our count, has been spotted in the wild just twice. CorvetteBlogger was first to show photos of the Convertible ZR1 in October 2016 thanks to an Ohio resident (and 2017 Grand Sport owner) David Wesel who captured the droptop ZR1 with a group of 2018 ZR1 Coupes. The second sighting was the same week when a twitter video showing that convoy of Corvette prototypes heading down the highway.

Our April Fools Day website makeover is dedicated to Myron Scott, an assistant director in Chevrolet’s public relations department when the the two-door fiberglass sports car we know today as the the Corvette was being developed. In 1953, a special committee was formed to find a name for the new Chevrolet sports car. The company wanted a name that began with the letter “C” and a review of over 300 names began.
While at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, Corvette Racing’s Doug Fehan talked about a cause that he was supporting that helps disabled veterans and animal rescues. Doug has always been there for the fans so I wanted to pass this info along.
