[RUMOR] Is Velocity Yellow on the Way Out for the 2016 Corvette?

It’s about this time of year that we starting digging around to see what the Corvette team may have in store for Corvette enthusiasts for the 2016 Corvette Stingray and Z06. The Corvette Museum’s Bash Event is just over a month a way and that’s when we find out all the changes that will be coming on the next model year Corvette.

This year, the chatter seems to be at an all time low which means either that the team has clammed up or there just won’t be many significant changes to the C7s Corvettes as they enter the third year of production.

But that doesn’t mean changes aren’t afoot. Today’s Constraint Report has a key color that’s only available on 10% of the orders during the target production week of April 13th.

Last week in the days leading up to Corvette FunFest, we actually found ourselves back in Bowling Green at the Corvette Assembly Plant with a group of auto writers who were assembled by our friends at Mobil 1.

After touring the new Performance Build Center where the new LT4 supercharged engines are being assembled by hand, some of the group ventured out onto the floor of the plant and that is where this 2015 Corvette Z06 in Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic was spotted.

2014 Corvette Stingray Was Nearly Designed by Brazilians

All along, Chevy has made no secret that with the C7, it was aiming to entice a younger breed of buyer to supplement its already loyal, but graying customer base.

That meant Ed Welburn and his crew were willing to listen to all possibilities when it came time to design the seventh generation of the Corvette a few years back.

[PICS] Chevrolet Shows Off New Stinger Hood Treatment on the 2014 Corvette Stingray

During the NCM Bash, it was discussed that racing stripes would be an option available for the 2014 Corvette Stingray with the stripes coming in two flavors, full length and a stinger hood treatment.

We’ve already seen the full body length racing stripes on this Yellow/Silver C7 prototype back in February. And last weekend, Chevy showed off the “stinger” hood graphic on a Laguna Blue 2014 Stingray.

CSP Expands Plant and Adds 50 Jobs to Make Body Panels for the 2015 Corvette

The C7 Corvette continues to produce more good economic news every day, it seems.

For example, the company chosen to produce the exterior body panels and structural composite components for the highly anticipated new Corvette announced today it will expand its operations in Huntington, Indiana, creating up to 50 new jobs by 2015.

No More Cyber Gray or Crystal Red for 2011 Corvettes

Well, it looks like you can write off Cyber Gray, Crystal Red and Jetstream Blue as colors available for the 2011 Corvette. Jetstream Blue was already being phased out of this year’s remaining 2011 production, but the earthquake and resulting tsunami in Japan has affected several other colors that have automakers scrambling. And now we are hearing that customers with existing Corvette orders in the system are being asked to choose new colors.
