As we get closer to #one13thirteen and the unveiling of the all-new Corvette, we are getting reports from readers who are saying they have seen the camouflaged C7 Corvette show up in the most unlikely of places – on Sony PlayStation’s Gran Turismo 5. Could this mean that players of the Sony franchise game will soon be driving the 2014 Corvette?
Our friends at Jalopnik have really proved themselves to be the go-to website when it comes to breaking news on the next generation 2014 C7 Corvette. They created the first renders of the C7 last November and since then, all the spy photos and leaked supplier videos have pretty much confirmed that the new Corvette will look like Jalopnik said it would.
Last month, Trinity Animation used the Jalopnik renderings as well as other corroborating evidence to create an animated video of the C7 Corvette and now Jalopnik is sharing Trinity’s latest rendering of the C7 Corvette in stunning black. As the headline suggest, yes, this photo will make you fall in love with the 2014 Chevy Corvette.

The visual design cues are both modern and C3 retro without sacrificing function like the rear wheel brake cooling ducts. While the original color of this design was done in silver, someone did this great photoshop proving once again that all Corvettes should be red.
Here is an interesting unofficial rendering of the C7 Corvette by designer Andrei Avarvarii that takes some of the best features of the Transformer’s Stingray Concept and morphs them with the best features of the C6.
