Despite Chevrolet’s best attempts to keep the lid on the 2015 Corvette Z06 until the official reveal on Monday morning at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, the cat is now out of the bag after a Jalopnik reader goes sleuthing for the images and finds them courtesy of a Google image search on another automotive news site.
With the news that Chevrolet will be introducing the 2015 Corvette Z06 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month, speculation about the car’s details have ramped up from whispers to a dull roar. Leading the rumor mill over the last two days is this photoshop of a C7 Corvette Z06 which was reportedly done by a Corvette Forum member, as well as a leaked photo allegedly showing the performance car’s new supercharged engine dubbed the LT4.
New spy photos published today by Autoweek appears to reveal many new details regarding the highly anticipated 2015 Corvette Z07. The Corvette in the photos are well covered in camouflaged fabric, but we were still able to catch a glimpse of the how the new front end might look as well as the rear brake cooling ducts. Plus, this Corvette has some really big brakes!
Autoblog has a gallery of spy photos from the guys at KGP Photography that appear to show a camouflaged Corvette Z07 Convertible prototype undergoing testing at an unnamed facility. The Corvette is well covered with both the white/black swirls on the body and the blanket-covers that we remember well from the testing of the Corvette Stingray in 2012. However, there are some visual clues that do lead us to believe this is the high performance version of the C7 Corvette.
Great news for Indy 500 Corvette pace car fans. Autoweek is claiming that the 2014 Corvette Stingray will be the pace car for the Greatest Spectacle in Racing and they say they have the spy photos to prove it. The photos show a specially-equipped Laguna Blue 2014 Corvette Stingray with safety lights testing at the Milford Proving Grounds.
We received an email from a reader who spotted the Torch Red 2014 Corvette Stingray in Phoenix, Arizona. Seems the majority of the recent sightings have been in that surrounding area.
On Sunday evening, Corvette Forum member “Blue Ox” promised a Christmas gift for those that follow the C7 threads and then proceeded to post a bevy of images that appear to come from a service manual or user’s guide.
Last week a similar image of the C7′s nose was leaked.
Included in the image dump is a definitive view of the C7 Corvette’s rear end, an interior drawing showing the drivers cockpit and there is an actual gauge photo too. But that’s not all as some specific features of the C7 have been detailed as well.
