“Never seen rain” is a common saying among Corvette “polishers”. But just because its raining, that doesn’t mean that testing comes to a halt with the new 2014 Corvette Stingray. We picked up this gem of a pic on twitter from LaFontaine Chevrolet in Dexter, MI showing a Laguna Blue Corvette Stingray driving in the wet.
Over the last week, a few more videos showing the 2014 Corvette Stingrays testing on public roads have surfaced on YouTube. We’ve already posted a couple of these to our Facebook page but wanted to share them with our regular blog readers as well. Check out these videos and keep your cell phones and cameras handy because you’ll never now when you might encounter the new Corvette Stingray!

Gavin Sets the Pace in GTE Pro in No. 74 Corvette C6.R; Taylor Walks Away from Encounter with Tire Wall in No. 73 Corvette C6.R
LE MANS, France, June 3, 2012 – Corvette Racing ended the Le Mans Test Day first and fourth in the GTE Pro category. Oliver Gavin ran the quickest lap in the two four-hour sessions at 3:58.971 in the No. 74 Compuware Corvette C6.R, more than half a second quicker than the car’s qualifying pace last year. The No. 73 Compuware Corvette C6.R covered the 8.5-mile circuit in 4:00.062, the fourth fastest time in the production-based class, before being sidelined by an encounter with a tire wall.
With the introduction of the C7 Corvette coming next year, we’re assuming that the engineering members of the Corvette Team are hard at work with shaking down the new car in a variety of environments. Proving this are these spy photos from our friends at both Jalopnik and Autoblog, who captured two cloaked C7 Corvette prototypes playing in the snow at an unknown location.
