Nothing worse than putting the company car into a snowbank on a cold
winter’s fall day.
We are trying to decide if this 2020 Corvette Stingray is equipped with the Z51 package, which as you know, is outfitted with the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S summer tires and not the all-season Michelin Pilot Sport All-Season 4’s that come standard on all non-Z51 Corvettes. It looks like there is a bit of the wing spoiler showing through the snow that’s piled on the rear deck so most likely you can chalk this one up having the wrong tires for the road conditions.
The Black 2020 Corvette Stingray was apparently in the Detroit area when it was spied on the side of the road. A quick video was posted on Facebook by Corey Vela:
Not being up on the current weather conditions in Detroit, we wonder if this driver just happened to get caught out in the snow or if they were actually doing testing on a day like this. We do remember pics like this of the C8 prototypes driving in the snow so it wouldn’t surprise us. We do know that the test cars will be wearing the all-season Michelin tires once winter officially arrives just in case this isn’t enough of a warning.
