A little over five years ago we shared a photo of actor Ian Ziering in a black C7 Corvette Stingray Convertible. The star of Sharknado and Beverly Hills 90210 is a Corvette enthusiast in “real life” and recently was caught giving this Elkhart Lake Blue 2020 Corvette his seal of approval.
If you’re not familiar with the vanity plate, the “I8A 4RE” license plate graced the back of a C4 Corvette on “90210”. It was Ian’s idea that his character Steve Sanders drove a Corvette in the mid-90s teenage drama.
In this case, we don’t believe Ian is officially a C8 Corvette owner. In this post on Twitter, Ian says he had the car for a week, and as the license plate photo from above was shared to Instagram by Chevrolet’s Shad Balch, we think this might be a loaner to give VIP buyers a chance to try it before they buy it.
Also in his tweet, Ian compares to the 2020 Corvette to exotics like Lamborghini and Ferrari and we’d bet a chainsaw that a mid-engine Corvette is as much a certainty for the actor as appearing in another installment in the Sharnado movie franchise.
Drove this bad boy for the week. With this C8 Corvette, Chevrolet has firmly seated themselves at the table with Lamborghinis and Ferraris. This car is beyond! @chevrolet@Corvette #C8Corvette#ChevroletCorvette#midengineCorvette pic.twitter.com/I4tuI9tdHm— Ian Ziering (@IanZiering) September 3, 2020
