On Monday, Chevrolet did a surprise photo release by teasing an actual image of the 2023 Corvette Z06 one month ahead of its official reveal. Many have been speculating that perhaps Chevy wanted to give us an advance look at it so that we would have a chance to get used to the new look before the actual reveal. But there might have been another motive in play as well…they didn’t want to get “scooped” by someone as they were showing the cars in public ahead of the reveal.
A Corvette Forum member named SK360 says his buddy sent him these photos showing a Red Mist 2023 Corvette Z06 under an unnamed bridge in Pittsburgh, PA today. The C8 Corvette Z06 was first spied on an enclosed roll-back carrier and there is also a Porsche camera car on the scene as well. His buddy tells him that Chevy appears to be going all out by utilizing “Smoke machines, drones, Porsche camera car, the whole deal.”
Normally, Chevy is very cagey about moving around completed cars in public ahead of a reveal, and it could be the footage they are shooting today will be used during the official reveal presentation. That’s about the only reason why we would think it would be out in public prior to its planned debut on October 26th.
A few years ago, Chevrolet got caught moving a new 2005 Corvette from a trailer into a building ahead of the C6 reveal and someone was able to get a photo of it which was posted on the forums. With many of the same people still there on the Corvette Team, I bet they still haven’t forgotten that security breakdown.
If anyone is familiar with Pittsburgh, feel free to enlighten us on the possible location!
