2014 Corvette?

New Corvette

It seems like every month new revelations concerning the next-generation ‘C7’ Chevrolet Corvette surface, mostly conjecture generated by fans on forums or other random sources but sometimes official spiel from within GM.

What we do know is that the C7 will now arrive two model years after the current 2012 Chevrolet Corvette, meaning it will be a 2014 model and should be available in the second half of the 2013 calendar year. We got that confirmation following GM’s announcement of a $131 million investment in the Corvette plant at Bowling Green, Kentucky, along with comments from GM’s North American boss Mark Reuss who stated that the car will be “completely different.

Another tidbit revealed from GM design boss Ed Welburn is that the new ‘Vette will get a split rear window along with some other vintage styling cues inspired by the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray and previewed on the 50th Anniversary Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Concept.
