    Is this the new C7 Corvette?

    The highly anticipated Corvette C7 has had its fair share of leaks, but this one might be the most revealing one yet revealing that the next-generation of Chevrolet‘s great American sports car will indeed live up to its hype.

    Details accompanying some signature blurry-cam photos include that the C7 Corvette will have an optional carbon fiber roof, heated and cooled front seats, while the dash will sport a similar setup to what’s seen in the current Cadillac XTS with CUE. In addition, the new buttons seen throughout the interior look to be of high quality (similar to those found in the new Porsche 911), while no physical tachometer will be present in the next-generation Corvette, just a graphic in the middle LCD screen. All other gauges in the dash will be physical gauges.

    But most exciting is the leak that in 2015 an LT4 option will be made available, an upgrade from the current Camaro ZL1 powerplant with even more horsepower. Early speculation has Corvette enthusiasts believing that 2014 will see an LT1-powered C7 Vette with anywhere from 480 to 500 hp while the 2015 model will have an option LT4 sporting mid-500 horsepower.

    GM teases details of new Corvette, unveils logo

    Corvette enthusiasts, your wait is almost over.

    General Motors Co. said Thursday it will debut the seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette to the media and select fans of the sports car Jan. 13 in Detroit, ahead of the press days for the North American International Auto Show. The automaker also Thursday released the Corvette's new crossed flags logo, which buyers will see on the new 2014 model.

    "This all-new, seventh-generation Corvette deserved an all-new emblem," Ed Welburn, GM's vice president of global design, said in a statement. "The new crossed flag design reflects the character of the next Corvette. The flags are much more modern, more technical and more detailed than before — underscoring the comprehensive redesign of the entire car."

    The new Corvette will have just two parts from the sixth-generation Vette — a cabin air filter and the rear latch for the roof panel, which is removable. The current generation Corvette, or C6, was introduced as a 2005 model.

    "We set out to build a world-challenging sports car with design, refinement, efficiency and drive engagement that is second to none," Tadge Juechter, the Corvette's chief designer, said in a statement. "The result is a truly all-new Corvette."

    The automaker also is informing Chevy dealers Thursday of a six-month production gap between the current Corvette and the next generation Vette. Production of the current Corvette will end in February 2013 and customers will have until the end of October to place a guaranteed order for the sixth-generation, said Chevrolet spokesman Monte Doran.

    Orders will continue to be accepted until the end of December if there is capacity, Doran said.

    "For you the customer, it's going to be harder to find a dealer that has enough allocation to build your car (after October)," Doran said.

    GM said production of the 2014 Corvette will begin in the third quarter of 2013; the new Corvette will be on sale next year.

    Corvette sales are up 2.9 percent to 10,570 units through September compared to the same nine months in 2011.

    Chevrolet will introduce 13 all-new or majorly updated models during 2013. Last week, the brand confirmed that list would include the all-new 2014 Silverado pickup, Silverado HD pickup, Tahoe and Suburban SUVs, all-new 2014 Impala sedan, Spark battery-electric vehicle, 2013 Cruze diesel, 2013 Sonic RS, 2014 SS performance sedan, refreshed 2013 Traverse SUV and 2013 Equinox with a new V-6.

    The Corvette was not listed but Mike Albano, head of Chevrolet communications, hinted there would be a "few surprises."

    Chevrolet and GM officials will reveal the new crossed flag logo, which has adorned Corvettes since their 1953 introduction, at Road Atlanta, a motor sports facility in Georgia, on Thursday. There, the Chevrolet brand and Corvette Racing will accept several awards for the production-based American Le Mans Series GT championships.

    GM said more than 100 variations of the crossed flags were reviewed before the company made a final selection on the Vette's newest one. The logo, which has evolved over the years, has always included a checkered flag and another flag with the Chevrolet "bowtie" and a French fleur-de-lis.

    About 100 Corvette fans who want to attend the all-new Corvette reveal Jan. 13 in Detroit can buy tickets as part of a fundraiser for the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky. The reveal will be held at a venue outside of Cobo Center to give "the most passionate Corvette enthusiasts a chance to join in this," Doran said.

    Those interested in tickets should contact Roc Linkov at [email protected]

    The Corvette is built at GM's Bowling Green Assembly Plant, which runs production on one shift. A UAW official told The Detroit News last month that the automaker plans to add a second shift at the plant when it begins production of the new Corvette. GM has not announced any additional shifts for Bowling Green.

    2014 Corvette Engine Revealed, Turbo Rumor Debunked

    ore information on the upcoming C7 Corvette emerged early this morning from a press conference in Detroit set to discuss the car’s all-new LT1 engine.

    Chevrolet’s next Corvette will officially come with a 6.2-liter small block LT1 V8 making more than 450 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque with an expected 26 mpg on the highway. Those gains will come through cylinder deactivation along with direct injection and variable valve timing.

    Much to GM’s consternation, shutting half the old engine down to save fuel presented “insurmountable noise and vibration issues,” something that’s been addressed with the LT1, which is 99 percent new according to GM.

    What’s more, the new ‘Vette is said to boast a sub-four-second 0-60 sprint.

    Rumors of a twin-turbo V6-powered Corvette swirled around the internet earlier this week, but GM said this morning that feedback from Corvette customers dissuaded such a decision. Despite that, the brand didn’t deny that a force-fed six could eventually be on tap for future Corvettes.

    For now, GM’s next-generation small block V8 is actually lighter than the 4.4-liter V8 found in the BMW 5 Series and can adjust pressure on demand through its direct injection system.
