Tomorrow we’ll show you the C7 Corvette

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The C7 Corvette — the seventh generation of General Motors' iconic super car — is set to be unveiled 14 months from now at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. Doesn't that seem like a totally unacceptable timeframe? We think so.

So, instead of waiting, we're just going to show you the 2014 Corvette a bit early — like, say, tomorrow.

This week, unbeknown to General Motors, we saw the next-generation Corvette completely uncovered. That's right — no camouflage, no car cover, no anything to keep us from seeing every crease, every line, and every vent — and tomorrow at noon we're going to show you exactly what it looks like. We think you'll find it's nothing like what's been speculated by the buff books and blogs so far.

You may even like it.

If YOU had pics of the C7 would you WAIT to publish them. Meanwhile announcing that you have them, which would give GM's lawyers plenty of time to block the release. I'm just saying....

On the other hand, I would also love to see it

We all can't wait right??

All I can say is capture that photo if you see it because GM lawyers will be slaming Jalopnik faster than you can say it once those photos go up...

I always dig the release of new corvette models..

this new c7 is supposed to be a real beauty too.

I don't really care about the interior with the exception of better bolstering of the seats..but the exterior is really supposed to put every iteration before on the wagon..

and thats from a pretty good source..

1st Gear: See The 2014 Corvette At Noon
Like we told you late last night, we secretly saw the C7 Corvette first-hand this weekend. You're going to want to be here at noon when we show you the images we've commissioned. They're as close as you're going to get to the real thing until it's officially unveiled in 14 months.

The back end is a bit too "Transformers" for me, but overall it ain't too shabby.

supposedly this is the full bore ZR1 trim photo drawings..



and again the appropriate link http://jalopnik.com/5859302/2014-corvette-first-photos/gallery/1


Looks nice but not exactly a full release..

I wouldn't worry about a law suit from GM..they probably are laughing their @sses off.

Looks way too much like a Camaro for me.

Not a big fan either but we have to remember its just a rendering..

The real world vehicle is from what I've heard is quite striking..

Yes, I'd imagine that this rendering will still be nothing like the production car.

Not a fan of the taillights. Otherwise looks good.

I have complete confidence in those who I've spoken to who have seen the C7 and they tell me its stunningly beautiful.

Jalapy nick did an disservice to the corvette with such a release ....

It'll give insights but its missing so much as a rendition that the vehicle looses its true star appeal as a world class sports car..

Have trust in Ed Welburn and his team of designers...

this will be a product that we are all proud of...

Some will like it...some won't but I can assure you it will be much more impressive than these sketches..

BTW..guys..I do a radio show webcast type show that you can catch on itunes or wheelspin.tv

If you get a chance play it in the backround while your surfing the net on corvette sites such as this..

Its a good show ...I would appreciate your support...I'm doing it just for fun and if you have an itunes account..give me a five star rating if you could..

The podcast is crossedflags.com and I'm your host!!! LOL It should get more corvette oriented as more and more corvette information leaks out..

till then its a broad based webcast and keep in mind its really just an amatuer such as myself and my cohosts having fun.... You might find it enjoyable as a backround to the computer forums you visit such as this..

I have fun doing it..

JB
