Feast your eyes on the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (live photography)
For months now, the automotive world has been grasping at anything pertaining to the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette from spy shots to service manual images to tooling videos to the recent GM teaser videos but tonight the wait is over – the C7 is here. Tonight at an invite-only event in Detroit, General Motors introduced the seventh generation of the Corvette and while all of the leaked images gave us a pretty good idea of what to expect but that doesn’t make the introduction of the progressive new Corvette any less exciting – or impressive. Along with the new engine, the fully redesigned exterior and the refined, high end interior comes the return of the Stingray name that so many associate with the great Corvettes of the 1960s.
“Stingray is one of the hallowed names in automotive history,” said Ed Welburn, GM vice president of global design. “We knew we couldn’t use the Stingray name unless the new car truly lived up to the legacy. The result is a new Corvette Stingray that breaks from tradition, while remaining instantly recognizable as a Corvette the world over.”
