Chevy Teases Detroit-Bound C7 Corvette

After letting rumors pile up for years, Chevy has provided a few basic details on the next-generation Corvette. The car will debut at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in January.

With the official debut still three months away, Chevy hasn't provided any real details that folks that follow such things want to know. It has, however, revealed the new Crossed Flags logo that will appear on the seventh-generation Corvette's hood.

"The all-new, seventh-generation Corvette deserved an all-new emblem," said Ed Welburn, GM vice president of global design. "The new Crossed Flags 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."

Chevy said that the new logo is "more technical, more angular and more swept appearance – in proportion that symbolizes the new car."

We don't know too much about what the "comprehensive redesign" entails, but we do know that it shares very little with the current Corvette.

Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer, explained: "With the new Corvette, we set out to build a world-challenging sports car with design, refinement, efficiency and driver engagement that is second to none. The result is a truly all-new Corvette. There are only two carryover parts from the C6 used in the C7 – the cabin air filter and the rear latch for the removable roof panel."

Chevy will unveil the 2014 Corvette on Sunday, January 13. It will release more information about the sports car in the coming weeks via the new website www.one13thirteen.com. The site has a series of videos set to unlock on several dates leading up to the Detroit show. The first will be available on November 15.

The teaser below shows a few fuzzy glimpses of the Corvette along with some rolling track.
