Car and Driver Magazine Stokes the C7 Fervor…
(Editor’s note: Before I get started, I want to point out that I personally have NO inside information or connections. What follows is educated speculation on my part.)
We invite you to leave your thoughts and opinionson this latest iteration at the bottom of this post.
The April 2011 issue of Car and Driver magazine arrived in my mailbox yesterday and my immediate response was “WOW!” The cover story is, “25 Cars Worth Waiting For!” and splashed in the front of the grouping of three red hot cars is, what is most likely a computer generated images of the 2013 Corvette.

But in retrospect, I can NOT look back at any new generation Corvette and say, “bad job.” I’m very confident that the designers and stylists that are now working on the C7 will get it right and successfully capture the eseance of that which is “Corvette”.

The blogosphere and webosphere have been blah blahhing quite a bit in the last few months as to just what changes inside and out may occur with the upcoming and greatly anticipated C7 Corvette. If you read the other post here on Corvette Report on the Corvette in Peril, you know the economy will most likely slow down the production of this next generation. That aside, Corvette lovers dream on. Here are a few links to get the conversation going and a few well thought out responses to how things may shake out/ shape up. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
