GM's latest announcement about the next-generation Corvette is all tell and no show. Chevy announced that the 2014 C7 Corvette will meet the press and the public on Jan. 13, 2013, at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Instead of a teaser photo, however, the automaker released the new car's badge.
The Crossed Flags logo — worn by the Corvette since its 1953 debut — gets a more angular look for 2014. "The flags are much more modern, more technical and more detailed than before — underscoring the comprehensive redesign of the entire car," Ed Welburn, GM vice president of global design, said in a statement.
Details are slim about the seventh-generation Corvette, but GM did say that it'll be almost entirely new. "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," Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer, said in a statement.
Chevrolet said it'll continue to rollout 2014 Corvette details on its Facebook page and through Twitter, @Chevrolet (#Corvette). Check back with us as we learn more.
