Meanwhile, CorvetteBlogger.com has posted a cover photo and details of the much-anticipated 'Vette from what it says is a leaked copy of the December issue of Car and Driver magazine. The purported cover image and story describe a 750-horsepower, supercharged 6.2-liter brute putting out 680 pounds-feet of torque and capable of zero-to-60 mph in less than 3 seconds, with a 210-mph top speed. Cars.com could not verify its authenticity.

The much-anticipated ZR1 version of the C7 Corvette would be a 2019 model. The Corvette plant in Bowling Green, Ky., shut down this summer for upgrades and is just reopening to build an abbreviated 2018 model year. The 2019 model-year production then will begin in late January, plant officials told the Bowling Green Daily News.
