The official reveal of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette happens this Sunday evening at 7:00 p.m., ahead of the Detroit Auto Show’s opening. In it’s fourth (and presumably, final) C7 Corvette teaser, Chevrolet shows a prototype going through the assembly line (which is a necessary step in validating each step of the assembly process).
While we don’t get to see anything close to the completed car, we do get a chance to see the fiberglass body shell and the aluminum chassis in the video. While we’re as curious as you are about the shape of the next Corvette, we really can’t wait for a chance to climb behind the wheel and drive it.
As Jonathan Andrews, body shop launch engineer explains, “every gram has to earn its way onto the car.” That a pretty good indication that all Corvettes, including the base model, will serve up noticeably better performance and handling than their current C6 equivalents. Whether that will sit well with those who buy Corvettes for image remains to be seen, but those of us with a passion for driving will surely appreciate the improvements.
For the latest on the 2014 Corvette, bookmark Chevy’s One13Thirteen webpage. We’re fairly certain the site will stream video of the C7’s reveal on Sunday evening, which promises to be far more entertaining than 60 Minutes.
