Say Goodbye to the current Corvette!

From AutoNews:

Time is tickin’ on the current generation Corvette.

The C6 Corvette will be offered for the 2012 and 2013 model years, and that’s it. In fact, 2013 may be an abbreviated model year for the Corvette, according to a Chevrolet source.

C6 is General Motors’ designation for the current generation Corvette. The C6 has been on the market since the 2005 model year, and is long in the tooth.

While the source didn’t say, presumably a shortened model year would give the plant in Bowling Green, Ky., plenty of time to retool for the redesigned Corvette, coming for the 2014 model year. That car is referred to as the C7.

Interestingly, that means Corvette’s 60th anniversary will be marked with the current generation Vette, the 2013 model.

And if the past is any guide to the future — Corvette created special packages to mark previous anniversaries — I think we can expect a special edition 2013 Corvette to commemorate the event.

Here comes the 2012 Corvette!

From Auto News.com:

The introduction of high-performance tires and racing-style wheels for the Z06 and ZR1 models are the major changes to the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette, according to information posted at Corvette fan sites on the Internet.

Information is leaking out as Chevrolet is set to officially talk about the 2012 Corvette during the annual C5/C6 Bash fan event at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky., this weekend. Look for some official news on April 28.

Chevrolet has disclosed that there will be a Centennial Edition package for the 2012 Corvette, available on all trim levels of the car. That car will be available only with a black exterior. And it appears that is the only black on the Corvette color palate for 2012, according to ordering information posted by Montana Chevy dealer Ken Fitchner at www.corvetteforum.com.

Based on that information, it appears Chevrolet is making it easy for Corvette buyers to equip their Z06 and ZR1 Corvettes for use at track and club events.

Chevy considering four door Vette

Hold on to your seats on this one. Chevy is considering a 4 door Corvette! I hope and pray this never happens because they will ruin this car. This does not compare to the Porsche Panamera mainly because Chevy has plenty of 4 door vehicles and Porsche is Porsche.

From AutoGuide.com:

Back in 1980, General Motors toyed with the idea of producing a 4-door Corvette America. A prototype was built but the project was later dropped. As absurd as the concept sounds, GM now appears to be revisiting the idea and with Porsche seeing great success with its Panamera, the 4-door Vette might very well see reality three decades later.

According to a report by Wards Automotive, news of the rebirth of the Corvette America comes from none other than soon-to-retire GM Vice Chairman Bob Lutz, although its not clear that a 4-door Vette would actually wear the Corvette name. In fact, we’d think such a model would make more sense as a Cadillac, although considering the CTS-V, there might not be enough to differentiate the two.

Chevy Corvette to have two verisons?

Looks like some real serious debate has been underway at the General regarding the next gen Corvette. Should they keep it simple and affordable or offer a higher end model to compete with the best the world has to offer? Either way please don’t jack up the price of the Vette and make it unattainable for those who truly love this American sports car legend.

From the Detroit Free Press:

As sure as the sun rises and God makes little green apples, there will always be a Chevrolet Corvette.

Exactly what the next generation of America’s most revered sports car will bring is the topic of intense study within General Motors, however.

The Corvette is arguably the world’s best sports car. It has looks that would make Ferrari proud, performance to match Porsche, and a price that undercuts both by tens of thousands of dollars.

It also has countless fanatical admirers and a devoted owner base built up over decades.
