2014 Chevrolet Corvette

The exclusive images you see here, derived from hours spent secretly poring over the sheetmetal of two seventh-generation Corvettes, show the next step in the supercar's iconic evolution. These aren't photos, but this is absolutely the next-generation Chevy Corvette in ZR1 trim. GM so doesn't want you to see these.

Love it or hate it, the Chevrolet Corvette is an American icon. For most of its 60 years, the 'Vette's shown that a commodity-focused U.S. automaker can confound expectations and compete with the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini. The seventh-generation Corvette — or C7 Corvette — as fan-boys and GM insiders call it — is designed to further confound those expectations.

These renderings were derived from hours this weekend I (and our designer) spent in secret, poring over the completely uncamouflaged "sheetmetal" of two versions of the next-gen Corvette. With limited time, we decided to, rather than show you the first one, a base level Corvette, we focused our rendering efforts instead on the high-performance ZR1 trim level.

None of our sources were willing to go on the record or allow me to run their name for fear they might lose their jobs. That's also why I'm showing renderings rather than actual photos — I don't care if it might cast doubt on the veracity of the styling — but I didn't want anyone losing their job over this.

That said, we showed these images to three different sources at General Motors — and all three confirmed that the images you see here accurately portray the ZR1 trim level for the seventh-generation Corvette. A fourth source — a non-GM employee — confirmed that the vehicle we show here is one of two Initial Vehicle Engineering Release (IVER) vehicles that's been making the rounds at the Milford Proving Grounds.

At first glance, you think this is nothing more than an evolutionary change to America's supercar. But give it a second for that initial enormously deceiving glance to dissipate into a double-take. The changes — like the very Camaro-esque rear taillights, the over-exaggerated side vents, and a new window in the rear quarter — will be absolutely polarizing to any Corvette fan-boy. And other items — like a split-rear window, a la the Corvette Stingray, won't make it into production.

Reminds me slightly of the Lotus front :/ Idk. But I think it looks pretty damn cool! Not much different from the rest of them I guess.

This reminds me NOGAF: Next week I get to drive a brand new Z06 I think its a 2011 I am guessing. But it's a manual So I will be learning how to drive a manual with it. Sorry I am kind of excited. NOGAF.

I love the corvettes, this is just a render. Hopefully they fix up the tails lights, they look weird to me. Other tha that, I like it it's sexiness in my eyes?

The aero rear hatch look is nasty. I doubt all that will make it into production.

I like how they say Corvette fanbois call it...the C7. That is just what it is.

I ain't taking anything seriously until a real photograph of a production model appears.

Jalopnik generated a bit of hype with this stunt, and then they show us a goddamned rendering? Fail.

My C6 Z06 was easier to drive than my either of my Evos, clutch pedal isn't very heavy.

Hopefully they don't put another fucking Cobalt steering wheel in this thing and upgrade the damn seats. Hell, just throw the Recaro's that the CTS-Vs can get in there.

Look at this shot here. You can see that the tail lights aren't round anymore, just like in the artist's rendering from before.

yeah, you can sorta see that...wonder how the die-hard 'vette fans are going to take that news...they didn't like it when GM 'squared out' the tail lights in the late '80's-early '90's.

They always do extreme cold-weather testing to make sure those bad-boys still work when you take them to Canada. It looks like those photos were taken on my drive home from work today.

No big deal, but it's cool to see how the bumper covers are made:

Hmm... it looks familiar for some reason.

The video showed up on CorvetteOnline.com labeled as "How Corvette C6 Bumpers Are Made." Commenters immediately realized that this is no C6 bumper, but rather the unrevealed C7.

You may remember that we revealed the whole C7 Corvette. Many critics saw the GT-R/Camaro mashup panels and prayed we got it all wrong. Some still do despite ample evidence to the contrary.

This video, likely to be taken down in no time, shows again how right we were.

A spokesperson for GM would neither confirm nor deny these were the C7 Corvette.

"As we're building the prototype cars for the next generation Corvette we are working with suppliers… to begin the process of tooling for the early prototype cars before they go into production," said the spokesperson.

I am sure it is an extreme way to test the stability control. Go drive a ZR1 in the rain. It is a big pussy cat. I would rather have a car that was a little over developed than under.

I read a LONG time ago when they came out with the ls everyone in that department from engineering to receptionist had an ls swaps in their pick ups, C4s and fbodys to shake all the bugs out. Stuff like that vs other companys running an engine on a dyno to simulate 24 hours around "the ring" is what separates real world from fantasy. Yes I am a fAnbOi

I'm really not liking any of the progressive spy shots or renderings; very disappointing. The C5 was such a great car aesthetically (perfect, no, but very good); in my opinion the C6 was a plasticky step in the wrong direction and the C7 seems to be continuing down that same path.

I understand that the corvette has to look 'American' and differentiate from the other super car styling queues of the moment, but that doesn't mean that it has to look ugly. The corvette has always been about innovation and this doens't look aesthetically innovative to me. It really looks more like Lingenfelter hired a bunch of rednecks to design a body kit for a c6 than a full 'from scratch' GM design studio project.

From looking at the conceptual models- I see too many characteristics from other cars, the front looks very similar to a Ferrari 599, and the back-half (other than the signature round tail lights) appears to have the same body features to the Nissan GT-R.

I can't help but think of an Rx8 when I see the quarters from the side. The C3 had some pretty long quarters that extended well past the glass and ofcoarse the mid year coupes had a dome, bubble or boatail looking rear. I am hoping the rear is going to look MUCH better and hark back to the old more so when they pull off the camo and less Rx8 and BMW Z4ish.

2014 Chevy Corvette's high-tech V8 revealed | Fox News

So at least we know now that the new Vette will still have a 6.2 for its base engine. Everywhere I have read they make a big deal of this being the base engine so I would think that means no 5.5l or joking V6 option.

It is a sorta boost friendly, at least for a n/a DI engine, 11.5:1 compression also.

Now they just need to send the designer of the rear of the car to the same place they banished those bastards that wanted to put a v6 in it.

That's pathetic output for all the technology they have into it. 6.2 liters should produce no less then 500 based on the displacement achievements of other companies including GM itself, I expected this out of the 5.5. 4.0 seconds to 60 is a far cry from 3.7 contrary to what they think too.

That's it for hate though. I'm going to bet that it's even more watered down than their standard small block stuff in stock form, I am hella excited to see what happens when people get to start modding it. Even better mileage and insane NA power when the user can get rid of some of the emissions garbage and tune it. Hopefully they'll stick to their quality standards in terms of long block hardware is concerned.

looks like Jalponik was right on the money The front end looks really good, but something about the profile bothers me. The bulbous rear fenders, or the rear window that flies in the face of every Corvette design going back 30 years. I don't know what it is that bugs me, I just can't put my finger on it. But then, you get to that rear end... fucking yikes. That rear is hideous.

Note that the B&W images are the official GM docs; all colorized images are renders done by people on various forums, or magazine staffers.

The big rear fenders seem right on with the old stingrays. If the rear window curved more to meet the side windows at a rubber seal to make it look like one big piece or if the rear glass was just one big piece I think it would look more like the older stingrays.

The rear with tail lights and all for some reason reminds me of when they paint the back end black on the C5r and C6r. It is just such a contrast that shows off the flatness of the C5 rear and the invertedness of the C6. I like the C7 rear and want to see it in black on a white or yellow car.

If they would smooth out the plant shelfs along the sides and keep away from the camaro taillights it would look nicer in my opinion

the Camaro taillights and the messy bottom half on the rear are what look like garbage to me. As for the rear fenders, I don't mean the shape as much as the sheer bulk; like the CTS coupe, the amount of sheetmetal between the wheel well and the window line just doesn't look appealing to me.

Finally unveiled and looks pretty much what the leaks renders looked like. Overall I like it a lot more than any other "modern" Corvette, but it looks a little busy with so many vents.

I don't like it, I prefer the C6 more. I give it kudos for being "original" though, as i can't say it looks more like any one car, just that different parts and pieces remind me of other sport/exotic cars. I certainly wouldn't call it a stingray though.

I'm a little unsure on how I feel about the interior, though there seems to be multiple options available. I want to like it, but something keeps me from liking it.

I like it MUCH more now that I can see an "in the flesh" vehicle rather than the illustrations. It's busy as hell though, no doubt about that. The rear is going to have to grow on me though.

The only striking similarity between the viper and the vette is those headlights, which I must say the vette's looks much better, less blank space and a more polished look. The overall shape of the car is similar, but that's about it.

I really never liked the looks of the C6, and so far don't have much love for the C7 either, although when I squint and ignore all the vulgar grills and obnoxious body appendages GM slapped onto this thing, I love the lines.

I'll reserve final judgement for when I see one in person.

The interior looks junky again. Glad they didn't stray from their old formula of embarrassingly spartan Detroit interior design.

That viper/vette comparison image has been plastered all over and I totally agree that the similarities of the front profile are borderline shameful. Not sure who copied who, but talk about lazy. It's almost as if the vette design studio sculpted the car and then was like "oh shit, this looks just like the viper! Quick, lets slap some grills, obnoxious vents, and these chin things on here to distract people from the fact we copied the shit out of this thing!"

Hey look, the C7 looks like the C6. The C6 looks like the C5. The C5 looks like the C4. See where I'm going with this?

I know concepts are always way more radical than the finished products for the Vette hasn't seen any REAL change in forever. I hate the latest Camaro but at least it was a great modern rendition of a legend. This is to say it's different but its definitly a Camaro. I wish GM would buck it's own trend with the Corvette, actually make it nice, do something new with the lines rather than sketching in some vents and sharpening the bevels in the fenders of the same clay block they've had on on the pedestal for that last 20 years.

I'm sure the C7 will keep most Corvette purists happy though and I imagine that was their design goal.

After so many redesigns and new designs of exotics, you're bound to get similarities in all of them.

you're on crack if you think there is just a "few similarities". I dig it, but lets be real. Saying "there is nothing left to design" is a lazy excuse--and, completely false.

Except for the c4. That's got square tails. My uncle has the 95 that has them and it will also have the set of 20x14 weld five spoke wheels that I told you about .
