Rumor says vehicle was being use for steering system tests. If there was a fault in the steering it very well could have put the car off the road. It also happened last week.

General Motors held a teleconference on Tuesday with Chevrolet dealers and their sales personnel to talk about the 2014 Corvette Stingray. Our sources tell us that dealership allocation will not be finalized until the second quarter of 2013, however, those dealers that are getting the Stingray are predetermined based on the volume of Corvette sales in 2012.

GM did confirm that the volume Corvette dealerships will receive priority in receiving the initial allocations. In fact, the first nine months of production will be sent to those priority dealerships and then after that period, every dealership can get at least one Stingray.

GM is telling dealerships that their Stingray allocation is based on sales in 2012 through August, and that they must have sold at least four Corvettes to obtain first priority for the first 9 months. Dealerships will also have to meet the Corvette sales and service training standards to that point as well.

It’s no secret that Corvette owners have been trending older with the average buyer now nearing 60 years old. The new cutting-edge exterior design and all the technology inside are designed to attract a younger buyer which GM indicated to their sales teams was someone in the mid-40′s. Many in this age segment went to imports like the Audi TT and Porsche 911. GM thinks its new Corvette is on that level and wants to get people inside for a test drive to change any preconceptions they had. So yes, GM is actively encouraging sales to allow for test drives of the new Stingray.

GM gave no answers on anticipated production volume for the 2014 model year, but our sources says they stressed that they are looking to surpass the C6′s best year of production. We looked that up and in 2007, a total of 40,561 Corvettes were built. Even during the C6′s rollout in 2005, a total of 37,372 base Corvettes and Convertibles were built. So besting that number would be a lofty goal indeed!

Representatives were asked about the Corvette Stingray Convertible but they would neither confirm nor deny that the new model was going to be revealed in Geneva.

Finally, our sources told us that the GM was stressing how the new 2014 Corvette Stingray will be the most customizable ever. We’ve already seen the Carbon Flash rear spoiler and the black rear view mirrors. But more would also be available through the Genuine Corvette Accessories catalog. GCA parts and accessories can be ordered through your Chevrolet dealer’s service department. Look for body-colored vents for a monochromatic look, sill plates, racing pedals and many other parts.

Someone edited my posts. I said the Vettes looks like trash. I don't know where that wolf pic came from.

SANTA ANA, CALIFORNIA March 14, 2013 – Callaway Cars released renderings today of the company’s design study for a C7 Corvette-based shooting brake concept. Callaway plans to manufacture the body package providing an openable hatch that would result in a unique style and increased interior space, positioning the Corvette in the elite class of two door shooting brakes.

Callaway’s AeroWagon body will be manufactured in their proprietary RTM process for structural carbon parts. The KRTM (Krämer Resin Transfer Molding) process produces load carrying carbon parts in one swift molding step.

Fitted to the Callaway version of the C7 Corvette, the Callaway AeroWagon is projected to be a 200+ mph automobile while still returning the highest mileage rating in the supercar segment.

Based on market reaction, Callaway plans to produce the conversions coincident with the release of production C7 Corvettes this Fall. The AeroWagon option is projected to be under $15,000 and available through Callaway Dealers nationwide.

It looks fantastic from the side but once you start to rotate it, the rear fender arch into the "C pillar" looks horribly unsorted and too short. I really dig it overall, though.

Saw a blue one in person at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway today. It looks so much better in person. It really does look Ferrari-ish and doesn't look like it has tacked on vents. The sharp lines look excellent and not over the top like they do it pics.

Honestly it looks better (minus the back end) in that video than any of the pictures we've seen so far, and aside from the fact it's a huge ****ing engine, I'm impressed with the car and it's tech, despite pushrods and inverted leaf spring still plaguing it :P. Back end is still fugly as anything, and holy hell since when does a vette weigh 3400 lbs? Seriously?

Other than that, not bad for the price. I'd love to know what it is without their suede and carbon or whatever else doesn't come with the performance package.

my oh my it sounds delicious in a muscle car kind of way. I have to give GM props on that dash board. It makes the car feel a bit special. Gimmicky or not, I do not care, it is something special a Vette owner can enjoy every time he starts the car. nice job.
