Real Corvette?

Jalopnik.com says they got pics of the 2014 C7 Corvette. The real C7.
And J.com is going to show the world today, at noon EST time. [ now live ]

Only a few hours to guess if we will be IMpressed. Or DEpressed.

Will the younger flair fly? Or just look like a next-gen RX7? Will the styling move Corvette design forward and just be a visual nudge of the C6? Will C7 tech be advanced or evo, as the most recent rumors conservatively suggested?

One last chance to voice your C7 hopes, wishes, desires. Go!

You know if you go back and look at the 'Grand Sport C7' pics of the chassis under a GS mule body - those exhaust tips are the exact size & spacing. Clever inclusion on the 'renderings' or real design? Interesting...

Someone better check the record for most comments on a BBV post.
Because this one might reset the count.

Rumor is that GM Racing will debut Chevy's 2012 Grand-Am DPG3 [Daytona Prototype 3rd generation] at SEMA next week. And the tube-chassis rear-engine racecar will be branded CORVETTE!

FYI - It likely will NOT be painted like Jake.
A few GM'ers still struggle with such an overt Jake identity for Corvette, even as a race car.

* Chevy never let Pratt + Miller take this Corvette LMP beyond a wind tunnel model.
So much for competing for overall wins at Le Mans.

* And now, if true, the ALMS Corvette will have to fight headlines with a 'Silhouette Vette'.
So much for all that 'From Track to Street' / 'Racing improves the real Corvette' integrity speak.

What do you think?
Is it WTF time? Or time to wait and see what the true Corvette Racing story will be for 2012?

I doubt CR is leaving ALMS, Shifter. R/GA rules bans direct involvement by the manufacturers. Or at least, that's what I was told.

Dan Wheldon 1978 - 2011.

Was to be joining Chevrolet Racing via Andretti Autosport / Chevy V6 Indy power in 2012.
Corvette Racing, BadBoyVettes, and all fans were ready to welcome Dan to the Chevy family.

Now, all we can do is respect a great, hard-edged, racer by praying for peace for HIS true family and for all those that loved / respected Dan Wheldon. Prayers.

Very sad to see this happen. I hope his family finds comfort, and his friends like OG too.

Corvette Racing ran pink graphics at Petit Le Mans as part of Chevrolet’s ongoing efforts to help the American Cancer Society.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and this was Corvette's way to raise awareness. Even Jake got into the act, although he wore through the 'pink' by race-end, the commitment to the cause sticks.

Corvette, Chevrolet, and its dealers are committed with actions and contributions to doing the right thing to give support. Corvette fans know what to do, too. Thanks.

Thus far, Mosport is leading over 2-1 to any other race in ALMS fan voting for favorite race of 2011. Should the ACO be made aware of this? Should the ALMS do more to make their series fair? Good business? Go vote and let the Gods of sports car racing know where their bread is buttered!
