As announced by GM on its official press site on Thursday, October 18, 2012, the 2014 Corvette will make its debut on Sunday, January 13, 2013 in Detroit during the auto show, marking the seventh-generation Corvette. To start the countdown, Chevrolet released the new Crossed Flags logo for the new sports car.
“The all-new, seventh-generation Corvette deserved an all-new emblem. The new Crossed Flags design reflects the character of the next Corvette.” Ed Welburn, GM vice president of global design, was quoted in the report. The company said more than 100 versions were considered before arriving at the final design.
“The flags are much more modern, more technical, and more detailed than before – underscoring the comprehensive redesign of the entire car.” Welburn added. The debut of the 2014 Corvette will also mark the anniversary of the first Corvette version, which was first shown in New York on January 17, 1953.
As noted in the report, the 2014 Corvette logo is a “more technical, more angular, and more swept appearance – in proportion that symbolizes the new car. It is also a more detailed representation, showing greater depth, color, and attention to detail.” No further details of the new car were mentioned.
“Winning the ALMS championships with the Corvette C6.R, against prestigious competitors from Ferrari, Porsche, and BMW is the perfect send-off for the sixth-generation Corvette. The seventh-generation Corvette will build on that success.” Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter said, with 2014 Corvette also known as C7.
“With the new Corvette, we set out to build a world-challenging sports car with design, refinement, efficiency, and driver engagement that is second to none. There are only two carryover parts from the C6 used in the C7 – the cabin air filter and the rear latch for the removable roof panel.” Juechter added.
Meanwhile, Chevrolet is inviting the public to visit their official Corvette Facebook fan page and to follow their official Corvette Racing Twitter account (@CorvetteRacing) to get future updates about the new 2014 Corvette sports car.
