2014 Chevrolet Corvette: First Photos

Two months ago we brought your exclusive first renderings of the 2014 Chevy Corvette. Those images, in ZR1 trim, were based off our first-hand look at the new sports car. As you'd expect, they ignited a firestorm across the automotive world, with many believing what we showed you were fake. Hell, even GM an automaker who claims they never comment on future product issued a weak-ass denial of the authenticity of the images.
But now this morning, thanks to our friends at KGP Photography, we have these first spy photos of a pre-production version of the new Corvette.
You never should have doubted us.

These images show the 2014 Corvette the seventh generation C7 Corvette testing in the real world as a production-spec IVER prototype. And as you can see, everything seems to match up quite nicely to our exclusive renderings. For starters take a good look at that rear end four pipes in a trapezoidal exhaust opening.
Check out the hint of Camaro-esque taillights. Yup, that's totally the distinctive look we revealed in the middle of November.
Next, look at the roofline. Does it look familiar? It should it's the exact same one we showed you back in November.
Or the front end with that big open-mouthed grille? Yes, that's precisely the look you saw in our renderings.
The A pillar? Totally what we showed you. The kick at the bottom right corner of the door? It's there too.

Take a look through both sets of shots and compare for yourself. I think you'll see why we were so excited to bring you those renderings back in November. Those who were in our corner thank you. Those that weren't? Don't worry about it we know it won't happen again.
