Mark your calendars. General Motors officially confirmed that the seventh-generation 2014 Corvette will debut on 1.13.13 (Jan. 13, 2013) in Detroit. The new Corvette also gets a new badge, as a sign of all the new things it comes with. The new emblem is modern and technical, and so is the car.
Since its birth in 1953, Chevrolet Corvette always had the Crossed Flags logo but in different designs. Chevy says the new badge’s more technical, more angular and more swept appearance symbolizes the new car. So there’s a clue on what the new Vette looks like.
The new Crossed Flags logo was unveiled at Road Atlanta, where Corvette Racing celebrated a sweep of the 2012 production-based American Le Mans Series GT championships.
We are not sure what to make of that ‘technical’ bit. It will be great if the new Corvette gets more technical and technologically advanced, but it could also mean compromise on traditions. We’ve been hearing for a while that GM is considering revamping the Corvette, making it more European like. There was even rumors that it will get a V6 engine instead of a V8, which is kind of the Corvette’s signature dish.
Well, we’ll find out soon enough.
