The seventh generation Chevrolet Corvette will be introduced Jan. 13 in Detroit, a few days prior to the North America International Auto Show, and will feature little from previous editions of the iconic sports car that debuted in 1953.
The new Corvette will have only two parts from the sixth-generation Corvette — a cabin air filter and the rear latch for the removable roof panel. The current generation Corvette, or C6, was introduced as a 2005 model.
As as tease to the 2014 Corvette, the automaker revealed the vehicle’s new crossed flags logo. The new logo was selected from more than 100 logo candidates.
General Motors said production of the 2014 Corvette will begin in the third quarter of 2013.
Chevrolet will introduce 13 all-new or majorly updated models during 2013. Last week, the brand confirmed that list would include the all-new 2014 Silverado pickup, Silverado HD pickup, Tahoe and Suburban SUVs, all-new 2014 Impala sedan, Spark battery-electric vehicle, 2013 Cruze diesel, 2013 Sonic RS, 2014 SS performance sedan, refreshed 2013 Traverse SUV and 2013 Equinox with a new V-6.
