Well, the C8 Corvette is finally semiofficial. Late last week, General Motors CEO Mary Barra rode shotgun while Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter drove slowly through Times Square in a camouflaged C8 Corvette. Emblazoned on the side of the C8 was July 18th, 2019, which is reported to be the official launch date.

The rumors of the C8 being called a “Zora” had fuel added to them, as a C8 photographed in New York wore small Zora Arkus-Duntov Stickers on the mirrors and door handles.

It is also being reported that the C7 front engine Corvette is coming to an end; no C7 and C8 being built/offered at the same time. This means there is no reason to keep racing the C7.R. The good news for Corvette Racing is that a rumored all-new C8-based race car is in the works; there is even video of a C8 at Sebring International Raceway in Florida. If history repeats itself like it usually does, the C8.R will be announced sometime later this year. It is expected that the C7.R’s last race will be at the Petit Le Mans this year, with the C8.R arriving at the 2020 Rolex 24.

Featured Car of the Week

1969 Chevrolet Chevelle

1969 Chevrolet COPO Chevelle
1 of 1 COPO with Paint Delete Cowl Tag

What Mike likes about this car:
“COPO- Central Office Production Order.  This term has always sparked interest in collectors.  Why?  Rarity.
Bragging rights.  Only a few will ever have a COPO 427 Chevelle in their elite collection.  There are only so many of them to start.

But when you take one like our featured car and then add the paint delete cowl tag, well now you have something to really brag about.

What else do I like…. WHITE interior is my absolute favorite in this car and Stingray Corvettes.  This car comes with complete owner history and was previously in the Ken Lingenfelter collection.  Who’s collection will it be in next?”
