Corvette Stingray Returns

4 posts in this topic

Well,...there have been "rumors" of a new Stingray for awhile...but, yesterday I got a confirmation from a friend of mine at GM that indeed the STINGRAY is set to return. Based upon the solstice/sky platform, the new stingray will be introduced quite soon !!..or so it seems. GM has done several "production mock ups" of this model, which will expand the "CORVETTE" brand into a TWO Model line, & there may be More Corvette models in the future !

Another "tidbit" I was told is that GM is seriously considering bringing back the "GRAND PRIX"...possibly even the GTO !!! They may "return" as either Chevy or Buick models !!!!

:rwd:

I agree, I've always liked the Sky. Would have been nice to see it live on.

MDM I dunno who "confirmed" this to you, but the Kappa platform is dead. It was too costly and too inflexible, and was for a market that was too small in the current market to be worth spending money on. If you've got a source other than "a friend" then by all means show us. Would be cool if it were true, but color me skeptical until then.

I dunno about that ^, ...seems like you just described to a tee the Corvette market !!!

We will see what we see, & I agree....it would be real nice to have that platform as a stingray. The reasoning is to create a "entry level" vette, under 30K...then have the current corvette 40-60 k & a super car vette (ZR1) 100 K plus, all in the mix.

I can't say WHO told me this, but it is fairly reliable, they actually SAW a prototype like the picture above ,...we'll see if indeed it is true.
