Far be it for me to start spreading rumors, but this one here is pretty interesting, true or not. After hearing Vice President Joe Biden rave so much about the new Corvette Stingray, it appears he might have recently taken delivery of one.
Evidently, the team at Chevy has no plans on slowing the momentum it’s been gaining with the C7. Then again, why should they? Less than a couple of weeks after debuting that hot new convertible Z06 everyone has been raving over, the carmaker announces that it will also be offering two more limited design packages.
This week, forum member “FYREANT” posted the topic “What did you nickname your new C7 Stingray?” A lot of folks posted great replies in the thread, but the response that really caught my eye was this one from “Whataguy”.
This morning, I began gathering data to write a post about how orange was a missing hue in the C7 Corvette paint scheme, but as I was scuba diving through the forums, news began to break from Corvette Forum members attending the 2014 National Corvette Museum Bash. According to forum member “mpuzach” (a.k.a. Mike), orange is coming back to the Corvette for 2015.
So how does this sound? Chevy: “We’ll give you a few hours to photograph the new 2015 Convertible Corvette Z06 for a chance to win $5,000.” Well, that’s exactly what happened, and a New York-based college student by the name of Dan Wang walked away with the cash and the opportunity of a lifetime.
