Default Their WILL be a Sting Ray Corvette... come look!

Will this be equivalent to the Z51, or even better? Supercharged option??? It's nice to finally confirm that the Sting Ray is back however, I'm just trying to wrap my head around how they are going to market it. Is it standard or a option??Click the image to open in full size.

I've been told that it is not an 'option', the emblem will be displayed on all models

I assumed as much from this article today:

GM design chief Ed Welburn this week unfurled a poster on a table at his office in suburban Detroit showing images of the remodeled Corvette along with Stingrays from 1959 and 1963.

I want this image on every kids wall, he said in advance of the Jan. 13 unveiling of the new car on the eve of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit

Stingray is back!

Really? That seems a little off because from my understanding it was a option back in the 60/70's.

Every Corvette that left the assembly line from 1963 to 1976 was either a Sting Ray or Stingray, depending on whether it was a C2 or C3.

Hmm.. makes me wonder if GM product planning has the following long term vision :

Using Corvette as the GM ultra high performance division umbrella brand name ( no more market bottom - feeder " Chevy " name plate ) , with the iconic sports car series called " Stingray " , and then ultra high performance versions of re-bodied mini-utes, sedans, etc, having their own names--think MBZ with AMG and BMW with " M " or Audi with " RS " .

And sell this Corvette line at Cadillac dealerships , away from the gang outside of chain -smoking 20 -something year old "floor ******" who mark you as the next " up " as you roll into a typical Chevy store hoping to sell you a Cruze .

If you look at the stickys there is an actual picture of the rear of the car. You will notice the lack of round taillights....

Interesting observation, like they say "a picture is worth a thousand words".

They show a photo of a 1963 coupe which is a Corvette Sting Ray, yet they say it's a Stingray. For an automotive enthusiast magazine you would think they could get something that iconic correct.
