Default A couple of recent pics taken today

I found these on FB. They were taken today in Yuma, AZ. Unfortunately not a lot of information other than they were taken in a hotel parking lot. For those in the area, keep an eye out.

Yep....HUGE wing. But no one knows if this will be the final wing.

why would anyone take a pic like that and NOT hang around to see the covers come off in the morning knowing the pics would go viral in a heartbeat?

He said a large enclosed truck picked them up. They didn't take the covers off. They just pushed them into the truck...

Ummm....too late. The pictures were taken at a minimum 8 days ago. Those cars are long gone.

Public parking lot...
"Security" (assuming it wasn't the hotel's ace security staff...) has ZERO authority there. Unless the photographer actually touches the cars/covers, the cars are in public, and therefore, public domain. Don't won't them photographed? Keep 'em at Milford.

Also notice that the car on the far side is a convertible and without a tall wing.

I think that puts a damper on the idea that the camo'd cars are some exclusive super-duper track car like an ACR.

There is another photo around that shows a convertible with the front end changes but with a very low wing.

I'm still of the impression that we are seeing 2018 Z06's with a new front fascia and with various aero packages(ie; base, stage 2, Z07, etc).

I'm pretty sure that this was a staged "spy shot" opportunity by GM's marketing as there is no reason for the two cars to leave the test faculty and driven to a motel to be left out overnight. Plenty of regular cars at the test facility for "engineers" to drive back and forth to a motel. The kicker is that the "engineers" did not get into the cars the next morning and drive them back to the test facility, but that a large transporter came and picked them up at the motel, and I bet that's how they got to the motel in the first place.

I agree with you, JoesC5. Likely marketing tactics to keep the rumblings alive.

It very well could have been staged; but I'm not sure. I was hoping to alert some members in the Yuma area would have seen them on the road and snapped some additional pics. They're probably in CA now.
