Chevrolet has formally announced the worst-kept secret in years: the 2014 C7 Corvette will make its debut at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 13, almost 60 years to the day the original concept Corvette was introduced at the 1953 GM Autorama show in New York. We assume Chevy will be leaking small glimpses of the vehicle from now until January, and we doubt it will be able to keep it completely under wraps till then, but the hunt is what makes the game so much fun. It has, however, released a photo of the Crossed Flag logo, which now has a sharper, swept appearance to suggest speed, and more color and detail for depth. Chevrolet says that this echoes the new car’s direction of more speed and angularity. The new logo actually was unveiled at Road Atlanta a few months ago, but it originally appeared in 1953 on the first-ever Vette.
Chevrolet has created a website for enthusiasts that will slowly meter out more information, photos and videos before the big reveal, as well as keep everyone connected to social media informed and updated. Log onto www.one13thirteen.com, as well as facebook.com/corvette and on Twitter with #Corvette, @Chevrolet and #one13thirteen, with the latter being the most important because those folks will receive exclusive updates. And be sure to check back here on 1/13/13 for full details on the all-new Chevrolet Corvette.
