2014 Chevrolet Corvette under cover - teaser trailer screencap

Think back to the debut of the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro – a full three years passed between the concept's official debut in 2006 and when the production model launched in 2009, with a whole lot of hype in between. And why would the roll-out of the halo car Corvette be any different? That in mind, we bring you what General Motors is calling 2014 Corvette Trailer 1: Conception.

The video centers around the idea of form following function in performance vehicles, and the short film is full of images showing the new Corvette testing in the wind tunnel, revealing only snippets of the C7. Another key moment is found in the opening five seconds: a profile shot of the 'Vette under wraps, followed by several seconds of design sketches.

All in, there isn't anything too revealing to be found in this trailer. And if you remember correctly, GM did recently release another Corvette teaser, which would technically make this video the second trailer video. It's all moot though, as we probably won't see any sort of full, discernible reveal until the official debut on January 13 – the eve of the Detroit Auto Show. Check out the video below, and stay tuned for more teasers of the Corvette. You know there will be plenty to come.
