Last Monday we caught wind that the successor to the 505-horsepower Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was out testing. However, some details on that car, such as what appeared to be a convertible top and front brake vents, had us scratching our heads. Today one of our spy photographers spotted what is sure to be the follow-up to the previous Z06, but this time we won't speculate on its name (for now we'll call it Z06, not Z07).
Spy photographers have just snapped images of what may be the next evolution of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette – a high-performance Z07 version to follow up on the Z06 model from the last generation. While the car you see in the photographs above is completely covered in body cladding and camouflage, we can spot a few clues that have us believing a track-tuned Z07 model is up and coming.
According to a report in Car and Driver, the new C7 Corvette version of the Corvette Z06 will pick up practically where the ZR1 left off. First, they predict it will graduate to being called the Z07; if so, it will be the next General Motors Regular Production Code (RPO), like Z28 and, yes, Z06, to become a model name.
