We can always count on Chevrolet chief engineer, Tadge Juechter, to lay the smackdown on anyone who wants to take potshots at his beloved C7 Corvette. During the yearly C5/C6 Bash at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Juechter quickly dispelled any and all myths about the C7 Corvette, including one where environmental regulations would force Chevy to strip the next-generation C7 of all of its appendages.

Despite still being a few years away from production, Juechter made it poignantly clear that there will be no emasculating the C7 Corvette and reports saying on the contrary are nothing more than punches in the air.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Let’s just hope it’s smaller, lighter and has a halfway decent interior. I’ve always loved Corvettes but I’d never own one — just too cartoonist and cheap feeling. If they can reel in the styling and build some quality into it, I might just be there

The flagship sports/top performance vehicles are usually not under the luxury brand name, unless you’re already a luxury car company. Think about it... the fastest track models will be strip down version of the car. Look at GM, Nissan, Ford, Chrysler....etc. You may get a model for the luxury brand but flagship performance vehicle.... nope. Performance can do without luxury, not the other way around.

Maybe they wanted it to be surprise to the public. Or to make a dramatic entrance.

I think you’re getting your panties in a wad over nothing. He’s saying "don’t believe everything you read." The article says what might be in the next Corvette.

Well, if the immission is the problem, chevy should also put this into hybrid technology, like what the Porsche did on their 911 turbo.
