2017 Corvette Stingray changes
Expecting radical design changes from Chevrolet will be unrealistic. They have moved the cockpit slightly forward and downward to add dramatic changes in their aesthetic appearance. The nose retains the same tapped edges with pointed shape with more aggressive cooling canals, and a front splitter larger in size. The nose bents slightly downward allowing greater visibility, but slop has been kept minimal to provide greater suspension. The rear cut shown in the profile is reminiscent of the Porsche and the LA Ferrari. This causes lower air pressure in the nose and allows air to flow efficiently through the duct line. The figuration remains same with no change in lighting elements. Aggressive ducts for cooling, rear bumper, dual spoilers, and rear diffuser etc., change the visual appearance from that of the standard Corvette.
2017 Corvette ZR1 Interior
The interior design team of Chevrolet Corvette has tried to made things look more luxurious and elegant. One can expect several layers of leather, carbon fiber and alcantara to decorate the interior of the car. By incorporating LED strips and LED screen the Chevrolet has tried to provide the state of the art facilities in its new version car. One can naturally expect much improved seats and squared steering wheels with aggressive styling as seen in Ferrari or Lamborghini models.
2017 Chevy Corvette specs
The present engine of Chevrolet Corvette is the most powerful one ever released by the GM. If it further wants to increase the horse power from its present bench mark of 650 horsepower, it may extend it upto 700 HP with a torque of 700 pounds per feet. Any further increase may cause traction issues. There is also a rumor about the possibility of a hybrid model that uses electric motors similar to Porsche 918. But this model is not likely to come out until mid-cycle refresh. The present engines’ transmission choices will be similar to the Z06 which is having seven or eight speed automatic transmission. The engine will be capable of achieving 0-to-60 sprint within 2.8 seconds with the maximum possible speed limit fixed to 215 to 220 mph. it is also possible that the fuel efficiency of this car can be calculated from the rated mileage of 25 mph in the highway.
