LATE 2012: Corvette C7

The current ‘Vette has looked the same for nearly 13 years. Though it’s still an amazing car, delivering Ferrari-like performance for one-fifth the price, it’s dated in many respects. Expect a lot from the all-new C7 Corvette, then, with cool exterior cues like a split rear window and a vastly upgraded interior that’s well above the coach-class quarters of the present car. But handling, which has always been the car’s strongest suit, will remain largely unaltered. Horsepower targets in the 400-450 range would be a safe bet for this $50,000 car, even as GM aims to lower displacement to shave weight and nudge up the fuel economy. There might even be forced induction of some kind, and it’s perfectly reasonable to expect direct fuel injection for the newest crown jewel of the Chevy badge.
