North American Auto Show Set to Open in Detroit

Detroit News - January 6, 2013

At least four-dozen con­cept and new pro­duc­tion vehi­cles will debut at Cobo Cen­ter [Detroit] dur­ing the North Amer­i­can Inter­na­tion­al Auto Show Jan­u­ary 19 – 27.

Guess which car is set to dom­i­nate the spot­light for vis­i­tors.

But the much-antic­i­pat­ed, sev­enth-gen­er­a­tion Corvette is like the Blue Man Group show­ing up at Sun­day school. Every­body wants to see it. They’ll deliv­er their opin­ions, set dreams for the future and maybe place orders.

Through­out the past month, Chevro­let teased the ‘Vette-lov­ing pub­lic with a series of dra­mat­ic videos. One alludes to the new car’s unprece­dent­ed lev­el of elec­tron­ic sys­tems inte­gra­tion. The excit­ing shape and well-craft­ed inte­ri­or are glimpsed in oth­ers.

The instant­ly rec­og­niz­able ‘Vette has more sharply creased char­ac­ter lines and dra­mat­i­cal­ly peaked front fend­ers. Sills and spoil­ers flare fur­ther. Lou­vers and scoops abound — but design­ers eschewed the jet-fight­er look, instead updat­ing the recent tra­di­tion of a sly grin on the ‘Vette’s face.
