Trailer full of 2014 Corvette Stingrays spotted on the roadThu, 15 Aug 2013 00:00:00 -0700
If you're a Corvette fanatic dying to take delivery of that C7 you've placed an order on, take heart: There's a vehicle transporter laden with 10 (or is it 11?) 2014 Stingray coupes roaming the American southwest.
Submitted by Autoweek reader Dan Becker, the photo doesn't tell us much about the car, but at this point we're all fairly well-versed in the details. Two different five-spoke wheels are visible -- most are black but we see at least one shiny set -- but beyond that, nothing is visible; the cars' tight wrappings don't even betray a sliver of the colors underneath. Still, that silhouette is unmistakable.
The biggest question in our minds is, where are they all headed? Becker says he caught the transporter somewhere west of Albuquerque so an appearance at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance isn't out of the question. Though Chevrolet still hasn't announced a release date for the Stingray, we're still expecting it later this year. We're sure Chevy dealers are craving the car as much as enthusiasts, so this could represent an early shipment to a dealership.
Either way, we're bound to see more 'Vettes on trailers as the release date -- whenever that is -- approaches. So keep your eyes peeled, and as always, let us know if you spot anything interesting.
