DETROIT — The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, the high-performance version of the Corvette, will debut in January at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, Chevrolet confirmed on Wednesday.

A single teaser photo of the Corvette Z06 shows a wheel, Michelin tire and part of the car. The Z06 in the photo is dressed up in a premium Corvette color, Velocity Yellow Tintcoat.

Production is expected to begin in late 2014. Pricing and specifications were not announced.

Chevrolet described the latest version of the Corvette Z06 as "the most track-capable Corvette ever, designed to deliver supercar levels of performance through unique powertrain, chassis and aerodynamic features."

The top-of-the-line Corvette rounds out a lineup that includes the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and Corvette Stingray Convertible. The Stingray Convertible goes on sale this month.

"Chevrolet is America's favorite performance car brand, and for 2014 we are going to offer enthusiasts more choices than ever before," said Alan Batey, Global Chevrolet senior vice president, in a statement.

Edmunds says: The debut of the Corvette Z06 amounts to a one-two punch for Detroit automakers, since it will follow on the heels of the December debut of the 2015 Ford Mustang.

    MY2015? We are still in 2013. Typical marketing trick.

    Massive wheel gap persists

  • pure speculation about the wheel gap. One cannot possibly tell from this photo. What you can see are super aggressive pilot sport cup tires, model-specific wheels, and a glimpse of a carbon fiber wheel shroud over the fender. Interestingly enough, there seems to be a break in the linearity of the carbon fiber side skirt. Perhaps it tapers in toward the rocker panel, like the 2 Chevy Corvette concept cars from SEMA? The pictures of the supposed Z06 testing in Northern AZ showed huge fender gaps in front because the fenders had actually been cut back. Maybe they were base model stingray front fenders that were cut to allow those huge front tires and avoid rub? Front grill/opening will be a dynamic design change from base model, based on spy photos. I'll be interested to see if rear diffuzers are added to the lower rear end of the car.
