GM Releases Spy Shots of the Upcoming C6!
Corvette C6 Test Mule
OK, so you can't see the front end too well, but we can see larger side vents as well as a more angular roofline and hood. Here is what The Car Connection had to say about the Chevy’s upcoming C6 plans:

So Chevy’s future lineup will be broader than ever, with far more niche products. Of course, the brand’s flagship will remain the Corvette. And after a year’s delay, the long-awaited sixth generation ’Vette, or C6, will finally take its bows at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next January.

In an unusual move, Chevy has offered up its own “spy shot” of the C6. And though the automaker had few other details to discuss, TheCarConnection has learned that the “base” Corvette should punch past 400 horsepower. “It will have more of everything,” according to Bob Lutz, GM’s Vice Chairman and “car czar.” And that’s going to be especially true of the Z06 version, which is likely to top the 500-hp mark.

The design will be evolutionary, and “will (use) a lot of race car technology that will make it a better car. But it won’t be a race car plunked on the street,” according to development chief Dave Hill. Plans call for the coupe version to hit the street at the start of the 2005 model-year. By the ’06 model-year, Chevy will add a convertible and then the updated Z06.
