    Nate pointed out to me that Chevrolet showed off a new color that will be introduced later in the 2018 model year: Sebring Orange.

    Interesting name. Could we see some C7.R's in that color next March? I know yellow is the standard, but it would be cool.

    Or it could just be a reference to sunsets.

    The last orange was Daytona Sunset, so going from Daytona to Sebring might be the only reason for the chosen name. I doubt the race car would change, but I'd support it.

    Now that I think of it, it's not like they raced a green car at Lime Rock. It would be a cool one-off though. Maybe they can even put a Dutch driver in the car

    Update 2:15 p.m. An astute reader points out a digital copy of that Car and Driver story is now online at Corvette Forum, and here is what we learned from that:

    The ZR1 is essentially “a Z06 with more,” meaning it doesn’t get anything too radical like an all-new engine. They even have the same gear ratios and both can be had with either a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic.
    Still, the engine has a new designation: LT5, like the C4 ZR-1 had. It’s got a bigger supercharger than the Z06's LT4, and torque is rated at 680 lb-ft. Other differences: larger throttle body, different fuel injection system, strengthened crankshaft.
    Aside from the rear wing, everything from the A-pillar back is Z06, in terms of the body.
    It’s heavier than a Z06 too to the tune of about 140 pounds.
    The suspension setups are the same, just with different tuning. No new parts here.
    The ZR1's front wheels are half an inch wider, but both standard and optional tires are the same as the Z06; the ZR1 gets the Z06's optional brake rotors and calipers too, with new pads.
    It shoots flames from its exhaust. Which is good. Not enough cars do that from the factory.

    That is not a pretty face. Solid pass for me. I'm still all about the GS.

    They're announcing it in Dubai, I don't think it's a coincidence. Overpriced, overstuffed and overstyled = Dubai cars.
