Official statement from Chevrolet:
"We can confirm that during routine testing, a Stingray was involved in a one-car accident. During evaluation, due to driver error the inside tire caught the edge of the pavement during a tight corner, leading to the accident. Thankfully, no one was hurt, the car received only minor damage, and no citations were issued."

I could... but I won't because GOD is trying to eliminate the C7 before it gets built.

I couldn't tell what it was....maybe a Ferarri or Viper?

Then I saw the Cadillac side vents and the Camaro ass end and realized it was a Corvette.

Wow, that's really terrible. Hope the driver was OK.

Looks like he hit a wall backing up at high speed.

Driver is okay and GM claims that the damage was minor to the car. Yea, right.

Lol yeah I know. I'm not trying to start anything, but damn. We have only seen the car in professional angles. When you see it in this photo, the rear window, everything flows just like a camaro. Put your thumb over the front half of the car and ask someone, "what car is this"... Lol

Wow, you make a valid point! I never looked at it that way. I was just sick of the rear end and the front grill. I liked everything else but using your thumb view, you make a very good point.
