There won't be an FRC C6 - not a notch back anyway. The Z06 will need the fast back to break the 200 MPH mark, IMO. Also, I seem to reacall that we've heard officially that it is a fast back (hatch? .. who knows?).

Sorry if someone has already pointed this out, but I'm new to this forum. I live in Scottsdale. This picture was taken in Phoenix. If you are familiar with the I-10 signs, and the direction it's going, you could make an educated quess that this transporter is headed for the GM proving grounds. I believe that's around Mesa.

Molded in wheel flares... Covered up vs the other C6's on the transporter... Headed for the proving grounds...
Hot weather testing (this time of year in AZ)...

I'd bet that's a Z06.

I keep thinking that this could be the new C6-R, but I've been wrong before..........I think.

It is the caddy.

The new Z06 has slooped glass like the coupe.

The notchback is gone.

The pic that C6NUT400 inserted (black car) definitely looks like the Caddy. The original pic on the transport does look like a 'vette. It doesn't look "carved up" like a Caddy - it's more rounded. If the new ZO6 is sloped, all the better. I never much liked the C5 and I really never liked the hardtop version (ZO6 style). IMHO the C5 vert is the best looking of the lot and that's only with the top down. Damn I"m picky...
