Default What is Chevrolet Up to Now?

Lot# 3040...

It doesn't sound like much but you never can tell.

While looking through the lists of cars going through the Barret Jackson auction next week I saw a big Chevrolet Bowtie where there should be a picture of a car for Lot# 3040. This, of course, got my attention right away so I had to read further. The description says:

"A special Chevrolet model will be revealed during the auction where bidders have the opportunity to take home this one-of-a-kind vehicle. Proceeds to benefit AARP Drive for Hunger. Will be sold at approximately 2pm Saturday January 20, 2012.

Have you ever wanted to own a piece of history? This may be your chance. A special Chevrolet model will be revealed during the auction where bidders have the opportunity to take home this one-of-a-kind vehicle. **PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT AARP DIRVE FOR HUNGER** **WILL BE SOLD AT APPROXIMATELY 2PM SATURDAY JANUARY 21, 2012** "


Chevrolet has had a history of auctioning off special cars at this auction for charity dating back to when, in 2008, they auctioned off the first 2009 Corvette ZR1 for $1,000,000 with the proceeds going to the American Red Cross.

After that, they have auctioned off other cars including the first 2012 Centennial Edition Corvette Z06 and a 2012 Camaro ZL1.

So, that leads us to wonder what Chevy his hiding behind the curtain on Lot# 3040? While GM has remained mum on the topic, most people believe that the C7 Corvette will be introduced in 2014 and that 2013 will be the last year of the C6 generation.

While it's much too early for Chevy to show anything on a new model that's at least 2 years away we could be looking at a special edition Corvette. 2013 will mark the 60th Anniversary of the Corvette and many people are hoping to see a 60th Anniversary Edition, but again GM has been very tight lipped.

Of course, the rumor mills have been going strong about a Camaro ZL1 Convertible as well. Or, the mystery car may not be a Corvette or a Camaro. The much anticipated 2013 Malibu is getting ready to hit the dealer's lot and could make a preview here. Or maybe they've got something brand new up their sleeves.

Whatever they are planning the one thing we can be sure of is that we won't be disappointing. These charity auctions have raised a lot of money for some great causes and have featured some very special cars and we expect nothing less this time around!

The ZL1 convertible has already been announced as a 2013 to go on sale this summer.

http://www.caranddriver.com/news/201...announced-news

The rumor mill is that there will be a 2013 special edition, and a couple of people on this forum who have some degree of inside information have hinted at what it could be.

But given that the ZL1 Camaro is not even out yet, it certainly could be that car. Should be interesting to see. Thanks for posting Dave.

GM has sold vehicles out of its' heritage collection before.....no reason it has to be a current or near current production vehicle.

I am thinking its either a 60th anniversary Corvette or a ZL1 Camaro Convertible, thats about all the current model stuff that would sell. Of course Chevy could always pull something out of storage to sell.
