  • One more San Diego sighting today

    This time we get a pair! You can see just how large the air intakes are one these. Of course, that could be part of the cladding covering up a more subdued element below it. It does appear to be slightly differently shaped on each car, but that could just be perspective and lend distortion.

    Judging by the surroundings maybe they are trying to inspire confidence that the "flatbed" issue is gone - at least that is what I think when I wander through neighborhoods without door and windows. In the alternate they may have been on a crack run- lot of miles to put on.

      All the recent backgrounds have a meaning.

      This one means the car will be very affordable.

      We have now seen a coupe and convertible in San Diego, so this pic is probably of them together.

          I still have not thought of a good reason as to why the cladding is back. Germany = "naked". Detroit = "naked". California = "fully clothed". Why?

            This question was raised during a comparable time in the C7’s development. It was answered right after its reveal, with our being told that as the only ones who add or remove camo cladding from GM vehicles are the staff of its specific, secretive “Masters of Disguise” Michigan facility. They bluntly said when this was asked way back then, that they do not have time to bring the cars back from where they are to Detroit to do that removal process, that each car is high busy doing is assigned specific testing program that can not be interrupted by such a cross country trip, etc.

              That's pretty interesting! Makes sense though. Let the engineers and drivers do their jobs without having to worry about camo (unless of course it falls off).

                FYI, I've been pouring through the aero patent that surfaced a couple days ago. I'm making a video on that now to be released within a couple of days.

                  San Diego is home to many things that are simply fantastic.

                  If I had the dough, I'd pull the rip cord right now and start enjoying my 72 degree sunny days hanging out with Agent 001.

                  Because of this, it's common that the automotive industry hosts product events and does some developmental testing of its vehicles there. If you've got the budget, why not?

                  SPIED! All-new, C8 Chevrolet Corvette

                  Funny enough, some journalists got more then they bargained for while testing another manufacturer's product outside of San Diego. Our friend, Lauren Fix, snapped and even nabbed the all-new C8 Chevrolet Corvette on video.

                  And it wasn't just one. We're talking about a massive convoy of next-gen C8s.

                  Joining the convoy was also a Porsche 911 Turbo. So, that gives you an idea of just how high GM's performance division is setting the benchmark.

                  001 also spent some time enhancing the spy shots so you get even more detail.

                  While the cars are still camouflaged, we're thinking this is the Corvette in its final stages — shakedown testing. The last time we saw a GM performance convoy of this size, the product reveal followed within a couple months.

                          Makes sense. I was thinking maybe they throw the cladding back on because the car is now in production form underneath, where as before they have added foam and fake shapes.

                            Our guess is that the vehicles they are testing at the Yuma army facility Or GM has 40 miles of test roads, and which is a no-fly:no visibility zone, have no camo on them, and perhaps those at GM’s Milford Proving Grounds have a little or none on them also m.
