    I am still betting on John's schedule from the C7 teaser that we will have one on June 10 as well

      I was wrong on my earlier prediction that the next teaser would not be until Father’s Day. I still think we will see two more vids before the reveal, one the week before the reveal with actual “final” pictures in it — but like the C7 reveal process, they would be pictures of very small areas leading us to even debate what we are seeing.

      As to the one in between today and July 11th, my wild guess is that it would contain some powertrain picture hints (but no numbers). I based that on the fact that they totally revealed the LT1 a couple of months before the C7’s reveal and so far we only have this one screen print about the LT2.

        Cool to see another official teaser.

        And I didn’t get an email notification either.

          For those wanting a quick link to the first GM teaser:

          And if you are wanting a complete list of all the official GM teaser steps so far:

          Screen print found by the ever-everywhere (with thanks) to Corvette_Nut. What do you suppose that singular center stripe is? It did call to my attention a different front grille opening — and maybe that is the point of it, e.g., to more closely tease reveal what the real grille opening is going to be like.

          What will be next coming from GM?
          The one in this screen shot looks like a very early C8 prototype with C7 Z06 hood, C7 mirrors, C7 a-pillar, C7 roof, and maybe even C7 headlights.

            Thanks Jag. I now agree fully. That’s why we have such threads, e.g., to share and to learn. I have learned about this particular mule as a result of it.

              Just a couple of remarks after watching the video: Another NASA clip, I wonder if NASA or the Air Force has any locations in Orange County that would be appropriate for the reveal.

              Secondly, no production car was featured in the video, every vehicle was pre-production, concept, or race car. Also most of the vehicles appeared on competition courses.

                The intro with the track action goes by very fast, so I dumped it into my video editor and slowed it waaaaayyyy down:

                  It looks like a very early test mule before much of the aero was worked out. You can tell its a kit-bashed and chopped C7. There would be no side scoop at this point in development but you would absolutely have an opening of some kind to test weather the re-sized/re-located radiators provide adequate cooling. This one even had C7 A-Pillars.They can't fool us LOL!

                      Good suppositions DWG! Aerospace & Aerovette fit together, but I looked and no NASA facilities within Orange County (though the Jet Propulsion Lab at Cal Tech is about an hour north of Orange County).

                        Well, it is a stretch, but the upper stage (S-IVB) that sent the Apollo lunar missions from earth orbit toward the moon was built by Douglas Aircraft Company in Huntington Beach, California. The S-IVB provided the translunar injection burn on 16 July 1969 and Apollo 11 was mid-way between earth and the moon on 18 July .... I cannot possibly see why Chevy would choose anything to do with this, but it is a connection between the space clips in the videos and Orange County.

                          In those days, the astronauts were getting new Corvettes, I think for a $1 or something like that. Perhaps they were given theirs on July 18th. We sure are all grasping at straws here.

                          Or is it simply what a certain member of the team whispered not officially, that July 18th was the day when all the entire team (including Mary Barra and Mark Reuss) was free at once. and within the general time frame they were wanting???

                            Picture of 1960 CERV1 — first mid engine that Zora engineered. Picture thanks to CorvetteOnLine. BTW, it has 60% of its weight on its rear wheels.

                              It contains both of the teaser videos and a little more.

                                I, literally, just received the email from GM with the video information! Was it timing or did they read all of the reports from subscribers that didn't get it originally?
