Drive Wire: Are We Getting A New Corvette ZR1?

Intriguing developments for Corvette fans – General Motors has trademarked the ZR1 name with the US Patent and Trademark office. This could mean potential big things are afoot with the Corvette as the ZR1 name strikes fear in the eyes of European exotics. We’ve already heard rumors that Chevrolet wants to close out the C7 generation with a bang by bringing out a Corvette that’s even mightier than the supercharged 650 horsepower Z06. If things line up the way they appear to, expect to see this monster at the 2017 auto shows. Now, it’s just possible that the filing was just a legal procedure to protect the legendary ZR1 name… but we know what we want to believe.
