Either way, General Motors has not yet officially addressed the existence of a motor vehicle in development, despite many camouflaged cars driving around everywhere.
When asked directly if the car was to be this year's Detroit show, Chevrolet confirmed that it didn't bring anything at all. There is no time cut in the Chevrolet event form and it has not yet announced its own.
In addition, when Jalopnik asked a source of knowledge about GM product planning that informed us of the reputation delay in the development of the car if there were plans to show it in Detroit, the source responded that they were "99 percent positive" Don't happen.
Despite this, Jalopnik has sent me early to Detroit, where I now lie outside the Cobo Center with ten packets of cigarettes and a large thermos of black tea.

If you have any information about a surprise that reveals the Corvette mid-engine at this year's Detroit Auto Show, come find me at the Cobo Center. Or better yet, just send me an email.
If you ask me, I will not be hoping to see it soon.
