Member Spots C7 Corvette Stingrays Testing in San Diego!

February 16, 2013 at 8:03 pm

Our sister site Camaro5 member Schmidty just spotted this black C7 today in San Diego! There was also a red C7, which they didn’t get photos of. Here’s Schmidty’s account of the exciting sighting:

ChargedCamaro and I went for a cruise today up to Borrego Springs to enjoy our cars in the awesome California weather (went from 52 degrees and snow to 84 and sun in the matter of minutes)! Thank God my buddy has no sense of direction because we missed our turn at the bottom of the mountain, but when we went back this Black Beauty had just parked in a lot we were about to pass. ChargedCamaro redeemed himself and pointed out this lucky find so we cornered the cornered in the lot and blocked all exits! Turns out there were a couple prototype Corvette’s doing some testing on the mountain. We chatted up the Development Engineer and asked if we could take pics. I believe this Black One is the Sport Prototype and they were testing steering. The red one was on the mountain with a large black van behind it (secret service? haha). The engineers joked that it was protected by Pit Bulls. I asked about the blue one which we had seen pics of the crash on different blogs. He mentioned it was a friend of his who was driving it and that it had also recently been on the mountain. Anyway, wanted to share a few pics. This car is absolutely beautiful in person! ENJOY!
