The area looks like Dillion Reservoir about an hour west of Denver in the high country. I cannot pick out the hotel/lodge but it does look like the area. Another high altitude testing area I've seen BMW use is the road up to Mt. Evans which goes up to 14,000 ft.

Also note, there is no spoiler, a much smaller front grille, almost completely closed vents in the front quarter panels, and, when compared to the StingRay sitting beside it, seems to be a little lower.

It seems like this might be a Corvette junior model.

GM please don't stick that six cylinder turbo that you have in a Corvette. What a way to ruin the Corvette...

Then lets hope for a V8 twin turbo
I thought about that, but figured they would not have thrown all the areo and ventilation away for a V8 TT.

Oh, by the way, I guess I am one of the purists which believe that a factory-built Corvette has no business with a TT engine. A factory-built Corvette should be either naturally aspirated, have a super charger, or evolve to be like some of the new supercars: an electric/hybrid.

UPDATE: See post #9 where the top three on the list are all hybrids: http://www.stingrayforums.com/forum/stingray-corvette-news/4642-z06-650-hp-650-tq.html

The front headlights is a lot more aggressive than the stingray. Also the height of the ride is lower than the stingray. I would like to add the red rear headlights compared to the clear headlights of the 2015 Z06. Maybe because it is still a prototype they do not intend to add a aero yet. In my opinion there is a huge possibility that this is no ordinary Z06 or a future upgrade for 2016 Z06 or another code name for a corvette.

Look close at the front tire tread. They have been hitting turns real hard with these cars. I wonder if they find that, because of the increased weight of the engine, there are clearance issues as high speed turns...
