"We spoke with Corvette Exterior Manager Kirk Bennion about the colors and he confirmed with us that 2014 will be the last year for the popular Cyber Gray. In 2015, the yet un-named color will be take its place. GM uses different names internally than what we know, and the internal color name is called “Fusion Gray”. Bennion says they are still working on the official name but two names he mentioned are “Shark Gray” and “Tiger Shark Gray”. You can see the difference between the two colors with the “Shark Gray” being a much lighter shade of gray than the Cyber Gray. In addition to Cyber Gray going away, we also learned that this will indeed be the last year for Velocity Yellow. Although the new Corvette Z06 and C7.R show car introduced yesterday at NAIAS were Velocity Yellow, the 2015 Z06 will be wearing the new color when it goes into production in late 2014 or early 2015."

I like the new color. That plus the A8 may make me wait until the 2015 model year......
Do you think GM will offer both the A6 and A8 in 2015? When do you think they will retire the A6 from the non-Z06 StingRay?
No, I doubt it. It doesn't make sense as they would have to retool for 3 transmissions. The only possible way this would happen is if they had excess A6's at the end of the model run but since they build to order with their JIT manufacturing those days are gone too.

I see the A6 going away at the end of the MY2014 run but they will delay that news as long as possible to not steal MY14 sales.
It's possible, the SAE paper that leaked talked about the A8 for the 2015 Corvette but they could have meant the Z06, I hope not.
