Chevy continues to tease us while testing its newest sports car.

The video, uncovered by CorvetteBlogger, shows two heavily camouflaged prototypes on public roads in Leadville, Colorado. At 10,152-feet of elevation, it's the perfect proving ground for high-altitude testing. The near-four-minute clip shows the supercars briefly – most of their time spent hidden by the ZR1 – but it provides more evidence of the Corvette's imminent arrival.

How the Porsche 928 Was Inspired by a '50s Corvette Experiment .
Many people think of the Porsche 928 as a "German Corvette," but the connection is much deeper than you might remember. The fifth-generation (C5) Corvette was an extremely advanced sports car when it debuted, with some radical changes compared to the car that preceded it. One of the biggest changes was the C5's use of a rear-mounted transaxle, which made for better weight distribution and a roomier cabin. It's a drivetrain layout that's been a signature feature of the Corvette ever since.
