It seems that Chevrolet has been copying Porsche's strategy in recent years

The basic model sets the stage, followed by a more powerful

aggressive Z06, a well-rounded variant that uses the Z06's broad body and base engine

, and lastly a totally thermonuclear all-out attack in the shape of a ZR1.

As of now, the eighth generation of the venerable Corvette has continued to follow that trend.

The iconic yellow livery of the All-New Chevy Corvette Z06 GT3.R remains.
