The name Innotech may ring a bell.  No, it’s not the company from Office Space, that’s Initech and Initrode (damn Initrode).  It’s a Corvette tuning house that also happens to make supercars with Corvette hearts like the 800 horse 2010 Innotech Escalero.  Their latest project, the 2014 Innotech Aspiron is one part Corvette and one part Tramontana-style trackday chassis.  Innotech takes pretty much whatever Corvette...
