Will this be the best performing Corvette ever?

General Motors has officially unveiled the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The 2014 Corvette is the most powerful standard version of the Corvette ever offered with 450 hp and 450 pound-foot of torque. Chevrolet says that the new Corvette will be able to 60 mph in under 4 seconds and achieve more than one G of cornering grip.

The new Corvette is also expected to get better fuel economy than the current generation Corvette's 26 mpg on highway. GM says that the new Corvette shares only two parts in common with the previous generation Corvette. The 2014 Corvette has an all-new frame structure and chassis that also gets a new 6.2 L LT1 V-8 engine.

The car is also constructed from lightweight materials with the carbon fiber hood and a removable roof panel. The car also gets composite fenders, doors, and rear quarter panels. The car has an optimal 50/50 weight balance and will be offered with a special Z51 Performance Package making the car ready for the track with a dry-sump oiling system, limited slip differential, and more.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible: First Test Numbers with GM’s In-House Octo-cog Automatic

Nov 4 2014 3:28pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

No sports car should have chrome wheels. The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible you see here does. It also has an automatic transmission, GM’s new in-house designed and -built eight-speed unit, which replaces last year’s six-cog piece carried over from the C6 Corvette. The new transmission has two things going for it: First, it has more speeds in an era where more is more, and second, ordering it doesn’t require those shiny rollers. READ M ...

None of the cars made it away unharmed, but some were luckier than others. The Skydome sinkhole quickly became a national sensation, and Chevrolet ...

Sinkhole Corvette ZR1 “Blue Devil” Finally Restored to Pre-Cave Glory

Nov 4 2014 1:48pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

Back in February, the earth opened its gaping maw underneath the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and swallowed eight historic Vettes whole. It was a sickening sight–one you can relive here, with video caught the moment the sinkhole appeared–leaving eight rare Corvettes with a value of around $2 million strewn about the cavern floor like Matchbox cars. Now, the first vehicular victim of the sinkhole has been ful ...

Nov 3 2014 1:17pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

It doesn’t matter if you’re talking about American pigskin or European spheres: Professional football players love their big-dollar exotics. Chevy found this out the hard way when the fleet of free cars they offered to Manchester United soccer stars—including brand-new Camaros and Corvette Stingrays—went untouched by the superstar soccer players.

The Pre-Owned 400 Club: 5 Ways to Get 400 Horsepower (or More) for $20,000

Oct 30 2014 9:22am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We live in a world where 200 horsepower is economy-car fare, 300 horsepower is mildly interesting, and 400 horsepower is the minimum needed to command many enthusiasts’ attention. Big horsepower is affordable, too, if you know where to look. In the past decade, the world has seen its share of 400-hp cars, and they’ve now depreciated into the realm of attainability. At $20,000 or so, however, they’re not giveaways, and with as many as 100,000 miles on their odometers, they’re ...
