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.

The bad news? GM is about to issue two more recalls. The worse news? Both actions cover one of our favorite cars, the C7 Chevrolet Corvette.

Sep 12 2014 8:50am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

GM is on the cusp of issuing two separate recalls for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. After a month without recalls, the two hiccups are centred over problems with the Corvette’s airbags and parking brake cables. According to a GM spokesman via Automotive News, roughly 2,800 cars are affected and “very few” customers have taken delivery of the cars. The airbag recall covers 2,000 cars, most of which are s ...

Chevrolet Corvette Zora ZR1

Sep 11 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

Well, well. It seems that when I predicted that the trademarking of the Zora name by GM would lead to a mid-engined Corvette, I wasn’t just full of hot air. Since I wrote my first piece and clamored on about the mid-engined future in the TopSpeed Podcast, both Motor Trend and Car and Driver have written pieces claiming this to be the truth. We already covered the piece by Motor Trend, but the details from Car and Driver are fresh.Currently ...
