[VIDEO] 2014 Corvette Stingray – Enemy of the Same

[VIDEO] 2014 Corvette Stingray - Enemy of the Same

We saw this 30 second commercial last week just hours after Chevrolet uploaded it to their YouTube channel and it had garnered 300 views. If you follow us on social media, you would know that we tweeted and posted the video to our Facebook page. In nearly one week, the video has been watched over 2.6 million times. That’s an amazing amount of views that shows the interest and excitement in the new Corvette.

We were really hoping that its arrival on Thursday afternoon would mean that it was scheduled to air sometime during Sunday’s Super Bowl broadcast, but alas, that was not to be. And that’s a shame because showing a Corvette commercial during the Super Bowl would have conveyed a “new seriousness” from GM about how it markets its halo car.

Remember that story about Beyonce doing the Super Bowl halftime show with the 2014 Corvette Stingray? Well, that didn’t happen.

What did happen was the red 2014 Corvette Stingray was on the field during the post game celebration but it got zero coverage by CBS Sports. And despite a tweet from Corvette’s John Fitzpatrick confirming it was the Red Corvette that was in the house, there has been no announcement from Chevrolet regarding the MVP award.

Retro Rear End Kit Brings Nostalgic Round Tail Lights to 2014 Corvette Stingray

For months now, in the aftermath of the Jalopnik renderings, critics of the polarizing new C7 rear end have been threatening to perform “plastic surgery” on their own and change what the GM designers came up with.

Now it appears that those who don’t like the new treatment at the back of the 2014 Corvette Stingray can really do something about it, thanks to the folks at www.corvetteitalia.it.

As he promised, “Ah-nold” is back and badder than ever in The Last Stand, which opened last week, and for Chevy fans, it doesn’t get any better with two of the most awesome cars the Bowtie Brand has ever produced, in starring roles.
