As time ticks down on the remaining 2014 Corvette Stingray model year, it’s now too late to custom order a car. So if you want to enjoy a new C7 Coupe or Convertible this summer, you’ll have to select from the cars a dealer has in stock.

Long time national Corvette seller Mike Furman not only sells a lot of Corvettes (he’s currently over 3,100 and counting in his lifetime), but he has owned a lot of Corvettes personally as well. He recently sold his low mile 1992 Quasar Blue C4 to make room for another blue Corvette – a 2014 Corvette Stingray.
This will be Mike’s 14th Corvette that he has personally owned and as he told us, you can expect to see it – and him – on the road soon!

Our friends at Purifoy Chevrolet in Fort Lupton, CO. have done it again.
The dealership is known for not being afraid of taking a stock Corvette and adding their own custom touches to it. We’ve previously detailed a couple of their custom builds with C6 Corvettes but now it’s time to look at their latest creation, a custom pink metallic C7 Corvette Stingray.

During the National Corvette Museum’s Bash last month, we had the opportunity to speak to Mike Furman of Criswell Corvette. Mike has sold an astounding 3,100 Corvettes over his professional sales career and we liken him to be a modern day Bob Wingate. Mike is one of the star sales reps on the Corvette Forum and proves time and again that he will go the extra mile to ensure that your Corvette buying experience is as positive as it can be.

Cyber Gray has been a part of two major launches with Corvette. Back in 2008 the Corvette community got its first look at Cyber Gray when Chevrolet previewed the 2009 Corvette ZR1 in Jetstream Blue and an all new color, Cyber Gray Metallic.
Again, when Chevrolet wanted to introduce a new model, the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray, they went to Torch Red and and then brought back Cyber Gray.
During its run from 2009 through 2013 Cyber Gray was a very popular color, usually being in the top 3 colors. After using it in the launch of the C7 Corvette in 2014, Chevrolet has decided to retire the color and replace it with a new color, Shark Gray for the 2015 model year. Shark Gray is being used to preview the all new 2015 Corvette Z06.

In a stunning move last December, General Motors announced that it would be phasing Chevrolet out of the European market by the end of 2015 due to a challenging business model and instead it will focus its efforts on the automaker’s existing European brands, Opel and Vauxhall. GM did say that it would continue to sell “select iconic” Chevrolet-badged models in Europe but details were unspecific at the time.
