[GALLERY] Black Friday! (41 Corvette photos)

It’s the final Friday in the month of February and that means it’s time for another installment of a “Black Friday” photo gallery. So here’s a random photo gallery made up of 41 black Corvettes spanning seven generations. We’re admitting in advance that the gallery does feature more black Corvette Z06s than ever before but that’s because they are more plentiful now that they are out on the streets.

If you love Black Corvettes as much as we do, make sure you share this page on Twitter and Facebook.

2014 Corvette Stingray Beats Arctic Blast of Old Man Winter

by Bruce Troxell on February 26, 2015

Car & Driver magazine is, and has been for many years, one of the top car magazines, with a history of colorful characters (David E. Davis and Brock Yates spring to mind) and outrageous comparison articles (Pontiac GTO vs. Ferrari GTO and the GMC Syclone vs. Ferrari 348ts, to mention just two). They never seem to pass up a chance to tip over the sacred cows of the automotive world.

We weren’t too surprised then when we heard of their latest, and maybe the ultimate, comparison test — a stock 2014 Corvette Stingray vs. the arctic blast of old man winter. This was not just a run-of-the-mill cold start test. You see, C & D’s editorial headquarters are in beautiful downtown Ann Arbor, Mich. and last Friday Michigan was the coldest state in the country. Ann Arbor had an overnight low of -30°F, which was just shy of the -44°F low at the North Pole!

[PICS] C7 Corvette Stingray Rides on Classic Five-Spoke HRE Wheels

We know that the Chevrolet Corvette has certain design points that are hallmarks of the model, yet look closely and you will also pick up certain design elements that are carried throughout the Chevrolet brand. One of the design hallmarks of a Chevrolet is the inclusion of five-spoke wheels. Whether it’s a Corvette Stingray, a Silverado pickup truck or a Chevrolet Cruze, most likely it comes from the factory riding on five-spoke wheels.

It’s also known that Corvette owners like to personalize their rides and one of the fastest and easiest ways to give your Corvette a new look is with a set of custom wheels. When it comes to Corvettes, HRE Wheels knows that sometimes owners want their wheels to have a little more bling, yet they want to stay with the classic stock look. If that’s how you feel, check out this Velocity Yellow Corvette Stingray riding on HRE’s RS105 forged wheels which feature the classic five-spoke design.

After the debut of the seventh generation Corvette Stingray back in 2013 along with the Corvette Z06 that bowed a year later, the automotive press has been pretty excited about the prospect that the next generation Corvette may be produced featuring a mid engine layout. Following a sighting of a possible mid-engine mule running at the Milford Proving Grounds, prospects do indeed seem higher for a new kind of Corvette – something that Zora Arkus-Duntov always wanted to pursue but was always foiled by the GM bean counters.
