TV’s longest running automotive series, MotorWeek, will feature 2 Callaway Corvettes on an episode debuting this week on PBS stations. The show will subsequently air on the Velocity and SPEED networks. Tune in to see the MotorWeek crew put a 25th anniversary SC620 and a SC652 427 Convertible through their paces.
A Washington state man is in jail, minus his special edition 2013 Corvette and 8 pounds of marijuana worth $30,000 on the street.
That loot plus tens of thousands of dollars in cash was seized Friday after the execution of a search warrant in Grayland, Washington by Pacific County sheriff’s deputies.
Authorities didn’t say what would happen to the car, but someone may eventually get a good deal on the Yellow Grand Sport Corvette, which has been driven only 108 miles!
Mark Carlyle and his twin-turbo, atomic orange C6 Corvette just keep getting better and better.
Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a win to show for his outstanding performances.
In late October, Carlyle dropped below the 7 second mark with a record 6.99 time (at a record-setting 209 mph) in the semifinals of the LSX Drag Radial Class. But Carlyle ended up losing in the finals to Mark Brown.
As the Chevrolet Corvette enters the last year of the C6 generation, it’s surprising to see that the popular sports car – which has earned kudos for its quality for years – has suddenly landed on the listing for Least Reliable listing in the latest Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey.
Our research on the Web couldn’t turn up the reason for this sudden poor rating, but at least the Corvette can take solace in the fact that muscle cars in general appear to have had a rough year.
Chevrolet’s Spark has ignited a lot of interest so far among American buyers.
Now GM India is trying to see if it can light up a similar explosion of sales for the new creation from Chevy with heavy promotion of the car in all parts of that country.
One reason for the intense interest in the Spark is its silky smooth 4-cylinder motor that delivers 38 miles to the gallon on the road, 32 MPG in the city. GM India is even offering a LPG version of the motor.
Despite being in the twilight of its final year of production, 2013 Corvettes continue to be sold by Chevrolet dealers in strong numbers. In the latest sales report from General Motors, 1,167 Corvettes were sold in the month October. This was a 23.4% increase from the 946 Corvettes that sold in October 2011 and for the 2012 Calendar year, Corvette sales are up a 4.6% with 11,737 Corvettes built between January-October 2012 vs 11,216 Corvettes during the same period in 2011.
We came, we saw and we survived another great week at the annual SEMA show. We’re leaving Las Vegas Friday morning to fly across the country and so we thought this would be a great time to drop our photo gallery of Corvettes on display at the show.
CORSA Performance is well-known for their exhaust systems among Corvette owners and at SEMA they have introduced a new air intake product which will be available in early 2013. CORSA’s Performance Intakes are designed to increase the amount of air flowing into your C6 Corvette, providing increased performance and better fuel economy over the stock air intakes.
CorvetteBlogger is very happy to announce a new addition to our list of quality sponsors. CorvetteMods.com is a Texas-based retailer with 1,000′s of quality Corvette parts warehoused in their facility and ready to ship within 24 hours. We took a look through their catalog of C3-C6 Corvette parts and came away very impressed with their selection.
C6 Corvette owners looking for more power have often turned to supercharging their LS3 engines but in doing so, it often required the expense of adding a new high rise hood to insure the proper fit. At the 2012 SEMA show, we learned that Magnuson will be offering their new “Heartbeat” TVS supercharger that fits under the stock hood of an LS3-equipped Corvette.
