Motor Trend’s newest web show is called “Head2Head” and its all about comparisions of two similar cars. In the premiere episode, MT editor Angus Mackenzie compares the 2012 Corvette Grand Sport to the all new 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S. While it’s obvious from the beginning that Mackenzie has a favorite (and it’s not the Corvette), the “Head2Head” video still features some great eye candy as well as a hefty dose of the Corvette’s mighty 436-hp V8.
We’d all like to combine the styling cues of an iconic Corvette with the underpinnings of a modern C6.
Not many of us have the skills or money to perform such a transformation, however.
But thanks to the popular SPEED Channel show, Chop Cut Rebuild, and Corvette Specialty of California, we can all witness a C6 change into a Grand Sport tribute over the course of several episodes. And it won’t cost us a dime.

Our friends at Jalopnik bring us the unfortunate story of a crash at this past weekend’s Cars and Coffee gathering in Dallas. While most crashes at these events are usually the caused by hooning gone bad, in this case, an unknown medical condition caused a woman to crash into these two Corvettes with her Camaro SS.
When is a Corvette more than just a car?
When it happens to be the 1993 40th Anniversary coupe that has raised more than $300,000 at Barrett-Jackson’s collector car auctions, benefiting cancer research at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen).
We’ve got February 14th circled on our calendar and no, its not because it’s Valentines Day. This February 14th marks the return of a whole new season of Top Gear USA and if the third season is as good as this teaser video, then we’re in for one heck of a ride!
A hit-and-run accident involving a Corvette in the early morning of February 6, 2012 left a South Florida man happy he’s still alive.
Joe Amunategui told authorities he was headed eastbound on 826 just past Northwest 27th Avenue about 2 a.m. when a tractor-trailer clipped his C5 Corvette and drove over it, then kept going.
Driving in ice and snow is an experience most drivers would just as soon forego.
But, for British journalist Chris Knapman, the experience was “technically challenging” and “at times, just plain scary,” as he recently maneuvered a Corvette Z06 around an ice track at the Laponie Ice Driving school in Sweden, just 50 miles from the Arctic Circle.
And to think, some of us Corvette drivers won’t even let our cars get wet in a rain shower!
