We’ve been following both Car and Driver and Edmunds.com as both sites have been keeping their readers regularly updated on the ins and outs of owning a 2014 Corvette Stingray.

Car and Driver recently came out with an update on their long-term test car – a 7-Speed Manual Z51 Coupe – and unfortunately they’ve encountered a few issues that hit at the reliability and everyday driveability of the new C7 Corvette.

[PICS] It's Not Everyday You See a Widebody C7 Corvette in Antifreeze Green

Well, one thing you can say for sure about this way-out-there, wide-body Corvette Stingray is that everyone will have an opinion about it – even your grandma!

It’s supposedly the widest (and maybe wildest) C7 convertible in the world, according to the fellow who posted a bunch of photos of his friend’s one-of-a-kind Stingray on Corvette Forum late last month.

Corvette Z06 Value Recognized by Competitors as SRT Viper Price is Slashed by $15K

An old adage says that imitation is the best form of flattery. Obviously we were not the only ones that recognized the high bar in terms of value set by Chevrolet’s performance leader, the Corvette Z06. The folks over in Auburn Hills (that’s Chrysler headquarters) also have come to realize that the 600 SRT Vipers sitting unsold weren’t flying out the dealers’ doors; in fact they aren’t even limping out the doors, and compared to the new Corvette Z06 things were obviously going to get worse for SRT’s sports car.

Last month only 38 SRT 2014 Vipers were sold. That rate of sale equates to a full year and a half supply of unsold 2014 cars and the 2015s are on their way. It doesn’t take a marketing genius to realize that when the new Corvette Z06 hits the dealerships in late December or early January things for the Viper wouldn’t get any better especially considering the price of a 2014 SRT Viper is $101, 300, over $20K more than the more potent 2015 Z06.

[VIDEO] Corvette Crashes During Street Race

by Keith Cornett on September 8, 2014

Via CorvetteVideos.TV

We know we’re guilty of sharing the occasional street racing video and its almost like a guilty pleasure of ours to hear those Corvettes revving up and driving hard after three beeps. We know its wrong, like checking out the latest leaked celebrity nude photos. It’s not like we go searching for them. They just seem to find us. But I digress…

Not every street race ends safely and it can be an educational experience to share the what happens when street racing goes bad story. To that end, we bring you this video that shows what can go wrong and how fast that wrong can come if you decide to street race your Corvette.

This street race starts out the same as most others do. Two high powered vehicles pace each other ready to have themselves a little speed contest. What’s different about this situation comes after both drivers mash the gas. The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 immediately breaks traction as the rear wheels spin free.

Visit CorvetteVideos.TV for the best selection of hand-picked Corvette videos.
