It’s Monday and that means it’s time for photo gallery of Corvettes! Here’s our salute to the 1963-67 Corvette Sting Ray with 30 random photos that we like to call Midyear Monday.
Here’s another Corvette Stingray tuned and updated by GeigerCars of Germany. Geiger has been the go-to tuner for American cars in Europe and this new Corvette Stingray build might just be one of their best yet. Check out some pics of the new GeigerCars Corvette Stingray at the shop of their wrap partners Print Tech.
Last week on the BBC’s Top Gear, we got to see the C7 Corvette Stingray make its first appearance on the British automotive show where it was featured for nearly 10 minutes.
The Velocity Yellow Stingray was put through its paces by co-host Richard Hammond and then it was compared and reviewed against the Porsche Cayman GTS. Of course, no Top Gear appearance is complete without seeing how the car would place on the leaderboard when driven by ace test driver “The Stig”.
While the TV version showed a split screen between the cars while the lap was being run, Top Gear has released the full video of the Corvette Stingray’s individual lap by The Stig.
A Latvian Corvette Z06 driver finds the perfect curve to get a little sideways in the snow:
A Corvette Z06 driver in Smiltene, Latvia lays down the throttle as he negotiates a curve in the road. An epic hoon in the snow but the ending is a bit abrupt. Did he go into the ditch?

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.
Some lucky person will soon have an opportunity to become the new owner of a verified 1969 Corvette L88 convertible.
But it won’t come cheap. A similar Le Mans Blue example that could trace its lineage all the way back to the original Georgia owner recently sold for a whopping $825,000.
This L88, ruled the real deal by experts David Burroughs and Tim Thorpe, will be on the block at the Hollywood Wheels Amelia Island Select auction set in Florida for March 12-15.
It isn’t easy to impress the folks at Consumer Reports, but the 2015 Corvette Stingray 3LT just did it.
The Bowling Green-assembled Corvette earned a total of 92 points in Consumer Reports’ annual rating of vehicles, highest out of all American sports cars. Runner-up was the Chevrolet Camaro SS with 66 points.

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!
