Earlier today Chevrolet announced the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible would be revealed in Geneva on March 5th. We also learned that when the new Stingray Convertible returns to the States, one of the first visits will be the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Palm Beach. It is there that we will witness
Rick Hendrick buying up the auction of the very first retail VIN Convertible with the proceeds going once again to charity.
Usually when we think of TV shows about performance cars, we think about heart-stopping performance, custom paint jobs, or an electronics-love interior.
Well, a new TV show called Strippers: Cars for Cash on the UK’s National Geographic Channel takes a very different approach to that formula.
Chevrolet issued a news release this morning that confirms the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 5, 2013. News first broke about the possiblity of the Convertible’s reveal in Geneva in late January and dealers are being told the Stingray convertible could be available for sale by the end of the year.
It’s a shame that a deal couldn’t be worked out between General Motors and the organizers of the Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday night to spotlight the C7 Corvette.
With seemingly the entire world watching, it would have been a great time to get some more publicity for the 2014 Stingray, which has already set tongues drooling since being unveiled to the public on Jan. 13.
Chevy promises that if you can afford to buy a C6 Corvette, then likewise you can afford the exciting new C7 when it comes out later this year.
Well, for those of us who couldn’t even afford a new C5 back in the day, much less a C6 or C7 nowadays, toymaker New Bright has just the ticket for us: an exclusive 1:8 scale radio control version of the Corvette Stingray that features an extremely detailed interior and working LED headlights.
While in Detroit for the 1.13.13 reveal and the North American International Auto Show, we talked with Craig Sass who was the Interior Design Manager on the C7 Corvette. Craig and his team were responsible for totally redesigning the interior of the Stingray. To say they were challenged in this task would be an understatement based on the constant criticism of the C6 Corvette’s interior. But now that the 2014 Corvette Stingray has been revealed, the interior design team has earned high praise and respect for taking the interior space of the Stingray to a whole new level.
Velocity Yellow has always been a popular color with Corvette enthusiasts during the C6 years and Chevy has carried over the color to the 2014 Corvette Stingray. Out in Arizona where it seems all the “EX” validation Corvettes are testing right now, a yellow Corvette Stingray was spotted working out with a black and Laguna Blue Corvette.
Well, this is reverse technology if we ever heard it.
Everyone knows that Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Jeuchter says they stuck with a big, bad V8 motor in the Corvette because it delivered better fuel economy with the new Active Fuel Management system that shuts down half of the motor when appropriate than a smaller motor was able to do.
