Over the last few weeks, the interwebs have been all aflutter with the latest round of mid-engine Corvette rumors.

If you’re looking for a wide body C7, the folks at Forgiato have a couple of 2014 widebody Stingrays ready for you – a blue coupe and a yellow convertible.

Remember that great video that Chevrolet put out extolling the features of the new Valet Mode with the Performance Data Recorder? Activating the Valet Mode allows you to record front-facing video as well as capture audio from within the car so you can help keep your Corvette safe when it’s in the hands of others.
Well it turns out that recording audio from within the car may be considered a felony in some states that require notice and consent to individuals that they are being recorded and now GM is sending notices out to dealerships and customers alerting them to this fact as well as promising a future update to the PDR system.

A white C5 Corvette was hit from behind by a Jeep in Somers, Wisconsin earlier this month, sending at least three people to the hospital.
The Corvette was eastbound on Highway K and was trying to turn south into a driveway when it was struck in the rear by the eastbound Jeep.
Finally made it!
The theme for this year’s FunFest was “Vets with Vettes” and so not only was it great to see all the Corvettes out in the fields but to have the opportunity to talk with our nation’s veterans and see all the patriotic displays including the traveling Vietnam Veteran’s wall memorial was something we’ll never forget.
Last week in the days leading up to Corvette FunFest, we actually found ourselves back in Bowling Green at the Corvette Assembly Plant with a group of auto writers who were assembled by our friends at Mobil 1.
After touring the new Performance Build Center where the new LT4 supercharged engines are being assembled by hand, some of the group ventured out onto the floor of the plant and that is where this 2015 Corvette Z06 in Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic was spotted.

Owners could choose several options including different width fenders, unique rear clips in addition to Sportwagon, Panelwagon, and hatch back rear end treatments. If you failed to order one these of kits back in the day, you’ve another chance at it with this Eckler’s Can-Am wide body we stumbled across on eBay.
GeigerCars of Germany is no stranger to the world of Corvettes, so it’s no surprise that the tuner company knocked it out of the park with its C7 supercar.
Their latest creation won’t come cheap, but if you want a Corvette Stingray that you won’t see every day on the street, you might want to talk to them.
