Digital Trends: How Corvette Engineer's pulled off the impossible

Two of Chevrolet’s brains behind the scene say they believe the 2014 Corvette Stingray accomplished all its goals, with nothing left behind on the cutting-room floor.

“I don’t think there was anything,” says Roger Clark, senior manager energy center. “We got virtually everything we needed in the Stingray, and we’re absolutely delighted with the results to be honest.”

Buy This Artwork for $150,000 and Get a Free 1963 Corvette Split-Window Coupe

Back in the early 1980s, I was stuck with an old Buick that I tried to sell for months for $500. I finally got so desperate that I ran a humorous ad hoping for a response, something along the lines of: “Free 1979 Buick, with purchase of $500 watermelon.” I finally sold the car for $300 but left it running outside the tire store where the new owner picked it up. I was afraid it might not crank again and he’d call off the deal.

Now, fast forward to 2013, and this offer we bring you today is so-o-o-o-o much better. If you buy this beautiful abstract 40×60 painting of a blue 1963 Corvette by Timothy Raines, you get a real Split Window Coupe for free!
