A police officer cruising the Lenox Mall in Atlanta saw a C6 Corvette parked in the fire lane. As he pulls behind it, the car’s driver comes out of the mall. The officer attempts to question him and the man jumps in the car, locks the doors and takes off at a high rate of speed.

C7 Corvette Update in March 2011 Car and Driver

by Keith Cornett on January 31, 2011

C7 Corvette Update in March 2011 Car and Driver

Car and Driver magazine has the following update on the next-generation C7 Corvette:

“The Corvette continues as front-engine, V-8 powered, but GM is reportedly working to reduce mass (or at least hold the line) to maintain C6 performance. Slightly longer than before, the C7 will have styling allegedly inspired by the split-widow ’63 Sting Ray. Interior quality, not a Corvette strength, is now a high priority, and GM has set Audi as the benchmark for materials and fits. Three versions will be offered: base, Z06 and ZR1 (base versions may be called Grand Sport). At launch, the V-8 portfolio will mirror today’s, ranging from 430 to 638 horsepower. Later, all three engines will undergo displacement reductions to improve fuel economy.”
