2015 Corvette Stingray Pricing is Quietly Raised Another $1,000

It was only back in July that we got our hands on the dealer prices for the 2015 Corvette Stingray and those prices showed the base Non-Z51 Coupe starting at $53,000 while the base Non-Z51 Convertible started at $58,000.

Now this may be old news to some, but we learned today that in early August Chevrolet quietly raised the MSRP of the 2015 Corvette Stingray’s four models by $1,000. The new starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price of the base Corvette Stingray Coupe is now $54,000 while the base Corvette Stingray Convertible will start at $59,000.

Those guys from Regular Car Reviews are back and this time they review the 2014 Corvette Stingray. There’s a lot to love in the new Stingray and during the video you will see a couple of instances where they are blown away by the new Corvette. But because the C7 Corvette has been “so hyped in every blog”, they decided to take a contrarian view at the end and point out all the faults of the C7, real or imagined.

This isn’t the first time we’ve showcased a Regular Car Reviews video and if you’ve seen one yet, you’re in for a treat. Here’s their videos for the 1979 C3 Corvette review and the 2008 C6 Corvette Review.

Be warned, some content may not be safe for a work environment.

The Corvette C7 represents America’s desire to be taken seriously in the eyes of Europe. This is nothing new. We’ve been doing it since Henry James Ex-Patted his way from coffee house to coffee house trying to capture the perfect Portrait of a Lady. The C7 goes off faster than I do when I refrain from TOUCHING MYSELF for a week. You can’t see out the back because the ass of the car is higher than your head. Plus, this car is so hyped in every blog…so we’ll see.

[PICS] The 2014 Corvettes at Carlisle Show

Another edition of the Corvettes at Carlisle show has come and gone. Despite the in-climate weather, this show remains a must-attend as there is just so much see and do. In fact, I’d say that a day at Corvettes at Carlisle in the falling rain beats a day sitting behind a desk anytime!

At Corvettes at Carlisle, we walked and walked and walked some more. From the swap meet to the sales corral, from the Chevy Engineers tent on the Manufacturer’s Midway with the new Corvette Z06 to sitting up on the hill with friends and looking at all the remarkable Corvettes parked row after row, we saw it all.

And thanks to our camera, you can catch a glimpse of one of America’s premiere Corvette shows in the gallery below.

The family of a Corvette driver shot and killed by police last year after an hour-long chase that was televised live will receive a $5 million settlement following a vote Wednesday by the Los Angeles City Council.

Two city council members voted against the settlement, saying they felt the city had a good chance of winning a lawsuit filed by the family of Brian Newt Beaird, 51.

Last December, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies began chasing Beaird in his Corvette in Cudahy after they suspected he was a drunk or reckless driver. When the chase reached the LA city limits, the LAPD took over as Beaird continued to drive erratically and at high speeds on freeways and surface streets in his C6 Corvette.
