It was just last week that Chevrolet announced the 2015 Corvette Z06 will make its debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and now they are confirming that Corvette Racing’s new C7.R will be there as well. The C7.R will be shown in full race livery and then will depart to Florida to take part in the Tudor United SportsCar Racing’s inaugural race at the Rolex 24 of Daytona on January 25-26th.
This yellow C4 Corvette crashed Sunday evening into the middle of a home at Richmond Street and Ridgedale Avenue on the north side of Odessa, Texas.
Rumors have been going around for months that the C7 Corvette would eventually have an improved automatic transmission.
Based on a technical paper summary previewed on the Web by the Society of Automotive Engineers over the weekend, a new eight-speed automatic will be available for the Stingray, perhaps as early as the 2015 model year.
Get ready for some beautiful sounds when you watch this video of Corvette legend John Heinricy test driving a 2014 Corvette Stingray with the Hennessey HPE600 package.
The last four minutes are pure music to Corvette enthusiasts as Heinricy, who has just been named one of three inductees to the 2014 Corvette Hall of Fame, lets the modified Z51 do the talking as he puts it through the paces on a track outside of Houston, Texas at the Hennessey Performance Group’s facility.
General Motors is tossing in the towel in Europe for Chevrolet, leaving the market there except for the widely acclaimed Chevrolet Corvette and an expanded presence for Cadillac as its premier brand.
Starting in 2016, GM says it will rely on its Opal and Vauxhall brands to compete in the volume market and that the Corvette and other “select iconic vehicles” will remain available in Western and Eastern Europe as well as Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
With the news that Chevrolet will be introducing the 2015 Corvette Z06 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month, speculation about the car’s details have ramped up from whispers to a dull roar. Leading the rumor mill over the last two days is this photoshop of a C7 Corvette Z06 which was reportedly done by a Corvette Forum member, as well as a leaked photo allegedly showing the performance car’s new supercharged engine dubbed the LT4.
Check out this video that shows Chevrolet testing a trio of C7s – two Torch Reds and a Velocity Yellow – on the Navak track in Belgrad, Serbia.
The Stingray has already been tested on the German Autobahn, where it roared to speeds of 300 km/h, in France, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.
A special event for the veterans of the United States Armed Forces brought Corvettes and Vets together for the first annual Vettes for Veterans. This was a very humble show that offered a nice break from the major auto industry shows like the 2013 SEMA show — it almost every way, the Vettes for Veterans show on November 9th was the exact opposite of the major industry auto shows of 2013.
Well, the moment Corvette enthusiasts have been eagerly awaiting is nearly here.
Chevrolet announced today that the 2015 Corvette Z06 will be unveiled to the public in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the same place where the 2014 Corvette Stingray first saw the light of day a year earlier.
