It’s a meme that’s been done before, but with all the interest in the next generation Corvette, enthusiasts will get a kick out of Hitler’s reaction to the 2014 Corvette. Porsche fans, not so much.
With the seventh-generation Corvette due to be unveiled Sunday and more than 20 other vehicle launches planned globally in 2013, General Motors announced today that it will also begin a new Chevrolet advertising campaign next month.
Barrett-Jackson is the largest and most extravagant of the five major collector car auctions taking place during the week of January 13. Over 1,200 cars including 125 Corvettes will cross the famous auction block with SPEED providing nearly 40 hours of live gavel coverage. Craig Jackson and his team put on more than an auction…they produce an extravaganza not to be missed.
General Motors has done a great job of hyping the reveal of the next generation Corvette, which will debut this Sunday evening at 7 pm. While the event will be held at an undisclosed location in Detroit with only invited media and paid guests from the National Corvette Museum attending, we are now learning that the reveal will be live-streamed on the internet.
All kinds of new cars and trucks will be on display at the North American International Auto Show in the coming days, but we know there will be one star that will shine brighter than all of them put together: the much-awaited 2014 C7 Corvette.
After unveiling its seventh-generation sports car to a select group of media and guests on Sunday, Jan. 13, the 2014 Corvette will make its official debut as a show car when its shown off to general automotive press on Monday morning, Jan. 14th.
As the holidays draw to a cold and snowy close, being an avid Corvette lover, your thoughts wander to the Daytona Sunset Orange Metallic coupe safely tucked away under the custom car cover in your garage and wander briefly what color the new C7 will be when it is unveiled on January 13th in Detroit. Like many Corvette “car guys” you’ve thought about several details of what the new generation of cars would look like and how they would perform compared to your C6. More than once you cursed yourself for being too late to purchase one of the hundred and fifty $995 tickets the National Corvette Museum sold to be one of the privileged few at the formal introduction of Chevrolet’s halo car to the media.
Calling it a philisophy based on inclusion, Grand-AM and the American Le Mans Series announced the new class structures that will take effect when the two organizations merge into one in 2014. The announcement came on Friday prior to the start of Grand-AM’s “Roar Before the 24″ test weekend at the Daytona International Speedway.
Corvettes, be they ZR1s or Z06s, have always seemed to rule in Edmunds’ Burnout Super Tests.
Driver Josh Jacquot’s latest challenge in his continuing series featured the “old timer” 2012 ZR1 against the “young whippersnapper” 2013 SRT Viper.
The other day I was researching an article about the upcoming Scottsdale auctions when I happened across a consignment at Bonhams® for a 1962 Corvette, an unadorned little picture that most collectors, even Corvette collectors, might pass right on by without giving it another thought.
I mean, even if you were looking for a first generation Corvette (there are over sixty other C1′s from which to choose during auction week in Scottsdale) you probably wouldn’t have paused on this one. And a good automotive journalist would never look here for a story. A good automotive journalist would spend their time writing about more flashy and exciting big block L88′s or the gorgeous Regal Turquoise 1958 C1 belonging to GM CEO Dan Akerson. And why not, they are great cars and sure to draw the attention of any “Corvetter”.
