It was back in August that we learned the General Motors produced 37,288 Corvette Stingray for the 2014 model year and now we’ve got the breakdown on the production statistics.
Leading the way was the Corvette Z51 Coupe which accounted for 41% of the models built and the most popular color was Torch Red which can be found on nearly one of out of five (19%) 2014 Corvette Stingrays.
If you can’t afford the real thing, this might be the next best thing.

A woman’s brush with death has given a new purpose for her black 1974 Corvette.
Jennifer Barnett knew something just wasn’t right with her body last year. She found a large lump in her left breast in August 2013, and about a month later, doctors gave her the grim news – she had stage IV breast cancer that had apparently spread to her liver.
She embarked on a year of chemotherapy aimed to keep the cancer from growing, and by February, tests showed that the breast tumor had indeed shrunk – but the tumor in her liver had not.
