Earlier this month we provided the factory details about the recommended procedures for properly breaking in your 2014 Corvette Stingray. Those procedures are based on reaching 200, 500 and 1500 miles. As more and more Stingrays end up in customers hands, we found out that GM provides a visual clue on the tachometer in regards to the 500 mile break-in process.
CNN Money is raving about the new Corvette as an American car that can take down the Porsche. Is the CNN author’s perspective accurate? Let’s quickly examine the validity of the claims.
I really like how the Corvette Stingray sounds on these dyno videos. Like this one from Late Model Racecraft after a Heads/Cam swap. With those upgrades, the car is pushing 470 rwhp. Headers coming next.

Last week, reports of a 6 month wait for your new C7 Corvette swirled around the internet. Since then the topic of Corvette Stingray demand has been talked about all over the interwebs. With that in mind we decided to take a look around the ‘net and see what we could find for sale. Read on to see what we came across.
Garcia, Magnussen look for ALMS GT drivers’ title at end of 1,000-mile enduro
DETROIT (Oct. 14, 2014) – Only one more race separates Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen from the American Le Mans Series’ GT drivers’ championship. Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta is the site of the final round of the 2013 ALMS but also the series’ finale as well. The 1,000-mile/10-hour endurance classic has been a staple at Road Atlanta – an hour northeast of Atlanta – since its first running in 1998.

What a great shot of a Corvette Stingray wrapped in a black matte exterior! The matte black really highlights the individual straight edges on the hood and yet it also seems to accentuate the curves.
The C7 Corvette was spotted at a Cars and Coffee gathering in California over the weekend.
Here’s another 2014 Corvette Stingray that met its demise much too soon. Like the Velocity Yellow Corvette Stingray accident we showed last week, details on this crash are so far non-existent. We can only surmise that based on the windshield, this Corvette was involved in a serious accident and may have been rolled. Let’s hope the driver is okay!
When all is said and done, the ultimate goal of the 2014 Corvette Stingray is to make money for the company that manufactures them and the dealers who sell them.
Based on the early returns, we’d have to say, “Mission Accomplished!”
Edmunds.com reports that the new Stingrays are doing a burnout on the 950 Chevrolet sales floors where they are available across the nation, with the cars being sold within an average of five days after arriving at the dealer.

The debate had ranged for months.
To wash or not?
Let’s face it. Since Chevrolet started delivering the new 2014 Corvette Stingrays, it seems like they are now everywhere. My twitter and youtube feeds are full of new spottings and First Time videos, but this video of two Corvette Stingrays on the dragstrip running against each other was something I had to share!
