It’s not nearly as challenging to build a high-powered car if you don’t have to worry about gas mileage.
But the engineers at Chevrolet do, thanks to government mandates, so they are buckling down and taking it a step further for the upcoming supercharged Corvette Z06, according to a story from Automotive News.
Who knows? Perhaps one of the college students who recently took part in a unique learning experience at the Corvette Assembly Plant will come back one day and help General Motors design its C8 or C9 Corvette.
The aspiring engineers – members of the National Society of Black Engineers – belong to three chapters of NSBE at University of Tennessee-Knoxville, University of Illinois-Urbana/Champaign, and University of Pittsburgh.
“America’s National Park of Speed” the next challenge for Corvette teams in TUDOR Championship
DETROIT (Aug. 6, 2014) – Four Corvette Daytona Prototypes and the Corvette Racing team’s two Chevrolet Corvette C7.Rs will contend for class victories this weekend at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
No less an expert than the NCRS National Judging Chairman Roy Sinor chose this car nine years ago for a collector who asked him to find the best L88 he could.
Sinor settled on this 1969 L88 Stingray after it had undergone a two-year rotisserie restoration finished in 2005 and gave it 94 points out of a possible 100.

After all, nothing helps sells a Corvette like girls, a ventriloquist with his ‘dummies’, and of course, Santa Claus.
Welcome to Operation Air Flow where we’ll take a bone stock 2009 Corvette and bolt on some extra horsepower via a Carbon Fiber air intake and Sport exhaust system from CORSA Performance. After each item is installed we’ll hit the dyno for some real horsepower and torque numbers. The end goal is to show you some easy ways to unlock some extra ponies from your ride.
With all the modes of transportation that a Corvette engine has been put in over the years, it’s hard to believe that no one has thought of putting one in a jet ski.
But that’s what yacht designer Kurt Strand is working on right now.
Bearing the somewhat naughty name of the Wet Rod, the jet ski will reportedly have a Corvette 5.7-liter V8 motor capable of 300 horsepower and propelling the personal water craft to speeds of 65 mph.
Check out the view from a C6 Corvette as it runs behind the Corvette Pace Car during the PIT Rally on Colorado’s Central City Parkway. The course is 7 miles, 4 lanes wide, 23 turns and a 2,500 ft hill climb through the Rocky Mountains.
Chasing a GO4IT Racing Corvette (pace car) in my street C6 Corvette on Central City Parkway in Colorado during PIT Rally 2014. Hit a top speed of 140 MPH, averaging 104 MPH over 6.9 miles and 1500 ft of overall elevation climb. I was admittedly a little hesitant around some of those blind turns!
