DETROIT (Sept. 16, 2014) – Corvette Racing heads deep in the heart of Texas this weekend for the Lone Star Le Mans race and the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship at Circuit of The Americas. It is the second-to-last round of the TUDOR Championship and the race for the Championship is tighter than ever!
If you’ve always wanted a C5 Z06 but didn’t like the fact that it wasn’t available in a convertible or targa roof configuration, then we might have the perfect car for you.
But you better hurry.
At its Las Vegas auction coming up Sept. 25-27, Barrett-Jackson will be offering one of only two GMMG/Skunk Werks Corvette convertible Z06 models in existence!
We already knew that the C7 Corvette was hot. The car has taken home numerous industry awards and over 37,000 of them were built.
They’ve scorched the competition in various comparisons both on the track and off.
Over the last year or so we’ve seen countless wrecked C7′s. This one is easily the crispiest one we’ve seen yet. The entire car is well done like the finest filet mignon at your local steak house. It resembles the remains of Chernobyl after the 1980′s reactor fire and subsequent meltdown. In fact the only remaining components we can make out after the carbeque are the metallic components like the wheels, miscellaneous frame bits, and the mufflers.
We’ve heard of “dynamite” Corvettes exploding off the line at a drag strip.
But a suspect bank robber in Stanton, Calif., added a new twist to that scenario Monday morning.
The 62-year-old man was arrested in connection with a robbery at Bank of the West on Beach Boulevard in Stanton after a traffic stop at Katella and Western avenues.
That’s where it gets interesting.
We’ve all heard about the used car that was only driven on Sundays by a little old lady.
Well, here’s a 1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe that apparently really was driven by an older lady throughout its history before it was parked in a barn in 1973 and left there for the next 41 years.
The barn find was listed on eBay and reached $45,544 before the bidding ended early today.
With C7 Corvette Z06 production slated to begin sometime in 4th Quarter, we’ve been wondering where all the spy photos of the new supercar are. Like the Corvette Stingray, we know that Chevy has been doing extensive testing and will be making changes to the car right up until the time the first retail Corvette Z06 heads down the production line.
So it’s lucky for us that TheFastLaneCar.com’s Roman and Nathan got a tip that a group of Corvettes were doing some high-altitude testing in the high-country of Colorado so the duo jumped at the opportunity to track them down and see what’s going on.
One of the core missions of the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park has always been to promote the improvement of driver skills.
Now that the Motorsports Park has officially opened, that mission will roar into action with the inaugural High Performance Driving Event coming up later this month.

The recall problems for General Motors apparently have finally reached the top of the line, but maybe that’s a good thing.
This week’s announcement that GM plans to issue two more recalls (according to stop-delivery orders sent to dealers Thursday) on the hot-selling 2015 Chevrolet Corvette means the company really is paying much closer attention to safety than perhaps it did in the past.
