Chevrolet has Produced Over 8,200 Corvette Z06s in 2015

At the National Corvette Museum’s Bash, we learned that 8,206 Corvette Z06s have been produced so far in 2015. That count is as of April 22nd, so by now that number has probably grown in the few days it’s taken us to digest this information.

Regardless of the Corvette Z06’s 2.95 second 0-60 mph time or a 1.2g lateral grip, when you get down to it, the most important number is how many can GM sell. Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter called 2015 “The Year of the Z06″. Now we know why!

Members of Chevrolet’s Corvette Team were at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash last week to rollout information about the 2016 Corvette and we were there with camera’s rolling to bring the full experience of the What’s News Seminar to those who couldn’t attend.

Presenting on behalf of the Corvette Team was Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter, Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles, Corvette Interior Design Manager Ryan Vaughan and Bowling Green Assembly Plant Manager Jeff Lamarche.

[PICS] Chevrolet Pays Respect to Corvette Racing with the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition

On Friday, Chevrolet introduced all the changes and upgrades to the 2016 model year Corvette. Today, we take a closer look at the limited edition 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R edition which pays homage to the factory-backed Corvette Racing team.

The Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition will be available in fourth quarter 2015 and is limited to just 500 units. So if you want one of these, you better start talking to a dealership about getting on a list because we don’t expect these to hanging around dealership lots once they are produced.

[PICS] Classic C1 Corvette Restomod on HRE Wheels

Normally our custom aftermarket wheels posts usually consist of new Corvette Stingrays and Z06s wearing new wheels. Just last week we shared an Arctic White Corvette Z06 wearing ADV.1s from Wheels Boutique. Here’s another entry from the wheels outfitter, but this gallery features an early Corvette with a set of HRE wheels.

When a early Corvette is reborn as a restored, the general consensus is that the owner or buyer wanted the the dependability and performance of a late model Corvette with the iconic looks of a classic Corvette. And with modern running gear under the car, that opens up the possibilities of adding aftermarket wheels on the car to make it look just right.

[STOLEN] Family's 1977 Corvette Stolen from Private Garage in Maryland

A piece of Charles Estelle’s life is missing.

Now, he’s just hoping someone out there will be able to help him bring his prized 1977 Corvette back home.

The orange Corvette, in the process of being restored and “probably about two months from being road ready,” according to Estelle, has been in his life since he was just 7 or 8 years old. That’s when his dad bought the car. Charles was so small, in fact, that he had to sit on a pillow back then just to see out the windows.

We just completed Day One of our three days at the National Corvette Museum for the annual Bash event. No 2016 Corvettes were on display today and several potential 2016s had the C7.R car cover we first spotted at SEMA last year. So you can imagine our excitement when Bowling Green Plant Manager Jeff Lamarche showed up at the end of the day with a 2016 Corvette Stingray in the new Corvette Racing Yellow.
