Multiple sources are saying that the Corvette Racing team is getting one car ready for the Six Hours of Circuit of The Americas coming up on Sept. 20.
It’s part of the Lone Star Le Mans weekend with the TUDOR United Sportscar Championship.
Over the last six decades, Chevrolet has produced seven different iterations of the Corvette. Some of the designs have been called revolutionary like the C2 years while others have more or less evolved from the previous generation like C5 to C6.
eBay Motors found a cool way to illustrate the design changes the Corvette has undergone over the last 60 years by showing an animation that morphs from the C1′s 1953 Corvette all the way through to the C7 2014 Corvette Stingray.
General Motors is creating two special C7s to be raffled off during the National Corvette Museum’s 20th Anniversary coming up at the end of August.
We don’t know yet what the 20th Anniversary graphics and stripe packages will look like – that will be announced later – but we do know the cars will be a Torch Red coupe and an Arctic White convertible.
We wondered when Top Gear’s British pontificator Jeremy Clarkson would give his low-down on the new Corvette Stingray.
Well, we don’t have to wait any longer, and believe it or not, Mr. Clarkson speaks very highly of Chevrolet’s latest creation from across the ocean.
“I’m going to make no bones about this,” he writes. “I drove the Stingray to, and then round, the Top Gear test track the other day, and while I admit that a clear blue sky can make any drophead seem acceptable, I absolutely loved it.”
If you’ve been to any of the major Corvette shows over the last several years you’ve probably seen the crew from CORSA swapping exhausts on Corvettes faster than a C6 ZR1 runs 0-100mph. Some of you may even have CORSA products on your ride already. Ever wonder where your products came from? Yeah, we did too. So last weekend during the Corvettes at CORSA show we took the opportunity tour CORSA’s headquarters in Berea, Ohio.
Listen to the sound of this Stingray as it makes its way through a car meet-up and then onto the streets.
Riding around in our friend Stangkilr’s C7 Corvette with a new F1 A Procharger kit, the pressure relief valve is LOUD AS HELL so we were driving around showing off a little, it’s hard not to smile the entire time you’re driving this thing!

That tremor you felt in the force last week as millions of people suddenly cried out and then were silenced wasn’t the result of some interplanetary conflict. No, that collective gasp heard online was the unveiling of a new Hot Wheel’s Darth Vader show car at San Diego’s Comic-Con convention.
The Darth Vader car is the first in a new series of Star Wars character cars from Hot Wheels available this October.
The good news is police found a red 2003 Corvette that was stolen in Moses Lake, Washington last Thursday morning.
The bad news is by that time, the alleged thief had crashed the car through a fence and into the back yard of a house in the 8800 block of Hillcrest Drive in Moses Lake.
If you’re not satisfied with the standard 460 horsepower of the 2014 Corvette Stingray, then you might want to talk to the folks at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.
They’ve just released several packages that will dramatically boost the Stingray’s output, starting with a jump to 550 horsepower and climbing in increments of 50 all the way to 750 horsepower.
Robert Drayton is a happy fellow these days.
After receiving a phone call earlier this month telling him that his ticket was chosen in the 26th Annual Classic Corvette Giveaway from Saint Bernard Parish and School, Drayton made the 800+ mile trek from New Jersey to Rockport, Indiana to pick up his prize – a fuel injected 1957 Corvette roadster.
