How do you make any year or model of Corvette even more bad-ass than they already are? Put them in the hands of Johnny Law!

Corvettes have a long history of being used by police departments everywhere from DARE anti-drug show cars to being used as pursuit vehicles. Whatever the reason, nothing screams faster than fast than a Corvette with a police livery and an emergency light bar flashing.

So for a special Friday image gallery, we present these really cool Corvette police cars. Do you have a favorite Corvette in this week’s gallery? Let us know and be sure to share this page on Twitter and Facebook.

2016 Corvette Shaves 20 Pounds Thanks to New Body Panels by Continental Structural Plastics


One thing about Corvettes: You can count on constant innovations and improvements to the car every year.

Just check out this announcement Tuesday by Continental Structural Plastics, a supplier of body panel materials for the 2016 Stingray.

By becoming the first production model to use the TCA® Ultra Lite™ material, the new Stingray coupe has shaved 20 pounds off its total weight.

Now that the C5, C6, and C7 are here, some people don’t have as much respect for the C4.

But back in the day, those of us old enough can remember what a significant change the 1984 Corvette represented over the C3.

Corvette Beats Porsche to Win J.D. Power’s 2015 APEAL Study

Corvette Beats Porsche to Win J.D. Power's 2015 APEAL Study


I finally took the plunge and test-drove a C7 Corvette last weekend.

My brief five minutes behind the wheel of a seven-speed Torch Red Z51 Coupe made me an instant believer in all the hoopla about Chevrolet’s latest generation of America’s Sports Car.

Going from the first year of the fifth generation (I have a 1997 Torch Red Coupe) to the first year of the seventh generation in one day showed me just how much the car has been improved, not that the C5 is a bad car by any means, though.

2016 Corvette Prices Going Up for Dealers While MSRP Remains the Same

2016 Corvette Prices Going Up for Dealers While MSRP Remains the Same


We are just finding out that GM has done another “stealth” price hike on 2016 Corvettes effective for orders after July 17th but this is a little different from the nearly half-dozen price hikes that Corvettes buyers have seen since the initial C7 Corvette pricing was announced in April 2013.

What is unique about this price increase is that it hits dealers while keeping the Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) the same.

Corvettes on eBay: Barn Find 1960 Corvette Would Make a Great Project Car


We love barn finds and got another fun one to share today that is now listed on eBay. It’s a non-running, non-driving, non-starting Vette that has (nearly) all the bits and pieces needed to restore and it only requires your time and money to make it whole again.

[ACCIDENT] Walk Around of a C7 Corvette Stingray Hit by a Drunk Driver


If there is any behavior behind the wheel of an automotive that is the scourge of our society, it’s the practice of driving while intoxicated. We’ve share more than few stories of Corvettes being hit by drunk drivers along with the damage caused by owners who were behind the wheel of their Corvettes when they shouldn’t have been.

The amount of lives and property damage that could be saved by simply handing the keys to someone else is staggering with some estimates of the costs of driving drunk ranging to more than 10,000 lives and $130+ billion each year.

So with that being said, we are sharing this video of a Corvette owner walking around and checking out the damage to his car after it was recently hit by a drunk driver.

We’ve been fans of Vengeance Racing ever since we saw them leave a massive burnout in a Chevrolet’s dealership parking lot with one of the first Corvette Z06s delivered. Since then, the Georgia tuning shop has continued to make multiple changes and upgrades as they research the deep well of tuning opportunities available on the base 650 hp super car.

An all-electric car based on a C6 Corvette Z06 is apparently just around the corner.

But based on the gee-whiz performance figures being promised by the manufacturer, Genovation Cars, it won’t stay around the corner for very long.

Apparently, this isn’t your 4-year-old’s electric Corvette.

We’ve seen a lot of great custom Corvettes over the years and some great builders too. But one of our favorites is Rod Saboury and his SEMA 2012 show car known as the Black Widow.
