Our friends over at CorvetteOnline.com revealed a picture yesterday of what is most likely to be the engine that will be going into the successor of the C6 Z06, the C7 Corvette Z07.
Someone took off in the middle of the night over the weekend with a low-mileage 2001 Corvette Z06 that was being offered by a Minnesota used car dealer.
The silver Corvette, with just 30,248 miles, was up for sale for $20,995 at S&S Motors, 133 Zieske Road in Courtland, Minn., when video surveillance cameras show the car being driven out of the lot through a ditch at 3:07 a.m. Sunday. The thief or thieves then drove west on Highway 14.
Check out this interesting midyear Coupe we found for sale on eBay. The psychedelic sixties were over a long time ago but sometimes they live on as in the case of the paint job found on this 1965 Corvette, down to the peace sign painted on the gas door cover. The auction still has a couple more days to go and so far the top bid has just surpassed $20,000.
Edmunds.com has tested the new 2014 Corvette Stingray against just about every car seemingly imaginable, including the 2014 Porsche Cayman S, 2013 BMW M3, 2014 Nissan GT-R, 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S, and 2013 SRT Viper.
Now along comes the 2014 Ford Shelby GT500.
Before the test, Edmunds wonders aloud if the Corvette can overcome the deficit of 202 horsepower and 166 lb-ft to Ford’s supercar. The quick answer is an overwhelming yes.
The mystery of what happened to Terrance Paul Beghin and his 1982 Corvette 27 years ago appears closer to a solution.
Charlotte County workers found a white Corvette in a canal near Rampard Boulevard and Navigator Road in the Deep Creek area of Punta Gorda, Fla., and it was pulled from the water Wednesday morning.
Like some other well-known tuners and performance shops, Pfadt Race Engineering has been itching to get their hands on the new 2014 Corvette Stingray. Pfadt has big plans for the C7 Stingray with a new line of parts and a performance upgrade package they’re calling the Pfadt P58. The package is expected to boost the LT1 from 460 hp to approximately 580 hp.
But before all that can move forward, they first needed to pick up the car.
