Last year Edmunds.com bought a 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe to use as a long-term test vehicle and we’ve been following some of the car’s tests on their twitter feed. Recently, Edmunds staff drove the Corvette to Detroit for the North American International Auto Show and on the way encountered a huge snow storm in the Colorado mountains.
Don’t want to wait for the awe-inspiring 2015 Corvette Z06 to arrive in dealer showrooms next year?
Then Supervettes has the answer for you.

New Chevrolet GT race cars display competitive balance in 2014 opener
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 26, 2014) – In its return to the Rolex 24 At Daytona, Corvette Racing experienced the highs and lows of the twice-around-the-clock endurance classic. In their competitive debut, both of the team’s Chevrolet Corvette C7.Rs led the opening round of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship. The new racing Corvette showed promise with impressive speed and economy ahead of its full-season campaign in North America’s new sports car racing championship.
A love affair with 1957 Corvettes has stirred the heart of Bob Drews since the 1960s.
That’s when he first felt the passion of the ’57 that belonged to a neighbor who eventually let Drews help him in the pits when he was racing the car.
You know the Corvette Z06, any red blooded auto enthusiast does! This head turning, track dominating, ultra-performance sports car has inspired both racers and the everyday Corvette lover to add a little more excitement to their lives. The unique features of the 2015 Z06 are grabbing headlines and causing many of us to check how much equity we have in our house, and it’s not even on sale yet.
However, the new Z06 isn’t the only one that’s ever made waves in the auto industry — well actually, every time a Z06 has rolled off an assembly line, it’s been a game changer in the industry. We could talk about the Z06 all day long (and what a great day that would be), but we’d rather show you the distinctions of this glorious automobile with this awesome infographic.
It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Today’s selection is a vintage Chevrolet ad celebrating the 1956 Corvette that won its class at the 1956 12 Hours of Sebring. This same Corvette, dubbed “The Real McCoy” will be auctioned Saturday afternoon at Mecum’s Kissimmee auction.
Time for another SAVE THE STINGRAY’s post.
No, I don’t think this will buff out.
Pratt and Miller posted this video earlier in the week that shows what it took to design and build the Corvette C7.R race car. The Corvette will make its racing debut this Saturday when it takes the field for the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship at the 24 Hours of Daytona.
The 2015 Corvette Z06 made its debut last week at the North American International Auto Show and one of the exciting new features on the new super car is that this will be the first Corvette Z06 with a removable roof panel. But that hasn’t stopped rumors of a full-on convertible Z06.
A Milan, Italy based graphic design shop named Hansen ART took that idea and created this beautiful rendering of what a Corvette Z06 convertible might look like.
