AutoPacific, a market research and consulting firm focused on the automotive industry, is out with their 19th Annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards which are based on surveys of owner’s satisfaction with their new vehicles. For the fourth straight year, the Chevrolet Corvette has won Best in Class for the Sports Car category, and is one of five GM vehicles that was tops in its class.
Last weekend, millions of Americans watched as the USA Women’s Soccer team defeated Japan to win the FIFA World Cup, the first time the team has won the cup since 1999. Shutting down the opposition throughout the tournament was goalie Hope Solo, who recorded five shut-outs and allowed only three goals.
If there’s ever been a priceless Corvette, then the 1960 Chevrolet CERV 1 may be it.
But someone will pay a price, likely an astronomical price, at the upcoming RM Sotheby’s auction in Monterey 2015 set for Aug. 13-15, where the current owner is putting the CERV 1 up for sale. (CERV stands for Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle.)
Two brand new Corvettes were damaged at the Dave White Chevrolet dealership in Sylvania, Ohio after a man suffered a medical seizure and crashed into the cars on Wednesday afternoon.
The report from the ABC News affiliate in Toledo says the man driving the car was exiting a highway when the seizure happened. His wife was in the passenger seat and she quickly grabbed the steering wheel and steered the car through an intersection before crashing head-on into the brand new Corvettes sitting on the dealership’s lot.

The situation with the C7 Corvette Z06’s Nurburgring lap time is quickly becoming a fiasco for Chevrolet.
Autoweek’s rumor yesterday from an anonymous source proclaiming the Z06’s lap time to be 7:08 has supposedly been debunked by another anonymous source from a competing media outlet, Road & Track.
GM is doing it again for an elderly Corvette enthusiast whose stolen Corvette was returned to him last year after being stolen on Jefferson Avenue in Detroit 33 years earlier.
You may remember that George Talley, then 71 years old, didn’t know how he would get his recovered Corvette back to Detroit from Mississippi, where it was finally located by AAA.
Well, GM’s Mark Reuss, executive vice president for GM Product Development, stepped in and offered to have GM ship the car back to George’s home in Michigan.
Ever since Corvette’s Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter said the 2015 Corvette Z06 had completed a timed lap at the famous Nurburgring track in Germany, Corvette fans have been waiting (and waiting) for Chevrolet’s marketing department to release the video of the run. In the meantime, the incredible vacuum of silence has been filled with rumors and speculation about the 650 hp supercar’s time.
Eleven class victories at one venue is most for Corvette Racing team
DETROIT (July 7, 2015) – Corvette Racing has competed on tracks throughout North American and around the world. But no venue has witnessed more of the team’s successes than Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. As a result, it’s no surprise that Corvette Racing relishes a return to the historic circuit just outside Toronto.
