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.

[ACCIDENT] C7 Corvette Z06 Crashes at the Race Track


There is no doubt that the 2015 Corvette Z06 is the most capable performance Corvette that Chevrolet has ever made. But to really experience the full bandwidth of performance available, owners are encouraged to take their car to the track. And there lies the conundrum… While the Corvette Z06 may be ready for the track, sometimes the driver isn’t which is why we have the photos of a Corvette Z06 that went off the track and into the weeds at a recent SCCA event.

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.

[RUMOR] Did the 2015 Corvette Z06 Lap the Nurburgring in 7:08?


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.

June 2015 Corvette Sales


It’s the first of the month and that means it’s time for the monthly Corvette sales report from General Motors. In June 2015, a total of 2,807 Corvettes were sold for a 3.1% increase over the 2,723 Corvettes sold in June 2014. For the Calendar Year to Day (CYTD), a total of 18,307 Corvettes have been delivered and we are running 3.2% ahead of the 17,744 Corvettes sold during the same time period in 2014.

Final 2015 Corvette Production Statistics


The second year of C7 Corvette production ended almost two weeks ago and thanks to our friends at the National Corvette Museum, we already have a breakdown of the final 2015 Corvette production statistics.

For the 2015 model year, Chevrolet build 34,240 Corvettes. Production decreased 8% from the 37,288 Corvette Stingrays built during the C7’s inaugural year, but we’ve been told that the production cycle for the 2014 model year was slightly longer than 2015.

Leading the production was the 2015 Corvette Stingray Coupe. GM built 20,757 Stingray Coupes which accounted for 60.6% of Corvette production. The Z06 Coupe was second with 6,980 built for a 20.4% share. The Corvette Stingray Convertible’s production was 4,830 for 14.1% and finally the Corvette Z06 Convertible total was 1,673 for 4.9%.

Raffle of 2015 C7 Corvette Stingray to Benefit Patty Pollatos Fund


Buying a chance to win a brand new 2015 C7 Corvette Stingray coupe and at the same time helping some folks who have hit a few bumps in their lives seems like a worthwhile investment to us, even if you don’t win. All of the proceeds from the raffle of the Stingray, from Criswell Chevrolet, home of Corvette mega-salesman Mike Furman, will go to the Patty Pollatos Fund, an all-volunteer, non-profit charity in Frederick County, Maryland.
