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.

NADA Report: 2014 Corvette Stingray Retains Nearly 85 Percent of MSRP Value

As if the exotic styling, powerhouse performance, and impressive interior weren’t enough to convince you to buy a new Corvette Stingray, here’s another more practical reason.

The 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe 1LT Automatic finished No. 1 for retaining the most value among all-new or heavily revised 2014 Model Year mainstream vehicles.

That’s the word from NADA Used Car Guide analysts in their final vehicle retention value report for 2014.

And it wasn’t even close.

Corvette Museum's Motorsports Park Recognized as Outstanding Facility of the Year

Well that didn’t take long.

The National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park has only officially been open for about four months in 2014, but that was long enough for the racing industry to take notice of the new race track in Bowling Green, KY.

At the Performance Racing Industry’s trade show in Indianapolis, the NCM Motorsports Park was recognized with the “Outstanding Facility of the Year” award which was presented by the the National Speedway Directory and Track Guide.

We think Top Gear made the right call in calling the Corvette Z06 their ‘Muscle Car of the Year’ (even though it’s a sports car, not a muscle car). Check out this beautiful test drive of the Z06 which includes a ride through the Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap.

Top Gear selected the 2015 Corvette as the magazine’s 2015 “Muscle Car of the Year”. The editors said “Go to the outer edge of your personal comfort zone, and the Z06 will meet you there. It’ll trade blows with the best that AMG, BMW, Ferrari or Porsche has to offer, on the trickiest tracks in the world. It’ll make you feel like a million dollars, but costs a fraction of that. America has a new hero.”

Jeremy Clarkson, one of the co-hosts of the BBC’s Top Gear auto show, has turned in his choice for the 2014 Car of the Year and it’s none other than the 2014 Corvette Stingray. We’ve come along way from the days when America’s Sports Car was nothing but a punching bag (or a literal target) for the British auto critic. The choice for the 2014 Car of the Year was announced in the magazine version of Top Gear in their annual awards issue which is out now.
