Could it be that the new Corvette Stingray is already putting a major hurt on one of its competitors on the salesroom floor?
While customers may have to wait up to six months for the honor of putting the 2014 Corvette in their garage, they could head to their favorite SRT dealer right now and pick up a brand new Viper. In fact, some 565 of them are currently available across the nation.
