January 2012 Corvette Sales

General Motors issued their sales report and if you haven’t heard the news, it was a pretty dismal month for sales across the board for GM brands.

$10 Corvette Raffle Returns this Week to the NCM

The National Corvette Museum’s Corvette raffles provides the non-profit organization with the necessary funds to carry out their day to day operations.

2012 Corvette ZR1 Runs Fastest Time at Car and Driver's Lightning Lap #6 at VIR

Over the past six years, Car and Driver has brought 115 production cars to Virginia International Raceway (VIR) 4.1 mile Grand West Course. The result is an American-style Nurburgring-like timed lap test called the Lightning Lap. Currently, the 2010 Corvette ZR1 sits 4th fastest on the list with only a Viper ACR and two Moslers that have run faster. We were excited to see how the 2012 Corvette ZR1 tested with the new Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires would compare to its previous lap time and the results do not disappoint.
