It’s the first of the month and today General Motors reported the sales report from August 2015.

[PICS] XO Verona Offers Affordable Concave Wheels For the C7 Corvette Stingray

It’s been a little while since we’ve browsed custom wheels for the Corvette so when I saw this C7 Corvette Stingray in Arctic White set up with custom Wheels by XO, I wanted to take a closer look.

And I’m glad I did. Not only do the XO Verona Wheels look great in Matte Brushed Silver against the Arctic White Corvette Stingray, I found the price to be surprisingly affordable.

[VIDEO] Kelley Blue Book's Reviews the Hot Corvette Z06

Kelley Blue Book is out with their review of the 2015 Corvette Z06 and the results are mixed. Actually, most of the review is very good news for Chevrolet as the car gets put through its paces and seems to deliver in every way. But at the end, we hear the overheating problem has reared its ugly head on what looks to be a mild 80 degree day in California.

[VIDEO] Wall Street Journal Reporter Tests Apple CarPlay in 2016 Corvette Stingray

Joanna Stern of The Wall Street Journal recently got one of those dream assignments for a reporter: driving a 2016 Corvette Stingray convertible for a week ostensibly to see how good the new Apple CarPlay system works.

The Stingray, you may recall, is one of the first cars to get Apple’s new in-dash software, and while it and Siri still have some growing up to do, Stern overall seemed pleased.

[PICS] Here is the New Motorsports Wheel for the 2016 Corvette Stingray

One of the new wheel options available on the 2016 Corvette Stingray is called the “Motorsports” wheel and it’s available on the new Twilight Blue and Spice Red Design Packages as well as through the Genuine Corvette Accessories catalog.

The Motorsports Wheel made its debut at the Bash back in April, but only in the Corvette’s presentation of What’s New for the 2016 Corvette seminar.

Thanks to our friend Rick “Corvette” Conti from Ohio’s Coughlin Chevrolet, we are finally able to check out the new wheels on a Stingray.

It was back in May that we published one of our most popular stories so far in 2015. That story featured photos of Mary Barra’s 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant. Since then, we’ve been wondering when we would actually see General Motors’ CEO in the car and yesterday our prayers were finally answered.

Ms. Barra posted a photo of herself Saturday morning in the Black Z06 convertible which she’s nicknamed “The Beast” and then she joined 1.5 million automotive fans as she headed out for Saturday’s Woodward Dream Cruise.

Chevy Says You Should Change Your Corvette Z06's Oil After First 500 Miles

Chevrolet’s Corvette Z06 is a technological masterpiece when it comes to spinning fast laps on a track, but there does seem to be a not so positive narrative emerging about the LT4s inability to keep those track laps going without overheating or worse, having the engine granading itself.

We’ve told the tale of a Corvette Forum user named ‘lawdogg149’ whose Corvette Z06’s engine blew up with just 891 miles on the odometer while another Forum owners says his blew up with only 6 miles on it. Most recently, Fox New Reporter Gary Gastelu ended his track day early after dropping oil and “some bits and pieces” on the track.
