If you happen to buy a new Corvette in roughly two years, you can likely thank the previous customers of the seventh-generation Stingray for your improved paint job.

The overwhelming success of the new Corvette, introduced in 2014, no doubt heavily influenced General Motors’ announcement today that it will be investing $439 million at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, most of which will go to a new Corvette paint shop that will include “substantial technology upgrades,” according to GM.

[VIDEO] Watch this Lady-Driven Corvette Z06 Hit the 10s at the Dragstrip


The perception of the Corvette as an old mans car has been out there for a while now but the new C7 Corvette has gone a long way to debunk that. Now, not only are women buying the new Corvettes, but they are taking them to track and breaking stereotypes there as well.

Today’s featured video from CorvetteVideos.TV features a female-owned 2015 Corvette Z06 with a stage 1 aero kit and the new 8-speed automatic. Watch the Laguna Blue Z06 with the vanity plate “SHE WNZ” make multiple passes in the 10s at Gateway Motorsports Park.

[PIC] NFL Colts DE Arthur Jones to Return his New Corvette Stingray to the Dealer

Sometimes it not how much you like a car, but how it fits your lifestyle. Take professional football player Arthur Jones of the Indianapolis Colts for example. The Colts’ defensive end was recently seen pictured next to his red Corvette Stingray Convertible but unfortunately, the car is just a bit too small for the footballer who clocks in at 6-3 and 337 pounds.

In an instagram post he posted on Friday, Jones says he wishes he could fit into the car and hashtagged the post as #bigboyproblems:

Katech Track Attack Engine Package Gives C7 Corvette LT1 Over 650 hp without a Supercharger

If you’re devoted to serious track activities with your C7 Corvette Stingray and are tired of following the supercharged Z06s around, Katech Performance has some good news for you. They have developed what they call their Track Attack Engine Package that will give a normally aspirated LT1 over 650 horsepower without resorting to supercharging or turbocharging. Katech should be familiar to Corvette fans everywhere—they built the engines for Corvette Racing back in the days of the C5.R and the early C6.R. Katech has been building winning racing engines since 1982 and knows a thing or two about high performance.

Jeremy Clarkson Reviews the 2015 Corvette Z06 (and Hates It)

Ah, Jeremy Clarkson. The guy we used to hate because of his biases against America, American cars and the Chevrolet Corvette, who then shocked us with naming the Corvette Stingray his car of the year now appears to be back to his old form. You threw us for a curve last year in your praise of the C7 Corvette Stingray, but seriously, we knew it wouldn’t last.

Now comes your review of the Corvette Z06 in The Sunday Times and I feel like I’ve flashbacked to 2008.
