Corvette Chief Engineer Denies Plans for a Mid Engine Corvette Zora ZR1

Tadge Juechter was John McElroy’s guest on Autoline After Hours for Thursday, March 12, where the Corvette Chief Engineer spoke about the Z06 and the differences between the various Z06 packages available. McElroy and Juechter were also joined by Todd Lassa, Executive Editor of Automobile magazine and Gary Vasilash, from Automotive Design & Production.

It was interesting listening to Tadge’s response to several questions about the Corvette, but perhaps none was as interesting and important as his denial that a mid engine Corvette was in the brand’s immediate future.

[VIDEO] Man Lets a Homeless Guy Drive His Corvette Stingray

Here’s a video that’s sure to make you think about lucky you’ve got it.

A young man named Drey tells us that he and his friend Vic like to make videos and share them on the Internet. “We just like to entertain, have fun, and like to film the dumb/funny things we do,” they say on their website.

In the past, they’ve done some pretty crazy things, like the time Drey challenged beautiful girls to a game of “Rock, Paper, Scissors” with the payoff getting a kiss from the lady if he wins or getting Tasered by her if he loses! That’s some high stakes.

But in this video, Drey and Vic are not that wild and crazy. They are just out to help their fellow man and in the process they manage to touch the hearts of many of their viewers, at least the less skeptical ones.

[RUMOR] Is Velocity Yellow on the Way Out for the 2016 Corvette?

It’s about this time of year that we starting digging around to see what the Corvette team may have in store for Corvette enthusiasts for the 2016 Corvette Stingray and Z06. The Corvette Museum’s Bash Event is just over a month a way and that’s when we find out all the changes that will be coming on the next model year Corvette.

This year, the chatter seems to be at an all time low which means either that the team has clammed up or there just won’t be many significant changes to the C7s Corvettes as they enter the third year of production.

But that doesn’t mean changes aren’t afoot. Today’s Constraint Report has a key color that’s only available on 10% of the orders during the target production week of April 13th.

Corvette Forum user “sdtoothdoc” was pretty excited to finally be receiving his new eight-speed automatic Corvette Z06 last week, but that excitement has been tempered after he noticed a series cracks on his high performance Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires.

In the C7 Z06 forum, the new Z06 owner posts:

“Hey guys…my A8 Z finally got here in San Diego and took her home a few miles away. As suspected, all 4 tires have cracks like Dennis’s from Las Vegas. When at the dealer, they said that 4 other Stingrays all have the same cracks in the tires. “

Well, needless to say, the program has been a smashing success. In fact, today the Museum celebrated quite a milestone – welcoming their 10,000th participant in the Museum delivery program!
