2015 Corvette Stingray Pricing is Quietly Raised Another $1,000

It was only back in July that we got our hands on the dealer prices for the 2015 Corvette Stingray and those prices showed the base Non-Z51 Coupe starting at $53,000 while the base Non-Z51 Convertible started at $58,000.

Now this may be old news to some, but we learned today that in early August Chevrolet quietly raised the MSRP of the 2015 Corvette Stingray’s four models by $1,000. The new starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price of the base Corvette Stingray Coupe is now $54,000 while the base Corvette Stingray Convertible will start at $59,000. The delivery charge of $995 is not included.

Those guys from Regular Car Reviews are back and this time they review the 2014 Corvette Stingray. There’s a lot to love in the new Stingray and during the video you will see a couple of instances where they are blown away by the new Corvette. But because the C7 Corvette has been “so hyped in every blog”, they decided to take a contrarian view at the end and point out all the faults of the C7, real or imagined.

This isn’t the first time we’ve showcased a Regular Car Reviews video and if you’ve seen one yet, you’re in for a treat. Here’s their videos for the 1979 C3 Corvette review and the 2008 C6 Corvette Review.

Be warned, some content may not be safe for a work environment.

The Corvette C7 represents America’s desire to be taken seriously in the eyes of Europe. This is nothing new. We’ve been doing it since Henry James Ex-Patted his way from coffee house to coffee house trying to capture the perfect Portrait of a Lady. The C7 goes off faster than I do when I refrain from TOUCHING MYSELF for a week. You can’t see out the back because the ass of the car is higher than your head. Plus, this car is so hyped in every blog…so we’ll see.

[PICS] Kerbeck Compares the New 2015 Corvette's Shark Gray to Cyber Gray and Blade Silver

Back in January at the North American International Auto Show, we noticed that Chevy had parked a 2015 Corvette Z06 in the new Shark Gray exterior parked next to a 2014 Corvette Stingray wearing Cyber Gray. Inside Cobo Hall, the difference between the two colors was obvious, but the real test would be how the colors will compare next to each other out in the sun.

Now that 2015 Corvettes are shipping, we’ve got a great comparison of the new 2015 Shark Gray exterior next to a 2014 Corvette Stingray wearing the now defunct Cyber Gray. To further the comparison, a 2015 Corvette Stingray in Blade Silver is also shown. The photos of the three Stingrays come from our good friends at Kerbeck Corvette in Atlantic City.

We’ve been believers in Forgiato’s widebody Corvette Stingrays since they first broke onto the scene at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Since then, we’ve been treated to many different flavors in addition to the Aston Martin Blue Coupe that won SEMA’s Design Award for Best Chevrolet Exterior.

The latest widebody on display was posted on Forgiato’s Facebook page last week and shows a bright yellow Corvette wearing 22-inch Forgiato Lavorato ECL wheels that are colored-matched to the new Stingray.

[PICS] The 2014 Corvettes at Carlisle Show

Another edition of the Corvettes at Carlisle show has come and gone. Despite the in-climate weather, this show remains a must-attend as there is just so much see and do. In fact, I’d say that a day at Corvettes at Carlisle in the falling rain beats a day sitting behind a desk anytime!

At Corvettes at Carlisle, we walked and walked and walked some more. From the swap meet to the sales corral, from the Chevy Engineers tent on the Manufacturer’s Midway with the new Corvette Z06 to sitting up on the hill with friends and looking at all the remarkable Corvettes parked row after row, we saw it all.

And thanks to our camera, you can catch a glimpse of one of America’s premiere Corvette shows in the gallery below.
