GM to Reduce the Powertrain Warranty on Corvettes by 40,000 Miles in 2016

If you need a good reason to buy a Corvette Stingray or Z06 before the end of the 2015 model year, keep reading because I am going to give you 40,000 reasons why you should buy a 2015 Corvette over the upcoming 2016 model.

Earlier this month, General Motors announced a roll back to the powertrain warranty on all Chevrolet vehicles including the Corvette Stingray and Z06 to 60,000 miles from the 100,000 miles currently offered on 2015 models.

[PICS] Corvette Vanity Plates from the 12 Hours of Sebring Corvette Corral

One of the great things you can do as a Corvette owner is to support the factory Corvette C7.Rs by going to one of the TUDOR United Sports Car races held around the Country. And Chevrolet makes it real easy to go by sponsoring a Corvette Corral at select races where owners can safely park their cars, listen to seminars from Doug Fehan, Harlan Charles and Ron Fellows as well as enjoy the camaraderie that we share with other Corvette owners.

Arriving this weekend at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, we were amazed to see a record number of attendees who parked their cars in the Corvette Corral. From C1s to C7 Z06s, there was a little something for everyone parked under the bright Florida sun.

[VIDEO] Hennessey Puts the 2015 Corvette Z06 with a 7-Speed Manual on the Dyno

Hennessey Performance Engineering recently decided to find out how much the 2015 Z06 convertible’s engine loses between crank horsepower and rear wheel horsepower.

According to their dyno figures, the Z06, with the standard 7-speed transmission, produced 570 RWHP, down 12.4 percent from the crank figure of 650 HP. No word on the decline in torque, but based on other tests, we’d figure that number is virtually identical to the RWHP, in other words, 570 ft-lbs.

Corvette Chief Engineer: Corvette Z06s Accounting for 40 Percent of All Corvette Orders

Last week during an appearance on Autoline After Hours, Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter brought a base Corvette Z06 Convertible into the studio to share while the show was taped. We already talked about Juechter’s denial of a Mid-engine Corvette Zora ZR1 that may or may not be in the works, but the majority of the conversation was centered on the new 2015 Z06.

During the talk, Tadge told the host John McElroy and guests that the Corvette Z06 is currently tracking at 40% of all Corvette orders.

2014 Corvette Stingrays Recalled for Misaligned Fuel Fill Pipe

Chevrolet issued another recall notice in February pertaining to the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The recall affects certain Corvette Stingrays that may have been built with an out-of-position “anti-siphon” grid within the fuel fill pipe. That grid may move over time and become located from slightly deeper in the fuel fill pipe to totally dislodged from the pipe and move to the bottom of the fuel tank.

Dealers are instructed to replace the fuel tank fill pipe and if necessary, inspect the fuel tank for the dislodged anti-siphon grid.

Corvette Z06/Z07 Tires and Brakes Parts Cost More than a Chevy Cruze

A new 2015 Corvette Z06 armed with the Z07 performance package is one of the most potent track weapons available. The Z07 adds carbon ceramic brake rotors for increased stopping power and those wheels are wrapped in sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires.

Anyone tracking these cars on a regular basis will need replacement parts, especially when it comes to two of racings most consumable items behind fuel: tires and brakes.

A user on Jalopnik’s Opposite Lock shared a quote from a Chevrolet dealer’s parts counter. Shockingly, a set of rotors, new Michelin tires and brake pads cost more than a new 2015 Chevrolet Cruze.
