The 2014 Corvette Stingray continues to rake in the awards with the new C7 picking up two new honors from automotive publications in the Middle East. The new C7 has won the prestigious 2013 Sports Car of the Year from Sport Auto and Car Bazar and the Muscle Car of the Year from Car and Driver.

I know we just showed a video from Chevrolet earlier this week featuring Jay Leno and Rick Hendrick talking about the new 2014 Corvette Stingray, but this video from Jay Leno’s Garage features more of the Corvette Caravan from Monterey to Pebble Beach led by Leno and GM’s Global Design Chief Ed Welburn.
Along the way, Jay talks about his love of manual transmission cars and when he pulls onto the greens at The Quail in Pebble Beach, he remarks “Get that foreign crap out of here.”

The 2014 Corvette Stingray made its first visit to the Southeast United States this weekend where it was on display at the Amelia Island Concours D’Elegance.

Following the invite-only reveal last Sunday night, we attended Corvette’s public Press Conference debut the following morning at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

Each week the Autoline TV program and its host, John McElroy, take an in-depth look at various topics in the ever-changing auto industry.

Included in the discussion is a rare behind the scenes tour of the GM Design Studio featuring cameos by the Corvette Sting Ray racer, as well as the Mako Shark and Manta Ray Concepts.
Another week, another round of rumors about the development of the next generation C7 Corvette. GM Inside News is saying that the C7 will be an evolution (not revolution) of design from the C6, and that we are to expect a more European-looking design. Not breaking news so far, they did say they were able to confirm that the split rear window will not be on the next-gen Corvette.
