Professional golfer Bubba Watson has joined the ranks of Corvette owners after his wife gave him an Arctic White Corvette Stingray for Christmas. We’re shouting out some kudos to Mrs. Watson for picking out a great C7 Stingray Z51 Coupe for her husband. I have forwarded the story to my wife and suggest you guys do the same with your spouses.
Proving that the Corvette Stingray is a car for all kinds of weather, Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles drove his 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible to work this morning.
Harlan perfectly summed up the spirit of Corvette enthusiasts who drive their Corvettes in all kinds of weather with this caption:
This Torch Red Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe has seen better days.
Spotted at a car dealership in Milwaukee, the crashed Stingray shows extensive damage to the front end of the car.
Some dealers are offering $2,000 discounts on non-Z51 Stingrays.
But we haven’t heard of any discounts on Z51s – until now.
Of course, as usual, there is a catch.
A boost from Hennessey Performance proved to be enough for a 2014 Corvette Stingray to crack the 200mph barrier for the first time on Dec. 11.
The Stingray had been upgraded with a Hennessey HPE600 system that boosts the car’s horsepower to 600 from the factory 460, as well as a Nitrous Express 100-hp nitrous oxide system.
Add yet another win for the popular 2014 Corvette Stingray.
This time, it was the readers of Autoguide.com who voted the seventh-generation Corvette as the Reader’s Choice Car of the Year for 2014.

While attending an open track session at Sebring International Raceway on Saturday, I had the opportunity to ride with Larry who was one of the instructors for Chin Motorsports, the organization which hosted the event. Larry was very popular this weekend as he was driving an Arctic White 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe.
The odds are getting better with each passing day that the new Corvette Stingray could be named the 2014 North American Car of the Year.
In July, the Stingray was one of 47 vehicles (including nine from General Motors) to be nominated as finalists for 2014 North American Car and Truck/SUV of the Year.
In October, that early list was narrowed to 24 vehicles, six of them made by GM.
