The defect automotive lawsuit claims that GM is aware that the Corvette engines have excessive valve guide wear leading to engine failure and repairs, despite the company advertising the high quality and durability of the engines.

Corvette Z06 Competing for Road and Track's 2016 Performance Car of the Year

Will the Corvette be able to continue its winning ways in Road & Track’s Performance Car of the Year competition?

The 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 captured the magazine’s first contest in 2013.

To be chosen for the contest, a car had to have significant updates over the previous year’s car (leaving out the BMW M3, Alfa 4C, and Nissan GT-R) and had to be at the top of the performance bracket (leaving out cars like the Mazda Miata). In addition, manufacturers of the Lamborghini Huracan and McLaren 675LT said they didn’t want to compete this year.
