We’ve been telling you for a long time that the new mid-engine Corvette is one hot automobile.

Of course, we were referring to its ranking as the fastest-selling vehicle in America for several months running.

Now, though, this black 2021 Stingray is one hot automobile in another way: the Detroit Regional Communication Center received a call from OnStar at 10:10 a.m. today (July 15) reporting it stolen with no license plate from a dealer lot in Novi, Michigan, a northern suburb of Detroit.

On the bright side, the car was quickly recovered, but not before a high-speed chase ended with the Corvette badly damaged in a crash.

With OnStar providing updates on the car’s location, Michigan State Police were able to locate it near the intersection of Gratiot Avenue and Outer Drive in Detroit at 10:35 a.m.

After turning onto the I-75 Service Drive from Warren Avenue, the suspects sideswiped a van, bounced off it, and then crashed into several parked vehicles on Chrysler Avenue. Video from a local news crew shows the Corvette suffered major damage to the passenger side front, with the front tire resting on the asphalt several feet away.

Two people exited the car after the crash and fled on foot, but they were quickly apprehended by MSP and Detroit police officers and taken to Detroit Detention Center.

Police said no one was injured in the incident.

  1. Not the way you want to see a C8 make the news! It’s unfortunate but it’s becoming more and more common these days.

  2. They stole from the dealership. I was wondering too how did they started also; but now that I thing of it they keys could have been stolen too. Most of the time they are not to from the car and they do have a unique shape key fob.

  3. They are Black how shocking!!! Must have came from San Francisco where its legal to steal.

  4. Strange that On Star didn’t simply shut the engine down when they knew it had been stolen?
