The Chevrolet 2014 Corvette Stingray convertible lowering its top

This year’s Geneva Motor Show seems to be littered with motoring anniversaries from the Porsche 911 to Italdesign Giugiaro. Now it’s the Chevrolet Corvette’s turn as it hits 60 years on the market, and Chevrolet’s commemoration is the 2014 Corvette Stingray. Last month, we looked at the coupé version and now, at Geneva, it’s the turn of the Corvette Stingray convertible.  Read More

Behind its dramatically restyled front fascia, the 2014 Corvette Stingray packs a new 450-hp 6.2-liter V8 engine. Not surprisingly, that engine isn't quite powerful enough for some gear-heads. Well before the new 'Vette makes its way into showrooms later this year, Hennessey Performance is teasing potential buyers with a version that puts out more than double the horsepower.  Read More

The rear of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, which will feature GM's first use of 'smart mater...

Chevrolet is taking some major steps to improve and evolve the Corvette. The automaker is bringing back the beloved Stingray and adding a 6.2L V-8 LT1 engine with over 450 horsepower (335kw). Now, Chevy has revealed its intentions to incorporate heat-activated "smart materials" into the 2014 Corvette.  Read More

2014 Corvette Stingray

You'd have to go back in time a long way to find the very first rumor about the C7 Corvette; the next-generation Corvette has been one of the most anticipated and talked about new car debuts of the past several years. At the Detroit Auto Show, Chevy finally ended the speculation and opened the seventh chapter of the Corvette, a chapter that's driven by a story of past meeting future. Like it or leave it, the new 'Vette is officially here.  Read More

The Corvette LT1 V-8 complete engine

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette is scheduled to hit the market late next year, and Chevy has given us a preview of its brand new engine. The automaker has said that its goal with the 2014 Corvette is to raise the bar in terms of performance engines. It also wanted to focus on fuel economy, while not sacrificing the raw power that Corvette fans expect. It's now been revealed that the vehicle is going to come off assembly lines with a 6.2L V-8 that is able to deliver an estimated 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft (610 Nm) of torque.  Read More

The Gnarboards Trail Rider and Corvette C5 battle it out in a 75-foot drag

When we first took a look at the Gnarboards Trail Rider electric skateboard a couple of months ago, we likened it to a “Ferrari for your feet” due to it boasting a power-to-weight ratio that would put many cars to shame. But rather than a Ferrari, Gnarboards creator Joshua Tulberg has pitted his invention against another vehicle to demonstrate its power and speed – a C5 Corvette.  Read More

A stock Corvette, with a paint job similar to that which the G-Vette will be sporting

For fans of Corvettes, few vehicles could be better than a sexy, slinky ZR1... except, perhaps, a ZR1 with no direct CO2 emissions. That’s what Maryland-based Genovation Cars is in the process of creating with its electric G-Vette. This isn’t simply a matter of just dropping an electric motor into an existing car, however. In keeping with the company’s green philosophy, the custom body panels are being made from carbon fiber and soy-based resin, while the carpet and floor mats will be made from recycled plastic bottles. The one-of-a-kind automobile will serve as a test bed for Genovation’s research into advanced lightweight materials... and you might be able to buy the thing once they’re done with it.  Read More

The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette

There are businesses that let you glaze your own pottery, cook your own steak or pick your own strawberries, but when it comes to the hands-on experience, a new offer from General Motors has them all beat. If you order a 2011 Corvette Z06 or ZR1, you have the option of traveling to GM's Performance Build Center in Wixom, Michigan, and hand-assembling your car’s LS7 or LS9 engine. It’s called the Corvette Engine Build Experience, and is believed to be the first program of its kind (if any readers would like to dispute that claim, please do so). If you don’t like the idea of providing GM with your mechanical expertise for no cost, don’t worry - you’ll have to pay an extra $US5,800 for the privilege.  Read More

Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition

The first of Chevrolet's recently announced 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition coupes will go under the hammer at the Barrett-Jackson in Florida next month. Billed as the "best balanced Corvette yet" on the track, the carbon-flavored Z06 marries the naturally-aspirated Z06 engine with the Brembo carbon ceramic brakes introduced on the 2009 ZR1.  Read More

Corvette ZR1 - 638 hp and 200mph+

April 30, 2008 When the preliminary performance specs for the new 2009 Corvette ZR1 appeared on the radar late last year ahead of its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, predictions were for a supercar producing 620 horses and topping 200mph, making it the most powerful and fastest automobile ever produced by General Motors. Now with the release of the certified power ratings there's no cause for disappointment, in fact it seems that initial predictions were a little underdone. According to Chevrolet, the ZR1's hand-built, supercharged LS9 V-8 engine will produce 638 horsepower (476 kW) and 604 lb.-ft. of torque (819 Nm) - an output of almost 103 horses per liter - and will achieve a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h). On top of that, although fuel economy testing has not yet been completed, engineers remain confident that the ZR1 will be the most fuel-efficient 600-plus-horsepower car on the market.  Read More
