2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible [w/video]

About 20 seconds, and 30 miles per hour. These are, if not the most heart-thumping statistics you need to know before continuing to read the rest of this review, the most pertinent to get out of the way. What are they? The amount of time it takes, according to our stopwatches, for the power-operated fabric roof to hide itself entirely inside the bodywork of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible, and the maximum speed at which that action can be performed.

    Detroit: Bob Lutz brings Destino, a ZR1-powered Karma, to Detroit
    1358177040

    There's nothing wrong with the Fisker Karma that a honkin' American V8 engine won't fix. At least according to Bob Lutz, it seems. Called the VL Automotive Destino, this machine is the brainchild of industrialist Gilbert Villereal and the aforementioned Lutz, and is intended to compete with such well-regarded performance sedans as the Porsche Panamera and ...

    This is the face of the new Corvette. As was the case with the next 'Vette's hind quarters, the fascia has leaked on the cover of a magazine, in this case, Road & Track. As you can see, a more angular look graces the face of the 2014 Corvette, with a large oblong-hexagon-shaped intake for sucking in as much of the atmosphere as possible, along with ...

    Critics have long taken delight in bashing the Chevrolet Corvette for the sports car's sub-par cabin execution, but the latest teaser for the C7 seems to indicate the next generation machine will bow with much nicer materials.

    Think back to the debut of the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro – a full three years passed between the concept's official debut in 2006 and when the production model launched in 2009, with a whole lot of hype in between. And why would the roll-out of the halo car Corvette be any different? That in mind, we bring you what General Motors is calling ...

    NASCAR driver Tony Stewart is known as "Smoke" to many, and the custom Camaro ZL1 he helped create for SEMA reflects his sometimes mysterious personality. Chevy design manager Dave Ross worked with Stewart to come up with not only the flat red and silver tribal theme, but the custom gray-metallic paint and the red-haloed headlights, as well.

    Is there a more hotly anticipated 2013 Detroit Auto Show debut than the next Corvette? We don't think so, and while we're woefully short on details – powertrain, price, performance – we can at least bask in the glow of a nicely filmed teaser video. The first of many, we imagine. Let's take a minute to dissect what's going on here. We see ...
