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. Because, of course, when piloting a brand-new Chevy Corvette Convertible for the very first time, there is absolutely no... Read More

    Hagerty has announced its annual list of future classics, the 2014 Hot List. Naturally, these are some of the prettiest, fastest and most entertaining vehicles on sale. There are limits, though. You're not going to see a Ferrari LaFerrari or Rolls-Royce Wraith on this list, because Hagerty only considers vehicles with MSRPs below $100,000. Other ...

    1389112020

    We'll get our first official look at the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (teased above) at next week's Detroit Auto Show. But thanks to a funny little thing called meta data, it appears some initial details about the new coupe have already leaked out. Here's what happened. Chevrolet created a special website for the Z06 reveal, and it's already live on the ...

    We're really quite excited about the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and its Performance Data Recorder – and not just because of its unbridled potential for providing the world with more "dash cam" videos. We love the idea if only because it means we won't necessarily have to fiddle with GoPros while out on track. The new technology, which we first ...

    If the Chevrolet Corvette isn't the first vehicle that comes to mind when you think of technological innovation – there is, after all, something resolutely old-school about even the latest Stingray – it might be time to recalibrate your viewpoint. Announced today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is the new Corvette Performance ...

You had no knowledge of the heavily redesigned, seventh-generation Corvette - it's shapely new body and enthusiast-infuriating rear taillights were as foreign as the Bhagavad Gita recited in ...

    We knew that once Hennessey Performance got its hands on the seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, big things were going to happen. A 200.6-mile-per-hour run on a closed section of Texas' brand-new State Highway 99, was just a shade bigger than what we were expecting. The run was also a test of the new toll road - which Hennessey founder John ...

    Report: Chevy Corvette to get eight-speed automatic transmission
    1386687600

    It used to be that manual transmissions almost invariably had more speeds than their automatic counterparts. A car with a five-speed stick might have a four-speed or even three-speed slushbox, while another might offer the choice between a six-speed manual and a five-speed automatic. But that's quickly changing. These days we're seeing automatic ...

Unlike last year, in which Car and Driver's 10Best list was populated with almost exactly the same vehicles as the year before – the only change between 2012 and 2013 was that the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ twins took the position previously occupied by the Cadillac CTS-V. By contrast, 2014 brings with it several notable additions and ...

Courtesy of our friends at Drive Arabia, we wouldn't expect to see this at the scene of many actual fires. Instead, this is more or less a publicity stunt on wheels, meant to draw attention to the Fire Brigade at ...

Not to say the C3 'Vette couldn't benefit from an interior makeover, but we wondered how the ...

And that's sort of what Maryland-based aftermarket-product maker Quanta is proposing with a hybrid kit for the iconic General Motors sports car, Gizmag reports. In this case, the hybrid ...
