    Everything is coming up roses for the award-winning Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, as new data from the North American Dealers Association Used Car Guide, dissected by GM Authority, reveals that America's sports car is handily outselling two of its more expensive rivals.

    Automakers trademark names all the time, whether they want to protect some part of their past or if they are considering a model even far in the future. But occasionally a trademark pops up that is much more enticing than the rest. For example, General Motors recently reserved the name Zora for "motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles," according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

    The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has already established itself as a legitimate successor to the crown with fantastic performance and dynamic looks. But it's a year old now, and that means it's time for some subtle tweaks to the mix. Pricing information for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette isn't available yet, but the order guide with all the tasty new details has now leaked online. Unsurprisingly, mechanical changes are few, but for buyers looking for a dash more style, there are some exciting option

    UAW members have voted nearly unanimously in favor of authorizing a strike at the General Motors factory in Bowling Green, KY, home of the Chevrolet Corvette. As we explained yesterday, though, just because the plants 800 workers have authorized a walkout doesn't mean a strike is a sure thing.

    UPDATE: Here's the official statement on the Bowling Green strike authorization, from Region 8 Director Gary Casteel: "The strike authorization vote at the Corvette plant is over local union issues. A strike authorization vote is simply a vote to get membership approval if a strike is deemed necessary. The strike authorization vote is the first of several steps that have to be taken before a strike can happen."

    Christmas has come a year early - and by "Christmas" we mean availability of the eight-speed automatic transmission in the 2015 Corvette Stingray; it was was suspected that the General Motors 8L90 gearbox first announced for the Corvette Z06 might not make it into the standard C7 until 2016. The eight-speed automatic with a torque converter has been retuned for the lighter torque load of the C7, but it's built on the same bones as the equipment that goes in the Z06.

    The 2014 New York Auto Show is just around the corner, and today, we've learned that Chevrolet will have three major debuts in the Big Apple. According to the automaker, Chevy will be bringing "a new variant of the seventh-generation Corvette" to the show, as well as "an important new addition to our small-vehicle lineup" along with an updated 2015 Cruze.

    General Motors has established another movie tie-up, and this one doesn't involve explosions and robots - it involves explosions and superheroes. That's right, Chevrolet is providing a car for a character in the upcoming Marvel movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

    There is still no official confirmation from Chevrolet about an eight-speed automatic transmission making its way into the C7 Corvette Stingray, but the Corvette's chief engineer Tadge Juechter seemed to focus on when – not if – the new gearbox would be ready. In a conversation with Auto Guide, Juechter suggested that we might not see the new transmission until 2016 as other Corvette projects continued to be developed.

    In this latest video from Drive, Chris Harris asks straight away, "Can you still compare a base Corvette to a Porsche Carerra?" That's an particularly interesting question in this film, as the 911 in question is a 400-horsepower Carrera S model that's been fitted with $60,000 in options. Base price of a Corvette Stingray? $51,995. Harris' tester features an automatic and some other goodies that push it right up to that $60,000 range. So yes, the options on the Porsche cost as much as this entire

    As is tradition, the first press day of the 2014 Detroit Auto Show has been kicked off with the announcement of the 2014 North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year winners. And for the new year, top honors go to go the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and Silverado – a sweep for the Bowtie brand.

    Chevrolet just introduced its nifty Performance Data Recorder at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show that will show up in production form later this year on the 2015 Corvette Stingray. For the time being, this Cosworth-developed camera and telematics package will be exclusive to the Corvette, but Motor Trend is reporting that it could well show up in new cars and electronics stores in the not-too-distant future.

    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.

    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 told you about yesterday, fits the Stingray with a 720p video camera, a microphone and all manner of GPS doodads to record your progress as yo

    The new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has picked up another buff book accolade after capturing Road and Track's Performance Car of the Year award. The seventh-generation of America's sports car (sorry Viper, Mustang, et al.) has been named Automobile Magazine's Automobile of the Year.

    Open Up And Say 'Aahhh!'

    The last time your humble narrator found himself driving a Corvette, someone saluted. It happened last fall in a 2013 427 Collector Edition Convertible, white with silver stripes, and the unexpected gesture of respect came courtesy of one of America's finest servicemen in khaki fatigues: a UPS driver. He stood up in the open doorway of his step van while opposing the sixth-generation Corvette at a stoplight, spontaneously presenting the stern-faced, clipped salutation of a veteran. Icons demand
