    Take a quick look at the ad for this Canadian Corvette and it looks like a pretty clean example of a C5. You might even look at the year in the ad and assume it's just the usual classified typo, but then you see the line that bisects the front fender. That ain't right. Wait a second, that hatch...

    If you're hoping to watch a base (or near enough) Corvette outperform a top-of-the-line Mustang, I'm afraid you'll be disappointed. 760 hp and the full might of Ford's pony car division do, in fact, make a pretty quick car. But it's a testament to Chevy's engineers that the Corvette can hang...

    It's time for another Retro Review from MotorWeek and this time the featured car is the 1989 Corvette L98, which doesn't feel quite as retro as you might expect. As MotorWeek put it, this was the Corvette to get to soften the blow of missing out on the ZR1. Powered by the 5.7-liter V8, the L98...

    Production of the C8 Corvette will accelerate thanks to a second shift on the line. With that, customers may start receiving their Corvettes sooner than expected. The second shift started on August 31, according to reports, and has, predictably, sped up production. Chevrolet was building 95...

    Owners of the newly mid-engined Chevrolet Corvette might notice a new message greeting them this week, now that a solution to a recent recall concerning the 2020 C8 'Vette's "frunk" appears to be underway.

    Video footage of a camouflaged C8 Corvette has been released by ***********.com showing what sounds like a flat-plane crank V8 revving. The video shows a car on the street, so it's hard to know exactly what it has under the hood, but rumors have long persisted that a higher-performance 'Vette...

    Love the mid-engined Corvette but can't really afford it? Good news, you may be able to get one for the low, low price of $200. That's because the National Corvette Museum is raffling it off.

    When is a continuation car not a continuation? Difficult to say, really, but I'm not sure this Corvette counts. It's still gorgeous and interesting, though. The trick to a legitimate continuation car, I think, is restraint. You see, like those Astons and Bentleys that use factory blueprints...
