    An interview with Bowling Green Assembly's plant manager Kai Spande has introduced the possibility that the Corvette convertible may not have a chance to roll off the line before the plant has to start making cars for the 2021 model year. Spande said that it's too early to say if the...

    Earlier this week, we showed you the lovechild of a 1960s Cadillac and a 1990s Mercedes-Benz. And the result was a monstrosity the likes of which we haven't seen in a long time. Today, it's the combination of a C2 Corvette and a C6. The result is something we wouldn't mind seeing in our...

    I well remember being in a throng of car journalists on media preview day at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2013 for the reveal of the seventh generation (C7) Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. In the aftermath of the unveil I remember hearing and reading a lot about the dramatic switch to...

    Automotive journalists--and I don't excuse myself from this criticism--have a habit of thinking that if they don't talk, they won't get paid. But sometimes you don't really want to hear what someone is saying. Sometimes you just want to hear the car. Such is the case with the 2020 Corvette...

    As successful in sales as it was long-lasting, there's no shortage of C3 Corvettes on the road. And although it's not the most sought after generation of Vette, as vin #00002, there's good reason to get excited about this particular one. Sold in, of course, 1968, this Corvette Bronze C3 is "the...

    Here's a surprise for you about the new C8 Chevrolet Corvette. It's not just going to be the quickest car for your buck. It's also going to be the fastest. And the fastest one won't be the quickest one. But it will be the cheapest one. Confusing? Yup. But bear with us. It doesn't help that we...

    Chevrolet has announced pricing for three versions of the mid-engine Corvette Stingray. The three trim levels are the 1LT, the 2LT, and, sensibly, the 3LT. Chevrolet bills the 1LT as the car for purists, calling it the "lightest Stingray possible." It comes with Bose 10-speaker audio, 8-way...

    Designer Tom Peters and the team that designed the C8 Corvette considered splitting the new Corvette's rear window but ultimately decided against it, according to a recent report. Speaking to musclecars&trucks.com, Peters says the team asked itself "is there a way to represent that split window...

    When Chevrolet unveiled the C8 Corvette last night, there were a lot of surprises, but the two biggest ones were the 0-60 time and the price. Considered together, Chevrolet's promise that the C8 will start at less than $60,000 and hit 60 mph in less than 3 seconds is wildly impressive. How...

    Chevrolet is finally going to show us the all-new, mid-engined Corvette later this week at a live event in California. Yes, the car actually exists. In anticipation of this reveal, and to build more hype for one of the most hyped-about cars in existence, Chevy is releasing C8 teasers throughout...

    So you know how the C8 Corvette is being delayed because of wiring issues? Well, that might not be the real reason. Or it might only be part of the reason. Hagerty reports that the upcoming mid-engine Vette is so powerful that it's tearing itself in two! Ok, maybe that's a bit of an...

    Yesterday we pretty much found out what the C8 Corvette will look like, and now we know what it'll sound like thanks to a video uploaded by Jalopnik. The video features the same test cars as yesterday running laps around Germany's fearsome Nurburgring and the sound quality it pretty solid so...
