Our Week with a Corvette Stingray: A Review

Jun 25, 2015 - 3:47 PM - by NickJ

What can I say about the Stingray that hasn't already been reported on by folks that have been in the industry for the last 3 decades? The print guys have their formula and their matrices that they apply to every single car that they get into the shop. You will read those magazines and will get the same basic story no matter what the cover looks like. I could mimic those stories and regurgitate facts, figures, and talk about skid-pad performance as it relates to the on-board g-meter. I am not going to do that. Being the avid enthusiasts you are, you have already read those stories. What I am going to do is tell you a story about two, regular 'ol enthusiasts (CK, or "cereal killer," and myself) getting to have the key to a 2015 C7 Corvette Convertible for a week.


Just a week or two ago, a shiny white C7 rolls into a parking spot outside our office with its chrome wheels sparkling in the mid-day sun. The porter steps out, and we meet him on the curb. Immediately, we descend on the car, as we have yet to experience the C7 sans the "this is someone else's car" etiquette of car shows and dealerships. The obligatory walk-around and poking and prodding begins while I step inside the office to sign my life away to be one of the care-takers for the week.

Once I am able to slip my backside into the red leather seat, I am transported back a few years and am reminded of an initial experience that solidified my "car guy" status: When I was much younger, my mom was seeing a guy who had a C3 Corvette Stingray. As many of you remember, the C3 was the most radical styling that GM had done in the Corvette line-up to that point. The tall wheel arches elevated like sharp continental ridges at either edge of your field of vision. The center of the hood bulged to make room for that carb and air cleaner atop a wonderful big block V8. Straight ahead of you is the... [Read More]

C8 To Be Called MANTA RAY?

Jun 23, 2015 - 2:27 PM - by elegant
Could the next generation Corvette be a mid-engined additional line complimenting the C7, OR a traditional front-engined StingRay replacement, or a special edition StingRay, and might it be called the Manta Ray?

Based on the fact that GM has just filed for a "Manta Ray" trademark, and that trademarks have to be used, extended or lost within two years of first filing, might the mid-engined new Corvette line might bear the name Manta Ray? Or, will the StingRay have an special edition called the Manta Ray? All is guesswork outside of GM at this time, other than this actual trademark filing just last week.

Looking at the picture of the back end of the 1960's Manta Ray below, easy to see how this could easily morph into a mid- engined Corvette.

Corvette Tops "Most American" By Parts Content

Jun 21, 2015 - 10:36 AM - by elegant
This is not the first time the C7 has earned the distinction of having the highest USA parts content, for it did so three times earlier, including in the separate Kopec parts-content evaluation. Bring this award on over and over!

“Most American”... Corvette and Four Other GM Vehicles Tops on Consumer Reports “Most American” List!

If you looked up the definition of “Made in America” in the dictionary, you might think you’d find a picture of a Chevrolet Corvette.

After all, how much more American of a car is there than the ‘Vette? In this case, the facts would back you up.

According to research by Consumer Reports, the Corvette tied for first place in their listing of the top ten 2015 models with the most American parts.

Seventy-five percent of the Stingray’s parts are American-made, same as four other GM products – the Buick Enclave, Cadillac CTS coupe (though this must be a mistake by Consumer Reports, since Caddy stopped making the coupe in 2014), Chevrolet Traverse, and GMC Acadia.

Interestingly, three Japanese cars also tied for the top spot with those GM products – the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Camry and Sienna. Tied for ninth on the list were the Dodge Viper and Jeep Cherokee at 71 percent.

Of course, in the world economy, no man is an island, so to speak. For example, some would probably be shocked to find out that some Chevy Silverados are assembled in Mexico while others are put together in Indiana and Michigan. On the other hand, the Toyota Tundra is built solely in Texas.

C7.R Le Mans GTLM Win!

Jun 14, 2015 - 8:20 AM - by elegant
Spoiler alert!!!

In qualifying, as we all sadly know, the number # 63 car crashed due to a mechanical failure, and the remaining Corvette C7.R had to face Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche, etc, alone, with one hand tied behind its back.

And how the 24 Hours of LeMans has ended....

The # 64 car driven by Tommy Milner, Oliver Gavin and Jordon Taylor won the GTLE class!!!

HOW SWEET IT IS!

Congratulations Corvette Racing!
