C7 Styling To Become Chevy's Design Cues!

Dec 15, 2014 - 3:12 PM - by elegant
According to GM Vice President and Chief Global Stylist, Ed Welburn, the C7 Corvette design cues will be seen at least in subtle form in Chevy's entire performance lineup, and even perhaps in the 2016 Volt.

Despite the conservative ECU that limits the 2015 Corvette Z06’s power delivery and the few recalls the C7 Corvette Stingray was subjected to in the current year, the Vette is a gorgeous sportscar to say the least. And apparently, its styling cues will be adopted by Chevrolet future lineup of models.

Attachment 18338

Before we hopped in the 2014 Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray Z51 to see how fast it is and how it handles, we were mesmerized by the way the seventh-gen is looking in the flesh. It’s downright gorgeous thanks to its long, sculpted hood, wide radiator grille, LED daytime running lights and modern rear fascia.

Trust us - it’s not the LT1/LT4’s exhaust noise that will attract your attention on the street, but the silhouette and small details designers bestowed upon the C7 Corvette Stingray. And good gracious - a recent report published by AutomotiveNews informs that the Vette’s jaw-dropping styling will find its way on the next crop of cars wearing the golden bowtie.

Speaking to the aforementioned publication, GM global design boss Ed Welburn declared: "As [the next-gen] Malibu and Cruze and Volt come to market, you'll be able to see a subtle link between some of the form vocabulary for all of them and

Z06 A8 Orders Moving: Finally!

Dec 11, 2014 - 7:54 AM - by elegant
Just heard from the ever-productive Mike Furman at Criswell Chevrolet, that he placed a large batch of Z06 A8 automatic transmission orders. Roughly 3/4's of the Z06 orders he was allocated, and entered today, were for the A8.

Nationwide, GM had 628 Z06 A8 allocations they offered to their dealers.

Unlike previous-to-today, when dealers were able to place such A8 orders but they "went nowhere," remaining at 1100 status indefinitely, today's orders were matched with specific allocations for the eight speed-auto Z06 transmission. The A8 is rated at 737 foot pounds of torque.

Z06 orders entered today for the A8, for those dealers with allocation, will be status 2000 within this six day consensus, maybe even status 3000 by next Wednesday.

LT1: Another Award!

Dec 10, 2014 - 2:07 PM - by elegant
Wards just rated the LT1 as a current "TOP 10 BEST 2015 Engine." Sound familiar? The LT1 won this identical award one year ago. The LT1 was rated against 36 other competitors from 12 different engine manufacturers.

WardsAuto reviewed 37 engines and propulsion systems from 12 manufacturers in this year’s competition, which looked at power, fuel efficiency, new technology and refinement and compared the attributes with data for similar engines.

“This recognition is another step in earning customers for life,” said Dan Nicholson, vice president, GM Global Powertrain. Having the WardsAuto experts choose the LT1 as one of the best in the industry two years in a row is proof of what this Powertrain team can deliver – uncompromised performance, durability and efficiency that helps make the Stingray one of the best sports cars in the world today.”

The LT1 Small Block technologies contribute to making the new Corvette the quickest, most powerful and most fuel-efficient standard Corvette ever. The engine delivers an SAE-certified 460 horsepower, helping propel the car from 0-60 in 3.8 seconds and a quarter mile in 12 seconds while offering EPA-estimated 29 mpg highway with an 8-speed automatic or 7-speed manual transmission.

“The 6.2L LT1 V-8 is the heart and soul of the seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette, and it proudly upholds the 60-year legacy of small-block engines from General Motors,” said Tom Murphy, executive editor of WardsAuto World digital magazine. “This one's been re-engineered from head

StingRay = 2nd Highest Owner Satisfaction

Dec 05, 2014 - 12:15 PM - by elegant
Another recognition of the StingRay, that it's owner are 95% happy with their purchase, so much so that having what they have already experienced , they would buy another StingRay, second only to the Tesla S of all vehicles purchased. Very nice.

In what can only be described as “thoroughly un-shocking,” Consumer Reports compiled data from their annual customer satisfaction survey and found that the Chevrolet Corvette C7 nearly tops the list in terms of owner contentment.

The survey essentially asks participants whether, if they could go back, they would purchase their own car over again. The Stingray came in second place on the survey, according to Autoblog, with 95 percent of current owners confirming that indeed, they would make the same choice.

But really, is it all that surprising? The Stingray has drawn no shortage of journalistic praise since its introduction for the 2014 model year (including from us), and where the average (read: ho-hum) production car from one manufacturer might share 99 percent of its genes with a model from a rival, cars for the enthusiast are much less faceless and interchangeable. One buys a Corvette precisely because it is a Corvette.

So which car beat the Corvette Stingray for the number one spot in the opinions of the consumers? The Tesla Model S, with a 98 percent approval rating. Ah, well, better luck next year.

Outrageous Z06 = 617 RWTQ!

Dec 04, 2014 - 3:21 PM - by elegant
We have been in awe of a car costing $78,000 to have 650 HP/650 TQ, especially when the only other 2015 production sports cars which have more torque than that (Porsche 918, McLaren P1, and Ferrari LaFerari) average $1,105,000. We just now received the first dyno measured Z06 performance numbers and they are outstanding!

While we all know that Dyno numbers change from one Dyno to the next, and that there needs to be weather, altitude and corrective numbers applied, how does 587 RHWP and 617 RWTQ sound to you?. Thank you Vengeance Racing for providing us these staggering results!

Love Z06 Shipping Rumors, But...

Dec 01, 2014 - 3:15 PM - by elegant
LOVE Z06 shipping facts even more! Nothing better than a Media.GM press release that they started shipping Z06 this past Saturday, and that they willbe in some customers' hands in the next few days. This marks the third C7 model in which GM has exceeded its earlier publicized model customer delivery timetable (previously exceeding it for the StingRay coupe and the StingRay convertible).

Bowling Green Plant Information
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Chevrolet is now shipping the all-new 2015 Corvette Z06 coupe from Bowling Green Assembly and some early customers could receive the much-anticipated supercar later this week.

“It has been an incredible opportunity to work on Chevy’s most capable model,” said Jeff Lamarche, plant manager of General Motors’ Bowling Green Assembly plant, “It truly is an amazing car, and we’re thrilled to get them into the hands of our eager customers.”

The new Corvette Z06 offers the most choice for customers in the model’s history. It is the first Z06 to offer an available eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission and, thanks to a stronger aluminum frame, a removable roof panel. In addition, it is the first time since 1963 that the Z06 is available as a convertible – which will arrive in early 2015.

The new LT4 supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine is SAE-certified at 650 horsepower (485 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 650 lb-ft of torque (881 Nm) at 3,600 rpm – making the 2015 Corvette Z06 the most powerful production car ever from General Motors and one of the most powerful production cars available in the
