'18 ZR1 Production Version Spotted

Nov 28, 2016 - 7:29 PM - by elegant
Just a small amount of minor camo left on this alleged 2018 ZR1 production ready version. Thank you AutoGuide for the pictures and information!

Aerodynamic enhancements contribute the biggest visual change to the ZR1 thanks to a new large hood, more air vents, a new front fascia, a new front splitter and even small vertical winglets attached to either end of the splitter.

A massive wing in the rear and bigger rocker panels complete the package, all of which should help this Corvette stick to the track. Previous ZR1 prototypes were seen testing with blue brake calipers, a signature element of older ZR1s, and those same blue calipers can be seen on the rear end of this car.

Power for the new ZR1 is still a mystery, though it is expected to be over 700 horsepower. A supercharged 6.2-liter V8 could be called into service for the ZR1, while a twin-turbo V8 is also reportedly under development at GM

The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport is continuing to impress owners and automotive journalists alike since it began production this summer. Now, as automotive awards season is here, we are seeing the Grand Sport continue the tradition of C7 models gathering up trophies first started by the Stingray in 2014 and then the Z06 in 2015.

Car and Driver is the latest to recognize the Grand Sport and the magazine has named the sports car to its 2017 10Best Cars list, the third time in four years that a C7 model was selected to the prestigious list of the best automobiles for sale in America (under $80,000).

Apparently, the staff at Car and Driver was divided over the decision to add the Grand Sport to the 10Best Cars List or go with Ford’s Mustang Shelby GT350. Ultimately, both cars had the votes to land them on the list.

The common reasoning from the editors on whether the Grand Sport should not be on the list isn’t because its lacking performance akin to its big brother, the supercharged 650-horsepower Corvette Z06. None of the editors claim the Grand Sport needed more power. It was the opposite, that the Grand Sport was too much performance for casual road driving, a statement that many Grand Sport owners will probably laugh at given the fact that its precisely why many opt for the Grand Sport model over the Stingray or spending an additional $15,000 for the Z06.

Those in support of the Grand Sport talked about Chevy’s 460-horsepower naturally aspirated small-block V8 that powers the

The 2017 C7 Corvette Grand Sport has received a lot of love, with many calling it the greatest C7 Corvette variant yet. By combining the cornering and aerodynamic capability of the C7 Corvette Z06 and the naturally-aspirated power from the C7 Corvette Stingray, the Grand Sport represents the best of both worlds.

Deservingly, AutoGuide has named the C7 Corvette Grand Sport its Reader’s Choice Sports Car of the Year. This follows the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, which was named the publication’s green car of the year.

“For all its on-track accoutrement, the Grand Sport proves an excellent accomplice on the road,” AutoGuide.com‘s Dan Ilika said. “Spin the drive mode selector out of Track and into Sport or Touring, and the Grand Sport transforms into a grand tourer, proving comfortable enough for weekends away while still offering a plenty of performance chops.”

Corvette Sales Still Doing Okay

Nov 07, 2016 - 8:39 PM - by elegant
While clearly we are in year four of the C7 generation, and paralleling some previous generations in trending downward after the initial pent-up-demand was satiated, Corvette sales are not in the gutter as some are portraying.

While down 12% from a year ago, still moving forward at an annual clip of over 30,000 units, and IMO after all the typical end of year further discounts, coupled with interim GM incentives, I still think we are working on a 35,000 unit year.

Let's us put this in context to what Tadge shared a little over a year ago at a dealership meeting in Tennessee, that the break even point remains at half of last year sales, e.g., around 17,500 units per year. So while dealers' margins will be continually squeezed to keep up their allocations for current gen speciality product (such as GS CE's and subsequent), and certainly to even have a chance to quality for the 2019 MY limited annual run of the C8's M-E's, GM is continually choosing to run BGA on an overtime basis.

Thanks to CorvetteBlogger, we have these October Corvette sales hard numbers from GM.

For the calendar month to date (January-October), a total of 25,345 Corvettes have been sold which is lagging -12.4 percent from the 28,924 Corvettes sold during the same period last year.

October’s sales numbers were no doubt buoyed by the return of the 2017 Corvette Z06 to the production line. Between the Grand Sport and the re-engineered Corvette Z06 with its

2016 C7 now makes Consumer Reports "Recommended" list

Oct 28, 2016 - 1:19 PM - by meyerweb
Real estate is limited on Consumer Reports‘ “Recommended” list. However, the 2016 C7 Corvette made the cut, along with the two other Chevrolets.
The C7 Corvette was named to the list for its much-improved reliability, after gathering data from the latest Automotive Reliability Survey results. For what it’s worth, no other sports cars are listed by CR on the list, meaning the Corvette has carved some territory all its own.
The 2016 Corvette is joined by the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro as recommended, and the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze, which ousted the 10th-generation Honda Civic for the compact car spot. The 2017 Cadillac XT5 also made the cut for the reliability list.

Frankly, I'm not sure there's that much difference in reliability between 2015 and 16. The sample sizes are small enough that just a few more, or fewer, people reporting problems can shift the C7 one way or the other. Still good news, though.
