AAA Finds Top Tier gasoline worth while

Sep 25, 2016 - 12:49 PM - by meyerweb
AAA: Not All Gasoline Created Equal | AAA NewsRoom


“AAA was surprised to learn the extent to which detergent additives impact gasoline quality,” revealed John Nielsen, AAA’s managing director of Automotive Engineering and Repair. “As advertised, tested TOP TIER gasolines kept engines remarkably cleaner than other fuels we tested."

“When it comes to selecting a gasoline, automakers got it right – TOP TIER gasoline performs best,” continued Nielsen. “By selecting a quality gasoline, drivers can minimize engine deposits, increase vehicle performance and improve fuel economy.”

One Week with a 2016 Convertible Z51

Sep 20, 2016 - 9:39 PM - by meyerweb
One Week With: 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Z51 | Automobile Magazine

In summary:

Driving a Z51 Corvette in the open air—especially in the warm, salt-scented evening breezes along the sparkling Pacific—is a powerful affirmation of what being an auto enthusiast is all about. You’re in tune with the road and a bewitching machine, yet you’re equally attuned to the earth—the gauzy heaviness of the ocean air, the coolness setting in with the fading sun. Another upshift, another crack from the V-8’s exhaust, and you press on into the dusk, knowing that right now, right here, you wouldn’t trade driving this Corvette Convertible for anything.

Grand Sport Collector Edition Info Announced

Sep 20, 2016 - 2:02 PM - by elegant
Thanks to Mike Furman (Mike@CorvetteFurman), we have learned a whole bunch of info about the GS Collector Edition. Most importantly, only 850 available nationwide, though Mike is getting a good amount of those. But even a top, TOP Corvette allocation dealer such as Criswell, only has a few slots available but not yet sold, e.g., just three remaining for purchase at Criswell.

Here are a lot more details about the Collector Edition thanks to our friend Keith at CorvetteBlogger:

When Chevrolet first unveiled the new 2017 Corvette Grand Sport in Geneva, it was the 2017 Grand Sport Collector Edition in the new Watkins Glen Gray with Tension Blue Hash Marks and Interior. The new model caused quite a splash overseas and at home especially when it was learned that only 1,000 Collector Editions would be offered.

Chevrolet has held back production of the Collector Edition until after the regular Grand Sport launch, but the good news is that they are now sending order information and allocation numbers to dealers this week.

From the new information, we have learned that 850 of the 1,000 Collector Editions will be offered to US customers while the rest will be exported to foreign markets.

Corvette Grand Sport, Camaro 1LE Shine in Car & Driver Lightning Lap

While the new Corvette Grand Sport and Camaro 1LE didn't turn in the quickest laps at the 2016 Car & Driver Lightning Lap trials, all three of the high performance Chevrolet products turned in remarkable lap times - with the Camaro V6 1LE being the quickest ever in the LL1 class. Patrick Rall reports for TorqueNews.com in this original story.

The folks at Car & Driver have published the results of their 2016 Lightning Lap tests at Virginia International Raceway and among the most impressive cars on the track were the new Corvette Grand Sport and both of the new 1LE Camaros – with the V6 model nearly matching the new all-wheel drive Ford Focus RS.

This year’s Car & Driver Lightning Lap trials were packed with supercars and while the best-finishing Chevrolet product was the new Corvette Grand Sport, it is hard to argue that the newest Corvette and Camaros offered up some of the most impressive lap times.

Corvette Grand Sport Finishes 4th, Beats European Exotics
The best finishing Chevrolet in the 2016 Lightning Lap was the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport, which laid down a lap time of 2:47.1 – just 1 tenth of a second behind the 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. That Porsche starts at $176k, whereas the Grand Sport starts at $66,445 and $74,440 with the optional Z07 performance package.

Finishing behind the new Corvette Grand Sport were the 2016 McLaren 570S (2:47.4), the 2017 Acura NSX (2:50.2), the 2016 Mustang GT350R (2:51.8), the BMW M4 GTS (2:52.9) and the Porsche Cayman GT4 (2:54) – many of which are vehicles that are commonly cross-shopped by prospective buyers. You can see the full list of times for the 2016 Lightning Lap below, which also includes the Audi R8 V10 Plus.

Across the 10 years of Lightning Lap, the new Grand Sport is the 9th quickest car to lap the VIR Grand West course and in the Grand Sport’s LL3 price class... [Read More]

M-E Doubters: Time To Fold Your Cards

Sep 12, 2016 - 5:17 PM - by elegant
Thanks to AutoWeek, we have the first visual proof the mid-engine C8 Corvette. Here is your proof.

If recent reports are to be believed, the long-rumored mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette could be here as early as 2019. Naturally, Chevy is trying to keep a tight lid on the development, but these fresh spy photos give us the clearest look yet at the upcoming car.

They’re far from conclusive, but whatever Chevy is cooking up, it’s a radical departure from the Corvette as we know it -- and the engine is definitely not up front.

For years, we’ve heard rumors that the C7 would be the last “traditional” Corvette -- that, with the latest (and truly excellent) Corvette incarnation, the front-engine, rear-wheel-drive formula has been pushed to its limit. The vehicle we’re looking at, then, is very likely the next step in Corvette evolution. It still looks a lot like a development mule with a handful of C7 carryovers (the taillights, for example), but that extremely short nose and elongated rear end speak volumes.

Details remain predictably sparse; powertrain, price and performance all remain sketchy. Even its real name is an unknown; the project is apparently codenamed “Emperor,” and “Zora,” a tribute to the father of the Corvette, has been in the mix for a while now.

Also unclear is its position in
