StingRay Rated # 1 Of All Sports Cars!

Feb 28, 2015 - 11:15 AM - by elegant
Consumers Reports, in its just released annual auto issue, had great things to report about the StingRay! We would not have learned this however, without the following post by "Drive-C7," so with thanks for that below post. Meanwhile, StingRay owners, keep smiling!

Just got the latest April issue of CR Annual Auto Issue. There are only 11 vehicles rated "Tops in our Tests" and the C7 is one of these. This rating includes all vehicles not just sports cars.

In addition it is the only sports car rated "most satisfying" by the CR annual owner satisfaction survey. This was interesting as apparently the Porsche owners did not rate their car as "satisfying" as C7 owners did, as it was not included in the list. Again, there were only 15 cars listed, with the C7 the only sports car in the listing of "most satisfying."
It is also one of the top ten vehicles rated tops for emergency handling which rates how capable, secure and forgiving a vehicle is.

It is great that other people are finding out what the C7 owners already know. This is one of the best vehicles you can buy today. I know some owners have had reliability issues (I am not one) but CR has rated reliability as average which means the majority have had no issues.
Thank you again "Drive-C7!"

Engine Build Experience in Full Swing according to NCM

Feb 26, 2015 - 4:58 PM - by jsvette
From today's (26 Feb 2015) NCM enews:

Corvette Z06 buyers now have the option to assembly their 650-hp supercharged LT4 engine at the new Performance Build Center inside the Bowling Green Assembly Plant.

The Engine Build Experience is selected with order code PBC and is offered on all Z06 trim levels.

The Museum handles the concierge services for Engine Build customers and coordinates many aspects of the program. We welcomed our first Engine Build customer, Henry Younger of Gurley, AL, on February 11. "Being there at the Plant makes this option much more attractive now," said Younger. "This is my second build and it was fantastic just as my first was. The LT4 is so much different than the LS7 I built first - incredible is the only way to say it, I guess, along with a big WOW, what an engine."
The $5,000 option comes with a full day with a Performance Build Center engine assembly technician who instructs and oversees the build; a personalized engine plaque identifying the owner/builder and the date of the engine build; professional photography of the experience; piston trophy commemorating the experience and a build your own engine polo.

StingRay "Art Car"

Feb 20, 2015 - 2:02 PM - by elegant
While we normally do not put videos in our Corvette News section, as "art cars" have become famous enough to have major car brands run them at the 24 Hours of LeMans, here's the end-process picture, and/or watch the fast-motion, one minute video to see it painted.

Even in an Awful Month, Corvette Pummels Porsche Car Sales

The Chevrolet Corvette posted its worst sales month since the new C7 Stingray was introduced in October 2013, but even in a record-low month – the Corvette still comfortably outsold the next closest premium performance car sold in America, beating the Porsche 911 by a rate of almost 2-to-1. Patrick Rall reports for TorqueNews.com

First, since there has been some question from readers as to why I compare the sales figures for the Chevrolet Corvette to those of the Porsche brand cars, we should all keep in mind that the closest competitor in terms of performance and amenities in the US market is the Porsche 911. However, the 911 is more expensive than the Chevy, leaving the Porsche Boxster/Cayman duo to be the more closely related of the Porsche cars to the Corvette. In any case, behind the Corvette, the next bestselling premium sports car in the US is the Porsche 911 and for that reason, I like to look at how well the Corvette is selling relative to the rest of the closest competition.

Really, there is no good comparison vehicle in the US market for the Chevrolet Corvette, which only goes to show why the C7 is selling so well and why the Corvette is so very good in every way.

Corvette Leads through Sales Slump
Winter has hit the United States very hard over the past few weeks, with many parts of the country getting more snow than at any other point this year. That influx of snow leads to decreased interest in performance cars for many buyers in areas that see frigid temperatures, so it doesn’t come as a big surprise that Corvette sales were down last month. It does come as a bit of a surprise that the Corvette posted the worst monthly sales figures since the C7 first went on sale, but with 2,127 new models sold in January, the legendary Chevy was still the bestselling premium sports car in the US. Also, the Corvette was the 4th bestselling sporty car overall, behind only the three American muscle cars.

A8 Z06's Start To Be Released Tomorrow

Feb 03, 2015 - 2:14 PM - by elegant

Hopefully, hopefully some will start to ship tomorrow, though all need to remember that the contract that Jack Cooper Transport has with the Plant, is that the transporter has up to 10 days to remove cars from the property that have been released to them. Hopefully, Jack Cooper has been given a heads up, and that they have a whole fleet of transporters ready to take the A8 Z06's away tomorrow.

No additonal information on either invoices, nor on any potential change in gas guzzler tax status available at this time.
