    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.”

    It will be interesting to see if the GS gets as many awards as the Stingray in the first year. Don't know how many awards the Stingray got in the first year, but it was too many. Don't know how many awards for the Z06 either. It will be interesting to compare the number of awards for the Stingray-GS-Z06 in their first year of production...
    2015 Z51 Stingray Coupe, 3LT, Shark Gray, A8, Mag Ride, NPP exhaust, PDR/Nav, Split Spoke Black Machined Wheels, Carbon Flash Spoiler and Mirrors, Carbon Flash Badges, Yellow Calipers, Kalahari Int, GT Seats with Suede Micro Inserts, Suede Upper Trim, Personalized Plaque, Lower on Stock Bolts, Weekend/Pleasure Car, Ordered April 2014, Change to 15 Model in July 2014, Delivered on Dec 22, 2014, Almost 9 month wait for this Stingray...

    The 2014 StingRay received 21 major awards. That was and still remains a record -- for all new models of any brand in the year after it was revealed.

    Here is a partial list of those awards.

    They lauded its sculpted exterior, driver-centric cockpit and intelligent performance.

The 2014 Corvette Stingray beat out every other 2014 vehicle to earn the prestigious title.

    The "biggest" award it won was the North American Car of the Year, as follows:

    Making the news in Muscat Oman: Chevrolet Corvette: A legendary sports car. I like that our cars develop this kind of respect, even in the Middle East where supercars are everywhere.
