Dealers are wasting no time getting the word out about their soon-to-be-produced Z06's. There is a listing (pictured above) for a new Z06 that will be arriving at Hubbard GM Center in the coming months. They are advertising this car before it has even been built, and that seems kind of suspect to me. What do you guys think?

Fixing PDR Privacy Violation Issue!

Oct 02, 2014 - 1:54 AM - by elegant
The PDR privacy violation solution is coming soon, and the fix appears simple. As before announced, it will be a simple software update.


[Quote=GM Authority]When the Performance Data Recorder (PDR) option was introduced for the 2015 Corvette, Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles characterized the Valet Mode that was included in the package as “a baby monitor for your car” and added, “Anyone who has felt apprehension about handing over their keys will appreciate the peace of mind of knowing exactly what happened while their baby was out of sight.” However, now it has come to light that Valet Mode may violate privacy laws in certain states, so Chevrolet is developing a software update that should fix the issue.

PDR is a new feature that, in the words of Chevrolet, turns the Stingray into a driving analysis tool. A driver can record every aspect of his/her driving including real-time audio and video plus up to 30 channels of performance data. However, according to a notice sent to dealers, “To help our customers use the Performance Data Recorder consistent with legal requirements that pertain to audio recording devices, we will be requiring a very important update to the system of each affected vehicle in the near future. We expect that the update will be available early next month. At that time, we will provide details about the update and let you know what steps you need to take, if any, to complete the update for vehicles in your inventory.”

Chevrolet spokesman Monte Doran says, “The update will disable the audio recording feature in Valet Mode but all other features of PDR will continue to operate normally,” with General Motors telling dealers the following:

In the meantime, you must advise any customers who take delivery of an impacted vehicle that they should refrain from using the Valet Mode until the update takes place. If they do use the Valet Mode, they should notify any occupants of the vehicle that they will be recorded while in the vehicle, and obtain their consent to this recording. It is very important that you explain this to each customer at the time of delivery.

GM also sent letters to current 2015... [Read More]

Z06: 0-60 In 2.95, 1/4 @ 10.95 @ 127

Oct 01, 2014 - 10:08 AM - by elegant
Milestone news, new 8-speed automatic transmission Z06 does 2.95 seconds, the manual 3.2 seconds. While both hit the teams at 127 MPH, the auto again gets there quicker, 10.95 versus 11.2. Thanks to "Fasttoys1" for finding and posting at the link (and all discussion there please).

Let's post all commentary here please:

GeigerCars Turns the C7 Corvette Stingray into a Proper Supercar for Euro Roads

German tuning company GeigerCars has made a name for itself by developing unique packages for European-sold American vehicles and their take on the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is just the latest in impressive custom packages – turning the basic C7 Corvette Stingray into a supercar that will keep up with the best across Europe.

Patrick Rall reports from TorqueNews.com.

If you want to buy an American car like the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and you live in Germany, GeigerCars has you covered. GeigerCars offers a long list of American vehicles that include everything from mild mannered family sedans to heavy duty pickups to high performance models including the Corvette, the Dodge Viper and the Ford Mustang so there aren’t many requests that they cannot answer. The company also goes one step further, offering unique tuning packages for a variety of high performance models including the Chevrolet Camaro Z28 that we discussed a few weeks back.

The newest offering from the tuning division of GeigerCars is the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which benefits from a host of changes to turn the well-known American sports car into a proper supercar.

The GeigerCars Tuned C7 Stingray
In modifying the new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, GeigerCars began under the hood where the standard LT1 V8 has been fitted with an Eaton supercharger, raising the output of the Corvette from 455hp and 460lb-ft of torque to 590 horsepower and 558lb-ft of torque. The German tuner expects this to allow the C7 Stingray to reach speeds of 200 miles per hour and it can likely get there in a big hurry.


After the engine had been seriously beefed up, GeigerCars turned their attention to the handling capabilities of the C7 Corvette Stingray. A 3-way adjustable KW coilover suspension package has been added and in addition to improving the road gripping abilities of the Stingray, this suspension setup also allows for adjustments of between 10mm and...

C8 Chevrolet Corvette Exclusive from Car & Driver!

From the October 2014 Issue of Car and Driver

GM’s head of global product development, Mark Reuss, confirms that the company is working on the next Corvette. Our sources elaborate on this salient piece of information, telling us that, after 61 years of evolution, the C8 will be revolutionary. The new Corvette will be the mid-engined American Dream Machine that Chevy couldn’t, until now, muster the courage to build. In truth, the factory is still not prepared to detail what’s coming, which is why you’re looking at the 2017 model year through our freshly waxed crystal ball.

Why mid-engine? Because the C7 Corvette, especially the Z06 edition, is tapped out. Adding more power to a front-engine design only accelerates the conversion of rubber into smoke at the rear. Moving the engine’s mass closer to the drive tires is the most effective means of improving Corvette acceleration and braking.

The second reason is less engineering-driven: Chevy wants to finally move the Corvette past the basic proportions and form language it has used since the C3. Today’s Stingray is a dream car for men on the wrong side of 50. But by updating the exterior with a radical remix of its visual masses, the Corvette could sweep the odd Aventador, LaFerrari, P1, and 918 posters off adolescents’ bedroom walls. As Chevy well knows, kids grow up quickly, and the fortunate ones convert their salaries to sports cars. Read on for how the C8 will take shape.

The Plan
The C8 flagship, the Zora ZR1, will debut the new mid-engine architecture. Launching as a 2017 model, it will define the top of the Corvette hierarchy just as its precursors did in the 1990–1995 C4 generation and 2009–2013 C6 model years. As before, the ZR1... [Read More]
