GM Could Beat the Viper with a Slightly More Powerful 2016 Corvette Stingray

While the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will likely prove to be the performance leader in the American supercar segment, adding a bit more power to the Corvette Stingray in the near future could allow the far less expensive Chevy sports car to knock off the mighty Dodge Viper in almost any performance venue.

This story is reported by Patrick Rall for TorqueNews.com, titled GM Could Beat the Viper with a Slightly More Powerful 2016 Corvette Stingray.

When the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was introduced for the 2014 model year, it was instantly compared to the 2013 SRT Viper. Even though the Stingray packs almost 200 less horsepower and costs about half as much as the Viper, the lack of real competition for either the Corvette or the Viper in the American market led to many publications pitting these two US sports cars head to head. Surprisingly, the C7 Stingray held its own, often beating the SRT Viper in the areas of skid pad handling, slalom handling and braking while losing in the races that focused the most on power, such as 0-60 and quarter mile times.

While it is all but certain that the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will beat the Dodge Viper in every way when it arrives with 650 horsepower and 650lb-ft of torque, there is a chance that adding a bit more power to the “normal” Corvette could allow Stingray owners to outrun Viper owners in every venue.

Why Would GM Pack More Power into the Corvette Stingray?
The 2014 and 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is powered by a new LT1 V8 that packs 455 or 460 horsepower depending on whether or not the high performance exhaust system is chosen. This puts it well below the 640hp Viper and that huge differential in power was why the Stingray failed to adequately challenge the mighty Viper in quarter mile races and 0-60 times. The Stingray beat the Viper in the slalom, the skid pad and in braking distances so while adding a bit more power wont allow the C7 “base”... [Read More]

Z06 Production Changes

Oct 14, 2014 - 12:10 PM - by elegant
For those of us who have been waiting, yes impatiently, for the new Z06 to arrive, wishing that GM hurries up the process and starts production right away, the following is a very vivid, and very visual example of why GM properly takes months and months and months to field test, refine, improve, and ultimately upgrade brand-new models, in this case the beloved Z06.

Here is a before picture of the Z06 is LT4 intake system. This system was shown at the January 13th Z06 reveal at NAIAS.


Note that the air comes in through an intake system above the right front wheel then curves around, approximately 135 degrees, to face obliquely into the front of the motor. In order to allow for the motor even some minor flexing in its motor mounts as a result of torque changes, flexing differentially from the fender structure, there are many corrugations in that intake tube. However, as we all know air intake corrugations interfere with smooth efficient air flow. We now have, thanks to Halltech, a picture of the revised, production intake system (below). Note, that it flows directly into the front of the motor, almost force feed due to its straight shot, i.e, the faster the car goes, the greater air-ram effect. No more corrugations, no curves, in short a more efficient system -- though we do have what appears to be a Helmholtz sound attenuation reservoir (thank you "MarkRx") off to one side of that intake to reduce unwanted intake sounds. 2015 production Z06's will have this new intake system.


We also know of one other significant area in which the preproduction, stage 1, Z06 has undergone a significant change, i.e., whereas the initial GM communications referred to the spoiler being the same as that on a Z-51 StingRay, told it even had the same part number, we learned in April at the NCM BASH that the Z-51 spoiler did not provide enough rear downforce on the car. Hence, the production stage 1 version now has a three piece spoiler that looks a fair amount like that on the other two... [Read More]

Corvette DP Wins 2014 Petit LeMans, IMSA Prototype Championship

Last weekend Ricky Taylor and Jordan Taylor become the first ever American born drivers to win the Petit LeMans in their Corvette Daytona Prototype with help from Italian teammate Max Angelelli, but the Road Atlanta win wasn’t enough to stop the Action Express Corvette DP from winning the 2014 United SportsCar Championship.

Patrick Rall reports from TorqueNews Chevrolet.

Coming into Road Atlanta for the Petit Lemans – the final stop on the 2014 United SportsCar Championship series – the Prototype class was led by three teams campaigning the Chevrolet Daytona Prototype. In addition to being one of the key endurance races run in the world, the 10 hour race at Road Atlanta would help decide the winners of the 2014 driver, team and manufacturer’s championship.

The Final Run for the Championship
The #5 Action Express Corvette DP was in first place in the team championship battle with 316 points while the #10 Wayne Taylor Racing Corvette DP was second with 294 points and the #90 Spirit of Daytona Corvette DP was third with 293 points. In the driver’s championship, Action Express drivers Joao Barbosa and Christian Fittipaldi were tied for first with 316 points followed by Taylor Racing drivers Ricky and Jordan Taylor with 294 points in second while Michael Viliante and Richard Westbrook of the #90 Spirit of Daytona car were third with 293 points. With 36 points on the line for the winner of the Petit LeMans, the championship was within reach of all three Corvette race cars, but the 22 points lead for the Action Express car would be a major deficit to overcome for the #10 or #90 Corvette.

Corvette Z06 Crashed on Nurburgring Record Run!

We have been watching videos coming from the Z06 Nurburgring testing all week, and wondering if they are trying to set some 'Ring Records with, what they are calling their "most track capable Corvette ever." It seems as though someone has found the limit of the Corvette on the infamous "Green Hell" that is the Nurburgring.

The photo above is the only evidence of the accident as of yet, so we don't have a lot of information on the crash, but you can imagine that the driver was doing a fair clip when the ends swapped on him.

Anyone have anymore information on this unfortunate crash?

A 2015 Corvette Z06 is on Ebay.

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?
