Model Information - Online Ordering Guide

There have been more than a few inquiries, "where/how do I specify the interior option group, e.g. 1 LZ, 2LZ, or 3LZ???" In the draft order your dealer will put together for you, and it is critical you review it before he/she submits it, as all of us are human being and can make a mistake, one of the major boxes for your dealer will check with be the "PEG" line.

New For 2015's: Valet Monitor

Aug 18, 2014 - 9:32 AM - by elegant
Ever worry about how your friend, the dealership or a valet is driving your Corvette? At least you will now know if you have a 2015 with the Performance Data Recorder. You just "set a lock code" and the car will start recording everything that is occurring, and when you get it back, you will know. If nothing else, when you hand over the keys, your informing the recipient that the cars actions are being recorded, and, for those who are very concerned, you could let the dealership staff to know that if that recording is interrupted, this will be the last time you ever being your car in for service there.

Owners of 2015 Chevrolet Corvettes will feel better about handing over the keys to their car, thanks to the new Valet Mode with Performance Data Recorder.

The industry-exclusive system allows drivers to lock the interior storage, disable the infotainment system and record video, audio and vehicle data when the Valet Mode is active.

“Think of it as a baby monitor for your car,” said Harlan Charles, Corvette product manager. “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.”

Introduced in 2014, the Corvette Valet Mode is turned on through the settings menu and activated by entering a unique four-digit code. A confirmation entry of the code simultaneously locks the storage bin behind the center stack display, the glove box and disables the radio and infotainment system.

With the introduction of the industry-first Performance Data Recorder for 2015, Corvette drivers can also record HD video, in-car audio, and vehicle data – including speed, engine RPM, gear position and g-force – when Valet Mode is

NCM Special Edition C7's

Aug 17, 2014 - 5:32 PM - by elegant
While being offered at the NCM's "20th Anniversary Celebration" at the end of this month's National Corvette Caravan, one need not be an event participant to enter the raffle. Here is your chance to own two unique StingRays, and to also benefit the National Corvette Museum.

The National Corvette Museum announced late last month that two special Corvette Stingrays would be raffled during the 20th Anniversary Celebration at the end of August. Now we’ve got our first look at the two raffle cars, a Torch Red Coupe and an Arctic White Convertible.

In September 1994, Corvette enthusiasts from all across the country joined together in caravans to drive to Bowling Green, Kentucky for the National Corvette Museum’s Grand Opening. Twenty years later, Corvette enthusiasts are joining together once again this labor day weekend for the 5th National Corvette Caravan to the NCM for the 20th Anniversary Celebration.

To help celebrate the occasion, these two new 2014 Corvette Stingrays are decked out in the NCM’s colors and logos and will be raffled on the Thursday and Friday during the Anniversary Celebration weekend.

The NCM’s Katie Frassinelli tells us that the two stripes used on the special editions are unique to the Anniversary cars, with a Torch Red stripe on the Arctic White Convertible while the Torch Red Coupe features White Pearl stripes. The only production red stripe is Crystal Red Metallic while a white racing stripe isn’t currently offered.

ZR1/C8 Mid-Engined: IF???

Aug 15, 2014 - 12:25 AM - by elegant

If you believe Motor Trend's new "scoop," they say that there will be a mid-engined $150,000-$200,000 ZR1 with between 750-800 HP, that it will spawn a whole C8 family, probably a whole separate GM "Corvette brand," all with mid-engines, and here it a concept of what it would look like.

We have all traveled the Corvette "yellow brick road, mid-engine fantasy" many times before, only for that road to become a mirage, or is this scoop based on fact. What do you think?

You like rumors? Hot, hard-to-resist rumors? Here’s one to jack your blood pressure through the roof! The next Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will be mid-engined. That’s right, kids! Multiple sources have told us that the next version of the Corvette ZR1 will be mid-engined. One of these sources even stated that the next-generation Corvette -- the C8 -- will ship with its engine mounted in the middle. The rendering above, by Tom Matsumoto, shows what the mid-engined Corvette could look like.

Yes, yes -- we know -- another story about a mid-engine Corvette. Will this madness never end? This particular fantasy tale, as some of you know, seems to have been continuously reported on since 1963 when the CERV II was built. The father of the Corvette -- Zora Arkus-Duntov -- seriously wanted to build a mid-engine ’Vette. Only GM’s cement-shoed board stopped him. Chevrolet tried again in 1964 with the (admittedly rear-engined) XP-819 and then again with the XP-882 in 1969. Next came the XP-895 in 1972, the two-rotor (and Porsche 914-based!) XP-897GT in 1973 (odd side note: the XP-897GT eventually got a Mazda 13B mated to a front-drive Cadillac transmission installed by its private owner in 1997), the Aerovette in

'15's New Parts

Aug 13, 2014 - 10:40 AM - by elegant
While all car manufacturers introduce rolling changes/upgrades (changes introduced during the middle of a model year), there are also, in addition to new options and announced changes for each upcoming model year, the "behind the scenes" part changes we mostly never know about. How many "quiet" changes in a typical model year changeover? How many for the 2015 StingRay? No one outside GM will ever know. Many guess that model year changes typically come with 30-40 "shhh" changes. Here is the first, documented, 2015 quiet change (now, no longer quiet).

Thanks to "Todd M" for this picture.

Is the "new for 2015 seat" simply a change of additional wiring "padding" or re-routing to deal with some pinched wire issues were previously learned about? Or, did GM listen to a fair amount of customer input that the bottom seat bolsters were too confining for some folks, thus they "sculpted"/widened the seat bottom cushions for 2015? Perhaps, now that this picture has surfaced, we will learn that answer.

However, how many other unannounced 2015 StingRay changes will we ever learn about? Manufacturers typically do not announce such changes, for once announced, for example (hypothetical), that "we just improved the material on the interior 'A' pillar"), every such change produces a run of calls, often complaints when the manufacturer refuses to make that change on every previous-year car.

While there are always strong advantages to getting a first year of a new model, there are also reasons why JD Power and Consumers Reports suggest (paraphrasing here), that they do not care whether it is a Rolls Royce or a Ferrari, we recommend waiting for the second year of a new model.

Let us use this thread to compile a list of "quiet" 2015 changes. First announced one, the 2015 seats are changed.
