"2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Rocks, Rolls, and Thrills
Taking America's latest sports car for hot laps around our track
Published: September 04, 2013 04:00 PM

With the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, believe the hype.

Few cars that those of us at the Consumer Reports’ Auto Test Center review live up to the hype. But every now and then, a new model meets or exceeds expectations.

One of those rare moments arrived last fall with the Tesla Model S, and another unfolded early last Friday morning when we were greeted by a canary-yellow, seventh-generation 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray sitting in our shop. Nearly the whole staff stopped to gawk even before their morning coffee. (That last part is noteworthy.) Once caffeinated, they drifted back, somehow drawn to comment and reminisce.

And why not? The new Corvette is the sleekest-looking American-bred machine in years. Although we’re not normally wowed by such things, the knowledge that under its carbon-fiber hood is an all-new 460-hp, 6.2-liter V8 kindles a certain salivary urge. Besides, about a hundred feet away was our test track, with almost a mile of snaky handling circuit and a Boeing 787-worthy straightaway."
