The mid-engined Chevrolet Corvette. It is as mythical and fleeting as a unicorn, or the new Frank Ocean album. For decades now—literally decades—General Motors has flirted with a mid-engined ‘Vette that could really take the fight to European exotics. It has never happened. So why is GM now spending $290 million to…
The Corvette is, as I said earlier, virtually a car without vices. So what’s the problem?
The ‘90s to ‘00s Corvette is, in many ways, a car without vices. It drives well, it handles well, with a V8, a stick shift, and rear-wheel drive. It even has pop up headlights. And yet.
Nothing ruins an automotive experience quite so badly as a horrible steering wheel.
The low, rumbling howl of the Corvette C7.R’s V8 engine is amazing in its own right, but I think the mating call that summons them may just be slightly more amazing.
The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport is the track-focused sports car for the common person, and Chevrolet announced on Friday just how much that person will have to pay in order to get it: $66,445, at the car’s cheapest.
This Corvette Z06 with the Z07 package and all the options was close to $100,000 when new, which doesn’t exactly make it the ideal ride of the proletariat masses you think of when you picture a Bernie Sanders supporter. So what the hell is going on here?
Why is it the Russians always seem to have all the good, crazy ideas?
If taking your new car out for a track day and risking a parts failure is too much of a headache for your wallet, ease up if it happens to be a V8 Chevrolet Camaro.

This car started out as a bone-stock new Chevrolet Corvette. What it has become is a drag radial monster with a 4,000 horsepower twin-turbo Hemi good for 200 mph in 4.05 seconds.

The one-of-a-kind 1961 Kelly Corvette is proof to all car enthusiasts that anything is possible with enough luck, a great dream and lots of dedication.
Next time, take the car with you, dude.
The year is 1973, the place is Budapest, the man in power in Moscow is Leonid Brezhnev, and the car casually parked on the street is a white Chevrolet Corvette C3 showing googly eyes and the stripes of freedom.
The in-house competition at Chevrolet between the Camaro SS and the Corvette C7 just heated up with a recent dyno test of the SS putting more horsepower down at the rear wheels over its not-so-superior sibling.
1,730 horsepower at low-mid boost with a two-stage N2O setup sending everything to the rear wheels. Yes, that might be too much for a Corvette to handle.
I’m no great fan of the third-generation Chevrolet Corvette, mainly because of the way it descended from sexy badass ‘60s muscle-sports car to a sad malaise-mobile by the early ‘80s. But much of that isn’t the C3 Corvette’s fault, and if you do one right, it can be deeply amazing.
