Here's Why Jim Glickenhaus Bought A Corvette Z06 For His Daughter

My earliest memories are of my Dad's 1988 Testarossa. Black with red interior. It was before airbag laws and he used to drive me to preschool. At my urging, he'd drive past the school to the end of the street and make a U-turn so that I could spend a couple more minutes in the car. It was a masterpiece, a sex bomb, a… » 12/19/14 9:30am 12/19/14 9:30am

The New Corvette Daytona Prototype Will Eat You For Breakfast

Daytona Prototypes have long been burdened with awkward proportions and a nose that looks a lot like a shovel. Not anymore. Behold the new 2015 bodywork for the Corvette DPs. It's so mean, it will chew you up and poop you out its rear splitter in a gross wad of people-mulch. » 12/12/14 5:20pm 12/12/14 5:20pm

2015 Corvette Z06 First Drive: Stupid fast, remarkably cheap

Let's review a few things: At $54,995 and 455 hp, the current, seventh-generation Corvette is a monster, a practical and almost flaw-free device. Similarly, as the media is fond of telling you, we live in a golden age; if you're building fast cars, you have to offer at least 500 hp if you want any attention. The last… » 11/24/14 2:40pm 11/24/14 2:40pm

Why Buy A Chevy Camaro When This Insane Corvette Z06 Costs Way Less?

The Chevy Corvette is the ultimate staple in the little niche we call performance cars. It employs a blend of old and new technology to thrust you to a nearly unimaginable rate of speed. This amazingly aggressive thrill machine can now be had for less money than its fatter, uglier, and slower sister - the Camaro. » 10/15/14 6:40pm 10/15/14 6:40pm

Forget The Mid-Engined Corvette: There Was Once A Rear-Engine 'Vette

Rumors of upcoming mid-engined Corvettes are one of those things that never seem to go away, like that funny rash on your thigh or that process server who just can't seem to take a hint. Strangely, there was another alternate Corvette layout that never seems to resurface: the rear-engined 'Vette. Yet there actually… » 9/16/14 8:30pm 9/16/14 8:30pm

Jeremy Clarkson Loves The Corvette Stingray

Anyone with two brain cells to rub together stopped taking Clarkson's car reviews seriously nearly a decade ago (maybe sooner). So when his review of the C7 Corvette Stingray popped up, I didn't even bother. And then I read it. And then I re-read it. And then I checked to make sure I wasn't inhabiting an alternate… » 7/31/14 3:49pm 7/31/14 3:49pm

Corvette Museum Sinkhole To Stick Around As Popular Tourist Attraction

The Corvette Museum sinkhole may be one of our nation's greatest tragedies, but it's had a strange unintended side effect: attendance and sinkhole-related merchandise sales at the Bowling Green, Kentucky museum have risen sharply. As such, the museum's board has decided to keep it around. » 6/26/14 3:30pm 6/26/14 3:30pm

Is The 650 HP Corvette Z06 The Final Nail In The Viper's Coffin?

The latest Dodge (née SRT) Viper is one of the most visceral and memorable performance cars I have ever driven. It's loud, angry, unbelievably fast, and completely worthy of the Viper name. There's just one big problem: not a lot of people are buying it. And now I wonder if the 2015 Corvette Z06 is about to finish it… » 6/10/14 10:38am 6/10/14 10:38am
