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?
There’s no way around it: 2016 is continuing its status as the Great Asshole Year by taking music legends away from us. Today, it was Prince, because apparently David Bowie wasn’t enough for this ghoulish year. From a gearhead perspective, Prince may be best known for his song “Little Red Corvette.” That song was …
Two words could sum up the final moments of the 12 Hours of Sebring, but we’ll pick a name instead: Pipo. Derani. All eyes were on Extreme Speed Motorsports’ young star driver as he charged through to the lead and gave ESM a combined 36 Hours of Florida win for 2016—all with only 12 minutes left in the race.
The No. 3 Corvette of Jan Magnussen and No. 911 Porsche 911 of Kévin Estre were battling for the GTLM class lead at Sebring when they took each other out in the eighth hour of the race. The 911 went nose-forward into the tire wall just past the pit straight, but Magnussen was able to fire the ‘Vette back up and limp…
One of the most anticipated cars of this year’s Geneva Motor Show was the 2017 Porsche 911R, a 500 horsepower GT3 RS without the annoying automatic gearbox. A car that was sold out before you’d know about it. Meanwhile, Chevrolet secretly made something very similar that normal people can have too, with or without…
I’m deeply thankful for all these new naturally-aspirated track day cars, like the Camaro Z/28, Porsche 911 GT3 RS and Mustang GT350R. They buck this trend of sticking a turbo or a blower on every damn thing to stay all motor, baby. Now the Chevrolet Corvette joins that party too by bringing back a legendary name:…
A CarMax employee, 43 year-old Warren Smale, was killed when the Corvette being test-driven by 28 year-old Alex Demetro crashed into a tree on Tuesday, at a CarMax dealership in Ontario, California.
While this photo could make anyone want to put the pedal to the floor in its featured car, it’s sure to make any passerby put the brakes on themselves to get a look—pretty much like the modern Chevrolet Corvette does in real life, too.
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.
This 1963 Chevy Corvette Stingray sure makes a driver look cool. But when President Barack Obama is behind the wheel, that might be the other way around. Even Seinfeld seems dorkier than usual next to the commander in chief.
Every now and then something shows up on Craigslist that says more about the beauty of the human condition than countless, tedious books on the subject. This ad for a home-made airplane/Corvette with Dodge power is one of those ads.
A curious spy photographer found something interesting while trolling the US Patent and Trademark office: a trademark, registered by GM, for the words “Corvette E-Ray.” What’s Chevrolet up to here? An electric ‘Vette-based concept car for the Detroit Auto Show? A hybrid Corvette? A mid-engined ‘Vette that runs on eggs?

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.
This weekend, our featured wallpaper is just plain peaceful — with the photo lighting, can you just imagine driving off into the sunset behind the wheel of this car (at high speeds)?
Seeing a fast car driving slowly can be irksome. I mean, what’s the point of doing 55 MPH in a car capable of so much more? Still, even if it makes you roll your eyes, chances are you don’t think it’s a capital offense. There seems to be at least one trigger-happy idiot in a Mustang who disagrees, since he reportedly…
Earlier this week, Callaway Competition showed off its Corvette C7 GT3-R at the ADAC GT Masters Season Finale at the Hockenheimring in Germany. It’s got a huge wing, tons of carbon fiber, a sweet ducted cooling module and vents all over the place. This thing oozes with engineering goodness.
A sports car on an open road is a great place to do some thinking. This is a truth every gearhead can confirm. So when Benjamin Preston wanted to get to the heart of the American sports car—its past and its future—he couldn’t have picked a better thinking chamber than the 2015 Corvette Stingray.
It’s pretty amazing what you can do with a cheap LED and a DSLR. Last weekend a friend visited and brought this beastly yellow machine, of course I couldn’t help but break out the tripod and snap a few shots.
