Renting a car can be glamorous or a total cluster, depending on whether you want it more for the experience or as a means to get somewhere for the lowest price. This new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 rental at Hertz leans toward the former, but don’t expect to get far—it has a cap at 75 miles per day before fees rack up.
The car industry has few secrets, at least when it comes to car designs. Any dramatic new vehicle you see debut was usually previewed by a concept car a few years before. So if we know a mid-engine Corvette is due, there’s gotta be some concept car from a couple years back that previews it. And this might be the one.
Another day, another mid-engine Corvette sighting. Except this isn’t some blocky mule running around a gas station with a tarp on its face, this appears to be the new Corvette C8.R race car.
There’s still no official word from GM regarding the “mid-engine Corvette” but images and audio of the camouflaged race car running around today yield some, uh, interesting aural hints as to what powers the thing.
A Renault driver was hospitalized and two pedestrians narrowly escaped a 3,347-pound Chevrolet Corvette C7 hurtling at them uncontrollably in Tula, Russia, on Wednesday, after the Corvette struck the Renault and veered into a shop. The driver of the Corvette appeared to emerge unharmed.
Even some employees at a Georgia dealership were surprised at one of its recent used-car listings: a 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, priced at an incredible $499,900. The list price hilariously sits above the Kelley Blue Book estimate for a factory Grand Sport on Autotrader, which is in the mid-$60,000 range.
When the third-generation Corvette came out in the late ‘60s, it was a huge departure for the kind of car that it was, a major design departure. When it came time to replace that car all the way in the early ‘80s, there was a huge question about how radical that new design would be. And that meant that there were all…
About an hour in I called it quits. I was fairly sure that I knew what most of this car was, but I gave up any hope that I might find out its exact history from googling around. This mystery car, looking like a mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette prototype that never was, had stumped me. At least it had stumped everyone…
The 1980s weren’t a great time for sports cars, with engines choked with smog equipment, tall final drive ratios killing acceleration, and other questionable fuel-saving equipment making cars suck more than they needed to. The “Doug Nash 4+3,” a four-speed manual on the Chevrolet Corvette with push-button overdrive in…
It is here: the 1050-horsepower drift Corvette. It is the power car. It is the car of great strength. It is ready to tear shit up.
One of the fastest cars in the world at the moment is a Chevrolet Corvette with a V6 under the hood. Which V6, I wondered, like so many of you at this very moment. As it turns out, it’s a unique one, one with a bit of story behind it.
The weather is getting warmer and you know what that means: it’s time to get yourself a sports car! If you are in the market for some all-American V8 thunder, there are some crazy good deals to be had on the Chevrolet Corvette, and you’ll even have your choice of three model years. People aren’t buying these things,…
One of my favorite car enthusiasts is currently starting a project to put a Toyota 2JZ, the legendary Supra motor, into a 1982 Chevrolet Corvette, and this got me thinking: what GM should do is make new Vettes with straight sixes.
It was only a matter of time. All the signs were there. Finally, in America, Corvettes are taking over drifting. Surprisingly, the momentum feels like it started abroad.
Back in May, we reported on an acid-green Corvette Z06 that crashed into a tree in Michigan after excessive speeding, which smashed the car to pieces and left the two passengers inside with broken bones. The driver, Jie Fu Gong, 22, has been sentenced to nine months in jail.
You may remember earlier this month when we showed you some leaked CAD images of the upcoming mid-engine’d C8 Corvette. You may also recall that those images were proven to be real because GM’s lawyers told us, without really telling us so. Well, it’s happening again, but this time we’ve got an even better look at…
Put on your blindingly white racing gloves and hop in the seat of the “most advanced” vehicle the world has ever seen. It’s the newest Chevrolet Corvette, and with its pop-up headlights and computer activated manual transmission, you’ve never felt anything like this before.
