Do you sometimes get the feeling that things are bad and terrible all of the time? Well, they are. But! There are rays of hope and joy that break through the clouds of our misery on occasion. This drone-shot video of Formula Drift racer Matt Field’s 1,060 horsepower Corvette tearing up a mountain road is definitely …
A Ferrari V8 sounds like a Ferrari V8, largely, because it has a flat-plane crankshaft setup. No other American V8 muscle cars, with the exception of the Voodoo V8 found in the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R, have flat-plane crank V8s. Until this guy came along with his modified C6 Corvette Z06.
What’s this? Our mid-engine Corvette bonanza continues, this time with spy video from the Nürburgring? This button works so we’re gonna keep hitting it, folks.
Are you sick of the mid-engine Corvette yet? Trick question, of course you aren’t. You desperately want to see it for real, desire to have it in your hermetically sealed garage, dream of hearing its American V8 howl behind your head for you and you alone. That day is not today! But until it is, enjoy more spy shots.
What’s this? Even more photos of the mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette hanging around the Nürburgring? It’s truly a Labor Day miracle.
It may be Labor Day in the U.S., but the Corvette team is skipping the holiday to test a certain prototype at the world’s most intense race track. Here’s the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette arriving at a testing center near the Nürburging, and with less camouflage than we’ve seen previously.
Perhaps realizing few will pay attention to or talk about it after the expected coming of its successor, the ancient mythological beast known as the mid-engine Corvette, this current-generation Corvette Z06 evidently wanted to get some attention by fighting a wall at the Nürburgring in Germany. It lost.
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…
