I find triple-black C7 Corvettes as addictive as cigarettes are to rebellious 14-year-olds. I could look at one of these all day, but as arresting as ATX-C7’s new Corvette may be, that’s not what makes his car Corvette of the Week. This quote makes his car Corvette of the Week: “Coming from a Porsche 911, this car is SO much fun to drive.”
There’s always one right? That one person who regardless of what everyone else says, figures he’ll go against the grain. Yup, and believe it or not, there’s one who even exists among all the journalists in the world who have weighed in on the award-winning 2014 Corvette Stingray. Wait, was that “award-winning”? Oh yeah, award-winning, which is why it almost seems odd when you hear anyone say anything bad about the C7.
If there were any skepticism about General Motors’ commitment to making the Corvette Stingray one of the most competitive sports cars in the world, then a recent report by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) eradicates any doubt. According to the top engineering industry source, GM is pretty certain its all-new 8L90 automatic transmission will give the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray an EPA-certified 30 mpg on the highway.
Chances are if you own a new Corvette Stingray you’ve been itching for a couple of pointers on how to get the most out of your baby’s performance capabilities … that is unless you already consider yourself in the ranks of greats like Mario Andretti. Either way, Chevy wants to help you get a better handle on how to get the most out of your new Corvette Stingray by offering a reduced rate to 2014 Corvette owners who attend the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School.
The C7 Corvette represents a major leap over the C6 in all categories. In terms of design, that leap is best delineated when you compare their rumps. The contrast is striking, isn’t it?
