Here’s a bit of advice for any Viper guys who might be trolling this site: when you’re up against a Corvette in a race, you just might want to hold off on the trash talking — even if it’s a woman driving a ‘Vette.

Make no mistake about it, Corvette buyers still crave a lot of the hard-core traditional performance stuff that has always defined the sports car, even when opting for the new Corvette Stingray.
