Not too long ago a massive sinkhole opened up underneath the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The massive sinkhole swallowed multiple limited edition collector Corvette models that were on display. As large as the sinkhole is, it was surprising that only eight of the many cars on display were affected by the sinkhole.
Chevrolet has unveiled the 2015 Corvette Z06, taking the Corvette Stingray into true supercar territory with 625+ HP from a supercharged 6.2L engine, and set to hit dealerships from early 2015. The hotly-anticipated car was revealed at the North American International Auto Show today, in addition to the new Z07 performance package aimed at those using the car for track driving, and which Chevrolet says, in its testing, has already out-performed the 2014 Corvette ZR1.
The North American International Auto Show kicks off today. This show is also sometimes called the Detroit auto show. There will be a number of new vehicles unveiled at the show today and many of them will come from US automakers.
Chevrolet hit a home run with the new 2015 Corvette Stingray. The car isn't exactly affordable, but it has proven to be one of the best looking and performing Corvettes the automaker has ever produced. A while back Chevy started to tease a more potent version of the new Corvette Stingray for unveil in Detroit.
When like Chevrolet you've got a WiFi and LTE connection integrated into the brain of your cars, there's more you can do than just get the kids online in the rear seats: you can turn Google Glass into a head-up display. Demonstrated as a proof-of-concept here at CES 2014, the Chevrolet Glass app hooks up specifically to the new Corvette Stingray, feeding real-time statistics like speed, gear, engine RPM, and G-force straight to the screen of the Android wearable.
Chevrolet has detailed its "Connected by OnStar" 4G intentions for 2014, confirming which of the cars in its range will be first to get AT&T LTE as standard, and we went hands-on with some of the first apps for the new connected car platform. First announced back at Mobile World Congress 2013, the scheme will see 4G connectivity no longer the preserve of luxury vehicles alone, with GM choosing a spread of cars from the cheapest Spark through to the feistiest Corvette Stingray to be among the first models to go online. It's not just turning a car into a mobile hotspot, either; Chevrolet aims to use the technology to demystify the whole vehicle ownership experience.
Change down into third, watch your apex, and then roll back onto the throttle as you power down the straight; it's the perfect lap, and the 2015 Corvette Stingray aims to record it. Chevrolet has announced one of the more unusual options for its new sports car, the Performance Data Recorder or PDR that combines a road-perspective video camera, in-cabin audio, and telemetry data direct from the Stingray's digital brain to record your driving to an SD card slotted into the glove compartment. The roar of the Stingray Convertible still ringing in our ears, SlashGear showed hardly any reluctance whatsoever about sliding behind the Stingray's wheel and testing it out at CES 2014.
Chevrolet has announced a new and very potent version of the all-new Corvette Stingray will be unveiled in Detroit at the North American International Auto show. In advance of that official unveil; Chevy is teasing the car with a single image. Since it is a teaser photo, it doesn't show much detail of the car.
