Chevy Corvette C7.Rs take top two spots at Rolex 24 GTLM race

Just because you're in the same cars from the same car maker doesn't automatically make you buddies on the tracks. At the Rolex 24 at Daytona endurance race, even teams from the same brands need to be the best. And that is exactly what happened with Chevrolet's two Corvette C7.Rs teams, the No. 4 driven by Oliver Gavin and the No. 3 of Antonia Garcia, who ended up racing nose-to-tail for the grand crown. Luckily for Chevy, both cars did make it first to the finish line, just 0.034 seconds apart from each other.

It’s the Chevy Corvette’s turn to get hacked

Car hacking seems to be the new black recently. As cars get smarter, they also become more enticing targets to hackers for both fun and profit. From wireless key fobs to Chrysler's Jeeps to GM's OnStar, it seems no car is safe. Not even Chevrolet's Corvette, apparently.

You might have had your fill of Android Auto news last month because of Google I/O 2015, but that is no indication that Apple's CarPlay is going to be left on the sidelines.

2017 C8 Corvette could be a mid-engine beast

The Chevrolet Corvette has been around for decades now and one thing that each iteration of the car has had in common is a front mounted engine. In the automotive world, you can have front, mid, and rear engines and there are fantastic sports cars in each of those categories. Think Porsche 911 for rear-engine, Corvette (and a plethora of others) for front engine, and mostly exotics like Ferrari and a few others for mid-engine.

Tick the Performance Data Recorder option, however - the track day camera and telemetry system we tested out earlier this year - when you buy your 2015 Corvette, however, and there's now a Valet Mode to foil such hijinks.
