Callaway just made the Corvette cooler with this wagon modification

The Corvette. Chevy's masterpiece of a two-door sports car, with an iconic, easily recognizable design. The thought of giving it a wagon-style body, even maintaining the same number of doors, seems like it should be a crime. But — what if — it was actually awesome? Turns out it is, and Callaway has already made it a reality. The aftermarket tuner, known for customizing cars with the Chevy badge — especially Corvettes — has announced the AeroWagen package for C7 Stingray and Z06 models, to be available this fall.

2017 Corvette Grand Sport is a lightweight track weapon

Chevrolet has rolled out a new version of the Corvette Stingray called the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport. You can think of this car as the naturally aspirated version of the Corvette Z06.

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. Researchers from the University of California San Diego proved that this particular car, and probably others like it, are also susceptible to attacks, giving hackers unmitigated control over certain functions of the car, with some particularly dangerous consequences.

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. In fact, it might actually beat Google to the wider market punch, and Chevy will be at the forefront.

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.
