2014 Corvette Stingray in the Wild - Downtown Phoenix
walking to my parking garage after work and saw a black 2014 Stingray. Too
slow with the camera. Then a blue one drove by and again, too slow. So I
stood there and waited to see if another one would come by. Yup.
Sorry, the audio is complete crap. I think my hand was covering the mic on
VW Konzernabend - Genfer Autosalon 2013
Zum Messebericht: http://motorzeitung.de/news.php?newsid=161751
Weltraum-Star Felix Baumgartner fuhr mit dem VW XL-1 auf die Bühne...
Skoda zeigte neben der neuen Octavia Limousine erstmals die Kombi-Variante
als Weltpremiere. Der Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport ist eigentlich
schon ein Kunstwerk für sich. Legt der französische Künstler Bernar
Venet Hand an, wird die Sache noch etwas exklusiver. Italdesign Guigiaro
schaute mit diesem knallroten Konzeptcar Parcour in die Zukunft. Das
zweisitzige Coupé ist eine Mischung aus Sportwagen und SUV. Bei SEAT gibt
es die Weltpremiere des Kompakt-Kombis Leon SC zu bestaunen. Erstmals ist
ein Leon als Kombi im Programm. Der GT3 ist der sportlichste Ableger des
Porsche 911. Die puristische Straßenversion kommt dank 475 PS Leistung auf
315 Km/h-Höchstgeschwindigkeit. Bentley hat in Genf das neue Topmodell
dabei. Der neue Flying Spur ist auf dem Autosalon erstmals zu sehen.
Lamborghini hat kein Conceptcar mit nach Genf gebracht, sondern baut den
Veneno ganz einmal drei Mal. Allerdings dürfte diese stark limitierte
Auflage des 750 PS starken 12 Zylinders in wenigen Jahren unter
Lamborghini-Sammlern Höchstpreise erzielen. Der Audi A3 hört auf den
Namen „e-tron". Er ist damit der erste Plug-in-Hybrid der Ingolstäder.
Der Elektromotor leistet im Verbund mit einem 150 PS Benziner 204 PS.
Trotzdem liegt der Verbrauch im Mittel bei 1,5 Liter. Rein elektrisch ist
eine Reichweite bis zu 50 Kilometern möglich. Der E-Co-Motion ist eine
Transporter-Studie, die eine Menge Platz bei null Emission bietet. Ein
Elektroantrieb leistet maximal 115 PS und bringt bis zu 800 Kilogramm
Nutzlast in Schwung. Die Reichweite liegt bei maximalen 200 Kilometern.
Eine weitere Weltpremiere gab es schon am Vorabend es Autosalons zu
bewundern. Der Golf Variant hatte seinen ersten öffentlichen Auftritt. Bei
605 Liter Kofferraumvolumen steckt er eine Menge Gepäck weg. Weil sich der
Beifahrersitz zu einer großen ebenen Ladefläche umlegen lässt, finden
nun auch sperrigste Gegenstände Platz. Genf 2013: Volkswagen Group Night

► 2014 Chevrolet Corvette PRODUCTION
owling Green Assembly has produced approximately 1,000 Corvette Stingrays
for customer deliveries. Most of these vehicles are expected to be
delivered to dealers within the next few weeks. To expedite delivery,
vehicles may be shipped out of build sequence, which is a normal part of
any new vehicle launch.
The Bowling Green facility underwent a $131-million upgrade to support
production of the Corvette Stingray, including approximately $52 million
for a new body shop to manufacture the car's all-new aluminum frame
in-house for the first time.
The lightweight aluminum frame is the foundation for the most powerful
standard Corvette ever, with an SAE-certified 455 horsepower (339 kW) and 460
lb-ft of torque (624 Nm) -- and 460 horsepower (343 kW) and 465
lb-ft (630 Nm) with the available performance Exhaust system. It is also the most capable
standard Corvette ever, with Z51-equipped models able to sprint from 0 to
60 in 3.8 seconds, run the quarter-mile in 12 seconds at 119 mph, achieve
1.03g in cornering grip and stop from 60 mph in 107 feet.
Complementing its performance capability with efficiency, the Corvette
Stingray delivers the best fuel economy of any sports car on the market --
an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in city driving and 29 mpg on the highway. No other
car offers more than 455 horsepower and greater than
29 mpg on the highway.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray is the seventh generation of the sports car,
which has been built exclusively at the Bowling Green plant since June
Pricing for the 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe starts at $51,995 including
destination. The Convertible is priced at $56,995 including destination.
Production of the Stingray Convertible will begin by the end of this year.

Brand NEW C7 Corvette Interview
I saw the C7 for the first time and it was great! I am still iffy about the
tail lights, but in person they are so much better than in the pics.This
video is my version of what I think is a good walkaround. The hard top
coupe with the carbon fiber top that was in the trunk was a z51 Vette. The
convertible was also a z51 vette I tried to cover the whole car and "Lady
Stingray" did a good job with the verbal overview. Any questions feel free
to comment below! She said that the car will be in the mid $50,000 range
and it will be out in August!!! Im excited! I also asked her if I could sit
in in, and she said NO :(

First 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray Sold To Rick Hendrick At Barrett-Jackson
Congratulations to Mr. Rick Hendrick for winning the first C7 Corvette
Stingray, Vin #0001, at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona
Details about the new 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray:
(Copied from AOL Autos)
Inside a ramshackle industrial facility in northern Detroit, Chevrolet
unveiled the 2014 Corvette C7, the model's first overhaul in nine years. It
contains a next-generation V8 engine, a small-block LT1 that combines
several advanced technologies into one package and takes drivers from 0 to
60 in less than four seconds.
But for Corvette, this isn't about statistics. "It's more than just a
sports car," said GM design chief Ed Welburn. "It's an emotion. It's a
passion. It is a vehicle that is larger than life."
For those reasons, it was perhaps the perfect vehicle to headline the first
night of the North American International Auto Show. After years of
economic doldrums brought on by the Great Recession, the auto industry
needed a larger-than-life icon to help celebrate more than 15 million units
sold in 2012.
Hundreds of sports-car enthusiasts hooted and hollered Sunday night as
Chevrolet pulled curtains back and revealed the C7 inside the Russell
Industrial Center, which felt more like a nightclub than a factory. They
lingered around the bright-red specimen displayed for more than an hour
after the reveal.
Most of the hard-core already knew some specifics about the model, like
it's 450 horsepower and 450
pound-feet of torque.
Chevrolet added a twist, announcing the C7 will carry the Stingray name, a
nod to the Corvette's early heritage throughout the 1960s.
"It matches the concept they had a couple of years ago, and they really hit
the nail on the head," said John Dunlap, a 27-year-old Corvette owner and
enthusiast who scored a ticket to Sunday's unveiling through the National
Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky.
He drove his 2002 C5 from Minerva, Ohio to Detroit for the unveiling. Years
ago, he was tempted to upgrade to the C6, but was instead glad he waited
for the oft-delayed C7 model.
"They needed to make it sexier and relate it to its heritage," Dunlap said.
"And the interior is going to blow our minds. Hopefully, that's really up
there, the quality of the materials. I'm a touchy-feeling kind of guy, and
the interior, before, was something that everyone knocked on."
Critics had panned the no-frills interior on the C6 model. But that was the
least of Corvette's problems in recent years. There were few brands that
symbolized the auto industry's crisis better.
As General Motors teetered on the brink of bankruptcy, the sports-car
market was ravaged by the economy, losing approximately 41 percent of its
sales from its pre-recession high. Sales of the Corvette, which debuted in
1953, slumped to their lowest numbers in nearly a half-century, falling to
13,164 in 2011.
Worse yet perhaps, the Corvette's more muscular sibling, the Chevy Camaro, gained a ton of
attention after a mid-decade redesign that drove sales as high as 88,248 in
2011. But even as General Motors discarded sacred brands and models in the
midst of its government-backed rescue, the Corvette endured.
"The soul of our company is indeed in Corvette," Mark Reuss, GM's chairman
of North America, said Sunday. "Since 1953, through good times and bad for
this company, there was always the Corvette, demonstrating what it means to
If there are nods to the Corvette's heritage in the new design, there are
also subtle nods to the present competition. Gone are the car's trademark
rounded tail lights, replaced with more boxy lights that resemble those
found on the Camaro.
That's not an update that sits well with many long-time Corvette owners.
"Many individuals are concerned about the rear square lights," said Tommy
DeLuca, who owns a 2005 Corvette. "My concern would be how to differentiate
the tail lights from other GM cars. The tail lights should be different so
that anyone looking at the car will know it is a Corvette."
The C7 is one of 13 new Chevrolet products that will hit U.S. show rooms
this year. Like many of the others, it arrives lighter than past models.
Engineers said Sunday they had trimmed 90 pounds from the car, and used
carbon fiber on even the base trim level.
Pricing was not announced Sunday night, but it is expected the base model
of the C7 will cost more than the $49,600 of the base C6 predecessor. Fuel
economy is expected to reach 18 miles per gallon in the city and 29 mpg on
Combine the overhauled interior with the substantial exterior changes with
the structural differences and drop in weight, and it's a dramatically
"It's a bigger departure from the C6 to the C7 than I think it was from the
C5 to the C6," Dunlap said. "It has a more exotic look, a more sexy look.
They're trying to get a lot of young people involved, and I think this is
the car to do it."
2014 C7 highway testing
Had a little fun with a 2014 C7 Corvette on the highway, it was allot faster than my C5. My young daughter
worked the camera while I drove. The driver smiled and waved and had just
as much as fun as we did.
2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51! Testing the New High Tech Vette! - Ignition Ep. 77
Finally! On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago gets behind the wheel of
Chevrolet's hotly anticipated 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51, the most
technologically advanced production Corvette ever made. First, Carlos heads
to the test track to put the reborn 460hp V8-powered Stingray through the
full barrage of Motor Trend's instrumented tests: 0-60 mph acceleration,
quarter mile, 60-0 mph braking, lateral acceleration, and figure-eight.
The raw data backs up what Carlos can already feel from the driver's seat -
the 2014 Corvette goes fast, stops quick and handles corners with ease.
Then, its off to the winding roads of Central California to see how the C7
Vette's continuously variable-locking differential, magnetic damping, rev
matching and other high-tech features perform in the real world.
