The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is currently available as a hatchback
coupe only. The convertible, with its power-operated soft-top roof, is
expected to arrive in the spring of 2014.
There are two main trim levels, base and Z51. Within each, however, there
are three sub-trims: 1LT, 2LT and 3LT. The base Corvette 1LT comes standard
with 18-inch front wheels and 19-inch rear wheels, xenon headlights, heated
mirrors, a removable roof panel, dual-zone automatic climate control,
cruise control, keyless ignition and entry, leather upholstery, eight-way
power front seats and a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel.
Electronic features include OnStar, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity,
an 8-inch touchscreen display, Chevy's MyLink electronics interface, a
rearview camera and a nine-speaker Bose sound system with two USB ports, an
auxiliary audio jack, an SD card reader and satellite radio.
The Corvette Stingray Z51 1LT further adds 19-inch front/20-inch rear
wheels, exterior aero trim, performance brakes and suspension tuning,
revised transmission gear
ratios (manual transmission only), a limited-slip electronic rear
differential, a rear differential cooler and dry-sump oiling for the V8
All Corvette Stingray 2LT models come with auto-dimming driver-side and
rearview mirrors, a 10-speaker sound system with HD radio, a head-up
display, a cargo shade, driver memory settings, heated and ventilated seats
and power lumbar seat adjustments. The 3LT is the same but with upgraded
leather upholstery and a navigation system.
For the Corvette Z51, adaptive suspension dampers are optional and come
bundled with an upgraded traction management system. Other options for the
whole Corvette Stingray line include a dual-mode Exhaust system and competition-style seats (late
availability). All coupes come with a painted and removable carbon-fiber
roof panel, and if you choose, you can order your roof panel either with
exposed carbon fiber or transparent.
Powertrains and Performance
Under the Corvette's hood is a 6.2-liter V8 driving the rear wheels.
Maximum power is rated at 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque -- up from 436 and
428 last year, respectively. Don't be unimpressed by what appear to be
modest power gains, though; the new engine adds roughly 50 lb-ft of torque
below 4,000 rpm over the outgoing model. With its optional dual-mode Exhaust, the Corvette gets a slight power
Boost to 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of
The new V8 now features direct fuel injection, variable valve timing and
cylinder deactivation. Fuel economy should be very similar to the previous
car, which stood at 16 mpg city/26 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined with the
For the new car, a new seven-speed manual transmission is offered alongside
a conventional six-speed automatic. The new manual uses the same gear ratios as the previous car,
with the 7th gear acting as a tall cruising gear to incrementally improve
fuel economy. The manual also comes with automatic rev-matching for
upshifts and downshifts, which greatly simplifies and smoothes out shifting
during enthusiastic driving.

National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green Kentucky
Images taken at the museum, which is also the site of the only remaining
Corvette factory, I believe.
The first music selection was the one that gave me the idea for the show.
The second one I felt was obligatory. The third was used because I like to
use uncommon version of common songs. See my Railpark show
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ei_-_h94IeA The last selection was for
giggles and .I just felt that "Little Red Corvette" was just a little too
easy to use.
The vintage Vette picture in watercolor at about 4:21 is altered to hide
the reflection of MY BELLY in the fender!
1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 427 Big-block Four-Speed
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1967 Chevrolet Corvette
coupe. It's powered by the original, numbers-matching 427 Big-block, rated
at 390 horsepower.
All the power is sent through the durable Muncie four-speed manual trans.
This car has been kept as original as possible. It was owned by the
original owner all the way up until 2008. This is a really nice survivor.
Thanks for taking a look!

2001 Z06 Mallett Hammer Recovery
The last of the "Great 8" Corvettes has been pulled from the depths of the
40 foot wide by 60 foot deep sinkhole that collapsed within the Skydome
building of the National Corvette Museum exactly eight weeks ago, marking
the end of the first phase of rebuilding.
The 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 was one of two Corvettes that's whereabouts
were initially unknown after the sinkhole happened. The car was finally
discover this Monday, upside down with the nose pointing towards the red
Spire in the center of the room. It is, by far, the most heavily damaged of
all eight Corvettes.
