Tadge Juechter, executive chief engineer, walks us around the 7th generation Corvette to show us the perfect balance of technology, design and performance that makes it worthy of the iconic Stingray designation. To learn more about the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray, visit http://www.corvettestingray2014.com According to Motor Trend, GM executives have been planning the next-generation (C7) Corvette since 2007. The car was originally planned for the 2011 model year, but was delayed, and currently expected to arrive in fall 2013 as a 2014 model year.[54] Mid-engine and rear-engine layouts had been considered, but the front-engine, rear-wheel drive (RWD) platform will continue to keep costs lower and the engine compact.[55] The Corvette C7 will come equipped with Chevrolet's upcoming Gen V small block V8 that features a number of technical advancements including an aluminum block and heads and a revised combustion system. The engine will retain the pushrod, overhead valve design configuration. The new 5.5 L V8 made its world debut in the C6.R racecar. Power will likely total 440 hp (328 kW), an improvement over the 436 horsepower available currently in the Corvette C6, but with improved fuel economy due to the new engine's smaller size and advanced features. The engine is part of a new $890 million program committed for vehicles across the GM lineup.[dead link][56] A twin-turbo V6 engine may or may not be available as an option.[54] Car and Driver said in April 2011, "We anticipate change in the C7 will be apparent at a glance, even to casual observers ... it seems certain the coupe will feature a split rear window -- a la the one-year Sting Ray coupe of 1963. In this case it will be an optional feature."[57] An interior makeover is also expected with upgraded materials with seats comparing favorably with the buckets found in Porsches and BMWs. The front-engine Y platform will be essentially unchanged from the C6 with an improvement expected in steering linearity and feel. The Z06 and ZR1 will continue, while the Grand Sport may become the base model. The C7 should hit dealerships in fall of 2013.[57] On October 18,2012, GM has made an official news announcement and confirmed that the seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette will debut on Sunday evening, Jan. 13, 2013, in Detroit. Chevrolet also showed the new Crossed Flags logo for the new 2014 Corvette. Over the years the Corvette has won awards from automobile publications as well as organizations such as the Society of Automotive Engineers. Automobile Magazine ranked the 1963--1967 Sting Ray first on their "100 Coolest Cars" list, above the Dodge Viper GTS, the Porsche 911, and others.[58] Sports Car International placed the Corvette at number 5 on their list of the "Top Sports Cars of the 1960s". Hot Rod magazine in its March 1986 issue selected the 1973--74 Corvette LS6 454 as one of the "10 most collectable muscle cars" in the company of the 1968--70 Chevelle, 1970 'Cuda, 1970 Challenger, 1966--67 Fairlane, 1968--70 AMX, 1970 Camaro Z28, 1968--70 GTO, 1968--69 Charger, and 1967--68 Mustang.[59] Car and Driver readers selected the Corvette "Best all around car" nine out of eleven years in Car and Driver's Reader's Choice Polls including 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, and 1975. Car and Driver magazine selected the Corvette for its annual Ten Best list fifteen times: the C4 from 1985 through 1989, the C5 in 1998, 1999, and 2002 through 2004, and the C6 from 2005 through 2009. Motor Trend magazine named the Corvette Car of the Year in 1984 and 1998. Society of Automotive Engineers publication Automotive Engineering International selected the 1999 Corvette Convertible, (along with the Mercedes-Benz S500) "Best Engineered Car of the 20th century".[60] The 2005 Corvette was nominated for the North American Car of the Year award and was named "Most Coveted Vehicle" in the 2006 Canadian Car of the Year contest. U.S. News & World Report[61] selected the 2010 Corvette the "Best Luxury Sports Car for the Money". A Corvette Stingray Anniversary concept car was unveiled at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show, fifty years after the Sting Ray racer-concept of 1959.[66] The vehicle was based on a combination of the 1963 Sting Ray and the 1968 Stingray. The new Stingray concept appears in the 2009 movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, as the vehicle mode of the character Sideswipe.[67] A convertible/speedster version was used for the same character in the 2011 sequel, Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

It stretches the performance envelope for Corvette Z06 with unprecedented levels of aerodynamic downforce, at least 625 horsepower from an all-new supercharged Corvette Z06 engine, and an all-new, high-performance Corvette Z06 eight-speed automatic transmission -- all building on the advanced driver technologies introduced on the Corvette Stingray 2014. "The new Corvette Z06 delivers levels of performance, technology and design that rival the most exotic supercars in the world," said Mark Reuss, president, General Motors North America. "And the Corvette Z06 leverages the engineering expertise of GM, offering the choice of two world-class transmissions, Corvette Z06 supercar performance without supercar fuel consumption and technologies that make it easier to fully enjoy the incredible experience of driving it." The 2015 Corvette Z06 model is the first Corvette Z06 to offer a supercharged engine, an automatic transmission and, thanks to a stronger aluminum frame, a removable Corvette Z06 roof panel. The new, supercharged Corvette Z06 6.2L engine is expected to deliver at least 625 horsepower (466 kW), and can be matched with either a Corvette Z06 seven-speed manual or an all-new, high-performance Corvette Z06 eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters for manual control. The Corvette Z06 aluminum frame carries over from the Corvette Stingray and will be used essentially unchanged for the Corvette Racing C7.R. A track-focused Corvette Z07 Performance Package adds unique components for true aerodynamic downforce, Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires for enhanced grip, and Brembo carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors that improve braking performance and contribute to greater handling through reduced unsprung weight. Although development testing is ongoing, the Corvette Z07 package has already recorded some of the fastest lap times ever for a Corvette, surpassing even the ZR1. "The Corvette Z06 is a great example of the technology transfer between racing and production Corvettes," said Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer. "First, we took what we learned on the Corvette Racing C6.R and applied that to the all-new Corvette Stingray. Then, using the Stingray as a foundation, the Corvette Z06 and C7.R were developed to push the envelope of performance on the street and the track." The LT4 engine also has several unique features designed to support its higher output and the greater cylinder pressures created by forced induction, including: • Rotocast A356T6 aluminum cylinder heads that are stronger and handle heat better than conventional heads • Lightweight titanium intake valves and machined connecting rods for reduced reciprocating mass • High 10.0:1 compression ratio -- for a forced-induction engine -- enhances performance and efficiency and is enabled by direct injection • Forged aluminum pistons with unique, stronger structure to ensure strength under high cylinder pressures • Stainless steel Exhaust headers and an aluminum balancer that are lighter than their LT1 counterparts • Standard dry-sump oiling system with larger cooler capacity than Z51; used with dual-pressure-control oil pump. Like the Stingray, the Driver Mode Selector tailors up to a dozen features of the Z06 to suit the driver's environment, including: • Corvette Z06 Launch control: Available in Track mode for manual and automatic transmissions, providing maximum off-the-line acceleration • Corvette Z06 Active handling (StabiliTrak electronic stability control): A "competitive" setting is available in Track mode and is more suited for on-track conditions. It can also be disabled, giving the driver complete control • Corvette Z06 Traction control: Weather mode tailors traction control and engine torque for driving in inclement conditions • Performance Traction Management: Available in Track mode and offers five settings of torque reduction and brake intervention for track driving

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 tonight. 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 win." 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 the highway. Combine the overhauled interior with the substantial exterior changes with the structural differences and drop in weight, and it's a dramatically different car. "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.
