Chevrolet Corvette: News, Reviews and Pricing

The Chevrolet Corvette is the original American sports car, serving as a competitor to the greatest performance cars from around the world since the 1950s. The new C8 Corvette is expected to be unveiled on July 18th. The 7th and latest generation of Corvette has really put GM back on top in regards to being America’s sports car. It completely redesigned the interior using much better quality materials and making it feel as good as it looks.

The C7 Corvette lineup consists of 4 models. The Stingray, Grand Sport, Z06, and ZR1. Each one increases in horsepower, handling, and aerodynamics as you move up the models. The Nürburgring track times were recently released for all 4 of these models with the fastest one being the ZR1 which lapped the ring in 7:04. Jim Mero (previous suspension engineer for GM) stated the ZR1 could have had a 6:59 second if he was able to drive the car on properly warmed tires. This time puts the C7 Corvette ZR1 into supercar territory.

The 2020 C8 Corvette Ride Height Can Be Adjusted In A Similar Way To Previous Generation Corvettes

One of the first mods that most Corvette owners do is turn the bolt on the composite leaf spring to eliminate or reduce unsightly wheel gap. With the C8 Corvette it is still possible to do this even though the composite leaf spring is not making an appearance with this generation Corvette.

The 2020 C8 Corvette Starts Under Sixty-Thousand Dollars, But Not For Long

It's fair to say that Chevrolet earned a "whoa" moment on the C8 Corvette reveal night when they said the mid engine 2020 Corvette Stingray would cost under $60,000 and then later showed the starting price to be $59,995. The joy of a sub sixty-thousand dollar car may be short lived, though.
