Martin Milner and George Maharis rode a sleek, low-slung, long-hooded Chevrolet Corvette, wandering from episode to episode in the popular early-1960s series "Route 66." Jan and Dean and the Beach Boys sang about the archetypal sports car. Later, Prince did as well in "Little Red Corvette." Movies associated with fast cars have also long showed off Corvettes, ...

The 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 has been spied several times in the past year, in camouflage and in various stages of undress, and also alongside what we think will be the mid-engine Corvette that will succeed it. But now the ZR1 has been spotted on a field trip to the mother of all racetracks, the Nürburgring.

With the black camo gone, we can see just how aggressive it...

Frequently, some of the most overlooked parts of a car are its tires. I'm sure you know that maintaining the tire pressure is one of the most important things you can do. However, do you know what all the numbers and data on the sidewall of a tire tells us about that tire?

Four small patches of rubber are all that keep your ton and a half Corvette going where you want as it rockets down the road. The horsepower and weight of some C2 and early C3 Corvettes hopelessly outmatched their original tires. If you’ve driven a 425-horsepower Corvette wide-open throttle on 7.75x15 tires you know what I mean. The match between tire and vehi...

The single most expensive part of any automobile is typically going to be the engine.

Since its birth in 1953, the Chevrolet Corvette has been America’s sports car. That common refrain is not hyperbole: For most of that time, the Corvette was literally the only American-born sports car you could buy. Also for the better part of the past 60-some years, the Corvette has been a speed machine, offering similar performance to purebred European sports cars but for ...

Today's Corvette is the modern-day champion of the pushrod engine, its 6.2-liter V8 eschewing multi-cam nonsense for one bump-stick living deep inside the vee of the cylinders. Well, that could all change very soon, with a dual-overhead-cam engine potentially slated for the Corvette as early as 2018. Will this be the new LT5?

It took 25 years to create their first “special edition” Corvette. Although the Silver Anniversary Paint was a $399 paint-only option in 1978, when combined with Aluminum Wheels shod with the White Letter P255/60R-15 SBR tires, this combo made for a fine-looking Corvette. Four years later, Chevrolet rolled out the 1982 Collector E...
