Some Chevrolet Corvette Z06 owners who track their cars have notoriously experienced cooling issues. According to Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter, those problems should be solved, and the even more powerful 2019 Corvette ZR1 shouldn’t experience them at all.

Juechter told Motor Authority that Chevrolet made continuing improvements to the Z06 fo...

Many car buyers don’t think about residual value, especially when it comes to buying a car simply for pleasure, but there’s some good news for Chevrolet Corvette owners.

According to a study from iSeeCars, the Corvette falls below the industry average with regards to depreciation. The study looked at 3.6 million new cars sold in 2013 to cal...

At the dawn of what would become Corvette Racing, there are names and models that stand out as the large, foundational stones that have helped build Corvette into the impressive auto that it is, both on the street and the track.

One such nameplate that still resonates from those early years when Corvette was working out its existence as a performance sportsc...

Automotive refinishing technology has change drastically in the past 20 years. Heck, in some ways, it changes every year. New tools are invented, old tools are improved, and paint products are updated to keep up with the demands of the industry.

It’s hard to keep up with it all. Unless you work in the automotive painting industry, chances are much of the...

Chevrolet’s (worst-kept) secret mid-engine supercar has been spotted on a race track in Germany, in what appears to be production form, four months ahead of its anticipated debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

The coupe was visiting the 13-mile-long Nurburgring race track, which is a frequent destination for automotive development teams and where lap times are...

Underneath the camouflaged exterior, the proportions of the C8 Corvette prototype are obviously that of a mid-engined machine, and the exhaust note — quite muted by Corvette standards — suggests the powerplant might be turbocharged, which has been backed up in the proposed list of engines here. However, there are stringent sound restrictions at ...

Automotive batteries and charging systems were once a simple to understand and package. In the good old days of 25 cent-a-gallon gasoline, you had a 45-amp alternator – or perhaps a really lame 25 to 30-amp generator – that only had to keep up with an AM rad...

As the former owner of two new C4 Corvettes (an ’86 and an ’89), I’ve often wondered what happened to those two cars that both left my garage a mere couple of years after purchase – with less than 15,000 miles each on the odometer.

Are they still running or have they been relegated to a junkyard somewhere? I’ll probably never know.


Well, the...

The fifth-generation (C5) Corvette was an extremely advanced sports car when it debuted, with some radical changes compared to the car that preceded it. One of the biggest changes was the C5's use of a rear-mounted transaxle, which made for better weight distribution and a roomier cabin. It's a drivetrain layout that's been a signature feature of the Corvette ev...

In the mid-1980s, as U.S. automakers were kicking the Malaise-Era dust off their tired boots, America’s Sports Car took a European vacation and returned with a distinctly Italian accent. Di cosa stai parlando? It’s the unmistakable 1984 Bertone Ramarro.

The Chevy Corvette is the last true sports car to use a pushrod V8, and you might not think that's a good thing. After all, overhead-cam engines have been the standard for decades at this point, so why would you use an old-school cam-in-block engine today? Especially in a Corvette, which has to compete with the best from Porsche, BMW, and everyone else?

The Corvette is 65 years old. Take a moment to let that sink in. Typically, in your sixties, you slow down. You relax and if you're lucky, settle into a nice long retirement. The 2018 Z06 Carbon 65 convertible is doing none of those things.

If anything, Chevrolet has produced one of the best Corvettes ever. It's fast (duh), but thanks to lightweight materials an...
