Zora Arkus-Duntov’s Last Public Interview

He put the ‘Z’ in the Corvette Z06, he was a legend in the automotive industry. See now his last public interview.

C8 Corvette Falls Off the Lift at a Chevy Dealership

By Keith Cornett June 1, 2020 It was just about a month ago that CorvetteBlogger contributor Jeremy Welborn offered up this video on the proper jack and lift points for the 2020 Corvette after witnessing a video showing the C8 Corvette that was lifted in the wrong place. Because the weight distribution is now 40/60 with the engine behind the driver, you have to have the jack or lift mounted to the chassis locations properly or the unthinkable could...

Hennessey-tuned 2020 Chevy Corvette Stingray hits 205.1 mph with nitrous oxide

Hennessey Performance Engineering wasted no time getting to work on the mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

That speed was reached at the Continental Tire Proving Ground in Uvalde, Texas, and May 8, and was confirmed with a VBox data logger, according to HPE.

Company Releases Lambo Door Kit For 2020 Corvette C8

Sam McEachern — May 11, 2020 The mid-engine Corvette C8 appears more like an exotic vehicle than any of the Vettes that have preceded it. While car enthusiasts will certainly know a Corvette C8 when they see one, we wouldn’t be surprised if some less informed folks mistake the C8 for a Lamborghini or a Ferrari. For those owners who want to lean into the exotic look of the Corvette C8 even more – and perhaps fool even more...

No, GM Won’t Stop Making the 2020 Corvette—But It Could Be One of the Rarest Ever Made

Thanks to two major production delays, only 2,700 examples of the new ‘Vette had rolled off the line by the time production was halted at General Motors’s Bowling Green plant in March because of...
