The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette

To all the Sports car enthusiasts-we have some exciting news for you! Stats on the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette were accidentally released early and we were able to find out some great information!

Here’s what we know about the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette….

It will have 450 horsepower which is estimated to provide a speed acceleration of 0-60 in 4 seconds. It will also have a top speed in excess of 185 mph.

Chevrolet’s designers will address one of the biggest criticisms of previous Corvettes, the somewhat lackluster cabin by redesigning the interior feel and comfort.

The interior will feature premium leather surfaces and hand stitched seams. In describing the interior, Chevrolet boasts about the new materials used and explains that every surface is crafted to suit the driver.

What about the gauges? Glad you asked.

A traditional speedometer will sit next to a digital tachometer. Next to THAT will be an information screen providing stats such as engine and oil temps. Also provided will be oil and tire pressure and battery charge, everything a true sports car enthusiast would want to know while on the road.

Here’s what we don’t know about the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette…

What it looks like.

BUT…

The GM Service Website revealed the Corvettes’ front end and that fits well with the car’s expected look. Plus, using Corvette convertible prototypes as the basis, illustrations go a long way in showing the dramatic new shape of the fully redesigned sports car.

Have a look.

58 Chevrolet Corvette – Want to own one?

Do you want to know what a cool car is? A really cool car?

It’s the 1958 Chevrolet Corvette.

From the design to the look and feel of it, this car radiates ‘cool’.

Here is a little background history of the Chevrolet Corvette…

The year was 1958 and General Motors was celebrating its 50th Anniversary with the debut of this two seater sports car. Designed by Harley Earl, known as the father of car design, this car not only looked good but was one of the fastest cars of its day. The engine was capable of 290 horses and the speedometer went up to 160 mph. There wasn’t a car that year that had a more powerful engine. It was manufactured in St. Louis and was offered in six colors.

And the heater was still optional.

I told you THAT story to tell you THIS one…

You can own this car. Yes that’s right!

A 1958 vintage Chevy Corvette will be auctioned off at the upcoming 2013 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale,

And it’s all for a great cause-Habitat for Humanity. Habitat (as it’s known) is an international, non-governmental, non-profit organization. It’s devoted to building “simple, decent, and affordable” housing for people who can’t afford that on their own.

The car’s current owner, GM President and CEO, Dan Akerson, has said, “I love the car” and adds, “the need for Habitat for Humanity is so great that I thought, Wow, maybe I could really make a difference in a whole different way.”

Now a bit of HIS story…

He made a personal donation of $1 million in February 2012 to launch a three-year Habitat for Humanity program to benefit families in a Detroit neighborhood. The proceeds from this Corvette auction will go to that project as well. And the car he’s offering? Only 510 of them from 1958 were made wearing the same Turquoise finish. And he has kept the vehicle in showroom condition.

If you are interested in the purchase of this ‘58 Chevrolet Corvette and a little piece of history – check out the event that is scheduled to kick off Friday, January 18, 2013.

CHEVY SHOWS OFF AN ELECTRIC SPARK

With gas mileage on everyone’s minds, Chevrolet is addressing that concern with their launching of the all electric 2014 Spark.  This vehicle has many things going for it but its’ dash from 0-60 in less than 8 seconds and its’ ability to recharge (to 80 percent capacity) in about 20 minutes are both eye openers.

“What we think customers will enjoy most is how fun the Spark EV is to drive, ” said Chuck Russell, chief engineer for the car.  He also says power is available at every stage of the drive. Chevrolet says it wants to provide an exciting option for customers  looking for an EV that’s as much fun to drive as it is environmentally responsible.
