  1. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher - GM-Trucks.com Februrary 6th, 2019 This is the first of two GM-Trucks.com 2020 C8 Corvette exclusives. CLICK HERE TO READ PART TWO Images of the C8 mid-engine Corvette logo have been out in the open since late November. They showed up on a leaked key fob undergoing certification last fall with the FCC. The internet has run wild with speculation since but no-one has gotten their hands on a real digital version of the 2020 Corvette's logo. Only enthusiast renders based on the leaked fob.... Until now. GM-Trucks.com has the first exclusive look at the official logo in digital format. We won't comment specifically on how we obtained it. We can say it was obtained from publicly available files by a third party and passed along to us. Enjoy! Tomorrow, we'll give you the very first look at the 2020 Corvette's dash cluster start up animation.
  2. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher - GM-Trucks.com Februrary 7th, 2019 Yesterday we brought you an exclusive look at the new logo for the 2020 C8 Corvette in a digital high-resolution format. Although the logo had been previously rendered through a leaked key fob passing through FCC certification, GM-Trucks.com gave you the very first official version of the emblem in digital format. Today, we've got part two and it's even better: A brand new, never before seen, blacked out version of the 2020 Corvette's iconic emblem The corresponding gauge cluster startup animation Your first look at the brand new Corvette script First things first, what's a startup animation? Well, these days a lot of new GM products use an LCD display in the gauge cluster, or even use a display as the entire gauge cluster. The C7 Corvette (and now C8) uses a large 8-ish inch screen for most of the gauge cluster. When you open the door, the gauge cluster "starts up" showing an animation, usually with the Chevrolet logo or in this case the Corvette's logo and script. Our 2019 Silverado LTZ has a Chevy Logo animate on it's 4 inch gauge cluster display. This is a C7's Gauge Cluster. See that huge screen? The C8 is going to have a variation of that. Maybe the same, maybe larger. Interesting to note, this crossed flags emblem is not the same as the logo we leaked yesterday. Instead of a chrome surround it sports a blacked out trim. It looks mean, nasty, and one may presume it just may be destined for a performance variant of the Corvette. Is this the emblem for the rumored Zora model? We won't comment specifically on how we obtained this animation. We can say it was collected from publicly available file by a third party and passed along to us. This is the gauge cluster start up animation for the up-level (Zora?) 2020 C8 Corvette Here's a closer look at that blacked out emblem variation And here's a closer look at the 2020 Corvette Logo Script- which has evolved from it's C7 form Here's the C7 logo and script for comparison What do you think? Are you excited for the Corvette to go mid-engine? Do you think Chevy's graphical updates to the logo and script are living up to the hype of the 2020 Corvette?
  3. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 9/4/2018 Sure, we're a truck website. But gosh darn do we love a nice Corvette. With rumors swirling over the past few years that Chevy would move to a mid-engine configuration in some form during the Corvette's eighth generation, heads have been exploding trying to find out more. We've wanted more. You've wanted more. Will there be a mid-engine vette and what will it look like? We just want to know. We just HAVE to know. And now... we do. Yesterday our spy photographer contacted with some mind blowing photos and we couldn't wait to share them with you today. We purchased the rights to post them here immediately. Behold, Spy Shots of the all new 2020 C8 Corvette undergoing testing at the Nurburgring in Germany. There are OVER 75 photographs. So, we put them all in a image gallery here. Some of our favorites are posted below but to see them all click on to the image gallery. Expect this all new mid-engine Corvette to debut in the next year and go on sale in 2020. 2020 C8 Corvette Spy Shots
  4. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 7-31-2018 Two recent studies done by our friends at iSeeCars.com have looked at two different aspects of vehicle ownership. The first study looked at which vehicles are driven the most. That report also had information on which were driven the least and the Corvette came out on “top” in that listing. The newest study casts that in an even more interesting light. The new study looked at which vehicles owners keep the longest. Interestingly, the Corvette was again at one end of the Bell curve. It is the “passenger car” that owners keep the longest. iSeeCars.com’s CEO, Phong Ly explains the Corvette’s long average stay, saying, “Sports cars tend to not be primary vehicles, which is why owners might hold on to them longer than the average car since they are not subjected to as much wear and tear.” Do we have any Corvette owners in the group? If so, how long have you had yours and why do you think the Corvette is the longest held, least driven car? Feel free to chime in if you haven't gotten your 'Vette yet too.
  5. How do you all feel about the mid eng corvette or the looks of it i thing it looks like a Ferrari to me from the spy shots
  6. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 6-4-2018 GM’s Executive Vice President of Global Product Development, Mark Reuss, had the unfortunate and embarrassing experience of crashing a pace car this weekend at the Detroit Grand Prix Indycar event. Reuss lost control of the Corvette ZR1 in a corner with uneven pavement. The vehicle appeared to oversteer and corrections sent Reuss into the wall nose first. Thankfully, Reuss and a track official in the passenger seat were uninjured. Members of GM-Trucks.com staff have met Mark Reuss on multiple occasions and have shared racetracks with him. Mr. Reuss is “guy’s-guy” who is very easy to speak to. We’ve had the pleasure of sharing meals with him and informally discussing a wide range of topics. Mr. Reuss has also granted Zane Merva of GM-Trucks.com formal interviews to give updates on truck developments. At the track events we visited, Reuss took advantage of media days to get to know and hear from members of the media during important Chevrolet and Cadillac performance model launches. He also took advantage of the open track to turn hot laps in the products he helped bring to market. His competency behind the wheel of 700 hp + cars is not in question. Mr. Reuss also knows this particular track, having driven it on many occasions before this event. GM issued this statement on the accident: “We are thankful that there were no serious injuries. Both the pace car driver and the series official were taken to the infield care center, where they were checked, cleared and released. It is unfortunate that this incident happened. Many factors contributed, including weather and track conditions. The car’s safety systems performed as expected.” Mr. Reuss posted a comment to his personal Facebook page thanking friends, family, and GM fans for their support. Since the post was not public, but only shown to his FB friends, we have opted not to reproduce it in its entirety as other media have chosen to do. Reuss apologizes in the post, and thanks his well-wishers, but says he let people down. We don’t feel let down. If a pace car isn’t a real track car, and if it isn’t going to be driven hard, then what’s the point?
  7. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 11-30-2017 Chevrolet pulled the cloth off a new Corvette ZR1 at the sunny LA Auto show this week. This is the first ZR1 convertible since the original 1970 model-year ZR1. The new convertible ZR1 starts at $5K above the coupe with an opening price tag of about $124,000. “The new Corvette ZR1 convertible is a supercar in all respects,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Few others can challenge the ZR1 convertible’s power and speed while offering the exhilaration of top-down motoring.” The new lightweight convertible top adds less than 60 pounds and can be lowered and raised remotely and at speeds up to 30 MPH. As we recently reported, the Corvette ZR1 has a top speed of up to 212 MPH depending upon the aero package chosen and comes with a 755 hp V8 engine. GM plans to auction off the first ZR1 at a Barrett-Jackson event to benefit the veterans’ support group, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.

  9. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 7-12-2017 Baseball's 2017 All-Star Game MVP, Robinson Canó, chose a new 2017 Corvette Grand Sport over a new 2017 Chevy Colorado ZR2 last night following the game. Financially, this is a sound move. The Grand Sport starts at $67K and the ZR2 ends at about $48k. Money aside, which would you have opted to drive away if you had the choice? In case you missed the game, Seatle's Canó, who went 1-for-2 in the contest with a 10th inning home run, RBI and a run scored. Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet, commented on the game, saying, “Robinson Canó turned in a tremendous performance tonight and is an excellent example to all baseball fans, and especially our kids, that hustle, determination, and teamwork are what wins, and that is why Chevrolet is proud to present the MVP award." Chevy didn't say if the ZR2 has a diesel engine or not, let's assume it had whatever you would prefer. What's your choice? Vette, or ZR2?
  10. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 6-7-2017 Mazda Miata V8 conversions usually seem to use Ford engines for some reason. Ford has made some great V8s over the past century, but we'll take a Corvette engine any day. So did James and Janna Weeks. While Janna was serving in Afganistan, James began a resto-mod project for her in honor of her late mother, who they had inherited the NA-generation Miata from. James told us that the Corvette engine was from another project and it replaced a turbocharged 1.8-liter engine that was the first engine upgrade to Zoom, the car you see above. James told that Zoom us now sports a 5.7-liter LS6 V8 with modified heads, intake, and cam. The transmission is a T56 6-speed. The rear end is a Ford 8.8 with 3.08 gears. Zoom once ran to 156 MPH on the half-mile on a closed course. Then James and Janna turned on the nitrous and Zoom posted 165 MPH. A huge V8 in place of a tiny 4-banger usually disrupts the balance of a conversion car. That is unless the engine coming out is iron and the one going in is aluminum. James says that the whole conversion added about 300 pounds total to the weight of the car and that the front to rear weight distribution is only 1% changed to 52/48.
  11. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 5-9-2017 General motors is sitting on a lot of inventory right now. Camaros and Corvettes, in particular, have started to pile up at dealerships and Chevy needs to make room for 2018 model year inventory that will arrive this fall. Cue the discounts. Carsdirect.com is reporting that Chevy will discount the Corvette of your choice by 10%. Now, given the steep discounts we periodically report on trucks, that may not seem very impressive, but like many factory discounts, it can serve as a starting point in negotiations, not an ending. Also, with Corvettes at a $100K plus price point at the high end of the trims, that can equate to a discount of as much as five figures. According to our source, the promotion runs through May 31st.
  12. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 12-27-2016 Death, taxes, and a pushrod V8 in a Corvette. At least until this year. According to documents found by MotorTrend, a new dual overhead camshaft V8 engine will soon be in the Corvette and its name is LT5. There was an LT5 with cams on top once before in the 1990s, but it's been a while since we have seen that. MotorTrend speculates that this might be the heart of the white whale - the mid-engine Corvette's engine. We doubt it. We spotted this story at Torque News, where Patrick Rall (Who lives just outside the GM proving grounds) goes into finite detail about what the engine could be, and what it most likely isn't. The documents say 6.2-liters, aluminum, and not much more. Both publications doubt this is the new base engine for the 2018 "Vette. That is because the base engine appears to also be listed in the service documents that are the basis of all this intrigue. Nor is the engine said to have forced induction (turbocharging or supercharging). That makes it unlikely to be the engine in any top-spec Corvette trim. What say you GM-Trucks.com faithful? Is this dual overhead camshaft engine just a ruse or misunderstanding? Could it signal some kind of high-RPM, normally-aspirated engine for a special Corvette? Image Note: That's not the engine in the story being built. Can anyone guess without cheating what that engine is?
  13. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 11-21-2016 General Motors' Chevy division took three of the slots on this year's Car and Driver 10-Best awards list. The Bolt, Camaro, and Corvette Grand Sport all eanred thse positions by being among the best cars in the world, not just their own categories. Car and Driver (CD) say that to win an entrant must "...cost less than $80,000 (anything pricier should be excellent by default), and they must be either a returning winner or all-new or significantly revised. Winning isn’t easy, however—in order to take home a trophy, a vehicle must offer good value, excel at its given mission, and, critically, deliver a pleasurable driving experience." CD says that the Corvette Z06 may have won last year, but the car exceeded the price cap. Commenting on the win this year, CD said, "Enter the Grand Sport, which mates the regular Corvette powertrain to the chassis of the mighty Z06 while avoiding a major price increase. You can park a GS in your driveway for as little as $66,445, exactly $10,000 more than the base car and nearly $15,000 less than the Z06." Read CD's explanation of why the Camaro made the list and you will be surprised to see that the magazing talks mostly about the Mercedes-Benx C63 S coupe. You see, CD says that Mercedes basically copied the Camaro's formula. One little detail is that the Camaro is less that half the money, has similar performance, and is arguably more reliable. They said "The almost identically sized Camaro nearly matches the Merc’s accelerative performance. The SS 1LE bawls to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and through the quarter in 12.4 seconds at 116 mph. It would be slightly quicker if it were equipped with the company’s eight-speed automatic, but the 1LE is available only with a six-speed manu­al. We aren’t complaining. The Camaro’s big 6.2-liter V-8 is down on horsepower to the boosted Mercedes V-8, but because the Camaro’s 3747-pound curb weight undercuts the C63’s by 355 pounds, the two have near-identical power-to-weight ratios. And bear in mind that these are effectively the same numbers that a standard Camaro SS can achieve for as little as $38,000." The Bolt's win is perhaps the easiest to justify. This vehicle calls BS on the concept that EVs don't sell because they are (were) too high-priced and too short in range. Inabouty a week we find out if that was true, or if people simply don't want these cars. Interestingly, the Bolt was not a shoe-in for its win. CD wanted to compare the Bolt to the Tesla, but CD found out what most automotivbe media already know - Tesla is not a real car company. They can;t produce enough cars to use as loaners for press fleets, nor can they make enough to satisfy their ornder backlog. Perhaps a good problem to have - unless of course Tesla plans to make 500K Model 3 cars in about a year (...Sorry - had to stop for aminute due to uncontrobale laughter). CD put it this way, "The Bolt was also the only EV in this year’s test. We would love to tell you how it compared with the pricier and glitzier Tesla Model S, but despite our repeated requests, Tesla refused to supply us with a car and thereby failed to defend its 10Best berth." Read the full CD report here, or buy the magazine. "The Bolt was also the only EV in this year’s test. We would love to tell you how it compared with the pricier and glitzier Tesla Model S, but despite our repeated requests, Tesla refused to supply us with a car and thereby failed to defend its 10Best berth."
  14. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 11-22-2016 If all you want for Christmas is a Corvette, Costco may have your best deal. The group has run a Holiday Sales Event for many years. What we like most is that the number of people who give Costco's auto sales program top scores for value, service, and overall buying experience is nearly 100%. This is the first year the Corvette has been part of the program which offers buyers: - GM Supplier Pricing - Plus most currently available GM incentives. - Plus Costco Executive Members will receive a $700 Costco Cash Card and Gold Star - And Business Members will receive a $300 Costco Cash Card for purchasing a qualifying model and completing all eligibility requirements.
  15. I have a 2000 GMC Sierra 2wd ext cab with 134,000 miles on it. My buddy has a corvette that he just put a cam in, thus he has his stock cam. Would I be safe to put this cam in my truck without a tune? I want to put headers and some other mods on it before I get the tune, so it would be a month or two before I got it.
  16. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 5/2/2016 The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport will start at $66,445 for coupe models and $70,445 for convertibles when the new trim goes on sale this fall. These "starting prices" are always a little deceiving. With options like the Z07 package which includes carbon ceramic brakes, five custom wheel choices and available carbon fiber ground effects prices can quickly climb. Still, $70K for a track-ready Corvette is bargain. The Grand Sport uses the LT1 V8 with 460 hp. For more details on the newest Corvette Trim for 2017, please see our prior story.
  17. The Venom GT uses a twin-turbo 7.0L V8 Chevrolet engine modified with two turbochargers. It has a Ricardo six-speed manual. The Venom GT is capable of a 0-60 MPH sprint in under 2.4 seconds and can run from 0-200 MPH in under 13 seconds. Hennessey's Venom GT Hardtop is the current high-speed record holder with a recorded time of over 270 MPH.
  18. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 4/15/2016 What has 1,451 hp, a top-speed record, and no roof? The Hennessey Venom GT Spyder. This March 25th, the Team at Hennessey set out to break the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Vitesse's top speed in a convertible record. At the hands of Brian Smith, director of the Ford Performance Racing School, the Venom GT Spyder recorded a time of 265.6 MPH. The speed run was confirmed by independent speed testing firm Racelogic. The incredible test was conducted at Naval Air Station Lemoore and witnessed by Commander Darren Fouts, Air Operations.

  19. We like the look. This conversion could be used as a grand touring vehicle with room for luggage. A spare tire might fit. Going off-road and hunting off the back tailgate, like the original shooting brake autos were designed for, is probably not in the cards, but who knows? Tell us what you think below. Visit Callaway for more details.
  20. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 4/8/2016 This week, well after April Fools Day, Callaway launched its new C7 Corvette AeroWagen Package. The shooting brake design is a two-door station wagon conversion of a modern Corvette. Callaway will do the conversion for any C7 Corvette Stingray or ZO6. The car will remain a two-seat vehicle and no four-door is planned. Callaway says the body additions will all be supplied in raw carbon fiber, so added weight should not be an issue.

  23. With 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque the LT1 has enough power and twist for most road-going project cars or track day cars. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q50GD8eIra8&feature=youtu.be GM is calling this its most technologically-advanced crate engine ever, which is high praise given the LT4's higher power and torque output. You can learn more about the new LT1 here at Chevy's website.
  24. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 3/28/2016 Do you have a project car that needs an engine?
