C7 Corvette review in About.Com Cars, 8/22/13
By Aaron Gold
What I liked about the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Fast, loud and fun. Scandalously cheap. Makes every driver look (and feel) like a superhero.
What I didn't like about the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Automatic transmission saps the fun. Ungainly size. Driving position favors those with long legs.
The Corvette is known as America's sports car, and in recent years, it's certainly lived up to the billing -- the previous-generation Corvette could run with Europe's best, though it was a bit lacking in ambiance and substance. Now we have an all-new seventh-generation Corvette, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Is this a world-beater, or will it simply get beat?
It's a funny thing about the Corvette: American car fans seem to be divided into those who think it's awesome and those who think it's awful. And yet any time GM says they're coming out with a new Corvette, everyone -- lovers and haters alike -- has an opinion. Should The General stay with the same familiar fomula or should they break with tradition and try something completely different? Lots of people would love to see a more exotic Corvette with a mid-mounted turbocharged engine and all-wheel-drive.
