Proving that you don’t need to go six figures deep to have supercar performance on or off the track

Chevy shocked the world when the eighth-generation (C8) Corvette switched to a mid-engine layout. It naturally came with some criticism, but for the most part it was well received. Fast forward a couple of years, and Chevy stayed true to tradition by releasing an all-new C8 Corvette Z06, but how much does the new Z06 really stick to tradition? Well, it doesn’t feature forced induction, but it is supercar fast and it comes as a strong proposition to cars like the Ferrari F8 that cost more than double, and it kind of sticks it to Ford and its overpriced, heritage-proud GT. Here’s everything you need to know about the brand new 2023 Chevy C8 Corvette Z06.

For Shame: Someone Bought a Corvette ZR1 3ZR And Never Drove It

This Vette has been sitting inside a garage for more than a decade

Being the most powerful Vette of its time, the C6 Corvette ZR1 is such a beast, even in today’s world. It was introduced in 2007, and in the same press statement, GM announced how it managed to achieve 100-horsepower-per-one-liter with a new LS9 supercharged V-8 engine. The Corvette ZR1 is a part of the sixth-generation iconic sportscar (C6), which made its debut in 2005. A 2011 iteration of this 638-horsepower legendary two-door coupe is offered on Bring a Trailer with only 37 miles on the odometer. That means this C6 ZR1 3ZR is practically a brand-new car.

This Pratt & Miller C6RS Just Sold For Unthinkable Amounts of Money

600 horsepower, a six-speed manual, and a Bose stereo make it the ideal daily driver

Road-going race cars are always an exciting prospect that gets car enthusiasts foaming at the mouth, regardless of how not-appropriate they are on the road in the real world. These cars can be hard both in terms of the ride, and the sheer amount of effort it takes to drive. However, the stock Corvette has always had a fair bit of everyday ease and usability to it, so perhaps this road-going racer won’t be such a pain. This Pratt & Miller C6RS is one such car, and it is the fourth example ever built of a road-legal homage to the racing team’s C6.R race car that won its class at LeMans in 2007.

Watch the 2024 Corvette Corvette C8 E-Ray Put in Work on the Nürburgring

Watch the 2024 Corvette Corvette C8 E-Ray Put in Work on the Nürburgring

Three E-Ray prototypes are making music at Nurburgring, and you definitely want to hear it

Launched in April 2019, the eighth-generation Corvette is now due to go hybrid. The name "E-Ray" was trademarked back in 2015, but it took the company more than six years to start testing the real deal. Starting October 2021 we spotted all kind of E-Ray prototypes both on the streets and outside the famous Nurburgring track. Of course, this intense testing is not uneventful: just recently an E-Ray prototype testing somewhere in Spain burnt to the ground after the engine bay caught fire. It seems that Chevrolet forgotten about this misfortune, as it took not one, but three Corvette E-Ray prototypes for some testing at the Nurburgring track.

However, a rumor regarding an electric Corvette sedan has sparked the intention to develop practical Corvettes. SRK Designs has imagined what a four-door, front-engined version of the "America’s sportscar" would look like while highlighting the present Corvette coupe design.

Chevy Will Fight the Porsche Taycan With an Electric Corvette Sedan

Chevy Will Fight the Porsche Taycan With an Electric Corvette Sedan

The Corvette nameplate will branch out as an all-electric sedan comes to take the battle to Germany’s finest

Like other carmakers, Chevrolet is on the path of electrification. Just as Ford put the iconic Mustang name on the Mach-E electric crossover, Chevrolet is putting the Corvette name on an all-electric sedan that’s aimed at the Taycan. We already know that the Corvette C8 will be offered as a hybrid called the E-Ray, but the fully-electric Corvette sedan is a step further. Although the Porsche Taycan is not the quickest four-door EV on sale – that title is still held by the Tesla Model S Plaid – the German brand has always been an echelon for performance, and the Corvette EV aims to outmatch it.

GM claims the new Z06 is the definition of the American supercar. Is race-bred Corvette variant ready to claim the throne?

Celebrating almost 60 years of the Corvette Z06, the latest iteration of the race-bred variant promises to be the best performing and most refined Z06, ever. For many Corvette enthusiasts, the Z06 is perhaps the most desirable model within the line-up.

Absolutely boasting the most powerful naturally aspirated V-8 available in any production vehicle, the 670 horsepower LT6 engine is truly an engineering marvel. Undoubtedly, the LT6 engine is one of the most interesting and potent power plants available in any modern performance vehicle. GM has touted the new Z06 as the definition of the American supercar, intended for the discerning enthusiast who truly seeks the most refined and rewarding driving experience possible. With a mid-engine layout, a meticulously crafted chassis, and a truly spine-tingling exotic exhaust note, this may be the closest thing to that definition we have ever seen.

Nürburgring Expert Drives The C8 Corvette for The First Time and is Blown Away

Will the benchmark setter that is the mid-engine Corvette fold under the pressure or break all expectations?

The Nürburgring Nordschleife has the tendency of putting the egos of unsuspecting drivers in check. Those with years of experience know even better that you can’t find every nuance in every one of the 154 turns. Keeping the car clean over 12.9 miles is a grueling test of both endurance and consistency.

Misha Charoudin, long-time Nürburgring resident, has more Nordschliefe experience than most could ever dream. He recently got the chance to drive the unicorn (to Europe) known as the C8 Corvette. He covers his full experience of two blazing laps via his YouTube channel.

This C3 Corvette Sportwagon is the perfect classic daily and it has been modified to perfection

The Chevrolet Corvette is, currently, in its eighth generation’ and with it, the model finally moved the engine in the middle, as was originally intended. While, in itself, it is a big change, one of the most iconic Corvette models will remain the C3. The classic model, made between 1967and 1982, not only introduced the “Cola-Cola” design, but was also a basis for some epic kit cars such as the Panther J6 and reimagined models like the King Rat and the S/C Lightweight. There was even a rare shooting brake version of the C3, which has an interesting story behind it, and this particular one has received a very significant upgrade.

How Zora Arkus-Duntov Helped Create the 2023 Chevy C8 Corvette Z06

The ZO6 carries on to this day and it is all because of one guy in charge with a really good idea.

The Corvette nameplate is an absolute legend in America. It is like a working-class hero more than capable of taking down its much more prestigious and expensive rivals from across the pond. However, the Corvette’s even faster variant, at least the one people can still afford, the Z06, almost did not even happen, and if it was not for one guy in the 1960s, Zora Arkus-Duntov, bending the rules a bit, that variant would not exist at all.

Kellison J6 Panther - The True Story Behind This Forgotten American Muscle Car

The Kellison J6 Panther was, essentially, a Corvette-based kit that turned the American icon into a ground-bound fighter plane

The Chevrolet Corvette is one of the most iconic American sports cars. And while there’s hardly any Corvette worth missing out on, the American icon also proved to be a great basis for other high-performance machines. One of the greatest examples of that is the Kellison J6 Panther, which was the creation of former aircraft engineer, Jim Kellison, who in 1958, founded Kellison Auto Engineering company and aimed to build an even faster version of the Chevrolet Corvette.

Full Interior Swap: Is this a Chevy C8 Camaro or an F-Body C8 Corvette?

Full Interior Swap: Is this a Chevy C8 Camaro or an F-Body C8 Corvette?

The interior is what is truly special about this creation

Everyone loves a good engine swap. They are an endless source of amusement online and can breathe new life into a car. Even the most straightforward examples where you simply take an old engine out and put a new identical one in its place can make the car drive like it’s fresh out of the factory. Then there are the craziest ones, like dropping a Hellcat engine into a Prius or a Corvette powerplant into a Tesla. Plus, with the rise of the incredibly sophisticated SEMA-style builds, we occasionally see complete overhauls of cars from the ground up. This 3rd-gen Camaro may not win awards at SEMA since it is just an amalgamation of factory GM parts, but it certainly attracts attention. In terms of the engine swap, all we know is that out is the old 5.0-liter V-8 that originally lived under the hood, and in its place is an LS V-8 of some kind. Great, but in the grand scheme of things, not all that wild. The interior, on the other hand, is something of a different nature.

With modern automotive design influenced more and more by numerous regulations, many of the production cars do not look nearly as exciting as their respective, original concept models. For the same reason, many design studies never made it to production or had to be heavily altered. While there are concept cars that made it to the real world, the Chevrolet Corvette Manta Ray is, sadly, not among them, but now, we have a modern interpretation of the 1960s design and, once again, we wish GM could give us a production version of it.

When we talk about “The American Dream” in the context of cars, the Chevrolet Corvette is, often, the car everyone looks up to. While largely sold in its home market, in the USA, the American sports car has had quite a faithful fanbase across the pond too. Because of this, some European carmakers tried capturing the essence of the Corvette with their own interpretation, a case in point being the Intermeccanica Indra, but in a British company, called Lightning Sports Cars UK revealed their take on a C3 Corvette, called the Lightning Sports TS, and we are not sure what to think of it.

The Chevrolet Corvette is an American icon, not just on its home soil, but across the pond.

The Hybrid, AWD C8 Corvette Could Redefine the Grand Sport Name

The Hybrid, AWD C8 Corvette Could Redefine the Grand Sport Name

Will the new Corvette Grand Sport be the AWD hybrid that Chevy teased recently?

Chevrolet has owned the "Grand Sport" name for what seems like forever, but it wasn’t available with every generation of the Corvette. The first time it was used for the second-generation Corvette in 1963, and then it made a comeback in 1996 with the fourth generation, then skipped a generation and made a return in 2010 with the C6, and then again in 2017 with the C7.

Now it seems that the Grand Sport name is about to make a come-back as Chevrolet trademarked the name again with the “US Patent And Trademark Office”. Or it could be a simple renewal as the current trademark expires at the end of November 2022.

This is just an appearance package with no power upgrades, but you get a lot of carbon fiber treatment

Callaway started by offering aftermarket turbocharger systems for BMW, Volkswagen, Porsche, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz cars. Its first product was launched in 1977 and was a C1 VW turbo kit. It continued with building a racing engine for IndyCar specification and after that, a turbocharged kit for Alfa Romeo’s 2.5-liter GTV-6 coupé.

It was this last project that caught the attention of Dave McLellan - Chief Engineer of the Corvette - and it was in 1987 when Callaway offered its first twin-turbo Corvette under the Regular Production Option (RPO) B2K program. Now, 35 years later, Callaway celebrates the program’s anniversary with the launch of a special appearance package for the 2022 Corvette Z51.

An Interesting Take On What The Next-Generation C9 Chevrolet Corvette Would Look Like

Someone used a Ferrari F50 and a Chinese EV to predict how the C9 Corvette would look. The results are interesting

The Chevrolet Corvette C8 finally fulfilled the vision of a mid-engine Corvette. With the C8 Z06 on the way, it’s only natural to wonder what a C9 Corvette would look like. The C8 is often compared to a Ferrari 458 because of its mid-engine layout and overall aesthetics, but a digital artist that goes by the Instagram alias, ugur_sahin_design has taken that to another level. His design has been featured in a YouTube video by REC Anything and reveals an interesting, yet not very American take on a C9 Corvette.

This Chevrolet C4 Corvette Is a Weird Swedish Mashup Between American and JDM

This JDM-inspired C4 Corvette is a weird mix of two very different car cultures, and it looks bonkers

When it comes to Japanese cars, modifications are as common as ketchup on a hot dog. Pretty much anything that you can do to a car has been done, so standing out may be a challenge. That said, a guy named Jim Bjork has decided to think outside the box and has modified a very American C4 Corvette in a very JDM way. What came of it is one of the most unique-looking vehicles, you have ever seen.

This 1960 Chevrolet Corvette Has Been Restored In a Very Rare Color

A very special, 1960 Chevrolet C1 Corvette was recently sold for pretty penny

Classic Corvettes are, undeniably, a desirable piece of American automotive history. The C1 Corvette, in particular, is where it all started and while early examples left a lot to be desired, especially in the performance department, later C1 examples, like this fully restored, 1960 example are truly remarkable. Moreover, this one is finished in the rare Cascade Green and recently changed hands, for a pretty penny.

What a Mid-Engine C8 Corvette Rival From Ford Needs To Have In Order To Stand a Chance

What a Mid-Engine C8 Corvette Rival From Ford Needs To Have In Order To Stand a Chance

A new Thunderbird might give the C8 Corvette trouble, but it needs to have a few aces up its sleeve in order to stand a chance.

The Ford vs Chevy rivalry is one of the oldest and biggest in automotive history. The two American carmakers have been going at it, across the lineup for decades. We have the Mustang vs Camaro, F-Series vs Silverado, and Bronco vs Trailblazer, but before all of those there was the Thunderbird vs C1 Corvette. And guess what, the Thunderbird wiped the floor with the Corvette, in the 1950s, outselling it 23 to 1.

This Mashup Between A Porsche 911 and C3 Corvette Might Give you Nightmares

This Mashup Between A Porsche 911 and C3 Corvette Might Give you Nightmares

If it doesn’t give you nightmares, then there’s a good chance you’re head over heels in love with it

The creation you see here comes courtesy of Yasid Design, and goes by the name Porsche Concept Zero Two. It isn’t officially endorsed by either Chevy nor Porsche, but is more of an independent design study that blends together cues of a “classic” 911 and the C3 Chevy Corvette. There are a total of three renderings, and while it does have a cool, cyberpunk-ish feel too it, is it too much to blend a Porsche 911 and C3 Corvette into one oddly strange package?
