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.

This LS7-powered, 1965 C2 Corvette Proves There Is Still Place For Custom-Built Pro-Touring Muscle Cars

This 1965 Corvette sat in the desert for 30 years, and now, it represents the pinnacle of pro-touring muscle cars

In how bad of a state does a car need to be in order to be given up on? Apparently, it doesn’t matter for Greg Thurman, who saved a 1965 C2 Corvette that has been sitting in the desert for 30 years with much of its body missing. If you are a purist and hope to see a fully-restored, all-authentic C2 Corvette, you will be disappointed, because when Greg finished with the C2 Corvette, it became what can only be described as the pinnacle of custom-built, Pro-Touring American muscle cars.

The C8 Corvette ZR1 isn’t going to be the range-topping model for long, but it’s worthy of praise

Chevy just teased a new version of the C8 Corvette that won’t only be the first hybrid Vette in history but also the first AWD Corvette in history. And, it wasn’t that long ago that we spotted the C8 Corvette E-Ray doing some on-road testing, and while the Hybrid Vette is next on the list, what’s coming after will be an even bigger deal. I’m talking about the C8 Corvette ZR1, and a new report has shed some light on what we can expect. The ZR1 is now in development and while the Z06 is better because it doesn’t have forced induction, we can now say that won’t be the case for the ZR1.

Chevy has finally confirmed the Corvette hybrid and Corvette EV, and they are coming sooner than you think

While Ford launched the GT supercar with an outrageous-for-a-Ford price tag, extreme rules for purchase, and very limited availability, GM was busy putting together the new mid-engined C8 Corvette. As a car that has become known as an affordable exotic with the performance credentials to match its appearance, it was only missing one thing: electrification. That’s about to change, however, as Chevy has just confirmed that the Vette Hybrid is on the way, and while that’ll be a first for the Vette nameplate, there’s an even more important first coming with it.

This Drag Race Between a 1974 Chevrolet Corvette And a 1976 Pontiac Firebird Formula Will Make You Sad About 1970s American Motoring

Two mid-1970s American icons have a drag race. Prepare to mourn the death of classic muscle cars as both vehicles take ages to go down the quarter-mile

We can all agree that muscle cars are one of the best things America has given to the world. However, it all went downhill after 1971 thanks to the fuel crisis. Carmakers were forced to de-tune their previously exciting vehicles, spawning a variety of fast-looking cars with a lackluster performance at best. Despite making next to no power, you could still drag race the cars, which is why Cars and Zebras has provided us with this drag race between a 1974 Corvette 350 and a 1976 Pontiac Firebird Formula.

It’s always nice to hear about a father-son duo showing up at the drag strip with a nice custom build. This ’66 Chevelle is a prime case in point, but when you bring two cars out, well, you can go head-to-head.

I had no idea this GT-R vs Z06 duel was a father-son pairing, to begin with, until I looked at the comments section of this video that wheel put out. Now, once again, I can’t confirm the specs, so let’s look at the baseline numbers and you can work your way from there.

Callaway Celebrates Its 35th Anniversary With A Special Appearance Package For The Chevy C8 Corvette

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.

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.

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?
