Corvette Racers’ Theme 09 Carlisle

2009 Corvettes at Carlisle Show gets hit by Heavy Rain

2009 Le Mans Winning C6.R Racer

2009 Le Mans Winning C6.R Racer

This year’s theme was Corvette race cars and WOW, were there plenty of old and new Corvette warriors on hand. Let’s face it, if you take “racing” out of the Corvette story, it’s like pizza without sauce and cheese, or spaghetti without meatballs! On hand was the 2009 Le Mans-winning C6.R. I thought it was VERY cool that they left most of the racing dirt on the car. Nothing like that “racing-dirt patina,” you know. Continue reading

C7 Corvette Speculation

What will inspire  and influence the new Chevrolet Corvette C7?

Corvette Lovers Dream On….

The blogosphere and webosphere have been blah blahhing quite a bit in the last few months as to just what changes inside and out may occur with the upcoming and greatly anticipated C7 Corvette. If you read the other post here on Corvette Report  on the Corvette in Peril, you know the economy will most likely slow down the production of this next generation. That aside, Corvette lovers dream on. Here are a few links to get the conversation going and a few well thought out responses to how things may shake out/ shape up. WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Future of the Corvette C7 In Peril?

Is The Future of the Corvette In Peril?

“Could”  there be a C7 Corvette?

By K. Scott Teeters


Blogosphere C7 Corvette Speculation.

It’s interesting to see how the blogosphere has stoked the C7 conversation. Last week GM got some positive press with the announcement of the EPA mileage estimates for the new Chevy Volt – upwards of 230 mpg! That’s interesting, but as plug-in hybrids make their way into the market, the manufacturers and the EPA will have to come up with a different way of estimating their figures. I work out of my home and sometimes don’t drive my car for days.  Sometimes I fill up as little as once every 6 weeks! A plug-in could keep me going for a year without buying gasoline. The fuel would go bad before I’d use all of it! But the killer in the story was the price of the Volt – $40,000! It’s an interesting car, not “bad” looking and nothing “original,” but how many do they really think they’ll sell when the Honda Insight is about half the price and the Prius is two thirds the price of a Volt?

Score another accolade for the Bow Tie Boys at Chevrolet for the 2010 Camaro Indy   500 Pace Car at the 2009 Indy 500 race.  Now that all the fan-fair has died down, the question naturally arises, “What will pace the ‘10 Indy 500?” Continue reading

First, a  bit of Corvette pace car history by Vette magazine
artist and columnist, K. Scott Teeters:

Corvettes Pace the Indy 500 a record ten times since 1978.

(Will Corvette Do It Again Soon?)

“The Indy 500 race is arguably the most popular race in motor-sports. Early in ‘78 the Corvette world went wild with speculation when news was released that the Corvette would be the Indy 500 pace car, and that replicas would be available. Priced at what was then a mind-boggling $13,653, some buyers paid as much as $25,000 to grab a piece of Corvette history!

Eight years later, the Corvette was again chosen to pace the ‘86 Indy 500. But this time, Chevrolet trumped speculators and designated all ‘86 Corvette roadsters as “pace car replicas.” Since then, Corvette Pace Car-replicas have been limited-production cars and are highly collectible.
