Our guest on FarOutRadio.com is Lance Miller of Carlisle Events, in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, one of the premier car event companies in America. From April to September Carlisle Events hosts 13, three-day car show events with the August “Corvettes at Carlisle” show arguably drawing the largest crowd. For Corvette fans, Corvettes at Carlisle is THE Corvette event of the year.
Like legions of fans, Lance and I watched the all-new, next generation 2014 Corvette Stingray debut via the internet live streaming. Since the mechanical details of the all new flagship sports car have been known for a few months, we talk about the aesthetics of the new car, as well as the overall package. Aside from finally getting to see the real car, the second most exciting thing about the debut was the announcement that for the first time since 1976, the C-7 Corvette wears the name, “Stingray.”
The new Corvette is more powerful and lighter with extensive use of aluminum, magnesium, and carbon fiber. And what we saw last night is the BASIC 2014 Corvette. What’s not known is will there be a next level up Grand Sport model, or a near track-ready Z06 version, and a new monster version of the ZR1.
