The only thing to drop quicker than our jaws when we learned the price of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was our collective panties. For the low, low price of $78,995 you can get into the driver’s seat of a new Corvette Z06—and probably divorce court. The convertible starts at $83,995—a new offering on the high-performance car.
The 2015 Corvette Z06 rockets to 60 mph in just 2.95 seconds. This puts the world’s supercars on notice.
On November 30, 2013, news quickly spread of a serious accident involving a red Porsche Carrera GT in Valencia, California, following a toy drive for charity. The story took a tragic turn when it was revealed that the crash had taken the lives of Fast and Furious franchise star Paul Walker and his friend and business partner, Roger Rodas. While details of the accident are still speculative at this point, the bottom line is that two families have lost loved ones, the automotive culture has lost one of its best representatives, and the world has lost someone who strived to help those affected by natural disasters.
A mid-engine Corvette has been cycled through the rumor mill more times than that stripper rumored to go all the way for just an extra five bucks. The scribes over at Car and Driver say they have surmised that the next-gen Vette will have to be a mid-engine American supercar because the current C7 is tapped out of all the power it can produce.
Earlier this week, a Camaro6.com member named chazcron drew up some amazing renderings. They represent his idea of the perfect sixth-gen Camaro: body styling similar to the fifth-gen, but with a more aggressive nose, a more pronounced hood bulge and wicked, LED-based lighting. While the 2010 Camaro’s tail was straight-up bulbous, GM made great strides in the last few years smoothing it out. So we’re not crazy about chazcron’s rounded, almost Supra-looking rear—but other than that, these renderings are the sex.
