Meet The 2014 Corvette

The all-new 2014 Chevy Corvette is beautiful.

When it comes to comebacks, General Motors is a company that knows a lot about making a flashy return.  Despite multiple bankruptcies and a multitude of development problems, there’s one brand that GM refuses to give up on, and that’s the vaunted Chevrolet Corvette.  GM is rolling out the all-new 2014 Corvette, and it looks like a thing of beauty.  However, it’s not just a muscle car, it’s an economical muscle car.

That’s right, gang; apparently the big focus of the new Corvette isn’t a killer stereo or milking the most power possible out of its V8 engine, but it’s sipping the least gasoline.  Engineers have already pushed the fuel economy over the 2013 Corvette’s 16 mpg city and 26 mpg highway, and the car codenamed C7 is completely new from the ground up, sharing only two parts with the previous version of the Corvette.  With a new car comes a chance to increase fuel economy, and Corvette designers are looking to get as close to 30 mpg highway as they can get.

“There won’t be a Corvette if we don’t care about fuel economy,” said Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter.

The new Vette will retail for $49,600, nearly 30k less than its competition.

Even if you like clowns, you have to admit they can easily become unsettling.  Just a few little tweaks in the makeup, maybe drop the real smile for a painted-on smile, splatter a little blood, and what normally delights children becomes a monster straight out of Stephen King.  If those clowns are skulking about in […]
