Meet The 2014 Corvette

The all-new 2014 Chevy Corvette is beautiful.

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.

The streets of Dhaka are running red with blood.  We’re not talking little trickles of blood, either; we’re talking full-on blood flood filling the city, turning the capital of Bangladesh into a post-apocalyptic wasteland.  There have been lots of horrible flooding events, like a flood of toxic sludge and street-clogging floods of frogs, but a […]

There’s nothing quite like walking into a video store, looking at the rows of boxes, and selecting a movie to watch.  It was one of my favorite things as a kid, and one of the few reasons why I went to Blockbusters right down to the end of their run.  Even after Blockbuster folded, I […]

Giant Tire Fire Erupts In Spain

One of the most famous features of Matt Groening’s fictional town of Springfield is a strange one.  Springfield is home to a giant, perpetually burning tire fire.  I guess considering the town also has a nuclear plant that routinely leaks glowing green waste into the town’s water supply, the tire fire isn’t such a big […]

Fashion designers look for inspiration everywhere.  Some of it is pop culture, like Friday the 13th-inspired hoodies.  Other fashions are inspired by low culture, like deluxe Snuggies.  Some people turn to the culture of their past for inspiration, like the 8-bit video games they grew up on.  Italian fashion house Moschino is partnering with Nintendo […]
