2012 Chevrolet Corvette
2012 Chevrolet Corvette
Now entering its third year, the Corvette ZR1 continues to prove itself as a no-holds-barred, no-excuses, all-American sports car that has what it takes to beat all comers. Its 6.2-liter supercharged LS9 V-8 pumps out an incredible 638 hp and 604 lb-ft of torque, enough to make this the first production Corvette capable of crossing the 200-mph threshold. As for the other Corvette models? The base car continues with the 6.2-liter LS3 V-8 boasting 430 hp and 424 lb-ft -- or 436 hp and 428 lb-ft if you opt for the freer-breathing exhaust system. The Grand Sport, which accounts for a large portion of coupe and convertible sales, uses the base engine but gets a number of upgrades. These include Z06 styling cues, its own gear (manual transmission) and rear-axle ratios, and available magnetic ride control. The 505-hp, boy-racer Z06 neatly fills the gap between the base model and the ZR1 and can be had in a limited-edition Carbon model, which adds a number of performance and cosmetic upgrades, including ZR1-style aerodynamic aids, carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes, and magnetic ride control. In fact, every Corvette model has numerous performance and cosmetic packages that allow buyers to customize their car right down to the color of the brake calipers. Interior quality remains the Corvette's Achilles' heal, although a redesigned steering wheel; new, more heavily bolstered seats; and additional padding for the console and arm rest have addressed a few of its shortcomings. Regardless, in its segment, the Corvette offers unrivaled bang for the buck.

Chevrolet Closes Corvette Plant to Public Ahead of C7 Production Retooling
If you're waiting for the new Chevrolet Corvette, you're still going to have to wait a while, but General Motors delivered its biggest hint to date this week when it suspended public tours of its Bowling Green, Kentucky plant responsible for making the Corvette sports car. Between 40,000 and 50,000 members of the public tour the Bowling Green facility every year, but GM says that it is stopping tours indefinitely while it retools the plant to get ready for the next Corvette. Those tours, it would seem, will have to wait, as will Chevrolet's special program that allows Corvette buyers to watch their cars being built and purchase photos from the build. The production process itself won't stop, however, and there hasn't been any word of delays or slowdowns in making the last of the C6s. In fact, GM spokespeople tell the News the opposite is true: Bowling Green workers are working overtime to meet demand for the current Corvette. GM has also added 100 workers to help retool the plant for the C7, and plans to hire 150 more in the near future. We already knew that the C7 Corvette was coming soon--we've already seen spy photos of it and heard murmurs about new and updated powertrains--but this move is the largest hint to date as to when the car will finally make it to dealerships. With retooling already underway in Bowling Green and instrumented test vehicles already on public roads, signs point to a debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this January. A January 2013 debut would point to a mid- to late-2013 sale date as a 2014-model-year vehicle. Source: Detroit News

Driven: 2012 Chevrolet Corvette
The Corvette's legend was made during the period from the mid Fifties, when it got its mojo working, right on through the Sixties. Soon thereafter, the Corvette went into a period of decline along with the rest of the American auto industry. As the whole idea of performance came under assault, the Corvette drifted into self-parody. More recently, of course, the Corvette has come back, regaining and then eclipsing the performance of its halcyon days.
