2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray First Drive
General Motors is on a roll, and while Cadillac might steal most of the limelight when it comes to new products, Chevrolet has managed to introduce close to a baker’s dozen of fresh models over the course of the past few years. Of these, none has generated the same fevered anticipation as the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The seventh-generation version of America’s emblematic sports car has been under the microscope since it broke cover in Detroit this past January, and its styling, drivetrain, and – especially – its interior appointments having been scrutinized in excruciating detail.
What awaited us all was perhaps the most important question of all: how does it drive? I made my way to Monterey, California last week to get behind the wheel of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and what I discovered was not only the most potent performance coupe to ever wear the Corvette badge, but also perhaps the most complete automobile that Chevrolet has ever built.
