During a special event at GM’s proving grounds in Milford Michigan, along with a few west coast event in California, lucky writers and editors were able to get behind the hotly anticipated sports car.
The results are pretty much unanimous:
Buzz for the 2014 Corvette Stingray:
All these changes make for an incredibly compelling sports car. The previous Corvette required some seat time to get comfortable pushing its limits; the C7 is ready to dance right out of the box.

It feels adjustable on the throttle like many European performance cars; give it too much right foot and the rear end will come around quick, but this is the fun — not terrifying — and controllable type of oversteer enthusiast drivers covet.
Optional competition-like seats will debut when the Stingray convertible arrives in the fourth quarter of this year and will strengthen the driver-machine connection further; but we’re happy already.

Considering the performance strides, the splendid interior, the Stingray’s screaming value, and its fun-to-drive vibe, here’s our Corvette report card: A+ for effort, straight As for execution

The Z51, on the other hand, equipped with all of the must-have extras isn’t just the Vette we like, it’s what we think the Corvette should be…and if that costs $70,000, so be it. Even then, it’s still a bargain.

Sure, it will still do endless burnouts if you want it to. But with newfound interior refinement and up-to-date electronic features, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette is now a more appealing and well-rounded choice for a sports car.
