Historic Photo Of The 2014 Stingray, Another First.

Recommended Posts

Here is another historic first for the 2014 Corvette Stingray. I just wonder if there is a job opening at GM now.

read the GM statement, it makes no sense at all.

Maybe a typo on the first "caught"

And how does the inside tire catch the edge of the pavement unless he was driving on the wrong side of the road, or cutting a cornor so tight that he was in the other lane through the turn.

Testing how real-world Corvette owners will actually use this product? :ph34r:

Inside refers to the curve, not the lane. The driver would have been making a tight right hander. Inside edge could have gone off the pavement causing the steering wheel to jerk and a moment of oversteer. With wide tires the effect would be much more pronounced. Braking would transfer weight over the already disconnected front end causing the rear to spin around. Skid marks would indicate the speed when control was lost. Probably going faster than recommended but still within back road speed limit considering the minimal damage.

"..gray haired well beyond middle aged, drivers.)

Careful some day, there goes U.

Around here the "second childhood" old men wear something to hide the bald.

See pic.

I still have hair.

I let it show.

You are correct sir, I meant no disrepect to our older drivers. Simply that they can afford the new corvette, as their kids are grown and the home is paid off, college debts long since payed off etc. yes a hint of jealousy of the financial situation, not so much of grey hair or missing hair.

I used to work with an older Pennsylvania Dutch farmer who was bald. He always said that God made a few perfect heads, on the rest he put hair. Always made me laugh.

At least the '14 Corvette didn't take a page from Ferrari's book and self immolate.
