GM Finishes Restoration of 1992 Chevrolet Corvette Damaged by Sinkhole

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Tragedy struck the National Corvette Museum early last year when an enormous sinkhole opened up underneath the floor and swallowed eight significant Corvettes on display. All cars in question were damaged in some way, with some in worse shape than others. Some of the cars were extremely historically significant, including a white 1992 C4 Corvette Convertible that was the one millionth Corvette to roll of the assembly line. After the cars were recovered from the sinkhole, General Motors decided to restore two of the cars to their original condition.

Charging Ahead: 2016 Chevrolet Volt Review

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - From San Jose, the drive to coastal Highway 1 in this soul-stirring corner of the Golden State - 1,000-foot cliffs, redwood forests, the sparkling Pacific extending into forever - runs about 120 miles.

In any case, 53 miles represents a 35 percent bump in EV range compared with the first-gen Volt.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray - Four Seasons Wrap-Up

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - For much of its history, the Chevrolet Corvette has made promises it couldn’t keep. America’s sports car has always aimed to beat European competitors costing twice as much, and it frequently has put up the necessary performance stats to do so. But from behind the wheel, this bold quest has almost always come up short. Although fast and fun, the Corvette has usually lacked the refinement and attention to quality that makes a relatively expensive sports car worth that extra money.
