Corvette Exterior Design Manager Kirk Bennion says the team had five goals when they began work on the 2014 Corvette Stingray.

Fewer than one in three Chevrolet dealerships will be eligible to sell the 2014 Corvette Stingray when it begins rolling off the assembly line in late summer.

GM showed off the Night Race Blue color for the 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray for the first time on a convertible model which is currently on display at the 2013 NY auto show.

Like the C7 Corvette Coupe, the first Corvette Stingray Convertible to be produced will also be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson, on April 5, 2013.
The auction proceeds will once again benefit a charity – the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute.
The first C7 Coupe to be built was won by Rick Hendrick back in January for a cool $1.05 million. Will he once again be the winner? We wouldn’t be surprised!
Someone at the Coughlin Corvette dealer spotted a passing C7 Corvette caravan, among which was a Crystal Red Tintcoat C7 Corvette Stingray. This photo gives us our first look yet at this color.
The contest, which is officially run by GM, lists an approximate retail value of $82,610 (listed in the contest’s official rules PDF) for the winning package. But, the rules specifically lists an Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of $71,860 for the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
There’s no indication whether the winner’s C7 will include the Z51 performance package nor what other options/packages it will be equipped with, but this figure at least gives us a ballpark estimate of the C7 Corvette Stingray coupe’s price range.
Ever wonder what the C7 Corvette Stingray would look like in shooting brake (hatchback) form? Well, neither did we, but here it is anyway – imagined by GM cars tuner Callaway.
