Report: Only top dealers to receive 2014 Corvette Stingray allocations

January 23, 2013 at 11:15 am

Automotive News reports that GM is requiring a dealer to have sold a minimum number of Corvettes in prior years to be able to sell the 2014 Corvette Stingray.

That may rule out many dealerships across the country. Hopefully this turns out to be false.

January 22, 2013 at 9:00 pm

In case you didn’t know… at the 2013 NAIAS Detroit, Michelin announced that, for the first time, MICHELIN tires are the exclusive original equipment tire on the complete line-up of 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray models.

All 2014 Corvette Stingrays will come equipped with the MICHELIN Pilot Super Sport ZP tire, an ultra-high performance tire that was co-developed by Michelin and Corvette through a relationship that began on the racetracks of the American Le Mans Series. Being selected as the fitment on the 2014 Corvette Stingray marks a significant achievement for Michelin after the tire giant also gained tire fitments for the 2009 Corvette ZR1 and 2011 Corvette Z06.
