That's with the performance exhaust, but c'mon, who wouldn't buy the performance exhaust?
We like horsepower. We like torque. We like trying to find every single one of them in the cars we drive. But we also like being able to go as far as possible on a gallon of gas when we're not hooning the tires off. So yeah, we're pleased that Chevy's new LT1 small-block V8 in the 2014 Corvette Stingray makes more power and delivers better fuel economy than the engine it replaces.
Along with a couple of wild cards.
If you're reading this and you happen to be an American ex-pat with a love of V8 Chevrolets living in Germany, well, we have some good news for you.
A sub-Stingray base model with a smaller engine is possible.
Chevy's had great success building higher-performance, higher price versions of the Corvette over the last half-decade or so.
General Motors would be stupid not to bring back the Corvette Z06 and Corvette ZR1 models for the C7 generation model. And they're not stupid. They may have made some bad calls in the past, but they're not dumb. So the Z06 and the ZR1 will return.

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray won't be on sale for several months, but it's already lost its crash virginity.
