First new Stingray wrecked....

Well that didn't take long.

It's been less than a month since Chevrolet revealed the 2014 Corvette Stingray, and already one has turned up wrecked. Since the new Corvette isn't on sale yet, chances are someone at General Motors will have a sizable expense report to fill out.

I'm sure the driver was obeying all traffic laws.

the inside tire caught the edge of the pavement

sadly this almost happened to me going 77mph on the north I-215
to sum it up the pavement was controlling my steering & started fishtailing . Luckily I was able to recover. by braking hard my car has 4 wheel ABS & disc brakes.

Well, does your car at least turn into something else? Sometimes I turn it into a trashcan. Hmm...

Couldn't happen to an uglier car. Good riddance.

Before they release cars they do shake down tests in various environments - including very hot environments. Yep - they were probably doing the same thing many of the owners would do - they need to make sure it will be ok and not overheat. Of course - they could be making sure they fixed something as well.

Yea - not sure how I like it. The rear-end is fairly ugly it seems to me. Front is ok - but not sure I am sold on the back-end.

Pretty sure GM would not allow the new car to be driven by a teen...

Funny video report on it, and a few other auto items:

The MB hatch at the end is hot.

The hatch is nice but no manual - dead deal.

Yep, I thought the same. And it seems so odd that a car no intended for the USA anyway does not come with a manual.

The point being???? This is still the first Stingray to be wrecked - before #1 is delivered.
