Released just last week at the Detriot Auto Show was the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette. With its swooping fenders, quad exhaust, and super large front air scoop, the Corvette looks meaner than ever. Oh, and it will be called a Stingray.
With a newly developed LT1 under the hood producing an estimated 450 horsepower and equal torque, this can be head with either a seven-speed manual transmission with rev match or a fast floppy paddle six speed automatic gearbox. With available options such as the magnetic selective ride suspension and painted or visible carbon fiber hoods, the new Stingray will make you smile.
No word yet on exactly what the performance numbers are going to be, however the based 2014 corvette is supposedly going to have a near perfect 50/50 weight distribution which will be amazing on the freeway or your local track.
Personally, I find the 2014 Corvette to look like a mash up for a 2012 Ferrari GTO from the sides, a 2013 dodge Viper from the front, and all the ugly parts from the Camaro or Malibu in the rear since Chevy wants to make everything uniform as taillights are concern.

My personal favorite auction is Barrett-Jackson. Even though they have multiple auctions a year, the Scottsdale one is their most prominent and respected auction and usually brings multiple multimillion dollars vehicle this year.
This year I came across an awesome Porsche that I absolutely feel in love with: the 1986 Porsche 959 Prototype. As a kid, I dreamed of this car on a daily basis. Whether it is staring at the posted on my wall, trying to draw one on my notebook, or playing one in a videogame, to me this was the first supercar! A little background of this car says that this is one of twenty-nine 959 prototypes were built on a regular 930 Turbo chassis and then converted into what you see today. From these 29 units, it is said that only two running prototypes exist and this one is even comes with the original preproduction Dunlop tires where the manufactured version came standard with Bridgestone’s.
Classic cars and muscle cars are the staple of Barrett Jackson and while the ones in original condition are hard to find, even the ones with aftermarket parts are still hot.
