Chevy's Newest Racecar Drops its Camo
New Performance Corvette Changes Everything
There are about to be a lot of sports car owners with feelings of inadequacy. The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will be prowling a track near you soon and it is looking for blood.
It’s probably the greatest sports car America has ever made and you can watch it revealed to the world, live online.
Gone But Not Forgotten
A lot went down in 2013. It was something of a banner year for the automotive business. Products continued to get better, sales steadily improved and alternative propulsion, whether in the form of electricity or diesel gained significant traction.
General Motors is making a push to modernize its OnStar concierge service starting with handful of 2015 model year vehicles this summer.
Depreciation. It’s the nasty side to buying a new car that often amounts to a slap in the face worth several thousand dollars.
This is Our Holiday Wish List
It has been another busy year at the AutoGuide office. Once again we have driven and evaluated hundreds of cars this year ranging from the Mitsubishi Mirage to the Dodge Ram to the Rolls Royce Ghost.
We love testing cars and will test anything we can get our hands on. However, every once in a while we come across a car that is something special; a car that separates itself from the over-populated crowd and wins over our automotive hearts.

I am a bit of a Camaro guy. As the previous owner of a 1996 Camaro, I still have visions of once again owning a Chevrolet pony car.
So when GM brought back the Camaro in 2010, my excitement to get behind the wheel was understandable. But when the time came to finally pilot a shiny red Camaro SS, I was disappointed.
Despite having over 400 hp, the car felt under powered, heavy, ponderous and quiet; not good traits for an American sports car. In the three years since that drive, Chevy has been working hard to enhance the Camaro and introduced the awesome ZL1 and the upcoming track-special Z/28. Problem is, both of those cars are expensive. Really expensive. What is the average Joe to do? The easy answer to that is the 1LE package. This is the car the Camaro SS always should have been right from the start. Here are five reasons why.
The first-ever season of the new TUDOR United SportsCar Championship is less than two months away.
Modernized as the C7 Corvette is, automatic models still use a six-speed automatic. That won’t be the case much longer and an SAE technical paper is revealing key details about the new slushbox.
Europe is saying buh bye to the American bowtie brand at General Motors’ behest; not that people across the Atlantic are showing Chevy much love anyway.
