With Corvette, America gets the supercar it needs

To drive a high-powered sports car, you used to need the strength to wrestle bears, the mettle to sleep on an iron girder, and the appetite to chew broken glass. The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray officially puts an end to that era. This car makes driving fast feel like getting ice cream in the park on Sunday.

And it drives really, really fast.

The new Stingray made its debut to huge fanfare at the Detroit auto show, where Chevrolet showed off a virtual landslide of performance technology. At the show, I could see the modernized elements, but after taking it for a drive at a press event hosted by Chevrolet, I got to feel how successfully the whole thing came together.
