Untitled[edit]

This article does not list the car's top speed. --BBGun06 20:21, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Hatchback??[edit]

In this article, The Corvette is consider a hatchback. I find that crazy, so I am going to switch it to hardtop. Baseracer 22:56, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

corvette SS moniker confirmed?[edit]

there is no citation for this statement.. and i have been keeping up with news of this vehicle quite religiously.. and as far as i know, no name has been confirmed for the vehicle as of this post. Thontor 18:34, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

Agreed, no name has been confirmed - and the old version of that section seemed to "confirm" many other facts that are currently unknown (i.e. weight). I've replaced it with the section from the main Corvette article, which keeps to the known facts (and is worded better). Ayocee 22:52, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

C6RS[edit]

I wonder if we could mention the Corvette C6RS concept-car then Jay Leno presented at the SEMA 2007 on Autoblog and at Jalopnik? This one use a 500 cid V8 and can use E85 sd-100 08:01, 29 October 2007

Top Speed[edit]

Whats the top speed for both C6 and Zo6 ? and how to recognize both of them rather than the air hole on the front ?  A M M A R  21:42, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Chevy's website reckons 190 mph for the 2010 C6, 198 mph for the Z06 and 205 mph for the Z51. The ZHZ I rented in 2008 was electronically timed over a flying 200m at 180.88 but I think it was a bit tired... —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mr Larrington (talkcontribs) 13:45, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

From the exterior: Flared (wider) wheel arches. Z06 Badge on front drivers side wheel arch. Wider(?) air work back of front wheel arch, air intake on rear wheel arch, larger rotors (?). Easily found if you know what to look for. I don't know about the rear. There might be a different piece of aero work near the exhaust. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.16.229.32 (talk) 05:04, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Top speed for the base Corvette is 186 MPH, for the Z06 198 MPH, and the ZR1 205 MPH. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.216.91.40 (talk) 01:05, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

More Weasel Words, more problems, more axing.[edit]

One line said "when you consider the small numbers of production cars.." blah blah blah.

Ok, I'll say this one more time. Its part of the wikipeda guidelines: no weasel words, no unsourced and biased statements. A wiki trace finds that GM is also editing this article.

Is there a way to ban all IP's in Detroit Michigan? Anyone know how? Scryer_360 (talk) 03:41, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

I've fixed the article up a bit, ill be working on a rewrite for the next few weeks but after that it should be alright. There is a way to ban all IP's in Detroit, however petty advertising and weasel words isn't a reason to block upwards of a million people from the site. It'd be better in the eyes of the project to delete every Chevrolet article on Wikipedia then block that many people. Metagraph comment 06:54, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

weight[edit]

whats the weight of the standard c6? --98.246.94.67 (talk) 01:27, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

According to Chevrolet's website, the base Corvette coupe weighs 3,208 lbs. and the base Corvette convertible weighs 3,221 lbs. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.216.91.40 (talk) 01:15, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

length[edit]

C6 is shorter than C5 due to C5 is too long for UK and Ireland. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.210.152.57 (talk) 08:41, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Z06 1/4-Mile Time Source Error?[edit]

A statement in the current Z06 section claims that source #10 says its 1/4 time is 10.8 seconds at ~139 mph. When you follow the source, it in fact says the time is 11.8. Maybe I'm missing something; maybe I'm not. Can somebody please confirm and change if necessary?--Chipdouglas (talk) 01:14, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

ZHZ[edit]

On the grounds that the various Hertz Mustangs get a mention in their model pages, I've added a short section on the Hertz Corvette ZHZ. While the initial suggestion was that they'd only be available for 2008-09, it seems that either there are still some uncrashed examples or that they've commissioned some more, as they're still showing up on Hertz' web-site into 2010. I hope this is true, coz I've reserved one for September...Mr Larrington (talk) 14:03, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Targa Top?[edit]

Why is there a targa top in the body styles? The Corvette is only available as a coupe with a removable roof panel and convertible, it says so on GM's website, so I'm going to take out the 2-door targa top. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.216.102.54 (talk) 16:32, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Targa is another term for a coupe with a removable roof. Carguy1701 (talk) 00:22, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Z06.D[edit]

Does anyone have a source for it? None is listed, and a Google search turns up a vid of a C5 fitted with a Duramax. If none is found, I'm voting we just delete it. Carguy1701 (talk) 00:22, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Could not find any evidence of it, made the decision to delete it. Carguy1701 (talk) 03:53, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
