2020 Chevrolet Corvette to have 'untunable' ECU - report

The eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette will be a radical departure from all of its predecessors, especially under the skin where everything is all new. Sources have told Muscle Cars and Trucks the new Corvette will use a new encrypted electronic control unit (ECU). While encrypted ECUs aren't new, the eighth-generation Corvette will also debut General Motors's new CAN bus electrical platform, which prioritises cybersecurity.

Genovation GXE: Manual, electric Corvette set for CES debut

Genovation Cars will use CES 2018 to unveil the GXE, an all-electric Corvette capable of topping 350km/h. So, how does the GXE deliver that monstrous top speed? To start with, it makes a lot of power and torque: 597kW and 950Nm, to be precise. Along with the headline speed figure, Genovation is claiming a sub-3.0 second sprint to 97km/h.

2017 Geneva motor show: Epic from-the-show-floor experience

If you don't already know, Geneva is in Switzerland. And while some Aussies might miss having motor shows here in Oz, few will see that as enough of an excuse to splash out to attend a major international one. Luckily, this year's 2017 Geneva motor show (on until March 19) was my first, and it was so good, I didn't want anyone to miss out.

Holden Ute: pumped Aussie test mule for next-gen mid-engine Corvette spied

A mid-engined Holden SS V ute to mark the end of production? We wish. What you see here is, according to US publication Car and Driver, an early prototype of a mid-engined Corvette C8 rumoured to be in the pipeline for the US brand's 2017 model year. The (speculated) early Corvette C8 prototype uses the 5040mm long, 1899mm wide body of the Holden Commodore SS V Ute, which appears to be in VE Series II guise.

Korres Project 4: 7.0L Corvette heart for Greek supercar

A one-off Greek supercar dubbed the Korres Project 4 is set to be unleashed at a motorsport event in its homeland this weekend. Created by architect and designer Dimitris Korres, the Project 4 borrows its 377kW/637Nm 7.0-litre 'LS7' V8 from the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, which catapults the low-slung sports car's 1600kg mass from 0-100km/h in 3.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 300km/h.
