2014 Corvette Stingray Will Start at $51,995

2014 Corvette Barrett JAckson

We already know that the 2014 Corvette Stingray C7 will ship with a 450hp 6.2L V8, seven-speed manual transmission, and a vastly superior interior than the C6. Now you tell me, isn’t that worth a measly 300 credits extra $2,000?

General Motors announced today that the C7 will cost just under $52,000 when it is released later this year. That’s an increase of just $2,395 over the C6, and most everything has been reworked, most obviously the exterior and interior. The leather-wrapped cockpit shown at the Detroit Auto Show will add an extra $8,005 to the bottom line, however, and the sport bucket seats tack on an additional $2,495. It’s a small price to pay to overcome what has been one of the main disappointments of the outgoing C6. The convertible will cost an even $5,000 more than the coupe.

About Cameron Rogers

Cameron Rogers is the founder and lead writer at Downshift Autos, the only automotive blog on the Internet*. Born in the back of an AMC Gremlin, Cameron vowed to never let this extraordinarily embarrassing detail define him, so help him God. He drives a GTI but absolutely will not shut up about it if somebody asks. He will not hesitate to let people know that no, they shouldn't get a Porsche 911 when a Morgan 3 Wheeler is so obviously the superior choice. He is obsessed with the seats of a Carrera GT and the steering wheel of a Fisker Karma. He once sat in the driver's seat of a Tesla Model S, his greatest accomplishment to date. He is just now realizing that writing an autobiography, however miniscule, in the third person is odd and unnerving. *As of this writing, Cameron has been informed that there are, in fact, many websites and blogs centered around cars and car culture. He regrets his grievous error.
