2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Brings The Heat

In the history of Chevrolet, there are few vehicles that made quite the splash that the Corvette did. The Corvette is nothing if not known for being one of the best sports cars that money can buy. Now, the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is taking it up a notch.

Game-changing handling

The racing game has officially been changed with this upgraded Corvette model. Where Z06 models have been known to overheat, the Grand Sport has just pure power. It’s wider with more aerodynamic changes, so it’s perfect for track use (or high-speed cruising).

Both the handling and brakes performed wonderfully, reported after testing. Top speeds do not intimidate this speed-demon of a vehicle! Racers will be pleased to learn that professional drivers have given this car the seal of approval.

Also, manual and automatic handle well over many factors. Miles per gallon are also reported to remain relatively high, even while driving at high speeds.

Joseph Auto Group carries many Corvette models. We have two Chevy stores – Joseph Chevrolet and Columbia Chevrolet – both in Cincinnati. While we may not have the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport in stock yet, we’re hoping we will soon! We want you to have the car of your dreams, so keep checking back.

Plans Announced to Retire Audi V8 engines in Favor of Electric

Audi vehicles are the perfect balance of performance and premium quality. All of their success depends largely on what the automaker puts under its models’ hoods –  no sacrifice of power. A wise company can change their product in anticipation where demand is headed, as market trends and consumer interest continue to change. We know that Audi is a smart company, and that is their plan.

2015 Audi R8 Spyder - plans to Retire Audi V8 engines

That’s why Audi has announced it is retiring its V8 engines in the coming years. They’re opting instead for battery-powered electric vehicles. After the most recent V8 engine—a turbocharged diesel with massive torque—is released with the new Audi SQ7, no more V8s will be added to the brand’s lineup.

When will this start to affect the Audi lineup?

In fact, Audi is changing almost a third of their lineup, anticipated, to be electric or hybrid by 2025. This means that Audi is phasing out gas-guzzling blocks like the V8s for more eco-friendly and fuel efficient engines. Audi is one of the many automakers making this change to stick with changing trends.

While plans to retire Audi V8 engines may disappoint some, we at Joseph Auto know that Audi won’t let its fans down. Even in the form of electric batteries, Audi’s performance excellence will still be apparent.
