The Best Cars
Chevrolet Corvette Z06
No auto show would be complete without Chevys quintessential sports car. It could be considered blasphemy in some circles to chastise this new model, but the Corvette now has plenty of tough competition in the luxury performance car segment, and this latest model does little to make it stand out. Chevrolet hasnt done much to overhaul its exterior. Perhaps thats because the automaker is reluctant to tinker with an icon. That may not be the wisest decision, with so many cool models of a similar class nipping at its heels
