The cool part about reviewing new cars as part of your job is that you get to drive and write about a lot of very nice automobiles.

The uncool part is when you do it long enough, you get jaded by promises that this year’s edition of whatever you’re driving on a given week is inherently better than last year’s edition – or better than last week’s review car, for that matter. In that regard, I’ve learned to manage my expectations, or at least not get swept away in the hype.

There are no such problems with this week’s review car, a screamingly loud Velocity Yellow 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray coupe.

I will preface this review by simply saying that in the more than 20 years I’ve spent on this gig and more than 1,000 cars reviewed, the new seventh-generation, or C7, Corvette is one of my two favorite vehicles of all-time, the other being a Porsche 911 Turbo that costs more than double what the Corvette did.

There I said it.
