2011 Corvette

The Evolution of the C6 continues for the 2011 Corvette. To help distinguish the 2011 model year from other years two new colors were added. Much to the liking of new Corvette owners, Inferno Orange and Supersonic Blue joined the line up of popular vivid colors. In addition, Corvette gave new owners an added option of contrasting headlight colors for an added dash of color. Owners have the difficult decision of choosing between Cyber Gray, Black or Blade Silver. To add a little more refinement to the cockpit GM opted to add custom color stitching for interior finishes. This thoughtful and much needed improvement gives Corvette lovers the choice of blue, red or yellow stitching. The addition of a USB input to the Navigation Radio will allow owners to plug in USB devices to the NAV Radio. In staying with the theme of improvements, the brakes have been up-sized across all Vette models. The Coupe and Convertibles receive larger cross-drilled rotors. The Grand Sport receives even more massive and stronger brakes! With standard six-piston front and four piston rear calipers this amazing braking power is sure to plaster your eyeballs to the back of your eyelids when stopping for that poor hapless blind and indecisive squirrel! Transitioning this stopping force to the ground and hopefully not our squirrel are several new styles of wheels. The new designs on the coupe and convertible are available in Silver, Competition Gray, Machine Face and Chrome. Now if such a foolish squirrel did exist he could be forgiven for his offending impedance given his handicaps and the fact that the C6 Corvettes still carries a whole heck of a lot of Horsepower for 2011!

The power for all models stays the same.
ZR1 638 HP
Z06 505 HP
Coupe, Convertible, Grand Sport @ 430 HP. An optional dual-mode exhaust system brings a power rating increase to 436 horses. This option is more for those that want to blow the clothes of unsuspecting passerby’s! Well, not really, but when you stomp on the go pedal it will sound how it should rather then what Big Brother wants! God bless ingenuity!

To round off the changes for 2011, Magnetic Ride Control is available on Grand Sport models. This includes Goodyear F1 Supercar Gen 2 tires when equipped with the manual transmission. GM added a sportier Six-speed paddle shift automatic transmission. This allows paddle use to override gear selection in Drive mode.

Established in 2008 by Chris Trautman, Corvette Web Central quickly grew into one of the top leading Corvette enthusiast websites globally. 

"This website is a passion of mine, just as much as being a Corvette owner," says Chris.  He was frustrated trying to find information on the internet about Corvettes which was was not biased or influenced somehow. 

He has owned three Corvettes over the last twenty years and does not plan to stop owning one anytime soon.
