General Motors hasn’t talked too much about the future of the Chevrolet Corvette range, letting car enthusiasts around the world feast their eyes with the current incarnations of the model. But a Transportation Design student, on his name James Robbins, created what could be a future Corvette.
In other words, he envisioned the future design of the Corvette, keeping the same language and proportions of the current models. The result is just impressive and the sporty and sleek Corvette would really become a breathtaking car if GM’s designers decide to go this way. Read more!

ROAD & TRACK Magazine features the Venom GT on the Cover of their February, 2011 issue. How does a streetable 933 horsepower at the rear wheels sound? How about 874 lb-ft of torque at the tires? It sounds mighty tasty to us, especially considering that those numbers come courtesy of regular 93 octane pump gas (no race fuel here, kiddies) and, again, are at the wheel. Ditch the drivetrain loss and power at the crank will easily crest 1,000 ponies. Check out the gallery of this awesome and powerful Hennessey Venom GT!
