Chevrolet has confirmed that it will extend the pause in 2021 Corvette production for a second week.

The automaker announced last week that the Bowling Green Assembly Plant would be shut from February 1-8, citing “supply chain issues.” It soon emerged that production was halted due to a lack of aluminum structural components and transmissions.

In a statement issued to GM Authority, GM Bowling Green Corvette Assembly communications manager Rachel Bagshaw commented that the extension of the production pause has been brought on by an ongoing parts supply issue, without providing more details. Bagshaw did stress, though, that the issue is unrelated to the global chip shortage which has impacted all major car manufacturers around the world.

Chevrolet began producing 2021 model year Corvettes on December 11, 2020. Updates are minor but include two new colors, Red Mist Tintcoat Metallic and Silver Flare Metallic. Moreover, the 2021 car is available with Magnetic Selective Ride Control suspension as a standalone option rather than being exclusive to Z51 Performance Pack models like the 2020 model, and the updated ‘Vette also includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

No mechanical modifications were made to the car for 2021. As such, it continues to rock a 6.2-liter naturally-aspirated V8 delivering 495 hp and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm) of torque with the available Performance exhaust. Prices for the 2021 Corvette Stingray start at $59,995 including a $1,095 destination freight charge and increase to $67,495 for the Convertible.


近幾年來,豐田集團造車技術有著飛躍提升,從 TNGA 底盤問世、GR 性能計畫均是有目共睹,不過在多媒體系統上卻是近乎不變,對上各競品品牌,成為較明顯弱勢,接下來豐田集團將推出次世代車載系統,據傳已在最終開發階段,假想對手就是 Tesal FSD 系統!

不論 Toyota 或 Lexus,現行車載系統是品牌弱勢之處,新世代系統正在催生中。

據《彭博社》消息來源,豐田集團正在極力開發新世代車載系統,預計命名為 Arene,是為了未來與自駕技術做串連的強大科技系統,根據消息指出,這套系統能支援多項網路升級技術,並針對聲控語音強化,利用聲控進行車輛操作與支援自動駕駛,將與 Tesal FSD 一決高下。

為了新系統開發,豐田集團委任之前任職 Google 自動駕駛技術團隊,由 James Kuffner 擔任首席執行官,並且積極尋找矽谷專業領域人士協助測試,該系統正在最終開發階段,相信近期就會有好消息。

Toyota has already confirmed that the GR Yaris won’t make its way to our market, as we will instead get a different hot hatch in the near future, so should we be upset about it?

Actually, we should, because this isn’t your typical fast hatchback, as it has true rallying DNA, having been built as a WRC homologation special.

Everything about it is exquisite, from the bespoke platform, which combines the front end of the GA-B (regular Yaris) with the rear end of the GA-C (Toyota’s compact models), to the all-wheel drive system. Opt for the Circuit Pack and you get a performance-tuned suspension, Torsen front and rear limited-slip differentials, and 18-inch forged wheels wrapped in 225/40 Michelin Pilot Sport 4s tires.

The European variant of the GR Yaris has 257 HP (261 PS / 192 kW) and 266 lb-ft (360 Nm) of torque produced by the 1.6-liter three-pot. It sprints from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in less than 5.5 seconds and maxes out at 143 mph (230 km/h).

It has a go-kart-like feel, the reviewer notes, and a bouncy suspension, great manual gearbox, and a special design with wide fenders, bespoke front and rear bumpers, large roof wing, and frameless windows. On the other hand, this is a subcompact with a sloping roofline, so while the rear legroom may be somewhat decent, the headroom certainly isn’t, and neither is boot space.

As for pricing, customers living in the United Kingdom will have to pay at least £29,995 (equal to $41,185) for the GR Yaris, whereas Germans can get it from €33,200 ($39,997).
