First Drive: 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

It should fall right into the middle of the Corvette lineup. It doesn’t though… the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is the purist expression of the Corvette experience, and it’s the one you want.
To find this out, I trekked to Atlanta Motorsports Park to take in the latest version of Chevy’s hallowed Grand Sport. It’s a name with history, and the latest version is a 460 horsepower love letter to pure driving bliss.
The video above is for your eyes and ears. If you want to read more, check out this piece I wrote about the car for Jalopnik.
[Disclaimer: Chevrolet put me on a plane and flew me into the humid insanity that is Atlanta. My hotel had lovely air conditioning, and I was fed and given booze.]

    OK, so Chevy bought you a plane ticket, hotel room and picked up the tab for dinner…
    But what we all want to know is: What did Jalopnik have to buy you to get you back?!

      A man has to eat… and Jalopnik pays actual money, while Hooniverse pays in Internet Infamy (and occasional parts for my truck).

        Seems a fair deal. Wife and a growing daughter to support after all.
        Hope that your byline reads “Blooger at large”?

    Dig the Grand Sport a hell of a lot more than the C7Z. Really can’t get on board with the latter…too much power for 95% of the time. GS seems like the perfect medium.
