Highlights of Detroit auto show include 2014 Corvette
The North American Auto Show annually brings the tour of auto shows back to its spiritual home of Detroit, Michigan. This year's edition was lit up by the most American of automakers, as GM saved the introduction of its all new 2014 Corvette Stingray for the local and international motor industry press here in Detroit. The rakish new design for the carmaker's flagship sportscar drew mostly kudos, though some longtime fans resented the switch to aggressive squared taillights (a design cue from the latest Camaro).

Excerpt: "Here are the show's highlights:

-- CORVETTE: The all-new Corvette, branded the Stingray to evoke the 1963 model, but with styling that evokes Italian supercars while still retaining a bit -- see the back end -- of the Chevrolet identity. At first glance it was not so different from the Ferrari F12 sitting a few steps away, its own design accommodating a few American muscle car lines. The test will be on the track: the Corvette sports 450 horsepower and carbon fiber based weight reductions, and the base model hits 100 kilometers an hour (60 miles per hour) in four seconds flat.

'This car is the reason I work at GM,' General Motors executive Mark Reuss said."
