Porsche Taycan vs. World’s Fastest C8 Corvette With Emelia Hartford

Check out this Video from Hoonigan to see this Porsche Taycan vs. Emelia Hartford’s Twin Turbo built C8 Corvette.

They race three times and every time the Taycan launches best because of the electric all wheel drive. However, the C8 Corvette comes around twice and takes the win!

If you want to learn more about Emelia Hartford and her C8 Corvette that is now 1000HP and ran a 9.4 in the quarter mile we have a post about Emelia we have been keeping updated with all the things she is doing to her C8 Corvette.

Super Gloss Chalk Grey Inozetek Wrap on a C8 Corvette

If you been following our C8 Corvette Blog from the beginning (Since March 2020 when we got our C8 Corvette) you will know we built out this Lowered Satin Matte Black 3M Wrapped C8 Corvette with Vossen Wheels, Cicio Performance Lowering Collars, Clearplex, Kooks Headers, and Soul Performance Sport Cats.

You can take a look at our previous C8 Corvette build here.

However, since it’s been a year and we wanted to change it up we just started the process of a new C8 Corvette build that includes the Super Gloss Chalk Grey Inozetek Wrap you see below.

Procharger Supercharger C8 Corvette About to be Released!

As we wrote about back in November, 2020 Procharger is releasing a supercharger for the C8 Corvette that boosts horsepower by 225+ HP in testing.

That’s over 700 Horsepower for the C8 Corvette base model stingray Z51 package and our guess more the C8 Z06 will produce from the factory when General Motors and Chevrolet start production and selling the C8 Z06 in 2022.

If you love the C8 Corvette as much as we do and willing to put out 10-13k for this Procharger Supercharger for the C8 Corvette plus what it costs to install from a local performance shop in your area you can basically get C8 Z06 performance with your current C8 Corvette stingray!

Here is what Procharger said in a recent blog post and if you read the comments in the latest video below you will see they are really close to taking orders and launching this bad boy.

Track Testing with the ProCharger Supercharged C8 Corvettes

HAVING ONE COMPANY R&D CAR IS GOOD, BUT TWO…OH SO BETTER!

Data, Data, and more Data…it’s what testing is all about here at ProCharger superchargers. And what better way to get that done, than to have DOUBLE the amount of data with two company-owned C8 Corvettes for our engineering teams to use on the street, the dyno, and the track. In this week’s blog post we will tease you with a great video of the sights and sounds from the latest road course adventure. Without more delay, let’s get to the video and the details!

Corvette Museum Releases 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Build Stats

Per the Corvette Museum the most popular build was the coupe and the most popular color of the C8 Corvette was Torch Red. That makes a lot of sense since that was the color of the C8 Corvette Unveil car in July 2019.

Also, although Rapid Blue is a favorite color of most C8 Corvette owners and in the C8 Corvette Forums dealers told people if they ordered a Rapid Blue C8 Corvette it could delay the order even before Covid or UAW strike hit and already delayed everything.

Here are the C8 Corvette build stats per Corvette Museum

Though production of the 2020 Corvette is expected to continue through early December, with order changes no longer being allowed the team at GM was able to go ahead and release the final stats.

Coupe was the most popular of the two models available with 82.4% of the 20,368 total 2020s produced. As for color line up, Torch Red was the most popular for 2020 with 25% of the cars in that hue. The complete final color line up is as follows:

  • Torch Red (25%)
  • Arctic White (15%)
  • Black (11.7%)
  • Sebring Orange (6.8%)
  • Elkhart Lake Blue (6.7%)
  • Rapid Blue (6%)
  • Ceramic Matrix Gray (5.97%)
  • Blade Silver (5.55%)
  • Shadow Gray (5.45%)
  • Long Beach Red (5.25%)
  • Accelerate Yellow (3.38%)
  • Zeus Bronze (2.69%)

Carbon Flash Badges were the most popular with 91.6% of the cars. The Z51 package was selected on 76%. 3LT was the most popular package with 46.4%. Front Lift was opted for on 58.4% of the cars while performance exhaust (NPP) is on 89.2%. The GT2 seats were the most popular pick with 61.6%. Painted Carbon Flash Open Spoke Wheels were the most popular with 41.7%, closely followed by the Bright Silver Open Spoke with 36.9%. The National Corvette Museum will have delivered 943 Corvettes for the 2020 model year.

C8 E-Ray Corvette, No C8 Grand Sport?

Check out this video by Liberty Drives on YouTube as he covers the new C8 Corvette E-Ray or the C8 E Ray which is rumored to be an electric C8 Corvette vs. the C8 Grand Sport.

Per Liberty  Drives:

We all knew sooner or later Chevrolet would make a hybrid C8 Corvette for their E-Ray name. Now there are spy shots and videos out of the test mule for the car and info on when we can expect trims like the E-Ray and Zora. Let me know what you think of the E-Ray replacing the Grand Sport down in the comments. I was a fan of the Grand Sports but I think this makes sense for the lineup.
