There are auto enthusiasts transforming the Nissan R32 Skyline into a Chevrolet Camaro, and then this one who turned a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Duramax dually into ‘Razorbak’. This vehicle, with 145,000-miles on the odometer and clean title, had its cab as well as bed removed before a steel subframe was built onto the existing body mount points.
You’ve seen three-generations of Skylines race each other, now watch the 2023 Corvette Z06 take on a Nissan GT-R NISMO and a 1000hp R34 GT-R in a drag racing showdown. The C8 Corvette Z06 is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.5L LT6 V8 engine making 670 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque, mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Sleek and electrified, the 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray made its debut this week in celebration of its 70th birthday. Power comes from a naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 engine making 495 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, paired with a single electric motor generating 160 hp, for a combined 655 hp, mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends power to all wheels, enabling it to hit 60 mph in a mere 2.5 seconds.
There’s the VENOM 1000, and now a Corvette C7 ZR1 tuned by Hennessey Performance. With the HPE1000 package, the C7 ZR1 pumps out 1000 hp and 966 lb-ft of torque from its supercharged 6.2L V8 LT5 engine, mated to either a 7-speed Tremec TR-6070 manual transmission or 8-speed GM 8L90 automatic gearbox.

At first glance, this just appears to be a Chevrolet Camaro outfitted with a body kit, but in reality, it’s a heavily modified Nissan R32 Skyline. This person transformed their 1993 Nissan R32 Skyline into what appears to be a Bumblebee knockoff from the Transformers movies with a hood that just doesn’t seem to fit right.
Hennessey Performance Engineering is known for upgrading muscle cars and trucks to unheard of power levels, and their latest project is no exception. Meet the Hennessey Performance HPE850 Camaro ZL1 1LE. Just for reference, itt comes equipped with a supercharged Corvette Z06-sourced V8 engine that makes 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque straight from the factory.
The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV has just been revealed, and it’s set to take on the Tesla Model Y next year. Available in 1LT, 2LT, RS and SS performance trims, the latter of which makes 557 horsepower and 648 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to hit 60 mph in less than 4 seconds. On a full charge, you can get up to 320-miles of driving range, depending on the trim.
Stitched by Slick took a 1992 Chevrolet Camaro into the ‘IROC-Z06’, although it doesn’t have parts from a Z06. What the shop did install is the interior from a C8 Corvette and a C5-sourced 5.7L LS1 V8 engine into the American pony car. You read that right, this is the same interior from the mid-engined C8 Corvette, but with a few modifications.
Long before Elon Musk’s Tesla, Inc. existed, there was Navlab, a series of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles developed by teams from The Robotics Institute at the School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University. Kicking things off, we have the Navlab 1, which is based on a 1986 Chevrolet panel van. It featured five racks of computer components, including three Sun workstations, video hardware, a GPS receiver, and a Warp supercomputer. Unfortunately, it suffered from many software limitations and was not fully functional until the late 1980s.
