2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Leave It In Sport

December 16, 2013

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

I've reached the conclusion that on the street there's no reason to use anything except Sport mode in our Stingray. It's the mode that provides the right balance of response, sound and comfort. I'll be leaving it in Sport.

    I think this was addressed in the intro, but does it stay in sport after the ignition is shut off, or does it revert back to normal?

    I'd be interested in more details. How does it drive when NOT in Sport? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

    Sport mode means one of two things: 1) This is how it would normally drive if we weren't trying to maximize our results on the EPA's tests or 2) Doing nothing except making the ride worse because buyers confuse a harsh ride with "sportiness". At least it sounds like the Vette belongs in the first group.

    if you want the exhaust burble you can pull the fuse to leave the exhaust flaps permanently open

    @bankerdanny - It stays in the last mode selected. @bassrockerx - No need for any fuse-pulling. You're thinking about the old C6. On the C7 there is a simple option on the touch screen to turn off all exhaust sound management, which leaves it loud all
