Talking Cars 333: 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Test Results

Plus, we discuss tires and proper inflation

We share our final test results and impressions of the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette. This highly anticipated, superpowerful car made a major shift this generation to a midengine configuration, bringing with it a radical redesign. Is this supercar still as much of a crowd-pleaser as ever? Does moving the engine behind the driver make it handle even better? And how does this car fit within the world of other sporty cars?

We also answer: “If I replace my original tires with ones that are the same size but from a different brand, do I still follow the same tire pressure recommended on the doorsill, or are there alternative pressures for the new tire?”

Jen Stockburger

I never anticipated that engineering, the auto industry, and a few hundred tire changes and child seat installations would have brought me here: director of day-to-day operations at Consumer Reports' fabulous 327-acre Auto Test Center. The bonus is that the track's location in rural Connecticut leaves me close enough to home to also enjoy my children and husband while still squeezing in time for gardening, riding horses, and hunting for antiques.
