Corvette Stingray: Another one crashes

Corvette Stingray 2014 hasn't been on the market very long, but two crashes have shown up in the past week. Is the 2014 Corvette Stingray safe?

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is revealed at media previews for the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. A second Corvette Stingray has crashed, though the car hasn't been on the market very long.

The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2014 hasn't been off the delivery truck for very long, but the carnage is already beginning. What may have been the first customer Corvette Stingray crash showed up just last week, and now another Stingray has bit the dust.

This image comes from Corvette Forum, although the poster was not aware of the circumstances of the crash, or whether the occupant(s) made it out unscathed.

Judging by the imploded windshield and other topside damage, it appears this Corvette was on its roof at one point. Either that, or the owner tried to reenact a scene from The Fast & The Furious.

The damage is limited to the top of the car, making it into an impromptu convertible.

The front of the car is blocked by a pillar in the photo, but we can see that the hood can still open. The front fenders, doors, and even the wheels also appear to be untouched.

Sadly, this probably won't be the last time we see a Corvette Stingray in this state. Wh don't know when the next crash will happen, but we do know that the Internet will be there to tell us when it does.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
