    The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray's Performance Data Recorder does exactly what it's name says it does: It allows drivers to record and analyze their performance behind the wheel.

    The Corvette PDR uses a 720p high-definition camera mounted in the windshield header, a microphone in the cabin and a GPS receiver that record and track the sports car's movements and sounds. They work together to produce a video with telemetry overlay, so you can see acceleration rates, lap times and g-forces. The system can be customized to show extensive performance data, or simply video of your drive like a traditional dash cam. You can review the footage in the car (while in park), but there's also an SD card slot to take the data with you for more advanced analysis. The system debuted on 2015 Corvettes.

    We tested the PDR with aggressive acceleration on some of Michigan's highways and twisting country roads, marveling at our prowess - or lack thereof - behind the wheel. We noticed everything from our steering angles and braking points to construction workers on the side of the road. The PDR captured our performance, warts and all. The system's extensive feedback will make you a better Corvette driver, whether you're at Road America or cruising on one of America's open roads.2015 Chevrolet Corvette Performance Data Recorder: Technology of the Year finalist originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 19 Nov 2014 21:00:00 EST.

    Best looking vette? C5/C6/C7

    I have grown accustomed to the look of the C7 and now prefer it over the other two. Old school Vette would have to be a '68 for me.
