General Motors has confirmed that Mary Barra will succeed Dan Akerson as CEO at the end of the year. Barra has been with General Motors Company [NYSE:GM] for 30 years and is promoted from her current post as head of Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain.

We’ve just driven the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible and we’re not shy to admit we'd probably take it over the coupe. There's really no shudder, no recognizable difference between the latest Corvette, whether you go for it in coupe or convertible form--really.

The next-generation Land Rover LR2 has been spotted ahead of its debut late next year. The new LR2 is expected to be bigger than Land Rover’s Range Rover Evoque but its proportions and styling should be similar.

You'll find all of this and more in today's car news headlines from around the High Gear Media network, right here at Motor Authority.
