Digital technology marches inevitably forward, which means that electronic dashboards look like relics a few years after they're introduced. The 2014 Corvette Stingray avoids that pitfall by embracing the best of both worlds with a high-resolution eight-inch screen flanked by classic analog gauges. The real, physical needles help trick the eye into perceiving the whole thing as a fantastic analog piece, especially when the center screen is in sport mode, with its giant central tachometer mimicking a traditional instrument. Except that a real tach couldn't morph into a race-style bar graph, or a navigation screen, or whatever other new feature might be downloaded in years to come. [From $52,000; chevrolet.com]
