Corvette Blogger first turned our attention towards Coughlin’s 2016 Corvette intel. According to the dealer, there will be a range of new body and interior colors, along with new colors for the convertible canvas roof. A new shade of yellow will replace the current Velocity Yellow shade, while a new red color called Crystal Red Tint Coat will also be on offer.

Convertible 2016 Corvettes will be offered with a Bastille Red canvas top or a Night Shadow Blue top. New colors for the interior include Spice Red and a new sueded black or sueded red option. Additionally, the Twilight Blue interior option will trickle down to standard cars from the C7 Z06 and the ability to choose either Red or Yellow stitching will return. As a side note, Coughlin believes some of these options will be part of a special edition package and may not be offered as standalone choices.

Other additional options for 2016 include two-tone seats, carbon flash and spectra grey exterior trim, a new full length Satin Black stripe, new wheel codes for both Stingray and Z06 models, and new exterior decals for the Z06. There’s also word of a carbon fiber hood option, however the C7 already has a carbon hood, leading Coughlin to wonder if an exposed carbon hood might be offered.

The most interesting nugget of info found lurking in the 2016 Corvette’s order guide was the brief mention of a C7.R Special Edition. It’s much too early to say what

C7 Sales EXTREMELY Strong!

Apr 03, 2015 - 8:35 PM - by elegant
Thanks to CorvetteBlogger, we have details on the powerful C7 March sales, and also historical monthly and yearly Corvette sales going back through 2006.

General Motors posted the monthly sales figures for March 2015 this week and we have great news for Corvette fans. The C7 Corvette – buoyed by sales of the 2015 Corvette Z06 – had its second best month ever and the highest sales totals since the very first month the C7 Corvette Stingray became available in October 2013.

For the month of March 2015, GM delivered 3,785 Corvettes which was an 8.8% gain over the 3,480 Corvettes sold during the same time period in 2014. Year to date (January-March 2015), a total of 8,517 Corvettes have been sold which is a 4.1% increase over the 8,179 Corvettes delivered during the same time in 2014.

A month earlier, GM reported 2,605 Corvettes have been delivered (February 2015). So March 2015′s sales increased a total 1,180 Corvettes or 45.3% over the previous month!

So why the healthy increase in sales during March? Corvette owners have waited a long time to get the high-performance Corvette with the auto transmission and Chevrolet finally started delivery of the Corvette Z06 with an 8-Speed automatic in March. Like the previous new model rollouts, GM built up an inventory of Corvette Z06s with the 8-Speed autos while they were doing their final quality checks and those Corvettes were finally released to be shipped to their respective dealers for customer delivery.

Another way to look at the sales figures is on a daily basis. The March 2015 Sales period was 26 days long. If you took the March total of 3,785 Corvettes, that means that 146 Corvettes were delivered to their new owners each day during the sales period.

And one final note

It is an annual rite of spring that means Opening Day is just around the corner.

A Velocity Yellow Corvette Z06 and a special Midnight Edition Silverado eased into their parking spaces high atop the Chevrolet Fountain behind centerfield in Comerica Park on Thursday. Each vehicle was lifted into place by crane – a three-hour process.

“As the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball, what better way could Chevrolet show our love of the game than by giving our vehicles a bird’s eye view of our hometown team?” asked Paul Edwards, vice president, Chevrolet marketing.

Chevrolet has sponsored the fountain, which features an array of water displays and the sound of a tiger growling with each Detroit home run, for the last six seasons. The brand chooses select vehicles from its lineup to display each year.

“We like to think of these vehicles as the Chevrolet cheering section to drive those centerfield home runs,” Edwards said.

Last week was a big one in the world of fast cars. The TX2K annual meet and races were held from March 19-22, and Harris County Sheriffs was ready for the racing to spill on to the streets. They employed a new Corvette, equipped with the PDR, to suss out the offenders and blend in to the scene. They were able to observe racers lining up and then going hammer down on the streets of Houston. They ended up making several arrests and even turned up one DUI.

LT4's New/Better S&H Protection

Mar 19, 2015 - 11:29 PM - by elegant
The top of the LT4 is called the supercharger top plate (or supercharger cover plate). It is one expensive piece of aluminum, painted with high temp paint, then machined for visual enhancement. It costs approximately $500. When I was doing my Buyers Tour saw many LT4's with a black plastic, temporary, top protective covering. However, GM has just upped its handling and shipping protection.

Needless to say, GM wants to avoid damaging during/right after initial motor assembly; transport to BGAP if the LT4 was assembled in Tonawanda, New York; while the motor moves around the Plant; is placed into the car, and finally, while it is transported to the dealership.

As soon as it is assembled (both locations), it traveled with a large, semi-rigid, protective black plastic covering, up until the time it get shipped to the part of the Plant involved with staging/sequencing area. With its removal there, just prior to sequencing, however, left the LT4's top cover unprotected from that point until arrival at the dealership.

My guesses (not confirmed) is that removable protective removable covering was a little less than perfect in doing its job, or more probably, there was subsequent minor scratching between the time it left the engine assembly area, and the finished Z06 left the Plant. I surmise this because I noticed some light surface scratches in the polished aluminum raised part of my top cover plate at the very start of my PDI (scratches that were later polished out by my body shop).

Starting today, Z06's while be arriving at dealerships with additional, protective, yellow tape. Thanks to our forum member "PBC Builder" who is a key member of the Performance Build Center within the Plant, we learned the following.
