2015 StingRay Pricing

Jul 17, 2014 - 11:31 PM - by elegant
2015 StingRay pricing leaked, and it is a pleasant surprise for some -- though not all. It will depend in which options one wants.

Some examples:

Base pricing for all four models UNCHANGED!

The 2LT mid-level interior trim package went down $ -50.

The 3LT interior trim package went up $1,445, however, now includes previous, separate Upper Interior Suede package (IWE), which was a $995 2014 option, AND includes the Performance Data Recorder as standard equipment.

8-speed auto (compared to outgoing 6-speed auto) = $ +375.

Carbon fiber aero package (CFZ) = $2,995

Nav/PDR (for 1LT & 2LT) = $1,795. This compares to 2014 navigation system being $795, i.e., adding the 2015 PDR required component resulted in a $1,000 price increase.

Whereas the end of 2014 Z-51 pricing was a $4,000 option, if you added for 2014 the NPP Performance Exhaust, your post March 3rd Z-51 pricing for the two was $5,200; however, the 2015 pricing for the Z-51 option -- which now mandatorily includes the NPP system, now totals $5,000.

As previously shared, the ZF1 appearance package is $1,995.

If one chooses the Appearance Package for the coupe (5KW), that will cost $995, whereas the same package for the convertible (option 5KX) will cost $800.

The five piece luggage package (S2L) dropped $75, to $920.

Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic (G1H) will be a $495 option.

Clear Protective Film Package (WA8) = $1,300.

Body colored exterior package (grills and vents monochromatic, option EFY) = $995.

More examples to follow in subsequent posts, but some folks are finding positive surprises compared to expectations, some finding negative surprises.

National Corvette Museum Finalizes Sinkhole plans

Aug 30, 2014 - 11:24 AM - by jsvette
Directly from NCM publication today: The National Corvette Museum Board of Directors held their quarterly meeting and finalized plans for repair of the Museum’s Skydome building, and the eight Corvettes affected by the February 12, 2014 sinkhole collapse.
After careful review of additional information and revised plans with price quotes from the construction company, the board voted to completely fill in the sinkhole.
“We really wanted to preserve a portion of the hole so that guests for years to come could see a little bit of what it was like, but after receiving more detailed pricing, the cost outweighs the benefit,” said Museum Executive Director Wendell Strode. “At the June board meeting, the information available at that time indicated a cost of around $500,000 more to keep the hole, but after incorporating additional safety features and vapor barriers for humidity control, the price tag rose to $1 million more than the cost to put the Skydome back how it was.”
Keeping even a portion of the sinkhole would require 35 foot retaining walls to be built inside of the sinkhole, additional micro piling, visible steel beams running through the hole, and soil nailing. All of these additional structural features are to ensure the safety of the sinkhole and prevent cracking and breaking of the sides in the future, which could result in stability issues, but take away from the natural look of the original sinkhole. The board also considered future maintenance issues that could arise if the hole was kept and the possibility that the hole wouldn’t look like a naturally occurring sinkhole any longer.
“The interest in our new attraction has been phenomenal so we do plan to leave it ‘as-is’ through our Vets ‘n Vettes event November 6-8, 2014, after which time we will begin the process of remediating and filling the hole,” Strode added.
Chevrolet and the National Corvette Museum will restore three of the Corvettes that were damaged when they were swallowed up by the sinkhole.
Chevrolet will restore the 2009 Corvette ZR1 prototype, known as the Blue Devil, and the 1-millionth Corvette produced – a white 1992 convertible. The GM Heritage Center will oversee this process. In addition, the restoration of the 1962 Corvette will be funded by Chevrolet, but will be handled by the National Corvette Museum. A restoration shop has not yet been determined. ... [Read More]

NCM Motorsports Park & Spring Mountain

Aug 29, 2014 - 2:55 PM - by elegant
During the National Corvette Museum’s 20th Anniversary Celebration, a partnership was announced naming the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain as the “Official Performance Driving School of the National Corvette Museum” and “Official Partner of the NCM Motorsports Park.”

“We are pleased to come to a multi-year agreement with the National Corvette Museum and it’s new Motorsports Park,” said Ron Fellows, a charter member of Corvette Racing and 2011 Corvette Hall of Fame inductee. “All of us at Spring Mountain and the school are looking forward to this partnership to better serve the Corvette and performance driving community on a number of initiatives.” Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain has been successfully operating high performance driving schools just outside of Las Vegas, NV since 2008, with nearly 30,000 graduates to date. As “The Official High Performance Driving School of Corvette” and the exclusive home of the C7 Corvette Owners School, partnering with the National Corvette Museum and Motorsports Park only benefits the Corvette community. The 186-acre NCM Motorsports Park features a 3.15 mile road course which is comprised of two circuits, “East” and “West”. The teams at Corvette Racing and Pratt and Miller advised the Museum on the layout, incorporating features from their most challenging track, the Le Mans circuit. The facility welcomes all makes and models of vehicles, including motorcycles and is located adjacent to I-65 in Bowling Green, Kentucky. “Joining forces with Ron Fellows and Spring Mountain furthers our mission to offer a safe and challenging environment where drivers of all ages, interests and skill levels can become more proficient behind the wheel,” said Mitch Wright, NCM Motorsports Park General Manager. “Spring Mountain has a long-standing track record of successful driving programs so we are excited to have them as our Official Partner at the track.” Look for an announcement in the coming weeks regarding programs and curriculum at the NCM Motorsports Park; featuring the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School, space will be limited![/Quote]

All Z06's Have 3-Piece Spoilers!

Aug 28, 2014 - 2:35 PM - by elegant
Chief Z06 Design Engineer announced today that even the stage 1 Z06 will have a three-piece, "wicker bill spoiler," that the previously considered Z-51 spoiler, even as modified/enlarged will not provide enough downforce for the Z06, and thus has been eliminated from further consideration.

The above picture is the current version of the stage 2 spoiler; note that it does not have a center, translucent "wicker bill bridge" section that the Z07 spoiler will have.

However, take the above pictured stage 2 spoiler, and lower the two, outside, tall wicker bill sections by 30 cm (1 1/4"), and you have visualized what a stage 1 deck spoiler will look like (picture below). Note that unlike the Z07 spoiler, with its adjustable wicker bill bridge center-section, the stage 1 spoiler will not have visible nuts and bolts (nothing to adjust).

"Z06 Day" @ BGAP

Aug 27, 2014 - 5:00 PM - by elegant
Well, not officially being called that, yet seventeen (17) Z06's went down the line today. It was like Christmas day!!!

This Z06 is at the national Corvette Museum right now; another one is to be revealed tomorrow.

My "volunteer assignment" (died, and went to heaven; lucky me) during the National Corvette Museum's 20th Anniversary Celebration is as a Tour Guide Assistant at the Assembly Plant, and therefore took many tours today. Personally saw several black Z06's, couple of Crystal Red Metallic ones, four yellow ones, and two white ones.

One last highly subjective learning was that the Z06, just like the StingRay, looks KILLER in every color!

Learned a few other things, some corroboration of previous reportings, some new news. Confirmed that LT4's will start to be made here in several months, in time for the expected December start of Z06 customer cars. All engines for certain optioned Z06's is will be made at BGAP, but what that option(s) has not been approved to be publicly shared yet, though there is a consistent rumor that BGAP will be the sole assembly site for LT4 assembly for all Z07 cars. Could not get confirmation, nor denial of that rumor.

Another rumor that was close to being substantiated today was that, due to the porosity of the Corvette's sheet molded compound body panels, that the plant is now double priming the panels before the body colored paint is applied. The only confirmation I could get, is at the Plant is at least experimenting with the double priming process for the body panels. Whether double priming started on all 2015's or not, is not yet public knowledge, nor whether that or other means are being employed to improved paint for the 2015's.

The most surprising thing that I learned today, is that I saw the new Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic on front fascias, and as verified by several other folks who are not color defective as I am, it is actually a darker color than Torch Red -- ar least in the lighting in that part of the plan where the front facia racks were located. Several folks on different tours spontaneously used the same word we have heard before in describing that color, e.g. rust!
