2017 Z06 Spotted And More

Aug 22, 2016 - 9:16 PM - by elegant
Yes, the proverbial "in the wild" spotting. This confirms that there are no 2017 Z06 exterior-visible changes. Jag and I found this car under a parking lot street light in Bowling Green, with just enough light from it and our cell phones to closely inspect the entire exterior and confirm that even months from now, the only way you will be able to determine whether the Z06 you are looking at is a 2017, is whether it is Sterling Blue, Black Rose or Watkins Glen Gray.

First, confirmation via its VIN that it is a 2017.

And now proof there there are not any additional hood vents for those who are still thinking that there will be these extra vents for better cooling. While we earlier today again confirmed that there will be additional 2017 Z06 cooling, none of its components can be seen from outside the car.

This car has a Kentucky dealer license plate.

Finally, sad news for those who are wishing for the first Z06's to be delivered within the next month. Does not mean that ordering window won't open up this Thursday or next, but that the Plant is not, in my personal option based on what has been shared, going to have a 2017 Z06 TPW prior to the week of September 26th. Hope that I am wrong, and that the initial TPW's will be as early as September 19th for this model, but I doubt it.

Other things also learned today were:

* The actual number of C7 parts, at 4,725.
*Lastly, more sad news, that not one Black Rose customer car has yet to be painted. In fact during the public tour today, the NCM Tour Guide pointed out that at the tour entry point, that there is still a missing Black Rose gas cap on the "current model year" pole as the public starts their tours, noting that September will be the...

C7 Sales Down; Hopefully GS Reverses This Trend!

Aug 02, 2016 - 1:02 PM - by elegant
No matter how many C7's are being produced, looking at the month to month and other comparisons, C7 sales have not been strong this year. We hope the excitement about the Grand Sport changes things starting the next monthly sales report on August 1st, and with producing over 40,000, 2016's, and with sales where they are right now and a GS "bump", should result in 35,000+ calendar year sales. Go GS!!!

2017 GS Collectors Edition, VIN 0001, sells at auction for $170,000

First VIN 001 2017 Corvette Grand Sport Collector's Edition Sells for $170,000 - Corvette: Sales, News & Lifestyle

I saw this car on the production line when I did the factory tour last month. It wasn't complete enough to tell it was going to be GS Collectors Edition, though.

Two surprises were in store for us on the first day of the 2016 Barrett-Jackson Auction in Palm Beach. On Friday at 6:00 pm, the first retail 2017 Corvette Grand Sport Collector’s Edition was auctioned for charity. While the general consensus was that this vehicle would be just another in a long line of VIN 001 Corvettes purchased at auction by Rick Hendrick, it in fact was sold to another dealership owner at what is generally regarded as a bargain price for a VIN 001 Corvette.


First, a little about the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport. We saw the Grand Sport Collector’s Edition Coupe for the first time today and we wondered what our reaction would be to seeing the Torsion Blue interior against the new Watkins Glen Gray exterior. Well, we love it! Such a bold combination in our opinion and the comments we heard from the general public as they viewed the car was about the same.

Once the car was outside, the Watkins Glen Gray really looks sharp. The Grand Sport really held no surprises for us after it was revealed a month ago in Geneva, however we did find something new when the hood was opened. The hood liner features the C7 logo and “Grand Sport”. The dash plaque inside was hard to get a photo of, but we do see that it reads “0/1,000” which again suggests that there will 1,000 Collector’s Edition produced. The real question is how many will stay in the USA vs those that are exported.

Chevrolet celebrated the Grand Sport by giving away free t-shirts at the Chevrolet display which had the “Grand Sport” name on it and the
