[Quote=Media.GM]Chevrolet Fulfills 1 Millionth Corvette Restoration Pledge

Sinkhole-damaged milestone returns to National Corvette Museum!
|
After more than four months and 1,200 man-hours of painstaking craftsmanship, restoration of the milestone 1 millionth Corvette – a white 1992 convertible – is complete.

It was unveiled today at the National Corvette Museum, where it returns as part of the permanent exhibit. The car was damaged on Feb. 12, 2014, when it and seven other rare Corvettes tumbled into a sinkhole that opened beneath the museum’s Skydome area.

“We felt it was important to restore this extremely significant car in Corvette's long, storied history,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. "When we disassembled it, we found that each employee involved in building it had signed a part of the car, which was fantastic and moving to see. It brought the history to life, and reinforced the importance of the project."

After recovery from the sinkhole, the 1 millionth Corvette was moved from the museum to the Design Center on GM’s Technical Center campus in Warren, Mich., for restoration. Approximately 30 craftspeople and technicians from GM Design’s Mechanical Assembly group, along with GM Service Operations, took on the project. Mechanical Assembly and the Fabrication Shops at GM Design build concept vehicles and maintain GM’s historic vehicle collection.

“As the one and only 1 millionth Corvette, its preservation was important to us as the designers of the vehicle – and as Corvette enthusiasts,” said Ed Welburn, vice president of GM Global Design. “The damage was significant in many ways; however we have one of the most highly skilled...

2016 Corvette Changes?

Aug 25, 2015 - 1:50 PM - by elegant
One is for real, though of minor importance. The other two are interesting, and might not mean anything, but then again? Anyway, here they are.

What is this new "COLOR HARMONY"? According to Mike Furman @ Criswell Chevrolet who shared this picture, this was on a standard Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic he received, with the standard black interior. What is "COLOR HARMONY?" Even Mike with his experience selling new Corvettes for 38 years and who has sold close to 4,000 new 'Vettes, has no idea what this tag means (printed it is in identical paper stock and in type font exactly as GM uses for other dashboard display information). He said, "it does not look like a new color."

Mike also shared this new method protecting the LT4's supercharger top plate. When the Z06's first came out, there was no protective cover. Then around March, Mike showed us the brand new "industrial masking tape" that covered the polished sections of the cover plate, and StingRay Forum member "PBC Builder," who works inside the Performance Built Center within BGA, sharded then that its purpose was to provide "in the factory" handling and subsequent shipping protection. Today Mike saw for the first time, this new supercharger top plate protection method.

And perhaps another 2016 change, or at least something that appeared on SRF member "RonsterZ06's" transparent top he bought from his parts department, is this plastic sleeve around the two targa top, front windshield header, "alignment pins." Is this just a shipping protection method? Or is it GM reacting to over a decade of roof squeaking, creaking and rattling targa top complaints and making this another one of its continuous upgrades to the Corvette? It... [Read More]

[PIC] General Motors' CEO Mary Barra in Her Corvette Z06 for the Woodward Dream Cruise

It was back in May that we published one of our most popular stories so far in 2015. That story featured photos of Mary Barra’s 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant. Since then, we’ve been wondering when we would actually see General Motors’ CEO in the car and yesterday our prayers were finally answered.

Ms. Barra posted a photo of herself Saturday morning in the Black Z06 convertible which she’s nicknamed “The Beast” and then she joined 1.5 million automotive fans as she headed out for Saturday’s Woodward Dream Cruise.

As a refresher, Mary Barra’s triple black Z06 Convertible was outfitted with the Z07 Performance Package with the carbon fiber aerodynamics. You can also see she has the Competition Sport seats and yellow calipers on the Brembo brakes.

In our initial story back in May, we were told that Mary’s Corvette had the new 8-speed automatic transmission, but we stand corrected as Mary replied to a twitter question confirming “The Beast” is manual 7-speed!

Following what I am sure was a full day of fun for the Chief Executive Officer, Mary had one more tweet later in the afternoon regarding “The Beast”:

"650 HP and no drag racing. Be safe!"

Driving a manual transmission 650-hp Corvette Z06 in the stop-and-go-fast traffic on Woodward is sure to give anyone a leg workout. But the fact that you call your

BGA's New Plant Manager

Aug 15, 2015 - 12:15 PM - by elegant
Kai Spande is a Corvette guy! Thanks to National Corvette Museum's quarterly magazine (comes with your membership), we are learning more about the Plant Mananger. Kai assumes the reigns on September 1st. Clearly, his construction experience was a factor in his now leading the last with its just-started $435,000,000, two-year, 45% expansion and remodel.

Corvette Beats Porsche

Even though this great news surfaced first in one sentence about two weeks ago, it continues to get media play. As in today...

Chevrolet Corvette Beats Porsche 911 In Latest JD Power Survey

Chevrolet spent years developing and refining the seventh-generation Corvette and it seems its efforts are being rewarded with strong sales and a collection of accolades from popular motoring magazines and websites.

Finally… finally — Corvette is not just a great alternative to over-priced imports. It’s a veritable equal, a sleeker, more refined rival set on upsetting the long-held philosophy that the Porsche 911 is the sports car to end all sports cars. As a matter of fact, the Corvette beat the Porsche 911 as the most satisfying car in its category in a new JD Power Survey released Wednesday.

The 911 topped the category last year, but now, after a raft of subtle revisions, the 2015 Corvette Stingray has swatted it aside. The last time the Corvette has topped the category was 10 years ago.

The company surveyed more than 84,000 people who bought a car in the last 90 days as part of its latest APEAL study, which asks dozens of questions about various aspects of the vehicle.

Audio system quality, acceleration and fuel economy were among the top characteristics that helped catapult Corvette to the top, a clear sign that sports car buyers require more than just big numbers and raw speed.

“Interestingly, storage was also an advantage vs. the competition in this segment— with owners citing more trunk space,” J.D. Power noted.

As they say: Pace, grace and, er, space.
