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

Student Places in GM automotive service contest - School wins Corvette

Jul 10, 2016 - 3:17 PM - by meyerweb
MCC Automotive Student Brings Home The Silver…And A Corvette - Lee's Summit Tribune - Lee's Summit News

Good job by Jonathan, but it sucks that he doesn't get to keep the Corvette.

It’s been a sweet ride for a recent Metropolitan Community College graduate. Not only has Jonathan Robertson brought home the silver for MCC, he is also the reason the MCC-Longview campus will be the home of a brand new Chevrolet Corvette.

Robertson and fellow MCC-Longview classmate Quinn Kielty put the skills they learned through the General Motors Automotive Service Educational Program (GMASEP) to the test as regional finalists in the SkillsUSA 2016 National Leadership and Skills Contest, in Louisville, Ky.

From June 20-26, SkillsUSA, a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce, hosted students from across the country in series of competitive events.

“Pretty amazing week indeed,” says the students’ mentor and coach, David Patience, automotive department coordinator at MCC-Longview.

The SkillsUSA Championships are competitive events showcasing the best career and technical education students in the nation. Contests begin locally and continue through the state and national levels.

“Both Quinn and Jon won gold medals at the state level, just to qualify for this amazing event,” says Patience.

Thousands competed in the multi-million-dollar event that occupied a space equivalent to 16 football fields.

Robertson excelled in an automotive service technology contest, where contestants were run through an array of 12 stations plus a written exam. These 12 stations were designed to test every relevant skill in the automotive industry, from precision measuring and meter usage to customer service.

A silver medal was presented to Robertson on June 24 for his work. He also received numerous tools, service equipment and scholarship offers as part of his award package.

Kielty did MCC proud as well. “He did an excellent job of explaining and demonstrating proper service procedures

Corvette - The most talked about car on the Internet

Jul 08, 2016 - 10:45 AM - by meyerweb
The Corvette most recently celebrated a milestone during National Corvette Day last week. If the fact that the vehicle has a day dedicated to how special it is to millions of enthusiasts, this news shouldn’t surprise you.

According to Motor1, the latest Swoop Digital Brand Exposure Index (DBEI) compiled data from the most far-reaching depths of the internet to see which car, and which brand, are the most talked about online. The winner? The Chevrolet Corvette.

The Corvette swept other models regarding what people are reading about, and talking about online, while the Ford brand was named the most talked about brand as a whole. Both Chevrolet and Ford trumped other automakers for share of voice, too.

Keep on chatting, Corvette faithful.

Top 100 Corvette Dealers - And congrats to Mike Furman!

Jul 07, 2016 - 3:57 PM - by meyerweb
I don't think I saw this posted before. Here is a list of the top 100 Corvette Dealers for 2015. Congrats to our Forum Dealers in positions who made the list.

And congratulations to Mike Furman, Corvette Salesman of the Year (East), selling 400 Corvettes himself. Mike was generous, too, letting some of his fellow salespeople have 27 Corvettes.

The Top 100 Corvette Dealers of 2015 - Corvette: Sales, News & Lifestyle

Edit: It has been brought to my attention that the number of 400 for Mike's sales stated in the linked article might not be accurate. I have no ability to verify, so I'm putting this caveat here. He's still the salesman of the year (East), regardless of the number.

Corvette Cheaper than it was 30 years ago

Jul 06, 2016 - 6:50 PM - by meyerweb
The Corvette Is Actually More Affordable Than It Was 30 Years Ago

In constant, inflatio adjusted dollars, the 2016 Corvette is cheaper than the 1986 (and 1996) Corvettes. And considering all the content in today's car, and it's performance, it's a real sports car bargain. If you optioned up the older models to include things that are standard now (PS, PB, A/C, etc.), I suspect they'd be more expensive, too.

Year Price Price in 2016 $$
1956 $2900 $25,594
1966 $4084 $30,376
1976 $7604 $32,406
1986 $27,027 $58,486
1996 $37,225 $57,359
2006 $43,690 $52,509
2016 $55,400 $55,400
