2018 BASH C7 Reveal Info

Apr 26, 2017 - 9:39 AM - by elegant
This is the first of many posts over the next three days sharing what we have learned at the BASH re the 2018 Corvette changes. Officially the BASH starts tomorrow, but look what was found hiding around the back of the Museum, e.g, the Carbon 65 Edition in both a coupe and a convertible.

Sitting in direct sunlight, Mike Furman, Keith Cornett (CorvetteBlogger), Ann and I, while standing next to them, discussed the nuances of the new Ceramic Gray Matrix color. Best collective summary is that it is halfway between Arctic White and GM's current pearlescent white found on 2017 Cadillacs and more. Just a tiny hint of gray to us. AND, it has some metallic to it.

Judge for yourself, e.g. Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic (CMGM).

Ultimate carbon-fiber package for Grand Sport, Z06 salutes 65 years of Corvette!

Chevrolet is commemorating the 65th anniversary of the Corvette with a new Corvette Carbon 65 Edition offered on 2018 Grand Sport 3LT and Z06 3LZ models.

Limited to only 650 numbered vehicles globally, the distinctive Carbon 65 blends visible carbon-fiber exterior elements – notably, a new carbon-fiber rear spoiler and quarter ducts – with a new Ceramic Matrix Gray exterior color and special interior appointments, including a new carbon-fiber-rimmed steering wheel.

“Corvette is one of the most storied names in Chevrolet and sports car history, with a heritage few can match,” said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president Chevrolet Marketing. “The new Carbon 65 Edition honors that legacy, while offering customers another unique, special-edition model that personalizes the ownership experience.”

The Carbon 65 Edition package (order code Z30) will include:

Available on Grand Sport 3LT and Z06 3LZ trims

Official: '17 Grand Sport GM Press Release!

Mar 01, 2016 - 2:50 AM - by elegant
While we knew yesterday that GM was debuting the 2017 Grand Sport, today we know a lot of its details. Going to be a very exciting option for many Corvette fans, especially those who wanted a wide-bodied Corvette, but who have repeatedly said the last couple of years, "don't want nor need 650HP." GM has made their wishes come true by offering a wide-bodied StingRay AND a wide-bodied StingRay in a Z07 option -- retaining the 460 HP, but having all the Z07's aero options, brakes, and tires.

Key Grand Sport components include the following and as bolded in the GM official press release below.

Bright, light blue interior called "Tension Blue" in the "Collector Edition," though other color interiors (and exterior colors) are available in the non Collector 2016 Grand Sports.

Full GM press release as follows:

With Corvette Racing in its DNA, the all-new 2017 Corvette Grand Sport is a pure expression of the car’s motorsports-bred pedigree. It was introduced today at the Geneva International Motor Show.

Like the 2015 Le Mans-winning Corvette C7.R GTE Pro race car, the new Grand Sport combines a lightweight architecture, a track-honed aerodynamics package, Michelin tires and a naturally aspirated
