Production Starts 11/14: CS CE

Oct 21, 2016 - 9:57 AM - by elegant
Thanks to Mike Furman at Criswell Chevrolet, we have learned that the first of the special edition Grand Sports, the Collector Edtion, starts production on November 14, 2016. This is consistent with GM's original schedule, which called for a start right around then, with completion in the late winter.

Thank you Mike!

1220 HP, sub 9 second quarter mile C7 on stock components

Oct 17, 2016 - 4:43 PM - by meyerweb
The C7 has some pretty stout components.

...the short block, the trans, and the rear end have never been out of the car. The rear upper and lower control arms have been modified but other than that, it has the factory shocks, axles, everything.

"We call it a racecar but it is every bit a street car too,” Miller said. “After we got it back from the track, I drove it Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, putting at least 400 miles on the car and it did it no problem

An Englishman's view of the C7 GS

Oct 16, 2016 - 11:08 AM - by meyerweb
Writing about a Corvette for a British audience is a bit like trying to pen a review of the Lunar Rover. Both are strange, esoteric machines. Ones that - although we're aware of their existence - have almost no chance of crossing our paths.

More new photos of the ZR-1 / Z06x prototype during testing

Oct 03, 2016 - 8:46 PM - by meyerweb
Autoguide has a bunch of new pics. Follow the link to see them all, but this one shows me something I don't think we've noticed before. The rocker panels also have camo on them, which implies new / different side skirts on this model.

Although it’s still heavily camouflaged, there’s plenty of evidence that the new Corvette ZR1 will feature aggressive styling bumper-to-bumper. Up front, massive air intakes and vents are lightly covered so that the brakes and engine can be kept cool and there’s hints that the ZR1 will use carbon fiber body panels. This particular prototype is missing the massive rear spoiler that has been spotted previously, but there are still two posts on the trunk, showing that the wing will likely still be used.

The camouflage up front is also concealing what appears to be a prominent front lip spoiler, and while it’s difficult to see all the details, expect serious aerodynamic bits on the ZR1 when it debuts sometime next year.

Power should come from a supercharged V8 engine offering over 700 horsepower, paired to a manual transmission. It seems unlikely that the 10-speed automatic transmission from the Z06 will be offered on the ZR1.
What 10 speed auto from the Z06? I guess they meant 8 speed.

Corvette Customer Deliveries

Oct 03, 2016 - 9:47 AM - by elegant
We hear from several sources that Corvettes are not selling, piling up at dealers, especially unsold 2016's.

Today's GM data on actual Corvette delivered to customers does show that for the first ten months of this year, that deliveries to customers are down 13.9% for the first nine months of this year compared to last year (down from 26,398 units for 2015 to 22,719 for the comparable period Jan. 1 through Sept. 30th of this year).

Customer deliveries for last September were 2,572, however up this September by 10.0% to 2,839 units -- though with incentives.

Bowling Green Assembly continues to be on overtime, so, so far, GM is keeping the pedal to the metal on production.

How about dealer stock of 2016 Corvettes? As posted by a member two weeks ago, he was surprised in his visit to a dealership that all of that large dealership's 2016 inventory was now gone. Another larger dealer told me that while he still has a fair amount of 2016's, that inventory level is manageable and selling all the time, down to less than 25% of his typically stocked units. That dealership was not concerned about 2016's languishing -- though as we have seen, discounts of up to 20% and GM incentives are sometimes what is taking to move the 2016's. One local smallish Corvette dealership that I visited does have three unsold 2016's and is concerned about little Corvette traffic other than for Grand Sports and for the 2017 cooling-improved Z06's.

The special edition, 850 unit Grand Sport Collector Edition is almost totally out, with some dealerships already having waiting lists for that specific modelas long as their "sold allocations," with all of one dealership's significant number of the GS CE's going for full list. Would not surprise me if there are exceptions to these special models going at full sticker. And there are still some GS CE's still available for purchase for the next month or so -- but those who love that model need to ink the deal soon.

Production of GS's was recently at around 100 units per day, though starting with... [Read More]
