Engine Build Experience in Full Swing according to NCM

Feb 26, 2015 - 3:58 PM - by jsvette
From today's (26 Feb 2015) NCM enews:

Corvette Z06 buyers now have the option to assembly their 650-hp supercharged LT4 engine at the new Performance Build Center inside the Bowling Green Assembly Plant.

The Engine Build Experience is selected with order code PBC and is offered on all Z06 trim levels.

The Museum handles the concierge services for Engine Build customers and coordinates many aspects of the program. We welcomed our first Engine Build customer, Henry Younger of Gurley, AL, on February 11. "Being there at the Plant makes this option much more attractive now," said Younger. "This is my second build and it was fantastic just as my first was. The LT4 is so much different than the LS7 I built first - incredible is the only way to say it, I guess, along with a big WOW, what an engine."
The $5,000 option comes with a full day with a Performance Build Center engine assembly technician who instructs and oversees the build; a personalized engine plaque identifying the owner/builder and the date of the engine build; professional photography of the experience; piston trophy commemorating the experience and a build your own engine polo.

StingRay "Art Car"

Feb 20, 2015 - 1:02 PM - by elegant
While we normally do not put videos in our Corvette News section, as "art cars" have become famous enough to have major car brands run them at the 24 Hours of LeMans, here's the end-process picture, and/or watch the fast-motion, one minute video to see it painted.

Even in an Awful Month, Corvette Pummels Porsche Car Sales

The Chevrolet Corvette posted its worst sales month since the new C7 Stingray was introduced in October 2013, but even in a record-low month – the Corvette still comfortably outsold the next closest premium performance car sold in America, beating the Porsche 911 by a rate of almost 2-to-1. Patrick Rall reports for TorqueNews.com

First, since there has been some question from readers as to why I compare the sales figures for the Chevrolet Corvette to those of the Porsche brand cars, we should all keep in mind that the closest competitor in terms of performance and amenities in the US market is the Porsche 911. However, the 911 is more expensive than the Chevy, leaving the Porsche Boxster/Cayman duo to be the more closely related of the Porsche cars to the Corvette. In any case, behind the Corvette, the next bestselling premium sports car in the US is the Porsche 911 and for that reason, I like to look at how well the Corvette is selling relative to the rest of the closest competition.

Really, there is no good comparison vehicle in the US market for the Chevrolet Corvette, which only goes to show why the C7 is selling so well and why the Corvette is so very good in every way.

Corvette Leads through Sales Slump
Winter has hit the United States very hard over the past few weeks, with many parts of the country getting more snow than at any other point this year. That influx of snow leads to decreased interest in performance cars for many buyers in areas that see frigid temperatures, so it doesn’t come as a big surprise that Corvette sales were down last month. It does come as a bit of a surprise that the Corvette posted the worst monthly sales figures since the C7 first went on sale, but with 2,127 new models sold in January, the legendary Chevy was still the bestselling premium sports car in the US. Also, the Corvette was the 4th bestselling sporty car overall, behind only the three American muscle cars.

Feb 03, 2015 - 1:14 PM - by elegant

Hopefully, hopefully some will start to ship tomorrow, though all need to remember that the contract that Jack Cooper Transport has with the Plant, is that the transporter has up to 10 days to remove cars from the property that have been released to them. Hopefully, Jack Cooper has been given a heads up, and that they have a whole fleet of transporters ready to take the A8 Z06's away tomorrow.

No additonal information on either invoices, nor on any potential change in gas guzzler tax status available at this time.

It is being reported that all 2015 Corvette coupes, Stingray and Z06, now have a $1,000 base price increase. Convertibles are not included in the price increase. Existing inventory and orders that have already been placed should be price protected unless the individual dealership wants to make an extra $1,000 based on the new pricing.

Q: You like to drive your creations?

A: Oh, yeah. I'm still looking for keys where I can get them. Now that I'm on the Corvette team I used Corvettes for everything from track day to daily driver to going to the grocery store. My wife had a horse and we'd go to the feed store and buy 300 pounds of feed. The guy would come out with the handcart stacked up to here and he'd say: "Where's your pickup?" I'd say, "No, it's the Corvette over there." And I'd open up the hatch and say: "That's where it's going."

Q: You have mechanical and aerospace engineering degrees and a Stanford MBA. Why cars?

A: Since I was a kid I was interested in inventing things I could interact with mechanically. I was building go-karts and bicycles with suspensions. I didn't like remote control. I always wanted to be in the middle of it. There is no greater career path for someone interested in that than the auto industry. Maybe I could have invented jet engines, but I'm not going to be flying F16s around.

Q: The base Corvette C7 Stingray was built with racing in mind wasn't it?

A: Stiffness improvement and aluminum is the best way to do that. So this time we elected to do a ground-up build using technologies that weren't even available the last time around. Things like hollow
