Electric StingRay Ahead?

Dec 21, 2015 - 1:42 PM - by elegant
An electric Corvette? Maybe even a C9? Well not totally electric, but perhaps an electric motor(s) assisting a smaller V8.

General Motors Files Trademark Applications For ‘Corvette E-Ray’, ‘E-Ray’!!!

BY CHRIS ECCLESTONE– DEC 21, 2015

General Motors has filed two applications to register “Corvette E-Ray” and “E-Ray” as trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The automaker’s December 16th, 2015 applications specify that the marks will be used to name goods and services in the category of “motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles”.

General Motors Corvette E-Ray & E-Ray Trademark Summary
Trademark Serial Number Filing Date
Corvette E-Ray 86850510 December 16, 2015
E-Ray 86850500 December 16, 2015
The GM Authority Take

If nothing else, these applications appear to be indicators that the Corvette will get an electric variant. The possibility is interesting, but might come off as disconcerting to those Corvette enthusiasts who can’t see anything except for a monstrous V8 powering a Corvette.

Stay tuned to GM Authority as we follow this story, as well as for other GM news.

2018 Corvettes=12 Colors!

Dec 16, 2015 - 3:59 PM - by elegant
Corvette's paint pallet will expand to 12 colors for the 2018 model year -- maybe even during the end of the 2017 model year.

Let the countdown begin.

The first of some 11,000 pieces of steel was put into place Monday as construction of a technologically advanced paint shop at the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green began in earnest.

When all is said and done in early 2017 and the first car is expected to be painted in April that year, Corvette customers (perhaps mid-engine customers, too, we can hope) will begin seeing a much higher-quality paint job and an expanded color palette.

That first beam, which was 55 feet long and weighed three tons, is part of the northeast corner of the new paint shop, which will be 450,000 square feet – half the size of the current facility.

First Beam Set for the New Corvette Paint Shop at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant

“It’s a landmark day to see this happen,” Plant Manager Kai Spande said.

According to Spande, the expansion “is for the customers,” noting that because the plant is painting carbon fiber and specialized plastics, all off of the body, special processes used only in Bowling Green will be implemented.

“From an operational standpoint, we will have more automation, but that will be balanced out with increased complexity,” Spande said, “so it doesn’t make our jobs easier, but it will make a better product for our customers.”

Chuck Valentini, body systems manager, said the new shop will be able “to do some colors that we can’t do today while also raising the quality level up,” thanks to additional

GM Invests $44M In Corvette Plant

Dec 09, 2015 - 9:24 AM - by elegant
GM continues to invest significant capital in the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, this time for the enhancement of engine build operations in the Performance Build Center (where you can build your own Z06, LT4 motor).

The expansion of the Performance Build Center is fueled by the success of the Corvette Z06, which currently accounts for nearly a third of all Corvettes produced at Bowling Green Assembly.

The Performance Build Center also offers a one-of-a-kind experience for customers – the Build Your Own Engine program. This program allows customers to assemble the 650-hp supercharged LT4 engine for their cars. The $5,000 option package includes a full day with a Performance Build Center engine assembly technician who instructs and oversees the build, a personalized engine plaque identifying the customer and professional photography.

“Coupled with the investment, for $439 million for a new paint shop and facility upgrades announced in May, GM has committed $483 million to Bowling Green this year alone,” said plant manager Kai Spande. “These significant investments indicate the company’s confidence in Bowling Green, the Performance Build Center and our skilled workforce.”

Construction took place in 2013 and early 2014, with engine production beginning in the second quarter of 2014. The Performance Build Center produces the 2016 LT4 6.2L V-8 for the Chevrolet Corvette Z06.

GM has added 316 new jobs and invested a total of $617.5 million over the last four years at Bowling

National Corvette Museum Delivery of your brand new Corvette! How does it get better than that?

Mike Basile proposes to girlfriend of 8 years Stacy Sulima.

Mike Basile and girlfriend of eight years Stacy Sulima had been planning a visit to the National Corvette Museum for a few weeks, primarily to take delivery of Mike’s new 2016 Z06 through the R8C Museum Delivery Program. But what Stacy didn’t know was that Mike was also planning to ‘pop the question’ during the visit.

“When I figured out when the delivery date was going to be then I made the decision that it would be the time,” Mike said.

Stacy explained that they had been living together for a few years and an engagement was inevitable. “We knew it would eventually happen. It was just a matter of when is the right time.”

Poised on the Museum’s Corvette Boulevard, delivery host Jonathon Tabor tells Mike that his penalty time is up. After which, Mike drops to one knee and proposes to Stacy.

The running joke between Mike and Stacy was that they were in ‘penalty time.’ “We had been dating for seven years and Stacy was like, ‘now I’m eligible’ but I told her no, it’s like soccer. You don’t know when penalty time is going to end.”

Stacy laughed. “Apparently penalty time is one year and three days!”

After teasing Mike about waiting so long to finally propose he joked that “you gotta weed out the bad ones!”

Mike and Stacy live just outside of Philadelphia and are members of the Skyline Drive Corvette Club. Mike also owns a 2003 Corvette with 289,000
