    Default 2010 MY: Return of the Grand Sport

    Since the cat was let out of the bag on another forum, I might as well not be the last:

    Chevrolet will offer the 2010 in 6 models - yes 6:

    1YY07 Corvette Coupe
    1YY67 Corvette Convertible
    1YY87 Corvette Z06
    1YY87 Corvette ZR1
    1YG07 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe
    1YG67 Corvette Grand Sport Convertible

    To the best of my knowledge, we will not see a return of the skunk-like paint job and don't expect to see any big power gains. I believe it will contain bits and pieces from the ZR1.

    Think of the 2010 Grand Sport as a clone of the GT1 Competition model that was just unveiled. Essentially; just more marketing stuff.

    Which "bits & pieces?"

    I'd be all over the CC brakes!

    I know the rumor was thrown out there a coupe years ago, that GM might break the Corvette out into its own marque. When the ZR1 was added to the line-up, I started to wonder if there might be some truth to the rumor. Now we've got the GS coupe and convertible added to the line up...

    Any news on how much the GS's will cost? I'm guessing they'll slot squarely in the middle of the 25k gap between the base coupe and the Z06.

    If it is more marketing than substance, it's understandable.

    With something like 8000 unsold cars from 07, 08 and 09 in inventory, GM has a big problem in moving metal as far as the Corvette goes.

    I think what they need is the "Tim Geithner Signature" Edition Corvette. It comes with a special feature in the sales contract that says if you get behind in your payments the government will bail you out.

    No, the "Tim Giethner Signature Edition" Corvette will allow you to skip out on paying the sales tax, and thus put you in line for a Cabinet position.

    Default Skunks Rule!!!

    My guess is that it will be pathetic, since the team that put together the '96 Grand Sport, led by the legendary John Heinricy, put their hearts and souls into creating something truly special to mark the end of the C-4 run, instead of making it an afterthought, which the 2010 0ne-of-six options is likely to be. How sad!!! : ( : ( : (

    thats a great way for GM to go...

    If its not too expensive...it will be one popular option!

    I would have bought that on my new corvette and for the guys with an older corvette...I am sure they will line up for this new wide body Grand Sport option..

    If I remember correctly the guys were paying close to 10 grand to convert there c6 coupes and verts to a wide body kit (with wheels etc)


    At a 5 grand option package...its a slam dunk for success...
