2018 Corvette Specs Announced

General Motors has released the 2018 Corvette specs, product information and ordering guide - and while neither a rumored ZR1 or "Zora" mid-engine were listed in the materials, we were excited to see the 'Carbon 65' special edition, marking the marque's milestone anniversary.


The new Ceramic Matrix Gray offered on the Carbon 65 replaces Sterling Blue for exterior colors for 2018. While the new options do not present drastic changes to the car, they are carefully cultivated offerings which allow buyers to truly build their dream car.


You can check out the complete details on our website - or better yet, hear about the changes AND SEE them for yourselves at the Michelin NCM Bash, just two weeks away! Pre-registration closes Monday.



























Gathering Registration Open

The National Corvette Museum is co-hosting the C4 Gathering along with the ZR-1 Net Registry and the Grand Sport Registry, and this year's festivities are slated for May 18-20. Open to all those interested in the 4th Generation Corvette, these two organizations and the NCM are working to bring participants activities, seminars, special guided Plant and Museum tours, MSP track day with go-karting and information specific to their interest in this generation of Corvette.


NCM Member Registration is $20pp and Non-Member Registration is $30pp. All pre-registered participants will receive a personalized commemorative credential, lanyard and event pin. Onsite Registration: NCM Member $30pp and Non-Member Registration is $40pp. All onsite registrants will receive a hardcard credential and lanyard.

Ed Welburn to be Inducted in Automotive Hall of Fame

Ed Welburn, former Vice President of General Motors Global Design, has been named a 2017 inductee into the Automotive Hall of Fame. When appointed to his position in 2003, he became the first African American to lead a major automotive design house and only the sixth person to lead GM Design in the company’s 100-year history. He managed 1600 creative designers and sculptors who staff GM’s 11 Global Design studios. Welburn retired last July after 44 years with General Motors.



The Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn, MI has been celebrating outstanding automotive achievement since 1939. There are four distinct awards. Induction into the Automotive Hall of Fame is reserved for those who have made a significant impact on the automobile. This is the single greatest honor in the automotive business. Inductee contributions are chronicled among the great men and women who have had a positive influence on the industry.
