On this episode of CORVETTE TODAY, you get to meet the Corvette Plant Manager for the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, Kai Spande!
Your host, Steve Garrett, introduces you to Kai as he traces his career with GM.

You'll get insights on the plant expansion and how they made that all happen...giving the new C8 Corvette a true state-of-the-art build facility. Kai also tells you about the Corvettes he has owned and the funny story of how he loved Corvettes, but never thought he'd get to work for it during his tenure at GM. Get to personally know Corvette Plant Manager, Kai Spande, on this episode of CORVETTE TODAY!

      Time to buy a plastic bubble and drive something else. ME Vette perhaps ? Hopefully you haven't put too many miles on it.

        Plastic bubble? Not hardly, not seeing that, rather have the car to daily drive or alternate with the A8 with what should be a little more like 825hp (700 rwhp) on pump gas this car I believe has the improved fuel pump.
        Will find out soon what it makes.

          Was out driving the A8 today with the 2300 Heartbeat and ARH 2 inch headers with the ZR1 TB modified lengthened Halltech intake. Tuned and dyno'd on a Mustang dyno made 650/650 RWHP/RWTQ which is 800/800 hp/TQ at the engine weighs about 3450 with a half tank of fuel. DSC shock controller as well. Pump gas no meth no issues. Runs like stock but cooler temps and more boost pulls much much harder than stock.
          I love the M7 but I love A8 as well. The A8 is super quick off the line runs super cool with the MAGGY 2300. Super fun to drive around looking for some track rubber to go soon right now the same set up runs 9's in the 140 range superfast. C8 for me but when the HP/Z06 model is released.

            Thanks John! GM says they made 2353 stopping the week of January 22nd, this car was made on Thursday January 25th and is 2391. 38 cars past what GM claims to have made. Could the last 2018 made as well for sure one of the last. Plus it really is a beautiful example complete new factory build. Only 99 made in Silver in 2018

                Keith Cornett/CorvetteBlogger and I have often found number of produced differences. Perhaps in some cases GM is counting on cars made in North America, in others including foreign sales, build but unsaleable units, or some other factor.

                    I think it was 25.00 to have them research the vin number. My question was also does this car have the new fuel pump the 2019's enjoy and the answer was that it likely does.
                    It does not have the off idle lag or any of the issues of my 2015 M7 just superior a car in many ways.
                    including the ride.

                        10-4 on that Silver, my other choice is the Watkins gray, Silver shades for Corvette are nice but only 1 Watkins Gm screwed up changing the shade to color that never match the sales of Watkins gray.
