  • Post 7.18.19: What Will We See/Learn/Hear?

    To be smart about the post C8 reveal process and what will the days right after bring us, as is often the case, re-living the past is a great clue as to what could well be next.

    As we approach the reveal of the ME, I have been trying to re-create in my mind “what was it like” during the immediate time period after the C7’s 1.13.13 reveal. I found one video which was both a great memory jogger, but also a great prognosticator of what will be occurring — of what we will be seeing on July 19th and shortly afterwards. And what fun it was to see this video again!



    Thanks to the MotorTrend Channel for the video.

    We will see and dissect in the week after, and even the month after, so many interviews of Tadge, Harlan, Kirk, and so many other top members of the Corvette team. In each one, we will gratefully learn a little more about the ME!

    I know of one interview that is going to 98% probability of happening sometime during the reveal evening, and it that almost-certain-event takes place, it would be found here on this forum.

    The adrenaline will be pumping, not just on 7.18, but also on 7.19, 7.20, etc.

    I remember getting up close to a couple of C7s at the Bash in April of 2013.

            My guess is just like the month after 1.13.13, is that before four weeks has elapsed after the C8’s reveal, there will have been 5-10 videos with significant educational information, e.g., every major auto-media site will find a way to interview different members of the Corvette team.

            Then, at Corvettes At Carlisle, I believe CorvetteBlogger would be video capturing what is shared they by the Corvette team at an expected (but not yet confirmed) C8 presentation there, then the end of August at the NCM 25th Anniversary, Jeremy Welborn (aka “jagamajajaran”), will be doing same at the definite C8 presentations by top Corvette team members there. Of course we will have not just videos, but also the GM press release the night of the reveal, and maybe that night or a couple of days afterwards, the www.GMfleetorderguide.com with complete C8 specs.

            Since in my opinion, orders would not go in before early/mid September, all that information is going to both be critical to, and available to those whose orders go in first. GM is aware that there will be learning curve for the C8 for all of us, including their dealers, and they are going to take steps to bring all up to speed as soon as possible. They have as much invested in our being informed purchasers as we customers want to be knowledgeable. GM created about ten, one-minute educational videos on the C7 for that purpose; expecting similarly for those videos to again be available to us.

            Meanwhile, about the time that the C8’s start to arrive in customer hands, we will also have excellent professionally done videos, such as this one by Mike Furman.



            And hundreds of YouTube videos will also eventually appear on every aspect of the car’s operation.

              Interior Design Video: Thanks to Jake Drennon, we have this 2013 C7 interior design video, described as

              “C7 INTERIOR OVERVIEW BY RYAN VAUGHAN & LUCY LAHOOD, C7 INTERIOR DESIGNERS, AT THE OFFICIAL C5/C6 REGISTRY BASH AT THE NCM ON APRIL 27, 2013. RYAN & LUCY PRESENT A 60 MINUTE OVERVIEW OF THE C7 INTERIOR DESIGN ALONG WITH INSIGHT AS TO HOW THIS NEW C7 INTERIOR CAME ABOUT.”

              We should similarly see one about how the C8’s design was created and what its elements are.

                    Thanks John for the Video. Yes what a nice trip back to 2013. I feel that the C8 reveal is going to be a worldwide watch event. It is going to be a hit in Europe, if GM pulls this off. Even with the crazy duty they have to pay on American cars.

                      I have yet to experience a GM video that has even adequate sound in it. Why can't they get it right? One does not record from the speakers in the auditorium, rather one records from the mic(s) that the speaker is wearing, thereby rendering a crisp and clear sound to the video with no reverberation or room noise. Someone has got to teach these MIT and Cal Tech engineers how to make a video. I cannot watch the ones they are putting out now.
