  • 2024 Corvette GT-3 R

    Is there any News about the Corvette GT-3 R GM is Hell to deal with Elon Musk needs to be running GM

  • #2
    No GM is not hell to deal with. Our impatience is what we have to deal with. How much have we learned from Elon in advance of his future models? Sure he trotted out the Cybertruck years go, but what really has been shared about it since. It is how OEM’s do things, i.e., they reveal and tease and ask us to stay tuned. And that is our only choice.

    The Corvette team is right now working on the Z06 to finish it up, developing the GT3-R, and progressing on the E-Ray. You may not like GM’s style but it is not going to change. Sorry. We are just going to have to wait all these things out.
    Z07 coming late this summer: Hypersonic Gray HTC, two tone blue interior, CCB’s, with every piece of visible carbon fiber available including the wheels. Lifetime, annual contributors, and 24 year members of National Corvette Museum. Home is the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

      Thanks but would have been easier to read as a correct sentence.

        If I am interpreting this sentence correctly, I will take a shot...

        The Z06 GT-3.R is slated for competition debut in 2024, meaning that in the months ahead, we can probably expect to start seeing spy shots by the end of this summer, just as we start seeing the Cadillac GTP in camouflage form. These things take time to properly develop, especially given how the international GT racing landscape (with respect to technical regulations) tends to flex, albeit not by much the last few years. As such, while certain things can be engineered at full speed right now, while other items, which could have a significant impact on the overall design, have to wait. Then, there is the whole homologation process, where the design effectively must be frozen, which will not happen until late 2023 (in this case). This said, whenever we see the car for the first time, chances are it will likely already be a 99%-plus solution.

        It's coming, and it will be awesome when it debuts, so be patient!

        GM is far from hell to deal with. If it was, it would not exist for much longer. It is a massive corporation with business units across multiple industries around the world, with products under water all the way to outer space, and literally everything in between; with cars being the most visible. No one person is a single-point solution to what you may perceive as little to no progress on any given project within such a massive business operation. Elon is only involved in a handful of business operations, such as SpaceX, Tesla and recently, Twitter. GM's leadership oversees exponentially more.
