Corvette Today Podcast With Kai Spande BGA Manager

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. Kai talks about how the Bowling Green Assembly Plant transitioned from the front engine, C7 Corvette, to the mid-engine C8 Corvette. 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!

    Exactly, you'll be living with the car for several years so might as well make sure its exactly what you want. Way, way back when C8 orders were first being submitted I had a chance to move up the line and get a car earlier, but Torch Red was not available right then. So sadly I had to pass on it just so I could get my preferred color later. No regrets!

    BTW, if Red Mist had been available back then, I would have jumped at it instead of Torch Red. Such a great color.

    Yay, another Canuck Corvette joining the crew! Delivery to Canada can vary a lot depending on if it's shipped by truck or rail. The latter is much longer. I've heard that some rail shipments in the States are now going by truck but not sure if GM has made any changes for Canada. Generally speaking C8's destined for Southern Ontario go by truck, ones for Winnipeg or Ottawa (me) or further go by rail. I'm not sure exactly where the cut-off line is in Southern Ontario. St. Catherines definitely gets theirs by truck but I'm not sure about Toronto. We do have a couple of forum members who live in the GTA so hopefully they'll chime in.


    Congrats to both of you and good luck!

      I live in Waterloo which is nearer to St. Catherines, so hopefully delivery is by truck and I’ll get it quicker.

      How do you check the order status? A few members have mentioned going to a GM website. What is the process?

        Goto chevrolet.com and in the lower right you see a chat button that looks like a cartoon speak bubble. Click on that, then click on order status for corvette. Give them your order number and they will give you the status.
        3000 - 3/1/2021. 3400 - 5/24/2021. Built 6/14/21. Still awaiting delivery.

        Front Lift. Spectra Gray Trident Wheels w/Edge Red Calipers. Chrome Exterior Badge Package. Midnight Silver with CF accent fender hash marks.

          BuyPeaksSellDips...I too am a February Red Mist HTC allocation sitting at 3000 for the past 6 weeks. I expect to roll to 3300 status the week of 4/12. According to the Museum folks my TPW is sitting at 5/3. This is always subject to change based on production delays. If you are a museum delivery, or getting the photo album, check the museum website and contact either Shane or Lori and they can look in their system and see when your TPW has been assigned. They can see things the Corvette Concierge cannot. Good Luck and hope you build occurs soon.
          Initial order placed with Kerbeck on 9/14/20
          Allocation at status 2000 on 2/12/21

              James Wisecarver Thanks for this info. I am not doing museum delivery or photo album so I guess I can't call shane 😕😕. However, it looks like you are exactly 2 weeks ahead of me. My 3000 status started on 3/1, and since we are both Red Mist HTC, this we SHOULD stay 2 weeks apart or so. If you don't mind, if you get a major update, do you mind PM'ing me or posted them? Thanks. OMG, every time I get on this web site I get more excited. I got to stay off it.. LOL... I need to go to youtube and watch Red Mist vids to calm my cravings.. LOL...

                Well I have checked on the GM.ca website twice over the last three weeks and they see my order but tell me it isn’t even scheduled yet. However... total shock today... the dealer texted me and said my Corvette is built! Wow what a great surprise!! They told me their last Corvette was completed March 30 and they received it April 14. So I’m hopeful I’ll have it before June. AWESOME!!!!!!!

                  If you dealer happens to be Mike Furman/Criswell, I am pretty certain he can give you a really good idea of what the timeline looks like
