  • Whoops: ME Appeared, Then Disappeared On Katech’s Web Site (At Least A Rendering)

    Lovers of how the C5.R’s and C6.R’s became a huge force in sports car racing, remember how much Katech was a major factor in those exciting developments, not the least of which was their great motors!

    Interesting little “footnote in history” happened on Katech’s web site two years ago. It was this post/image.

    And just as quickly as it went up, it totally disappeared. Most guess that GM corporate, seeing or hearing about it, whispered into Katech’s ear, “you do remember that we do not acknowledge nor discuss potential future products.”

    As to where that rendering came from, that too is a separate and very interesting story. Thanks to CorvetteBlogger, we have learned the answer to that also. That will be posted in the next day in a separate thread (though linked below).
