    After 7.18.19 Where Will We See The ME?

    The reveal as we all thankfully know, will be Thursday, July 18th. Of course, we do not yet know where.

    After that, GM will take the ME show cars (as opposed to the still camo’d test versions), to public places to be seen by many.

    Where do you think we will see the 2020 Corvette ME between July 18th and the end of this year?

    There is a Corvette club in the Detroit area that has a show at the GM Tech Center. That is where I saw and sat in my first C6 in August of 2004.

    I would think that they would be at Carlisle.

      I would be willing to have the C8 at my shop for public viewing. Of course, I would provide corporate hospitality tents with food and drink. Might even hire a band. It’s going to be a great event,

        I'll bet that Chevrolet will have the ME ZORA shown at the Monterey Classic Car Week which starts on August 11th and ending August 18th. The best locations during that week would be Friday the 16th at the Quail Event, and the Monterey Historics Race at Laguna Seca on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. It would then culminate at the big show Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance Sunday on the Concept Car Lawn. This will be very important for the whole Corvette team to be there on the last four days of the week. It is the largest single display of the worlds top mid engine car manufacturers in America if not the world. Every mid engine car company is there with huge displays that dwarf the usual auto show displays of Detroit, LA, NY, and Chicago. It would be epic for Mary Barra, Mark Reuss, Tadge Juechter, and company to show the ZORA to the worlds best mid engine sportscar competitors. Porsche will be shaking in their boots when they see the potential of this car.

            Hopefully lotsa public roads. They gonna drive them between engagements? Guess the camo will be off during those "ferry" trips.

              Hopefully everywhere and driven by real people.

              Usually the only question about the Reveal is Where. The rest is just lights and camera and a talk about the product.

              For most of us, lucky folk, the reveals will happen right here on the Midenginecorvetteforum or on Google or uTube. All we will want is great camera angles and complete specs. The party will be right here.

              1. Cold Reveal: On a stage . Stationary vehicles. Video of moving C8 vehicles. Lighting. Artificial Controlled Setting. Honored guest. Say nice things. Pretty Car.

              2. Hot Reveal: On a track. and Road format. Moving C8 vehicles. Natural and testing setting. Professional drivers and lay drives driving the vehicles and commenting.

              If Corvette goes for a Hot Reveal, then it will be a first. It will set the standard for all. It will be an image maker.

              We have been focused on Where because that is what we expect and all the manufacturers are ever willing to provide.
              .
              The What and How should be the focus. "2. Hot Reveal:" Reveals.

              Where? Where the people are.

              Do it at Racer 86's race track and let the forum members drive it.

              Are you listening GM?

                Livestream for all is what I want, so that whether one is invited to the reveal or not, there are there as it is happening on their computers, TVs or whatever they have that gets them to the internet.

                  There will be cars without camo on the roads sometime after the reveal, but not the show cars. No OEM drives their show cars on the public roads.

                      This seems fairly obvious! After the reveal occurs, it is incumbent upon GM to sell these cars! That would suggest as many venues as makes sense. So on to Carlisle the following week where 30,000 - 40,000 Corvette faithful will drool over it! Then perhaps the 25th anniversary of the Corvette Museum where more hords of Corvette faithful will be! Then Pebble Beach for the international crowd. Pebble Beach is perhaps as noteworthy as any and every major auto show for showing a new sports car, particularly a mid engine car! That is just about the mainstay of that show's participants! They would want to be at the Quail and certainly at Sunday's Concourse. Porsche's teeth will be chattering when the get a look at this! They will wet their pants.

                      The cars will be numerous in number and not driven between events. A major overland showcase of semis and escorts would be incredible and very appropriate! Get ready for the real show when the marketing begins.

                        Here’s a picture I took of the actual transporters hired by GM to bring the two ZR1’s and other new Corvettes to ZR1’s LA reveal on November 28, 2017. They always use tractor trailers to transport their new show Corvettes.

                        The exception to this is for the manufacturing validation build cars driven by the top Corvette team members as the last stage of the testing process, where they drive them on public streets to continue their day to day testing process.

                        There's one more phase, the manufacturing validation build phase, which is done after the car is shown to the public. MVB vehicles are driven by GM employees and to test for assembly line build quality. They can be sold to the general public and sometimes they have options packages in combinations that are not offered on production vehicles.
                        You can bet that Tadge, Harlan, Phil, Kirk and Kai and many other Corvette team top members can not get to get theirs, hopefully for them just a day or a few after July 18th’s reveal. They then will drive and drive and drive them.

                          Chevrolet has a tent at Funfest in Effingham Il the end of September which could possibly have one on display.

                            I think you are right that there will be one there. It is a very popular show.
                            Looking forward to our ME arriving.

                              Lots of great ideas already posted ... agree with Skank and JB for my vote. I saw the C7R and the C7 roadster at Laguna Seca back in Aug of 2013. The other Monterey shows are all possible especially on the putting green at Pebble on Sunday. Carlisle is an easy run for me, my buds are already planning the trip. Online reveal on 18 July will be the best I can do that day.
