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!

  • Singular C8 ITW Sighting/Picture

    Thanks to Corvette_Nut, we have a Cedar City, UT sighting. Darn, I was there within the last month, but it wasn’t to be found then. Obviously, one of the earlier camo’d mules, so we will not see anything new, but at least we know they are continue to do more testing, that there more items on
    the testing and development check list still needing to be finalized.

        Curious...MORE camouflage? Chevy must be getting nervous about Chazcron's and fvs' renders!

          I think the heavy camo must, or may, be covering up Z06 bodywork.

            Or it is any early C8 Julie, built/camo’d before last September’s first stage, thick black outer cover removal process. In most of those cases, as only one building in MI does 100% of GM disguising and subsequent disguise removal, they kept testing the car because its thick camo was not interfering with that car’s particular testing mission(s).

              Hmmm, I'm trying to figure out what's going on at lower rear of the mule. It almost looks like there's something hanging below the rear fascia / diffuser / exhaust pipes. That weirdly shaped black piece.

              Maybe they're testing a tow hitch?

                We saw a similar picture of that component in the pictures taken at Milford Proving Grounds about two weeks ago. Many think it is a temporary tailpipe adapter to measure emissions.

                  I thought about that, but if I recall correctly, that temporary pipe was positioned as an extension of the regular exhaust outlet. This thing seems to be placed significantly lower.

                  Maybe he just ran over a black garbage bag and it's being blown out the back.

                      We don't even know if the Z06 denomination will prevail. Share if you know otherwise

                        No, I'm using Z06 as shorthand for the high performance version that is sure to follow. Whether it's a Z06, or a Zora, or a Manta Ray, probably no one outside GM knows. Maybe the decision hasn't even been made yet. GM sure is fond of Znn names, though.
