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!

    After seeing the Rick ***** video of the red Z51 at BGA, I think I might have to choose that color, with this interior:

    2LT, GT1 seats in Adrenaline Red

    Really like the two tone better than the all red that's standard with the GT2 seats. But if the cost is reasonable, I'd opt for GT2 with suede inserts (also two tone).

        We have a Torch Z06 with Adrenaline interior with the seats all red leather. It’s 2LZ and there is enough black in the interior to break up the color. Would do the same again.
        There is a madness to my method!

          Am I understanding correctly, it seems that 2LT in Adrenaline Red is a two tone seat by default? The
          seat backs are black while the rest of the seat is red?

          Natural and Sky Cool Gray in 2LT are a solid colored seat. I’m basing this on the Chevrolet visualizer tool. I even selected two tone seats on the visualizer and the pattern changed from shown above to a different two tone pattern.

          That would be very interesting if one interior color was two tone by default.

            Yup, and what gets even weirder is that this GT1 model seat in an 1LT interior is all red. Same seat, but no black insert on the seat back.

            I wonder if the two-tone GT1 seat in 2LT trim is just a glitch in the Visualizer.

                  Could be, but they're different than the two-tone seats you get if you select the GT2 seats.

                        John, did you look behind the seats to see if there is any storage when you were at the reveal. May have missed the info somewhere so sorry if it’s been discussed.

                          I'm wondering this also and did not take the time to look behind the seats at the reveal. Chevy has indicated that these seats have another inch of travel and can recline more than our C7 seats do, so will need to look. We will have a car on August 19th at my local dealer so will look then.

                            There is no “storage” behind the rear seat, that is unless you are short legged and choose to put something squish-able behind your seat. Yes, they do have another inch of seat travel. I tried moving the seat back at the reveal and it keep going and going, until at the end, with my foot canted forward at max, only my toes could even touch the brake pedal.

ID:	51620 That's what I thought John, but thank you for confirming. The attached picture shows there is no storage space back of the seats.
