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.

    Today, Chevrolet media released that cool video lead-in to the 2020 Corvette Stingray on-stage reveal.

    The opening video at the live reveal brings together the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray’s aeronautical roots and new levels of performance, technology and craftsmanship to introduce the first-ever mid-engine Corvette. Did you happen to notice any hidden elements in it?

    The carrier aircraft was basically in the shape of the new C8 emblem, and it was labeled, "CORVETTE-AIRLINE".

        Just wondering, I don’t remember seeing the new Stingray Logo displayed on any of the Reveal cars, will it be somewhere like is on the C7. Although looking at the side view I would be hard put to figure out where.

                Also, the frequency was set to "07.18.19", and the Stingray gets up to 153 mph (as in '53, C1). I hope they release this as a Corvette commercial.

                  (I hope this isn't too off-topic.) Speaking of Corvette commercials, GM doesn't spend a whole lot of money on Corvette marketing (especially on commercials) since Corvette basically sells itself, but here are some of the more popular ones they did for the previous four generations that I'm sure most of you are familiar with. For those of you that aren't, enjoy!

                      Thanks for the picture. We lost power for 3 days due to a bad storm and just got it back yesterday, so I am woefully behind on IMPORTANT info after the reveal. Am in major catch-up mode and appreciate all the videos and answers.

                          I've seen all of those commercials before, but good to see them again.
                          Notice ONE similarity in all of them?





                          Yup, a third pedal.
                          But I'm looking forward to the DCT.
                          2021 HTC on order with 2LT, front lift, msrc, npp, elb with two tone seats, and gray hash marks. September first delivery??
                          Now 22. Thinking adding cf interior and deleting hash marks.
                          Delivery? Who knows. ☹☹

                            That photo never gets old..

                            i thought the reveals anticipation of the vehicle was a tad long but thats ok...over the past few days its been marinating and I can appreciate the corvette teams efforts...to build the connection...

                            that first night though on july 18th the you tubers watching from home offices on their hime computer screens cracked me up with their off the cuff remarks...

                            where they were drinking beers and saying show us the car ...had me roaring...

                            laughter is a good thing in life even if it was slightly derogatory...it was all in good fun...

                            awesome car...

                            i was devating if I was going to wait for the second year of production ...but once I saw and heard about the first year model...all thoughts of waiting went out the window....

                            corvette engineering and design did an amazing job...

                            in twenty years of new corvette delivery ownership i had thought I had quite the oassionate response of desiring the vehicle.

                            my anticipation to immediately own a c8 has certainly eclipsed any prior desire of any vehicle in the past... any corvette generation...

                            this one is the highest level of must have now...

                            maybe the 40 or 50 years of talking about producing a rear mid engine and finally delivering it in the 8 th gen is part of it as well...

                            my first real two seat sports car back in the late 1970s was a rear mid engine sports car and that reach back in time might be part of my high pitched desire...hard to say...

                            mostly its that striking c8 z51 fe4 shown...and discussed,,,



                            cant wait!

                              As far as I know, Chevrolet press media has thus far only posted a highlights video of it. However, you can find the whole reveal on youtube. Here's one:
