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!

  • C8 Production Status Event Codes

    While this is a bit premature, it was very entertaining and fun to watch my C7 go thru the various production stages at BG when the car was being built. I wonder if the codes will change for the C8. I also hope we will be able to track our C8 orders on-line.

          Better list John. Its got my 4D00 QC hold! I tried to find out exactly what they did with mine. It was chosen randomly. Track time, tons of measurements and inspection. What they learn goes back to the assembly line.

            GM’s computer selects two cars every day after the day’s assembly is completed, e.g., during regular production times. However, as we talked earlier, in the beginning of a new gen or a new model, many more are chosen for the GCA (global customer audit) process.

            The C8 production rate is expected to be at the same of 11.6 units per hour as it has been since the fall, 2017 Plant shutdown.
