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!

    As to pricing, since with only item A for the C7 being $995, I am guessing $1,195 (but like to guess high and hopefully be nicely surprised later).

          Good question. One we should ask of our Steven Bell, the man with the gorgeous C7 “Carbon Fiber Edition,” who did not stop with factory visible CF, but has added so many beautiful pieces since. Here’s his thread to help you and perhaps others decide.

            As nice as it looks, at those sorts of prices I'll probably save my money for other goodies. I wonder how much the GT2 seats are going to cost with their bit of CF. I hope less than the competition seats on the C7.

              If there ever is a shortage of carbon fiber just head over to Mr. Bell's garage. That is an awesome set up. I really like the rear defuser on his car.

                ^^^^ Thank you sir...you are too kind! In my opinion, you can NEVER have too much Carbon Fiber. These C8 pieces look outstanding. It's difficult to guesstimate a price. The $1,195 could be it....maybe more. I guess we'll find out on August 15th.

                        It's odd looking to have the mode selector surround available in CF but the drive select right next to it is not. I am a big fan of uniformity. I am sure the aftermarket will address that.

                              Its stunningly beautiful but what does it cost? A thousand dollars?

                              your son may think like many of us young in’s ... “hey its beautiful but for a grand Ill pass”

                              thats another aspect of corvette that is so cool. We each get to choose...
