C8B

Here’s Some Details from Hagerty

Chevrolet has confirmed the C8 will be available in 12 different colors, as revealed by a shipment of “keepsake coins.” Rumor is that the C8 color palette includes a royal blue reminiscent of the 1990 Corvette CERV III concept.

As revealed in a leaked shot of the C8’s rear end, the C7’s round-tipped center quad exhaust migrates to two sets of square dual tips positioned at each corner of the rear bumper. The logo adorning the hood of this eighth-gen Corvette will continue its upward journey from the days of the C4’s horizontal flag arrangement, squeezing itself into an increasingly narrow angle. Walking around the back of the new ’Vette, you’ll be able to peer into the rear hatch and—for the first time—glimpse the small-block V-8. Of course, that controversial placement means less space behind the driver’s seat than in every previous Corvette. So stroll to the front (or to the rear) and pop open one of the two trunks represented on this C8 keyfob.

fob

For the base car, the ’Vette’s small-block V-8 ain’t goin’ nowhere. Later on, though, higher-output iterations of the C8 may utilize twin turbos and electric motors to deliver the first-ever hybrid Corvette. We expect the higher-tier hybrid offerings to bristle with around 1000 hp, with the base naturally-aspirated LT2 rated at roughly 600 hp while displacing the same 6.2 liters as the current LT1 in the C7.

Along with a space-saving dry-sump configuration for the engine, the C8’s will employ a dual-clutch transaxle for further packaging efficiency. Chevrolet was issued a patent especially for this transmission configuration, which will be controlled by shift paddles.

Contrary to what we initially thought, contributor Don Sherman reported earlier this spring that leaked CAD drawings indicate that the C7’s fiberglass transverse-leaf rear suspension will not continue to the C8.

aero

Though its design evolves from the C7’s, the C8 will sport aero specifically appropriate to its mid-engine design—most notably, those giant vents slashing through the rear fenders of the test mules we’ve seen. A recently-issued patent for an “active hybrid spoiler” may be mounted on the roof, and it’s possible this exciting type of aero feature could adorn the highest-tier C8. Given we’re likely only going to see the base C8 this month at the public reveal (higher-performing variants will surely follow), we expect some open questions will remain when it comes to the car’s full aerodynamic capabilities.

Don’t be surprised if the C8 drags behind it a price tag five or ten grand heavier than its front-engined predecessor. The hotly-debated decision to switch to a mid-engine layout reflects that the ambition for higher performance outweighs the arguments for tradition, which could result in an elevated price point for this new kind of ‘Vette. The current C7 Stingray coupe starts at $56,995 including destination fees, and we project the C8 could command as much as $70,000 when it finally hits showrooms.

Back in 2018, previous Corvette chief engineer Dave McLellan told Don Sherman that he saw upcoming hybrid versions of the C8 as “GM’s version of a Porsche 918 Spyder,” arguing that “Chevrolet needs to show potential buyers what it’s capable of delivering with a potent V-8, a hybrid-electric powertrain, and all-wheel drive.”

McLellan said he’s well aware that the market for mid-engine cars is well populated, and wants the price point of the C8 to draw attention to the newest ’Vette as a major mid-engine player.

More than 40 years after Zora Arkus-Duntov left his successors to fulfill his dream of a mid-engine Corvette, the car is finally on the cusp of becoming reality. Both the C8’s internal GM code name (ZERV—a Zora-themed play on the prior CERV concepts) and camouflage give a nod to him.

COTV Annual Picnic
June 9, 2019



As the date for the annual picnic drew nearer, the Leadership Team got more concerned as summer weather seemed never to arrive. Remember our Memorial Day 2019 MLR? Well, if you were there, you would remember the rain, cold and fog and just missing a snowfall at Lake Arrowhead. It seems that we fretted and worried in vain, as Summer is here, folks, and it arrived just in time for the picnic.

In 2019, we returned to a familiar former location for our picnic, Wolf Creek Park in Temecula. The advantages to this park are numerous – grassy lawns, easy to find location, gazebos with concrete picnic tables, restrooms (although they ARE park restrooms so no 5 star amenities!) and parking in either the lot or on the street backing the park. The disadvantages are less numerous but can be daunting – no reservations taken, no alcohol allowed, no food vendors on site just deliveries. 
So we worked around them to provide a happy day in the sun for the membership.

A group arrived early to stake out as many tables as needed with yellow caution tape, which means most of the park. Thanks to Ray and Judy for giving up their very early morning on a busy family day to meet at the park, clean tables, empty trash, do the preliminary set-ups, lay out the bocce ball court, and hang around until Doug and Marilyn arrived to continue with the early prep. Thanks to Bill Stedfield for picking up our old tables from Scott Dittmer at Precision and bringing them and a nice big cooler at 9am. Thanks to Wayne and Daphne for bringing their new car to continue helping to set things up. Thanks to John and Jerri-Lynne for helping with a Costco dessert shopping trip in advance. Thanks to Harry and Sharon for bringing the pop-ups to put over the food tables. Huge thanks to Curt and Darlena for so much – researching food vendors and ordering both Dickey’s barbecue and pizza, for bringing more chips from another Costco trip, and setting up a Hawaiian themed “photo booth” and taking numerous pictures of the happy attendees. Really Huge thanks to Mike Re for organizing the whole shebang, doing his own shopping for drinks, and being there early to set up and staying later to clean up.


We thank the members (we think there were 66 of you!) who came to have fun and to do what we do best, eat and talk. It was good to see both the old (in terms of membership, not age) members like Bill and Sandi, Joe and Rosemary, Vance and Susan and Mike and Micha, as well as the newer ones, the Erhardts, who are now turning up more and more so must be enjoying their car and maybe the company and the Orsinis who are not so new any more.

A final big thanks to those stalwart folks who stepped up to help clean up. The true worth of a friend is measured by their willingness to clean up someone else’s mess before an event and then clean up their own mess after one of our own. Good luck to whoever plans next year’s picnic, because Mike has set a high bar to meet!
