Perhaps GM is not as bullish on Corvette as we thought!
Keith Cornett (see his CorvetteBlogger posting on the subject yesterday) has queried why there is no communication from GM about management changes at Corvette, and it is a fair question. Other bloggers (see The AutoExtremist yesterday, as an example) are wisely pointing out that GM is at the precipice of ruin.
With so many huge issues to deal with – federal government bailouts or loan guarantees, political changes, even survival — frankly it is not a surprise that the some of the standard niceties like press releases may get neglected. However, we would still like to have them.
We need to hope, even pray, that GM survives to build the Corvette we love so much well into the future! I think we’ll take a leaner, maybe even a meaner, General Motors and Chevrolet, but let us have more gorgeous and capable vehicles like the ZR1 and Z06!
