Retiring GM Design Chief Ranks C7 Corvette as Most Cherished Project
Would you expect anything less from any top official on the GM team that was involved in the design of the C7?
I mean c’mon, the chance for an executive like Ed Welburn to retire from the company on the heels of launching one of the most groundbreaking, modern-day sports cars in America is the stuff that dreams are made of.
Sure, the global design chief has had more than a few major wins during his 44-year with GM. But it’s clear that the design of the C7 is what Welburn treasures most, as expressed to a group of journalists recently, according to a GM Authority report.
“You’ve got the history of that brand; you want to build on that history,” Welburn said. “It needs to be a Corvette and not resemble anything else, and yet it’s got to be new and it’s got to be different.”
Mission accomplished. Congrats on a job well done, Mr. Welburn.
