Here you go. The more I look at this, the more I like it. Certainly not going to swap this out for something costing $80-$100 no matter whatís on it.

Thanks, I always wondered. That is good looking!

Mine is body-colored and numbered, and I've never paid attention to the dash plaque in the few other C7s I've been in.

And if you google "Corvette dash plaque" mine is the first pic.

Thatís the problem. The stock one is by far the best looking

I've swapped mine out twice, once for the performance badge and once for the Stingray one. For me the plain Stingray one looks the best as the color matches the trim so much better, helps tie the interior together, at least with a black one. I've never been happy with the chrome colored bits and the chrome stingray ties it together.

I thought I was the only one who didn't like the grand sport logo/plaque...

I just recently swapped it out for this one, looks way better imo.

My order is for a Z06 so I'm starting to wonder how many center console plaques are available. Here is my list so far...
- Stingray
- Grand Sport
- Z06 (HP/Torque/Stats)
- Jake Corvette Racing (Thread Title)
- Museum Delivery & Build Date
- Owner Name

Did I miss any? I assume the ZR1 probably has a special one as well.

There are two Premiere Edition plaques; blue coupe and green convertible with each showing xxx/500 (blue) or xxx/550 (green)

I wish there was one that wasn't tacky or dumb.

OEM grand sport looks like a dick and *****. And it's f*cking chrome for some stupid reason.
Compression ratio? It's just trying too hard.
CORVETTE RACING!!!! No, it's not a race car. Try again.

Just one that says "Grand Sport" would be great. Or quite frankly, nothing.

The Corvette Racing plaque came on my '15 Z51. The PO must have added it. I actually like it.

Actually, that one just replicates the factory console badge found on earlier generations such as this plate from a 69.

It was stupid in 1969, too.

Basic Stingray one looks the best. Where can I buy that?

Found a few more. The C7R had a custom badge and there are some vendors like GS Creations that create custom badges based on your build.





Although I like the Corvette Racing Jake badge, I will probably stick with the standard Z06 badge.

Does anyone make one that just says "Grand Sport" like the side vents?
