Chevrolet Design Brings Excitement to Concours d’Elegance of America

Chevrolet designers will peel back the curtain on the design elements behind the Next Generation Corvette

2019-07-10

PLYMOUTH, Mich. — The leadership behind some of Chevrolet’s most pivotal design milestones in recent history will share their insights and answer audience questions at the 2019 Concours d’Elegance of America on July 27. Michael Simcoe, vice president, GM Global Design, will host the Historic GM Design Seminar from 10-11 a.m. EDT at The Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, Michigan.

At the seminar, attendees will hear from executives who designed prominent GM vehicles including the Next Generation Chevrolet Corvette, which will be revealed in Orange County, California, on July 18. Since the Next Generation Corvette features a mid-engine configuration, designers will speak to the unique opportunities and challenges presented by a mid-engine vehicle.

Tom Peters, former chief Corvette designer, will engage in a fireside chat about his career, insights and what it was like to work on the iconic vehicle. Peters will answer audience questions following his chat.

“Concours d’Elegance of America has a long, respected history celebrating the beauty of automotive design, and that’s a history we intend to honor properly,” said Simcoe. “Attendees will be treated to unique perspectives and stories from a number of our lead designers.”

Doors to the seminar open at 9:30 a.m. More information and tickets can be found at https://concoursusa.org/.

Thank you for posting this and for posting the link to Corvette Blogger's Posting, which reads in part:

"The official press release doesn’t mention if the C8 Corvette will be on display during the Concours, but we think chances are high considering this event is taking place in GM’s backyard."

If I knew the C8 was definitely going to be there, I would definitely go!

Default Excitement is an interesting word

From the Shamu Caprice to the Aztek, to the Cobalt, to the Malibu, to the bizarre re-do of the Camaro, to the bizarre Silverado, to the rear end on the C8, I would think not many of these designers would want to be seen in public.
