Podcast: Z06 Corvette, Blue Devil/Stingray/SS and the C7 Corvette

by Keith Cornett on October 10, 2006

2006 Z06 CorvetteI just stumbled across this podcast from Open Road Podcast which was posted September 22nd. The discussion of the Z06 Corvette by the commentators covers the good, the bad and the ugly of the new Z06 Corvette. Mr. Black, as the story goes, finally coaxed a Z06 loaner from GM for a week and the podcast covers the countless burnouts, powerslides and the phenomenal horsepower of the 7.0 liter engine. His comments on the failings of the Z06 are blunt though so don’t get expect a puff piece. His rant about the interior and gearbox may be useful to those within the Corvette engineering/design team. Following the Z06 review is some talk about the Blue Devil/Stingray/SS Corvette. The last part of the conversation details the design of the C7 Corvette. Supposedly, the car is in now in the design stage and from sources who are knowledgeable of the project say that it has some overtones of the Midyear Coupe without being too retro looking. Specifically the term “Split Window” was used. Hmmm…. The guys behind the Open Road Podcasts are consultants within the auto industry and therefore their pseudo names (Mr. Black, Mr. White, Mr. Blonde) allow them to discuss insider information without fear of prosecution. These guys were a lot of fun to listen to and this particular podcast was a great listen. You can download the podcast from their website or subscribe to the Open Road Podcast at iTunes.
