Former Corvette Chief Engineer Dave McLellan who led the Corvette platform from 1975 through 1992 is planning on launching a Corvette podcast on his forthcoming website CorvetteChief.com. Appearing on the Podcast Answer Man, Dave says his 18 years at the helm of Corvette in addition to his close proximity with Corvette fans will be the basis of planned topics. McLellan followed in the very big footsteps of Corvette’s first Chief Engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov who retired in 1975. Under McLellan’s watch, new technologies were introduced to Corvette including ABS, traction control, airbags, keyless entry and extended mobility tires. He produced the first 140 mph Corvette in more than a decade and his crown achievement was development of the original King of the Hill, the Corvette ZR-1.
“I interact with enough Corvette folks in a years time that I have a pretty good sense of the kinds of questions that people want to ask about the car, or about me or about you know the guys who are doing the car today.” Said McLellan, “It makes the most sense to start out just talking about things I know and are interesting to me and that I think will be interesting to other people and then let it branch from there and that’s where feedback is very useful.”The new podcast will be produced by BitCastMedia.com and will be appearing on Dave’s soon-to-be-released website, CorvetteChief.com. We’ll keep an ear to the intertubes for more details when the site goes live.
