Since the release of the dedicated Corvette Grand Sport page last month, I’ve been hitting the regular Corvette website to see the changeover from the 2009 model to the 2010 model information. Well, that switch has just happened within the last few days because Chevrolet is now displaying the 2010 Corvette at www.corvette.com.
Corvette’s 2010 website allows consumers to browse the four specific models in the six different body configurations: Coupe, Convertible, Grand Sport Coupe, Grand Sport Convertible, Z06 and ZR1. Each Corvette has it own photo gallery, a “Build Your Own” configurator, Features and Specs and a Competitive Comparison feature showing several competitors cars against that specific Corvette model.
Each model also has a scrolling list of features which include details on Corvette’s warranty, OnStar, XM Radio, and Genuine Corvette accessories. I found it helpful that there is a feature box that explains how racing makes for a better Corvette:

Tech transfer. It’s a term that means how experience in one area carries over to another. The Corvette has competed internationally for the past 10 years against some of the most renowned sports car marques in the world – Ferrari, Aston Martin and Lamborghini among others. That experience has helped make the Corvette stronger, lighter, faster and more aerodynamic. It has led to carbon-fiber body pieces, carbon ceramic brakes on the ZR1 and the 7.0L LS7 V8 engine on the Z06. So when you see a Corvette on the track, don’t assume it’s just a marketing exercise. It could be one of the better tech transfer stories in the business.
