The Corvette Stingray Marketing Plan will Target Wives and Highlight Luxury in Advertisements

We’re beginning to get more of the background behind the changes, controversial to some traditionalists, to the 2014 Corvette Stingray.

The new rear treatment, for example. Had Chevy stuck with the round tail lights that date back to 1963, “research showed that people who were not Corvette loyalists would look at the car, especially the rear end, and they would think the car never changed,” said John Fitzpatrick, Chevrolet’s marketing manager for the redesigned Corvette. “They think it is the same car from 20 years ago.”

Last week at the C7 Corvette Stingray Media Drive event in Monterey, Chevy had an autocross course set up on a concrete tarmac just behind the airplane hanger where the entire event was staged.

[VIDEO] 2014 Corvette Stingray's Advanced Dash Displays

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. There’s a lot of technology in the 2014 Corvette Stingray. One of the major advances in the new C7 is the processing of that technology and how its displayed in a way that enhances the driving experience.

When you slide behind the wheel and hit the start button, the dash of the Corvette Stingray springs to life, both through its analog gauges and through the customizable eight inch high-definition screen in the middle of the gauge cluster.

Since the ordering process for the 2014 Corvette Stingray began in late May, we have noticed a huge increase in the amount of chatter on the forums about status codes and TPWs. TPW stands for “Target Production Week” and during normal production, they will usually give the buyer a fairly accurate forecast for when their Corvette will be built. But because the Corvette Stingray hasn’t officially started retail sales production, the TPWs that customers are getting through the Chevrolet customer service system may not be accurate and that appears to be causing concern – both for the customer and the Corvette production team.

We reached out to Corvette Marketing Manager John Fitzpatrick to get more information about the production schedule and the processes that will happen before the plant starts shipping the new C7 Corvette Stingrays to dealers.
