Harlan Charles Confirms the Return of Admiral Blue on 2017 Corvettes


Great news for those Corvette enthusiasts who have the blues after it was announced earlier this year that Laguna Blue would be phased out of the Corvette exterior color palate in 2016. Blue is one of those colors that tends to wind up with in the middle of popular colors, so we didn’t doubt for a moment that there would be a new Blue exterior for 2017 Corvettes back in the line-up.

Only 1,000 Corvette Grand Sport Collector Edition Models Will Be Offered

Only 1,000 Corvette Grand Sport Collector Edition Models Will Be Offered


When Chevrolet took the stage earlier this week at the Geneva Motor Show to introduce the newest Corvette in the C7 line up, the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport, they used the occasion to premiere the limited Collector Edition version of the car to make its first public appearance.

Like the Grand Sport moniker, “Collector Edition” versions of Corvettes have graced showroom floors previously in Corvette’s long history. Interestingly, Chevy has presented Collector Editions in both 1982 and 1996, the final years of C3 and C4 production as a way to send off the car before introducing a new generation of Corvettes.

While we don’t think that is the case for the 2017 Grand Sport, offering a Collector Edition is great way to promote the new model as well as offer a limited edition specialty car within the model year’s first production cycle.

As soon as we finished posting yesterday’s introduction of the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport from the Geneva Motor Show, our attention turned to the business side as where we think this model will fall into the current C7 Corvette lineup. The Corvette Grand Sport will fall between the Corvette Stingray Z51 and the Corvette Z06 and therefore we believe the MSRP for the new Corvette will start at $69,795 (and yes, that includes the $995 destination fee).

Here in the upper Midwest 2 things signify the end of winter and the start of spring. The first is Detroit Tigers’ spring training and Detroit Autorama. Both indicate that (usually) the worst of the snow and cold are gone and sun and warm weather aren’t far way. That also means that the new cruising season is right around the corner.

Autorama is the first opportunity each year for enthusiasts to extricate their cars from hibernation and show them off to thousands of attendees. Last weekend marked our annual sojourn to Cobo Hall. You can see what we saw in the gallery below.

With 2016 being a Leap Year, Chevrolet called for people to #DayItForward. Essentially, what that means is that we all had an extra 24 hours this year with February 29th on the calendar, so why not do something nice for somebody?

In what was probably the most understated launch of a new Corvette model in our 10 years here, Chevrolet officially revealed the new 2017 Corvette Grand Sport at the Geneva Motor Show. Why Chevrolet choose to be so low key about the launch of this car is anyone’s guess, but we were willing to wake up at 4:30 am ET to catch the reveal via social media and this is what we’ve learned.
