    I wonder if Corvette racing will have the new cars in 2018?? Remember Ford raced the GT before going on sale to the public.

  2. Terry Says:

    “So for all you suppliers in the audience looking to bid on future product, here’s a heads-up on when Chevy is going to re-do that car.”

    If they aren’t already working with Corvette Engineering, they are already out of consideration for a 2019 car.

  3. Chuck Grenci Says:

    Point taken Terry #2, however with production starting May ’19, there may be some ‘fruit’ still hanging on the vine. And the new Corvette will probably be a ’20 model. Whether Corvette racing will get a heads-start, they probably have already done so (with the stuff you can’t see), and will the new Vette be the much rumored mid-engined model or a new standard model (that accompanies the new mid). Exciting times for Corvette.

  4. Buzzerd Says:

    so can we stop calling these things “mini” vans, there isn’t much mini about them. How about just vans.

  5. Lex Says:

    I like all the tech going into the Odyssey, but what about the rest of the Honda / Acura line up? The Seven Seater Pilot or the Ridgeline even the MDX and RDX. What about Apple Car Play and Android Auto into every Honda and Acura?

  6. Kit Gerhart Says:

    #4. Yep. The current Odyssey is about two feet longer and 1500 pounds heavier than my 1989 Caravan.

  7. Albemarle Says:

    It was interesting to watch some of the evening driving videos from the Tesla 3 intro. Everyone was a super Tesla fan but they couldn’t help comparing the Model S with the Model 3, and giving a lot of insight on what is missing or doesn’t work well on the S. I wonder when we’ll get balanced reviews on electric cars covering the whole car and not just its range and price.

  8. Ziggy Says:

    Does anyone have a link to the extended version of the Ford truck 30 second spot that Sean mentioned? I didn’t see it in the show transcript. Thanks.

  9. David Sprowl Says:

    Since passenger car sales are dropping faster than a fly ball, I gotta wonder about the product planning that produces electric cars. Wonder what the take rate would be on say a smallish SUV with some marketing behind it. When I see an electric I’m thinking of a highly modified golf cart.
