The design team for the mid-engine Corvette C8 will speak at the upcoming Historic General Motors Design Seminar in Michigan, sharing insights on what it was like to work on the innovative sports car.
The seminar, which will be hosted during the 2019 Concours d’Elegance of America in Plymouth later this month, will be hosted by vice president of GM Global Design, Michael Simcoe. The main event will be the ‘fireside chat’ with former Corvette design Tom Peters, who will talk about his career at GM and the design processes for the various projects he worked on – including the mid-engine Corvette C8, of course.
“Since the Next Generation Corvette features a mid-engine configuration, designers will speak to the unique opportunities and challenges presented by a mid-engine vehicle,” GM said in a statement.
Simcoe says attendees of the Historic GM Design Seminar “will be treated to unique perspectives and stories from a number of our lead designers.” He and his team will also take questions from the audience, so if you have anything you’d like to ask some of the top designers from GM past and present, this will be the place to do it.
“Concours d’Elegance of America has a long, respected history celebrating the beauty of automotive design, and that’s a history we intend to honor properly,” Simcoe added.
The seminar will be hosted from 10-11 am EST on July 27th at The Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, Michigan. Tickets are available at this link. The mid-engine Corvette C8 is set to make its highly anticipated debut in Orange County, California, on July 18th.
