Corvette Today is a spectacular podcast focused on all things Corvette, and today’s episode is truly special as three massive figures for Corvette have made an appearance. Corvette brand Manager Harlan Charles, Chief Engineer Josh Holder, and Executive Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter. Each of these significant people has appeared on the podcast individually in the past, but this is the first time that all three have appeared simultaneously, which is why this particular Corvette Today podcast is considered The Summit.
Corvette Today: “The Summit” Episode
All “three musketeers” are informative, insightful, and funny, and they’ll be spending the hour-long podcast answering your questions from MidEngineCorvette Forum and Corvette Forum. Unfortunately, if you missed the chance to ask, there might not be another opportunity, though your question might have come up from someone else or may have been answered by one of the three amid the podcast, which is available to watch through YouTube.
Amongst the conversations regarding the C8, the three spent a chunk of time discussing the additions made to the 2024 model-year Corvette, which should increase the vehicle’s safety and convenience. Additionally, they discussed the Corvette E-Ray and how the powertrain functions with the combination of the LT2 engine and the electric motor out of the front to create the mechanical AWD, along with providing the right amount of torque to ensure it still feels like a Corvette.
The three also touched on why an official lap time for the Z06 around the Nurburgring wasn’t revealed; they have a pretty good idea of what it is, but given that the ideal conditions and everything else didn’t align, they won’t release it. However, they could make their way back to that track in the future if the “stars align”. In fact, the remarks from the Corvette Trinity echo our original report from 2021 outlining that the world would have to wait for an official Z06 ‘Ring time.
We recommend watching the entire video when you can; it’s super informative for anybody curious on deeper details on the C8 Corvette.
