GM can build a crossover based on the Corvette sports coupeJune 25, 2019
In the event that the American concern really decides to create a new crossover, which will be built on the basis of the Corvette sports model, its price is rumored to be at the level of 100 thousand dollars. In this case, the Corvette designation would become a new brand.
Bob Lutz, a well-known automotive person who also worked with BMW, Chrysler, Ford and General Motors, believes that the American company Chevy should create a sports crossover under the Corvette brand. The car should be similar to the German mid-size crossover Porsche Cayenne, the cost of which starts from 100,000 dollars. Well, this is quite an interesting theory of Bob Lutz. It can be considered insane … it’s up to you, but still it was he who worked quite fruitfully with the companies listed above.
Mr. Lutz, told in an interview with Automotive News, that while working for the American concern GM, he would be in favor of promoting a separate Corvette brand. According to him, he has great potential.
He proposed to the management to create a super-powerful and lightweight crossover that would be much better and a little more than the German Porsche Cayenne. Circulation of new items should be from 20 000 to 30 000 units worldwide. It would be an uncompromising premium crossover with a magnificent interior and a powerful propulsion system – without the V6. Lutz believes that the Corvette brand can accomplish this feat.
This is not the first time that someone offers to make an independent brand from Corvette. A few years ago, there were rumors that the Chevy brand was going to create a Corvette for its own brand with a number of different versions.
