Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter on the next Chevrolet Corvette – Click above to watch the video
At the annual C5/C6 Bash at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter took the mic to dispel a few myths about the next-generation C7 Corvette. The first myths he addressed were those he said could be found in Automobile Magazine, and his manner of dispelling them was to give Automobile and the entire automotive print journalism industry a beatdown worthy of an MMA pay-per-view bout.
Then, having saved a few backhands and knees-to-the-gut for the Environmental Protection Agency, he preemptively addressed any erroneous ideas that CAFE requirements will emasculate the next-gen Corvette, which is still a few years away. There isn't much hard content, but it's good enough to hear him make sure everyone knows that the next Corvette will still be a suitable mascot for hairy chests. Follow the jump to watch the vid.
UPDATE: Automobile Magazine has published a response to Tadge Juechter's criticisms.
