Throughout the early 1900’s, leading car manufacturers across Europe competed against one another to provide their customers with the fastest and most maneuverable vehicles. To a majority of the racing world, the Americans were absent. Even to this day, many enthusiasts still refer to the Corvette as America’s first Sports Car. However, despite being small in number, there were American manufacturers that sought glory through winning in the early days of the automobile. This Demo Day covered their story.
As just the sixth head of design for General Motors and the first person ever to lead GM Design globally, Ed Welburn is one of the most influential vehicle designers of his time.
The Corvette is considered to be one of the most thrilling and captivating automotive designs of all time. For over 60 years and 8 iterations, these cars have become a symbol of freedom and adventure, and have ultimately made their mark as America's Sports Car!
