At the seminar, attendees will hear from executives who designed GM vehicles including the Next Generation Chevrolet Corvette, which will be revealed in Orange County, California, on July 18. 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.

Tom Peters, former chief Corvette designer, will engage in a fireside chat about his career, insights and what it was like to work on the iconic vehicle. Peters will answer audience questions following his chat.

“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,” said Simcoe. “Attendees will be treated to unique perspectives and stories from a number of our lead designers.”

Doors to the seminar open at 9:30 a.m. More information and tickets can be found at
