In developing the C7 Corvette Stingray, GM had considered stop-start technology, but nixed the idea, deciding it would hurt the car’s image. But, that doesn’t mean that we won’t see start-stop technology in the C7 at some point (read the entire report).
Asked if it is inevitable that stop-start technology may be standard on a future Corvette Stingray, Juechter said “it may be.” “But is that something we lead in (with the redesigned car),” he mused. “Or is that something we do when we are forced to do? It is possible.”
