Inferior roll over protection and lack of rear end handling stability create life threatening situation for owners of 2016 Chevrolet Corvette C7 and C7 Z06

When +General Motors newest Generation was first introduced, its chief engineer, +Tadge Juechter made sure to stress (pun intended) the importance of lighter aluminum chassis not just in the context of  handling improving rigidity improvement but increased passenger safety as well.



How does this work out in real life?  Not very well at all, considering that the newest generation of Corvette has a nasty habit of breaking its rear end loose at the least convenient moment, typically
leading to a very serious crash.





As this blog described in the past, the newest Corvette completely lacks any roll over protection, as demonstrated in this unfortunate accident.  Definitely, there is a serious problem with the rigidity and crash worthiness of the newest Corvette and this is very obvious in roll over crash scenario.  Fortunately, this time, there was no fatality involved but this is by pure luck, not GM's intent to offer any meaningful protection to the buyers of the current  generation of Corvette.



The lack of roll over protection becomes crucial, due to the fact that the newest Corvette generation lacks the roof curtain protective measures.  Time to implement actual roof structure and fixed roof, Tadge?
