Post John Heinricy retires from GM after 40 years

If you’ve seen the famous CTS-V vs. M5 battle, you know who John Heinricy is. If you’ve seen the new Z06-ZR1 you must know who he is.

Having had a hand in several of the vehicles in the performance division of General Motors, Heinricy is leaving behind a legacy that will be hard to match. Not only a decorated engineer, but also a world class driver, Heinricy ends his career with GM after 40 years. Perhaps he wanted to call it quits before GM went belly up, who knows. He will be sadly missed.

John Heinricy, the man behing General Motors Performance Division, has announced that he will be retiring from GM. Heinricy started with GM almost 40 years ago and has had a hand in some of the automakerís most exciting and important vehicles.

Even if you donít know Heinricy by name, you know his creations. He was responsible for the original Cadillac CTS and the new CTS-V, the Corvette Z06 and ZR1, and the Chevy Cobalt SS, among others.

In addition to his duties as an engineer, Heinricy was also one of GMís most decorated drivers. Heinricy recently took home an SCCA title behind the wheel of a Cobalt SS and holds the Nurburgring lap record for a stock sedan Ė 7 minutes and 59 seconds ó accomplished in the new CTS-V.

Heinricy will be greatly missed at GM and we only hope that his passion will be carried out in future GM products.

Thats probably true too. But these 25000 employees that do nothing better start looking for work the UNION is killing all 3 of the big 3 Between the 3 automakers they have nearly 25000 people in the Jobs bank/Union Pool. All employees that are PAID not to work. Gee am I the only one that sees a problem with this. I know the Execs made the deals that put them their but time to change that and the UNIONS won't let it go. Well I'd fire the entire union if it was my company either deal or be fired 2 options no other options on the table.
