  • John Buttermore Lead deveLopment engineer

    It earned these strIpes

    When Lead Development Engineer John Buttermore gets behind the wheel of a Corvette, he’s bringing years of track experience into every curve and straightaway. So it came as no surprise that Buttermore would channel the same passion into developing the all-new Sonic.

    “Road racing has been a hobby for years, and our team expends a lot of effort tuning our Corvette to get the best performance. Working on Sonic is no different. You have a set of components and you do your best to maximize their performance.”

    As part of a group of engineers that drove cross-country to test the sedan and hatchback, Buttermore saw his share of challenges: “Whether it’s coming down or climbing those twisting mountain roads, Sonic was planted, secure. When you’re driving down roads with no guardrail on the side, it’s good to have a car that’s confident, responsive and just very rewarding to drive.”

    If Buttermore could describe Sonic in one word, it would be “fun.” “We have a lot of selling points on safety and fuel economy,1 which are sensible reasons to own a car, but at the end of the day, you spend a lot of time in your car. We want everyone to enjoy that time. And fun is the best way to describe that feeling.”

    It’s been a long road, but this is one launch Buttermore is really looking forward to. “What’s rewarding about doing this is seeing all the triumphs, all the effort that goes into developing a vehicle and then seeing it all come together. We were very confident that these cars would perform well and they did. But what’s more rewarding is seeing it in person. You come with high expectations and then you get to look at what the cars can do, and point and say, ‘We did that.’ There’s nothing like it.”

    It can be an anxious moment, especially with a manual transmission. You’ve stopped for a red light on an incline, and as the light changes, you slowly slide backward. Horns honk and suddenly you wish you lived in Kansas. Well, we’re here to help, my friend. Sonic has a nifty advanced technology feature called Hill Start Assist. How does it work? Basically, it helps by keeping the brakes engaged for a split second while the driver transitions from the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal. Once the accelerator pedal is depressed the brakes are automatically rel
