Check out this video from Cars, Costs and Technology on his take on C8 Corvette Pricing. Do you think he is right and the pricing will come down?
He does say its going to hold it’s value and thinks it will stay above what you paid for it but thinks the 25-30k mark ups are going to go away. Funny enough we posted about the C8 Z06 is going to be marked up as researched from us personally and by one of Speed Phenom’s videos. And most dealers have lists of over 1000 people wanted a C8 Z06 and again is going to be hard to get and marked up.
So not really sure how much the C8 Corvette pricing will come down if at all in the next year since its going to be hard to get a C8 Z06 and the production levels of the C8 Corvette is still a lot lower than the C7 Corvettes. And C7 Corvettes are still selling for high prices with the used car market, inflation, strike, plant closures, and chip shortages. There really hasn’t been any sign from Chevy or General Motors they are going to double production. And the C8 Z06 is just going to create even more buzz for the brand and people wanting to get a C8 Corvette even if they can’t get the C8 Z06.

Breaking News from HorsePower Obsessed on YouTube from Vette Titans and Brandon Byer’s Facebook page.
Brandon from Vette Titans spotted the C8 Z06 in the hard top convertible just like Chevy offers in the base C8 Corvette Stingray model. Brandon caught the C8 Z06 out testing in the streets and one of them putting the top down and follows them for a good 6 minutes or so.
The current C8 Corvette convertibles are an extra $7,500 for that option with the C8 Z06 pricing isn’t confirmed yet and there are no details until October 26th 2021 reveal date.
2023 C8 Z06 CONVERTIBLE ~ MY JOURNEY TO CAPTURE THEM
It looks like their will be 3 variants of the C8 Z06 in 2023, a base model C8 Z06, a C8 Z06 with the Z07 track package, and a C8 Z06 convertible. Although this one seems real quiet in the video like the new C8 Corvette E Ray will be.
This video below is from Mid Engine Corvette Forum (see description below video)
A good friend of mine, Roger, made my day this morning.
Roger checked into the hotel outside Columbus, Ohio Tuesday night and noticed a C8 parked out back. Upon further investigation, lo and behold four Z06 test mules were staying in the hotel. Roger is on the list to buy a C8 Z06 so is very aware of this car.
Next morning Roger was able to listen to them as they left the hotel parking lot and accelerate onto the freeway. The exhaust sound of four of the Z06’s was exceptional! The last one drove by leaving the parking lot in silent mode, no exhaust sound, even getting up on the freeway. Apparently moving under all electric power. Assuming the E Ray.
Here are some photos and video Roger was able to take. Security was very tight.
As we covered many times before since Fabspeed Motorsport was one of the first companies to develop and launch a cat back exhaust for the C8 Corvette as well as sport cats they have now launched a full system including Headers.
