Chevrolet Just Revealed the 2023 C8 Corvette Before the REVEAL???

Chevrolet just revealed the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 BASE model on Twitter and Instagram and we are seeing mixed messages from potential customers and Corvette fans online.

Most C8 Corvette owners like it but aren’t “wowed” especially the C8 Corvette owners that already have heavily modified their current C8 Corvettes with wheels, exhausts, lowering springs ect…

Also, Chevrolet is really teasing the new C8 Z06 since we all know from the Nurburgring videos of the C8 Z06 that there are going to be variants and a track focused C8 Z06 with a bird like wing with a Z07 package.

It will be interesting to see what happens on October 26th when we get to see every C8 Z06 variant and option including the details of the flat plane crank engine, C8 Z06 convertible, performance numbers, C8 Z06 colors, and possible weight reduction with a magnesium DCT.

C8 Corvette Stingray Prices FINALLY Coming Back Down?

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.

Even in the last month or so in 2021 there are still dealers marking up the C8 Corvette at 50k as shown here too. And recently a 25,000 mile C8 Corvette that was tracked hard sold for $85k at Carmax which is still insane especially with that high of miles in such a short period of time of less than 2 years.

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.

What do you think will happen to the C8 Corvette Pricing? Leave a comment

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.

C8 Corvette Z06 Testing in Columbus, Ohio

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.

Hope you enjoy them as much as Roger and I have.

Thanks Roger!

C8 Corvette FULL Fabspeed Motorsport Exhaust, Headers, and Sport Cats

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.

That’s right you can order a full Fabspeed C8 Corvette Exhaust from the headers back.

Here is a video they just launched that shows the sound difference although video really hard to capture the true sound of the Fabspeed Headers, Sport Cats, and cat back exhaust for the Corvette C8.

Here’s What CARMAX Offered for my 25,000 Mile C8 Corvette

Check out this video from Speed Phenom where he takes is track driven 25,000 mile 2LT C8 Corvette to Carmax and see what he is offered.

It’s actually pretty insane after being low balled by come Chevy Dealers in the 60-70k range because of the high mileage. Does Carmax go even lower?

He has a 2022 C8R Edition C8 Corvette coming and already had a 600LT Mclaren as well so its time for him to sell his C8 Corvette he received at the Corvette Museum and drove across the country to California.

We actually posted a Carmax C8 Corvette offer back in October 2020 so you can see the difference almost a year later the two offers. The other one was a 1LT C8 Corvette.
